Ottoman- Vampire Weekend
A lovely friend of mine, in real life and in fashion blog world, posted an outfit a little while ago on her blog Miss Jones and Me (such an addictive blog!) where she said that I was the influence. This made me feel super proud because damn. the girl can seriously dress to kill and I couldn't quite believe she used me as inspiration! 

Anyways, that got me to thinking about where I get my inspiration from and made me think a bit more about who I was channeling in an outfit. So last night, bored out of my mind (hey, it was a Monday!) I decided to get dressed and take photos. After pulling different things from the wardrobe I decided that I wanted to make an outfit inspired by Brooke! She always rocks the cutest socks with her heels and has a tendency to do sexy without showing too much skin (yes. I realize I'm showing a hell of a lot of leg here! And yes, Brooke is classier than that! BUT my a/c is broken and the sweat was starting to collect on my brows so the legs came out!) 

Shirt: Zara
Self Made Cut-Offs and Bow Peep Toes: Joe
Socks and Cuff: Aldo
Peacock Earrings: Gift

I completely loved playing dress up and found out that socks with shoes are definitely wearable, I can't wait to wear them out of the house now! I hope Brooke is ok with me stealing inspiration from her too, it was fun to break out of my own styling mindset and try on a new character!


  1. Beautiful outfit:)))
