Today’s Two Birds Inspiration Monday is Michele Trachtenberg and Olivia Munn, both wearing similar comfy-but-chic outfits. I decided to give it a shot with a new sweater that I got at one of my favorite local thrift shops, Shelter, Inc. It’s a BKE sweater from Buckle that I’m pretty sure is actually a men’s sweater (based on style and fit), but it’s perfectly oversized on me, so I snagged it. I wore it with black leggings from GAP and black slouchy wedge boots I picked up at Discovery last spring. I threw my brown fur vest over it and it worked perfect.
Here’s the original inspiration photo from Two Birds.
And here’s the look I put together, using those two ladies as inspiration.
I ended up taking the vest off at work, because it just wasn’t needed in the office today. I’m pretty happy with the outfit overall though. And am totally in love with the sweater. What a great thrift store find… I didn’t really have a good oversized cable sweater, and this one’s pretty different from my other 2 oversized sweaters (both of which are cream). I really like the collar detail on it.
Don’t forget to check out the Two Birds blog for their take on this look.
