*Copycat! is a feature where I try to recreate outfits I find on Pinterest (or various other sources of inspiration), utilizing at least one item from Target.

This is my second round of Copycat!, and I am loving actually using my millions of pins! This inspiration came from Ann Taylor Loft, whose clothes I love and enjoy wearing. This skirt was a dream find when I got it. In my size. 50% off? I’ll take two (I actually did…watch out for the navy one to make an appearance someday!).

I think it worked well. I was worried about wearing a white tee, so I switched it to gray. It seemed a little flight attendent style, so I tied the scarf in a knot at the bottom and added a brooch for some sparkle. I do love her boots more than mine. I’ve not been impressed with my tall boots lately and might have to look into some nicer upgrades!

What do you think of my second Copycat!? Did I nail it or what?!

I love Pinterest and have an unhealthy addiction to it. I find myself pinning and viewing pins for hours. Hours, guys. I find myself pinning a bunch of outfits combinations that I love, but I have a board of 289 pins currently! I need to start making this work for me. So, yet, another new feature for the blog: Copycat! I will try to recreate these stunning outfits using my closet, and each one will, per usual, utilize at least one item from Target. I’ll try to have one of these per week.

So check out my first attempt above for work today (jeans all week thanks to the holiday!). I changed the colors from black and white to blue and white to work with the items that I actually have. I think it turned out pretty well, though I am coveting her boots still!

Do you have a fashion Pinterest board, and if so, have you ever tried to replicate the outfits?

p.s. I really have to wear different shoes tomorrow. This is like 4 days in a row!

Blue Da-Ba-De

Blue is my favorite color. And it use to overwhelm my closet so much that I would put myself on blue-color bans, where I would force myself to branch out to other colors. I find myself embracing it a lot these days as well. It will be the main color at my upcoming wedding. It is the color of my favorite pro sports team (cough Indianapolis Colts cough). And mushy mush, it is the color of Fiance’s eyes!

Anyways, this outfit combines a lot of my favorite blue items (including a fairly new-from-clearance blue top). Hope you enjoy! Now I’m off to go snuggle up on the couch with a cup of coffee and my laptop, which is a perfect activity for this dreary Indiana day.

Striped Giraffe

I’m back to blogging and hopefully will be back for a long time!

This outfit is quintessential Katie – stripes, cutesy animal graphics (specifically giraffes, which are my favorite animal), jeans, and ankle boots. My best friend, B, told me to make sure that I put this outfit on the blog (as I wore it on a trip to Louisville this past weekend)…so here it is!

These Target Denizen jeans are still going strong as a serious staple in my closet, and they never seem to fade (knock on wood). I am excited to wear them tomorrow to work, as we are being rewarded with a random Hump Day Jeans Day. No complaining here though!

Week of Denim

At work this week (and next week), we get to wear jeans to work (minus Tuesday, where we have to be in business casual) because we met our office goals in September. It is such a nice treat to be able to roll out of bed and jump into some jeans instead of worrying about what pair of dress pants to wear.

Since it is Monday, I thought I would take my black Denizen jeans out for a work test drive. These jeans are super soft and almost jegging-like. I love the pairing with the “fancy” (leopard shoes and pearls) with the casual (the denim/chambray shirt) to complete a pulled together, but still casual work look. I’m excited to be sharing more casual looks on the blog today, so get ready for some more denim looks after Tuesday this week!

What is your work dress code like? Let me know if the comments!
