Inspiration IS Catchy!

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

So yesterday while I was perusing blogs, I decided on my favorite blogger look of the day. The prize went to Jeimy of Jeimy's Fashion Love Affair.  The look she wore in this post was inspired by the below Vera Bradley Ad she saw in InStyle Magazine.  I in turn  was inspired by her stripes, blue, and pink ensemble and put together my look for work today! Here is the order of Cascading Inspiration...

InStyle Magazine Ad for Vera Bradley

Jeimy's Look Inspired by the Ad

And My Look Inspired by Jeimy

Top: New York & Company
Pants: Old Navy
Flats: Marc Fisher (Macy's)
So the inspiration was clearly stripes and pink and blue, and Jeimy nailed her look against that ad perfectly! I on the other hand do not own any of these wonderful colors, but I still wanted to do stripes and pink and blue, so this was my take. I also tried to wear heels with these pants...but they looked a tad "flooded" so I opted to Flats.

Style Tip: Tired of your boring everyday work uniform of pants and a top? Try adding a scarf, or a brooch, or a flower pin. Anything to dress up your look. Without this scarf this would have just been an everyday outfit for work!
