Outfit: Gray Inspired Navy

Jan 24, 2013

We’re back in everyone’s favorite office park (wait, it’s not your favorite? okay, maybe just mine) for today’s inspiration post. I promise to get back to interesting, engaging backgrounds shortly (more to come next week) but I’m keeping up with my resolution/goal to capture all of my “pinspired looks.

Today’s outfit inspiration comes from Mary at Happily Grey. If you’re on Pinterest (and I’m guessing you are) then you’ve no doubt re-pinned one of her effortless, casual-chic looks. I absolutely love her style and she’s inadvertently inspired plenty of my outfits this winter (like this one). I remember seeing this look when she originally posted it earlier this month and rediscovered it yesterday while hunting for new outfits to copy (I mean, let’s call a duck a duck). This one was a perfect fit because it had my favorite – polka dots – along with an anorak giving me the perfect opportunity to bust out this Ali Ro one I hadn’t worn in a while.

My twists: I didn’t have a navy polka dot button-down, so I opted for this blouse (weird that I would have a polka-dot silk blouse right?) and instead of gray denim, I went with a navy blue pair. I also added the necklaces to go along with the gold buttons on the anorak. I know I’ve said it more than once but it’s been a good exercise in practicality shopping my own closet rather than online. That being said, I’ve compiled quite a wish-list but I’m definitely thinking more about whether I really need something rather than wearing it once and listing it on eBay shortly thereafter.

To make the inspiration complete, I added a little filter a la Happily Grey to the first pic to really pay hommage to her look!

Polka Dot Blouse: Old Navy (old but similar here and here); Anorak: Ali Ro; Jeans: ZARA; Boots: Frye (old); Necklaces: Jami, Gigglosophy (on sale for $10!) and Anthropologie; Watch: Timex; Bracelets: Jewelry Nut Auctions and Stella & Dot; Sunglasses: Michael Kors
