Pinned & Tried

This is the fashion edition of pinned and tried.  It almost shouldn’t be posted, because it was too easy.  When I put this together to go to a movie the other night, my husband commented and said I looked nice.  Nothing wrong with the compliment, but an outfit that was this easy got a compliment and that surprised me.

Here is the pin-spiration:

Here is my version:

pinned and tried

Long sleeved white James Perse top, black Mavi jeggings, brown boots bought at DSW ages ago and necklace made by a local artist.

The main reason this outfit works is because of the brown boots.  I tend to always read for black boots with black pants, but seeing this pin-spiring outfit made me try the brown boots and I’m glad I did.  I don’t own a brown purse, but I might put it on my shopping list as I am getting tired of always using a black one.

Overall, this is another successful pinned and tried fashion edition.
