outfit post: polka-dot top, black jacket, blue cropped pants


Inspiration - Karolina Kurkova

This outfit is almost the exact same as the one I wore in January with burgundy cropped pants. I think tucking the shirt in, adding a belt and wearing a jacket instead of cardigan makes it a more business casual (emphasis on the casual) appropriate sort of look compared to the first time I wore it.

Some days (like this one) I wish this blog was just photos of me in my clothes instead of having to stand next to beautiful celebrities and drop dead gorgeous super models everyday. People who's very job it is is to make clothing look amazing. Photos that have stylists, makeup artist, people ironing and paying attention to tiny fit & photographic details that would never eve occur to me.

Other days (most days actually) I love the blog layout of before/after/inspiration/recreation and showing where the idea came from no matter who I'm standing next to. I guess today I just didn't feel like a 10 foot tall glamazon. :)

  1. You always look fab! And that's without a crew setting up the shots for a magazine. Your clothes always look great, fit well and I always like your outfit better than the inspiration! Love this look for work. Not sure I could pull off cropped pants/heels but looks very cool/professional on you.

  2. I LOVE those cobalt blue pants! I'm on a blue kick these days, so I would love to find a similar pair. Guess I need to check out the "similar" links you included!

  3. I just have to tell you that of all the blogs I follow, yours is my hands down favorite. Everything you put together are outfits I can actually recreate or draw inspiration from -and still feel like I can wear them in the 'real world'. Thanks for helping me be creative with my wardrobe, and for the inspiration!

  6. Love, love, love this outfit. Perfect!!!! By the way dont' knock yourself, Celebrities have stylist and hair people to help keep them gorgeous. You look amazing, way better than the celebrity and plus your style and look is real. There's isn't. I read your blog because you show how real women can wear what celebrities wear.

  10. Honestly, I love your outfit a MILLION times better than the inspiration pic. And that's the case for pretty much all of your posts. Everything always fits you so well. I love those pants but not sure I could ever pull it off.
