Happy Thursday friends! Sometimes I'm at a loss for creating an outfit - especially when I'm trying to remix older items in my closet that have been worn multiple times, and especially when it comes to creating a chic casual outfit. I look to fave bloggers for inspiration and this time a recent post by Wendy was the perfect recipe! I wouldn't usually think to put all these items together but I really enjoyed the result. Where do you look for inspiration? Thanks for visting!

This is a great look Mary Ann! I love the oversize clutch. You have done a wonderful job remixing.

Jenny Lauren said...

You look so casual chic! Really love the combination of stripes and leopard! I too find myself looking to blogs for inspiration. It used to be magazines, but I find I'm not reading them as much anymore because I find so much more incredible inspiration for other bloggers!

Loving the stripes and leopard print together...that blend of cream, brown, gold, and white tones is just so classic and rich. You look very sophisticated and it's got a great Parisian vibe to me!
