Pinspired: Tweed Blazer & Striped Shirt

Let me start off by saying how cute is my little nephew!  It would sure brighten my day getting flowers from that cute little guy.  Can’t wait to start that May Day tradition when I have kids one day!  If you missed Marissa’s post yesterday be sure to check it out here.

I’m linking up today with Mix & Match MamaPinterest Told Me To and The Larson Lingo for Get Pin-spired!

pinspired2I had this 3/4 length black and white striped top that I bought at Old Navy several years ago, but I got a big stain on it :( .  I suppose most people would have gotten rid of it, but I was determined to wear it again.  If I could just find the right jacket that would still show off the cute stripes and 3/4 length sleeves, but cover the stain on the side.  Then I stumbled upon this outfit on Pinterest last fall.  Since then I kept my eye out for a tweed blazer.  Marissa had found one at H&M in December and was asking for it for Christmas.  My mom asked me to help her order it online to get my sister as a gift.  It was 40% off plus free shipping.  I ordered one for myself for my mom to give me for Christmas too!    The blazer has these really cute faux suede elbow patches and patterned lining that peaks through when you roll up the sleeves.  A few weeks ago I finally pulled the look together and wore it out to dinner for a fun date night while on vacation.

 Now I know mine doesn’t compare to the original above, but here is my take!  I think I came pretty close, what do you think?!

Blazer and Stipes

Black and white striped top: Old Navy (a few years back) || Similar Here and Here

Brown Tweed Blazer: H&M December 2013 || Similar Blazer  (It’s the wrong season to look for blazers, but check H&M in the fall.  They have some really cute ones at great prices!  I linked to a cute dark blue striped blazer that is perfect for a spring or summer night.  You could pair it with a bright pink or coral striped shirt!)

Vigoss Skinny Jeans: Nordstrom Rack || Similar Jeans (I have 4 pairs of Vigoss Jeans;  they are my favorite and I bought all of them at Nordstrom Rack for around $34.00!  I bought the ones in the pic over 3 years ago and haven’t been able to find that style again, but Nordstrom has some of the styles on sale for about $34.00.  Buy yours today, you won’t regret it!  Pinterest Told Me To will tell you too!  When I stumbled on her blog and read that Vigoss are her favorite jeans too, I knew I could trust her judgement!)

Riding Boots: American Eagle 2013 || Similar Here and Here  (Love my American Eagle boots, I wear them all the time!)

Necklace: Target (wrapped it a few times for desired length)

Bracelet: Tiffany’s

I hope you were inspired to start wearing all those cute outfits you’ve been pinning!  You can find me on Pinterest here and check out my Fashion Ideas board.

Have a great weekend friends!
