Copycat: Laid-back Layers

While many spring lookbooks are celebrating bare legs, airy fabrics and girly silhouettes, I'm appreciating laid-back layers and earthy color palettes.  Probably because it's still cold and snowy here.  It's also possible that I'm growing a bit tired of 'fancy' office clothes.  I'm trying to remedy that by getting out some summer items early.  It's how I add 'newness' to my wardrobe without buying a bunch of new stuff.

This outfit (below) looked better with my brown leather jacket layered over it.  And I wore chunky bangles, but they didn't make it into the picture either (a little premature on the picture-taking).

General rule for me:  no sandals when there is still snow on the ground.  Doesn't look right.  But that's just my opinion.  Hence the boots.

Though I was trying somewhat to copy this look from Esprit, I wasn't necessarily trying to copy her pose.  Hands in pockets.  That's just how I role.

More copycatting to come...

Green Scarf:  Urban Outfitters, Vegas
Mickey Scarf:  California Adventure
T-Shirt:  RollerGirls
Vest:  Vintage, thrifted
Jeans:  Clothes-swapped
Boots:  DSW

Very cute
I think I like yours better, not so dark
Love the jeans you are wearing and I don't know how you could tromp through snow in sandals LOL

Great job recreating this. The vest is perfect on you and I totally agree with the sandals in snow. It's only raining here, but I'm not in sandals either. Too cold!

I love your outfit - you did such a awesome job recreating it! Great jeans too. Now I have ideas of how to wear my own vest, though mine is denim.

You pull this off brilliantly. I actually like your version better than the inspiration. I like the shirt with the banded sleeves with the vest. It just gives it a little more something...

This fit is soooo me! I'm stealing it from you. The picture is saved to a file on my PC. You will get credit once I finally decide to wear it. Thanks chica.
