It’s a Hard Habit to Quit

September 2, 2011

I’ve spent the majority of the morning hooked to my television watching The Rachel Zoe Project. Say what you will about her (though I happen to think she’s funny as hell in the show), the girl can spot some great fashion (obvs). I could only watch two episodes before it made me feel guilty for laying on the couch in the ugliest combination of pajama clothes ever, so I decided to get in my closet and wear one of my new sweaters.

I thought with the fall season that my ridiculous obsession with coral would go away, but guys, it’s a hard habit to quit.

I got this sweater from Old Navy’s straight size section, and it’s actually too big (it billows in the back), so I’d suggest sizing down if your okay with it being a cropped sweater, which is what it’s supposed to be. I fell for the colors and stripes (are we seeing a pattern here in my clothing choices lately…), but didn’t know what kind of bottoms to wear it with. I tried it with skinny jeans, and it was just kind of blah, but when I put on these wide leg jeans the look just came together.

I took my blue stone necklace from Forever21 that I’ve shown on here somewhere and extended the chain to make it a longer necklace. I really wanted something with a big pendant, and this was the closest I had in my closet. (What I really wished I had was this amazing House of Harlow necklace that Kimberly over at Fab Finds Under $50 was sporting in her post today.)

I also threw in my trusty clutch/wallet that travels EVERYWHERE with me. The key to being able to switch purses so easily? This lil’ guy. I keep everything I absolutely need in there, and just switch that between bags.

Shop: Sweater (Old Navy), Jeans (Evans Clothing), Similar Necklace (Forever21),

Wedges-no longer available- (Torrid), Wallet-no longer available- (Urban Outfitters)

What do you think of the look? Are you inspired by any television shows or television personalities?

Personally, Rachel Zoe’s show made me feel the need to go jewelry shopping ASAP.

P.S. I forgot to mention that the other week I did a guest post on Evans’ Fashion Fix blog! You can check it out here.

    I love the stripes! I have a general loose on top or bottom, not both, but you’re pulling it off here! Looking good, hot mama!

      Thanks! I usually have the same rule. I wish the sweater was tighter to be honest, but I still like it 🙂
