Outfit Post: Simply Inspired

Why does Monday always come so quickly. Every Friday I make big plans for all the things I’m going to accomplish and then Sunday afternoon rolls around and I’ve checked little to nothing off the list.

I’m heading out of town tomorrow evening so I’m trying to up my productivity (at work and home) today so I can leave without being totally stressed out. This outfit was worn on a decidedly less stressful day, a weekend one where you can get away with wandering.

Earlier this year, I did a month long series of outfit {pin}spirations, putting my closet’s spin on looks I love. Since I’ve been in a bit of a fashion funk, I’ve decided to try and spark the challenge up again.

If I could, I would copy everyone of Julie’s {Sincerely Jules} looks but I lack the slim build, budget and jet setter lifestyle to pull most of them off. Every once in a while she’s rocking something that I can translate and when I added these blue loafers to my closet, I knew I had to try my hand at this look. (p.s. – bummed I can’t find the original post – if anyone can find it, let me know!)

I took a little liberty and added the jacket to combat the fall chill but otherwise tried my best to channel her simple look.

White Button T-Shirt: Gap; Jeans: J.Crew Factory (on sale now!); Cobalt Blue Loafers: Cole Haan from T.J. Maxx (couldn’t find them in blue but they have them in red here) ; Military Jacket: Forever 21 (old, seen here)

    I pinned this outfit on pinterest before I knew it was from your website. All i saw was blue shoes and I knew I had to pin it. I love how you put this together. Looks quite effortless and comfortable. I will be imitating this!

    That jacket looks almost exactly like the JCrew one out right now! Love it, so simple with the white button down and the pop of cobalt!
