Pinspired & A Sick Giveaway Alert

Jacket: TJMaxx | Tee: Gap | Skirt: Worthington | Heels: Sam Edelman Portney | Belt: Target | Necklace: eBay | Cuffs: F21

Recreated this pin for a quick work look. I don't love how this jacket comes across in pictures, but suffice it to say I don't look 11 feet wide in person and the color is spot on. I didn't have anything similar to her shoes in my closet, so I improvised.

"When in doubt, go with leopard."
-Abe Lincoln

This sale is still going on - I may or may not have tripled my lipstick collection. BUT thanks to the color guarantee you can return anything you don't love, unlike the drugstore dance where you wipe it on your arm and try to decide if you'll like it on your face and then get home and hate it. See? You're losing money if you don't.

  3. Ha ha!!! You definitely don't look 11 feet wide, but I understand because you sound just like me when I look at my pics. Great look, and I actually like it better with the leopard pumps.

    Have a lovely day, Sam!!
