I seem to be doing these Dup-A-Look posts more. I think I’m finally getting the hang of it! Here’s what I’m wearing today…
I wanted to duplicate this look so bad, I actually pinned it twice (I’ve since deleted the duplicate pin, haha)! The look is from the Hush Autumn/Winter 2011 catalog (which you can see here on page 57), but I saw it first on Pinterest, where I immediately knew I’d duplicate it. It was comfy and soft looking. I figured it’d be perfect for a weekend, but it ended up being perfect for today. It’s going to be in the low 50’s today, and I’ve got a cold, so this look was perfect for work. Comfy and cozy, lots of layers, and still nice enough to not feel out of place at the office (which is awesomely casual).
I layered a soft cotton blend drapey top under a natural colored henley I picked up a few years ago at Heritage 1981, and let some of the drapiness (so a word) peek out. Over that, I added an open waffle-knit cardigan my husband got me for the holidays one year at Gap, and a grey Michael Kors scarf (a TJ Maxx score). I added some distressed ‘leather’ leggings from Forever21 and my brown riding boots from Kohl’s, which I tied in with my brown glasse). I’m not wearing any makeup at all today (not even mascara, which is my “must wear” thing). I just didn’t remotely feel like it this morning. I did embrace the messy hair look from the original as well… something I’m starting to do more and more. I kinda like it.
Anyway, I’m super happy with this outfit and the look in general (minus the no makeup part LOL). Not only am I really comfortable in it, but the textures are fantastic and really adds some interest to an otherwise very simple and basic outfit.
Here’s a quick shot of all the awesome textures I’ve got rockin’ today. Oh, and the lavender streaks in my hair (which have faded nicely over the last week), since I opted to part my hair on the “fun” side today.
Shout out to Laurie at The Green Buddha Salon out in Wheaton for doing my lavender streaks! I absolutely love them!
