Copy Cat| Preppy in Green

More navy… SORRY! 🙂

It must be my muse of the moment or something.

So about today’s outfit…

I always love pulling inspiration from other places, especially when it gives me ideas about how to style the coloured bottoms I have like this green pencil skirt pictured below.

Wait – but there’s no green pencil skirt in the inspiration picture!

You’re right. However, I had a similar shirt (that I never thought to wear to work because of the bagginess) and although I like the colour combination of navy and mustard… I didn’t have a mustard pencil skirt.

I did have a green one though and the look would work with any fitted coloured bottom really (might try it with my pink skinny jeans next time).

The look really works because there is a nice contrast in shapes. The top is more loose and flowy and the pencil skirt is fitted so the whole look isn’t too sloppy OR too restrictive.

Have you broken out any coloured bottoms that have been hibernating in your closet all winter?

What colour were you drawn to first? Tell me in the comments!

Copy Cat: Blue and Stripes

I don’t know if it’s just easier to admire the style of someone who looks like you…but I’ve always admired Michelle William’s sense of style.

I’ve actually had this particular inspiration photo of her for a while but never acted on it.

But anyways, last Friday was casual Friday of course and the striped top with blue cropped pants seemed like the perfect outfit for something low key but not plain old jeans…

I LOVE her tuxedo blazer with the black lapels but a) I only have a plain white one and b) I wanted to go a bit more casual since it was Friday.

Spring Colour Inspiration : Maroon, Cream and Neon

image

Well…it seems spring came and went in Vancouver already (I’m sure it’ll return) but that doesn’t mean I’m going back to tights.

Ohhhhh NO!

My Spring Style is all about the bare legs. It’s happening if the weather cooperates or not. See how serious I am?

I did, however, go with a kind of transition outfit today with a cozy short sleeve cream sweater but threw in a little spring sassy-ness with the low back and the neon yellow zipper.
