Last Saturday I woke up early to head down to the Georgia DDS (department of driver services) and get my Georgia license. It was early and and I was trying to beat the crowds, so my Outfit Inspiration Calendar came in handy. I didn’t even have to look at it. The process of selecting my inspiration photos at the beginning of the month proved helpful in a time crunch, because I kinda had an idea of some of the pieces in my closet that I wanted to wear.
So here are the two inspirational looks for today’s look. The first is a look from LOFT’s Looks We Love. Fur is one of my favorite trends this season and the weather was finally cold enough to break out the fur during the day. I do love the simplicity of the denim + fur + khaki combo, but I was also inspired by the pretty printed blouse in the second inspirational look from the Simply Vera Fall Lookbook (via Fabsugar). It’s so easy to get stuck in a black and brown rut in the fall, so I love to see a vibrant fall color palette.
Well, here is my inspired look…
|Jacket: Wilson’s Leather Store | Sweater: Old | Blouse: Tucker for Target | Jeans: Virtue | Belt: Steve Madden ($9.99, TJ Maxx | Necklace: Forever 21 | Bag: Nine West ($34.99, TJ Maxx)|
I have actually had this jacket for at least 5 years now. It was a gift from my dad (the kind of gift that I called and asked for the money to buy…Lol!) . I got it at Wilson’s Leather Store and it was $69 on sale. Yes, I remember all of this from 5 years ago. Animal rights activists are going to kill me, but the fur is real. (Sorry!) This is the kinda jacket that you can keep for a lifetime if it’s well taken care of, and while it may need to get stored away for a couple years here and there it will always come back in style! I love that it combines THREE of this fall’s hottest trends… camel, fur, and the leather bomber! Isn’t it wonderful?
So, the second inspirational look comes into play with my blouse and sweater. I actually don’t own a watercolor print blouse like the Simply Vera blouse, but the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw the picture was my fave Tucker for Target blouse. The floral print is definitely fall friendly and topped with my avocado-green chunky turtleneck sweater, it created the vibrant fall floral palette I was looking for!
Is anyone else excited to see wide-leg and flared jeans back in style? Not that they were ever complete out, but skinnies seemed to rule the jeans market for so long. I love a good flared leg. I’ve had these Virtue brand wide leg jeans for years, too. They are extra long and I think they have a fabulous retro look to them.
I thought the green belt was a nice finishing touch for the outfit. It’s Steve Madden and I picked it up TJ Maxx for $9.99 (along with my new Mulberry “Alexa” Bag Look-a-like bag
by Nine West!). I love the extra long and knotted belt trend. You can buy belts that are intentionally made with a an extra long end for this, but I’ve found that braided belts are an easy and less expensive way to achieve this look because they are completely adjustable. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned that green is my absolute favorite color. Of course, when I saw this green braided belt I had to have it!
So, I did get my Georgia license and I sadly turned in my CA license. Why can’t they just let you keep it as a souvenir? Oh well, I guess I am officially a Georgia Peach now!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
