Outfit Post: Watermelon

If you’re one of the lucky people off of work today, consider me jealous. I definitely would have loved an extra day this weekend. It was a good one and I was especially happy to see the Ravens make it to the Super Bowl.

Today I’m keeping the outfit inspiration rolling, this time I’m back drawing from my Pinterest board (in case you didn’t hear about my self-imposed challenge – you can find more here and here). I saw this adorable look from Pink Peonies and knew I could give this one a whirl since I already own the herringbone vest she’s wearing (which you’ve seen before here). Turtlenecks aren’t my bag (can’t deal with things up around my neck) so I swapped it out for a bright button-down. I confess, the shoes weren’t my first choice but I couldn’t find my simple black flats anywhere in the dark black hole of my closet, so I had to settle for these.

p.s. – Have to wish my favorite person & best guy (aka my husband) Drew a very happy birthday!

Button-down: J.Crew (on sale!); Herringbone Vest: J.Crew; Pants: Gap; Leopard Flats: Target; Bracelets: BaubleBar (and others unknown); Necklace: BaubleBar
