Head to Toe: Mix and Match

My inspiration for this outfit came from J. Crew.  I love the simplicity of the J. Crew outfit but I also wanted to pump up my take.  Instead of simply doing a simple white shirt, green blazer and jeans, I added a striped shirt and leopard print to the mix.

{Lipstick: NARS, Blazer: Similar, Shirt: Similar, Necklace: Similar, Jeans: Gap, Flats: Similar}

I've had this blazer for a really long time but it only makes an appearance on St. Patty's day.  Now that color is so in, especially this green, so is this blazer and I can wear it more than just once a year. I'm thinking it will be a summer staple paired with some boyfriend jean shorts.

The leopard flats were a last minute add-on.  I just get tired of always wearing my nude flats, but they go with every thing so they are always the easy choice!


I really loved this outfit.  It's one of those times where an outfit I thought up turned out better than I could have hoped.



I also adore this lipstick.  Everyone always compliments it.  Sometimes I find myself grabbing the reds more often than I'd like.  But this green was just asking to be paired with a pretty pink lip!

  1. Ok. So I have a green jacket kinda like this that I haven't worn in a long time. This was super helpful! I'm pulling it out and wearing it with my stripey shirt. Thanks!

    1. You should! I am surprised by all the things that get lost in my closet and then I rediscover them. I kind of love and hate that feeling!
