(Or at least portions of both my right and my left arms.)
Melanie at Big Mama linked to both of us several Fridays ago, and we have struck up a bit of a bloggy frienship!
So, we have decided to link to each other today.
I’m going to create an outfit based upon her undeniable GENIUS.
And she is going to do what I do, and recreate a Pinterest outfit.
You aren’t going to believe her look. It is flipping awesome.
But I’m thinking it might speak to you too!
Her new fav consists of: skinny jeans, a sleeveless shirt, and a pair of tall boots.
I don’t know why, but this was like one of those Oprah “Aha!” moments for me.
I have never in my life worn boots and a sleeveless shirt.
That Carly. She’s cute…..and she’s smart.
I have worn a version of this look 3 times in the last 2 weeks, and I’ve received boat loads of compliments each time.
Let’s not talk about the fact that it seems as if I was pinning things at 5:52 a.m.
That would make me seem crazy.
Which I clearly am not. Ahem.
So, here I am in what I’m calling my “fall uniform”.
100% inspired by Carly!
I totally dig it.
Skinny Jeans: Swanky Boutique
(if you’re new to the blog, you can read a story about these jeans here)
I already have SEVERAL sleeveless shirts in my closet that are perfect for my new fall uniform! Shirts that have never seen it out of my closet if it is below 80 degrees are going to get to come out and play now. That’s what you call a wardrobe stretcher!
The bad news?
There are lots of sleeveless shirts out there that I’m looking at totally differently after my “aha” moment. I’ve discriminated against these shirts for my whole life during fall and winter months, so I feel like I need to make up for lost time.
I probably need to make amends by buying several new ones.
It just seems like the right thing to do.
And let’s imagine together how flippin’ awesome they would look under a blazer.
In the words of Rachel Zoe, I die.
You will also be a fan of the snickerdoodle Neiman Marcus bars that I talk about in that same post.
Wait. I bet you don’t eat stuff like that….which is why you are able to look so amazing in the leggings above AND THE LEATHER LEGGINGS in your post today.
You go on with your bad self.
You look FIERCE! 🙂
I just thought of something. Maybe you are one of those people that does eat that kind of stuff, that doesn’t work out, and still looks like you look.
If that’s the case, I might have trouble continuing our friendship. 🙂
Now I would like to close with a note.
Thank you for providing me with endless inspirational pics,
Come back tomorrow people for Shopping With Sheaffer!
