Picking an inspiration picture for a group OTI is kind of hard. When I showed Erica my initial pick I could see her shaking her head through gchat. Not accessible. People would balk. So I sent her this one and she said, "Perfect!" And she's right, of course. This is the kind of classic outfit that pretty much anyone can interpret with stuff they already own.
I really wanted to wear a cozy sweater but, strangely, I own zero cable knit. So this is what I came up with:
|Button up free from swap (similar), thrifted and altered red top, khakis from American Eagle altered (similar), Target heels (similar), bangle from a trip to the Bahamas|
Bright + neutral + layers. I actually started out with something a lot closer to the original but I hated it and declared a last minute re-do yesterday. I was much happier.
Link up your OTI below! Or you can also add it to the Flickr group!
