Neutrality

To continue on the theme of my addiction to pinterest, today I was inspired at the last minute by this really pretty image of a light gray blouse and beige-white necklace. After putting together the gray striped top with the almond-colored sweater, I was digging around for a necklace to spice things up and in a magical moment, I found these two necklaces in the bottom of a drawer--they aren't a perfect match, but they approximate the feel of the original image. See? I am a big fat copy cat again.

P.S. Speaking of pinterest, I also really love Dot's inspiration board--complete with a bunch of amazing looks from J. Crew's new fall collection--swoon.

Pinterest has changed my world, and the way I blog (or at least how I keep track of ideas!).

Kayla said...

Adore the cardi. Pinterest is so addictive I really have to talk myself out of pinning certain things!

i think you did a great job interpreting the outfit. i also love the slim black pants and pumps. and your pinterest boards are so great! i love copying them.

Maddy said...

You are such an inspiration to us other grad students.. you're so stylish! I love this outfit, it's classy, especially with the black pants and the cream sweater, but also fun with the shoes and the necklace. I never have enough energy in the morning to put into my clothes, but after reading your blog I might just find some, haha.

I have those pumps and I wore them once and they killed my feet! They're just so cute though I'll probably keep them/still wear them lol

I love the contrast of the neutrals against the super dark black of your pants.

lilmissmarch said...

love your new layout! i also did neutrals today! great outfit! : )

Heather said...

You are one pretty lady! Such a natural beauty!

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

thank you, friends!
rachie, the radiance is due to benefit's high beam makeup--it's amazing and makes you look super-glowy. i swear i've been asked if i'm pregnant weekly since i started using it. I'M NOT. but it gives a great glow :)

U U N A said...

Ha ha so lucky! I like your necklaces better though. Well what I can see I like your whole outfit better. So it's not really copying. More like tweaking... (:

Karen said...

Love it, the whole outfit is gorgeous! And the matching with your new design..

kimmie said...

Oh my gosh, SO PRETTY, Tania! I'm going to have to steal that look. :)

PS. The new font is much better :)

B said...

This is so great! Perhaps my favorite yet. Those necklaces are great. Good drawer find.

eleanor said...

I just lovvvvvee that second picture of you! You're so gorgeous, Tania.

This outfit is wonderful - I love how you took the inspiration but still made it your own.

melissa said...

The Blissful Academic said...

I am really liking the new layout!

Allison said...

you pull off those cropped black pants so well! I'm pretty sure if I tried cropped pants they would make my legs look about half as long, but somehow they elongate yours! such a perfect outfit to welcome spring :)

Inquiring minds want to know how you bike anywhere in all your awesome shoes?

jana said...

anonymous--i do bike in these shoes, mostly by putting the ball of my foot on the pedal (i also have a vintage 3-speed, so it's a bit easier to stay balanced in tricky shoes). and i packed flats in my bag yesterday which i ended up wearing on the bike ride home after i had to run around doing a bunch of errands.

Okay, this... I LOVE. Best outfit of all the fashion bloggers I read this week.
