|This is Misty from Across and Down a Little Bit|
I've been talking about Misty this week because of her Count up to Christmas Linky Party, but that picture is what made me stay on her site after my first visit. First of all, its hella fun that she posed mid "hands to the sky" dance. Secondly, I own that exact same blazer and I have never ever considered wearing it with a neutral top and rolled sleeves. Ever. But I thought it was a great look and determined to copy it ASAP.
So, I'm not nearly as tiny as Misty, and my jacket fits so much bigger than hers does! Plus I don't have booties so I had to sub in other neutral shoes. All together, I liked the top half but felt the bottom was a fail. So I moved onward.
As I continued reading my blog list that day I came across another picture of the SAME BLAZER. Darn it, she paired it with a neutral top too AND rolled up the sleeves! I'm always a day late and a dollar short.

Hers is a great look too, so I dug out my pieces and tried again...
OOOOHHHH k. I am not a size 2, I don't own any funky blue pumps and again, my jacket looks too big and not big enough all at the same time. Still like the top half though. What to do, what to do.
Divide and conquer my friends. I kept the top, ditched both bottoms in favor more flattering boot cut ones and while this isn't the best picture ever, this next one is worse.
Here's what I learned. I really like the neutral combo and rolled sleeves. I shouldn't keep trying to wear skinny jeans. I haven't mastered how to stand yet. I really need a photographer, a hair and makeup crew, and a trip (or 50) to the gym.
Best copycat post ever, right??? Go compare at Trusty Chucks/Texas Lovebirds (sidebar link).
