inspiration monday- army stripes

Dress- Club Monaco (thrifted); Blazer- Urban Behaviour (gifted from ML); Shoes- Charlotte Russe; Belt, Purse & Ring- Thrifted; Shoes- Charlotte Russe; Sunglasses- Aldo; Nail Polish- Tulip by Revlon
 


Fringe bag, stripes, structured jacket, cool shoes & shades- what more could a gal ask for? This week's inspiration over at two birds is the beautiful actress Olivia Wilde who looks effortlessly chic in her loose dress and messy hair.  I decided to wear a shorter dress (previously worn like this) with an army green jacket to complement the brown accessories.  I really like how this outfit turned out, and with stockings and boots this might just be my go-to look for those crisp autumn days!
 
I picked this little gem up at my local Salvation Army thift store for only $3.99 and I love the movement of the cowgirl inspired fringe.


Head on over to two birds inspiration monday to check out how other fashion bloggers interpreted the look!

  6. I think fierce accessories that really elevate an outfit. The bag, sunglasses and booties complement this outfit well. I want your booties!!
    (that sounds awfully close to booty lol)

    I love how unexpected blogging can be. I never would have guessed the yellow pants/black blazer combo would be your fave outfit on me, but it's so fun to see people's reactions!!

  14. Every weekend I say, "I should really do Inspiration Monday this week." And then I forget or can't find anything even remotely close to the inspiration outfit. Oh well. I've been enjoying your Inspiration Monday posts. Your striped dress is so cute, and I'd steal your blazer right off your back if you were here. :)
