Today's outfit re-creation was inspired by a look worn by Crystalin Marie a couple of months ago. I've only been reading her blog for a few months, but her style totally resonates with me. It's classic, simple, and a little bit masculine. You'll find her in either stripes, denim, or a combination of both--and always put together! This look is one I've been wanting to try myself, but with the summer heat, wearing layers (especially a long-sleeved layer) was the last thing I wanted to do. We had quite the dip in temperatures recently, so I took that as an opportunity to put together this look! I'm a huge fan of the light monochrome (or any monochrome, really, haha). Now if only I had a pair of white jeans to wear--after Labor Day, of course. ;)

I was super stoked to recreate this outfit since I had most of the pieces already (except for a cognac bag, which she also features in the post, and a pair of espadrilles). I was trying to decide between wearing my gold sparkly Sperry Top-Siders (for the slip-on, relaxed vibe) or my new leopard d'Orsay flats (for the print), and with help from Chris, I decided to go with the leopard flats. Even with my flats instead of the Sperrys, this outfit still feels relaxed and perfect for a day of running errands! How do you think I did?
Chris and I goofed off a bit during this outfit shoot. He kind of gets into the photos a bit sometimes (I think, haha), so if he likes something he'll tell me to do it again or hold it or whatever. I flipped my hair because it kept getting in my face, and he told me to do it again so he could snap a bunch more. I figured I'd include one of the shots for fun. :D
