Close Enough

Shirt: Urban Outfitters, $10 // Sweater: LOFT, swapped // Trousers: GAP, purchased with credit // Shoes: Thrifted, $2 // Ring: Courtesy of InPink // Necklace: Forever 21, $10

Inspired by an outfit from the most recent J.Crew catalog, I was determined to wear a button-up, sweater and necklace in the same color. Unfortunately, my only option was an obnoxious combination of pinks. While I may very well sport that ensemble later, it was a bit too much for me at such an early hour. I opted for a more subtle pairing of whites and beiges. I'll have to work up to the Pepto-Bismol explosion!

I get so much inspiration from 1 J. Crew catalog. I think I know the picture - red on red w/red & jeans?

This is such a great outfit. And I love the ring. I'm always intrigued by big rings like that but I'm intimidated by the thought of them being uncomfortable. Is it easy to type/do normal things with them?

I love to look to J.Crew for inspiration.

The colors look amazing, and those trousers with the shoes are superb... I love getting inspiration from catalogs!

I attempted that look yesterday too:) Not as streamlined as the original from JCrew...unfortunately.

I love interpretation you brought to the look!

@Piper Alexander - That's the one!

@Francine - Big rings don't bother me at all as long as they don't weigh much. This one is super light and has a stretchy band, so I hardly notice it!

This is such a wonderful combination!! I love the button up under the sweater and your necklace is the perfect touch.
