Christmas Gift Guide

Feeling inspired: outfit edition

I'm going to give my creative voice more ownership in the next couple Wednesday style posts and show you what has inspired me, in the fashion realm.   Whenever I'm browsing the web, I keep my eyes out for things that I'd like to recreate and make my own.

1)  Jillian Harris.  I love everything she wears (and everything about her) (especially her affinity for beer and her potty mouth), but this outfit really stuck out.  I tried it with my light distressed boyfriend jeans (Gap) and then decided in the end that they are too baggy and made my already short and thick  muscular legs look shorter and muscularer.  So I went with my dark Jessica Simpson skinny jeans.  I was also more comfortable and that's important.  I paired it with my light pink Gap jacket that Dan got me 8 years ago.

2) My other woman crush, Anna Kendrick.   I saw Pitch Perfect 2 last weekend and I loved it as much as I loved the first.  Anna Kendrick is my favourite.  So of course I wanted to remake this outfit when I saw it.  I didn't end up wearing this out as I decided that my grey jeggings weren't right for my body: they keep sliding down my hips and then I get baggy butt.  I'll have to keep my eyes out for something better as I do really like how grey goes with everything, especially stripes and polka dots.

And while we're at it...let's talk what I've been window shopping this week....joggers/soft pants/harem pants
Come back next week when I style something boho and something like my bestie.
