how we wore it // darker fall tones

happy wednesday, everyone!
today i am collaborating with a few incredible (and very talented!) 
bloggers as we style darker tones for fall.
^^^ our inspiration photo via stylelovely -
can i have her top? and shoes? and bag, please?! ^^^

when i first saw this photo, i thought, 'oh i don't have a gingham top like that.
and i desperately want distressed black jeans. and maybe
i can buy a new pair of shoes, too?'
but that sort of defeats the entire purpose of this collaboration; 
together, we are digging through our closets to find pieces 
that resemble this look. 

when i took a moment to consider what i have in my 
closet, items that are comparable to this photo, i realized i didn't need to go 
shopping at all (darn!!). 
blouse: nordstrom, bag: urban outfitters (old), booties: dsw,
bangles: nordstrom rack, jeans: american eagle (exact here)

what stood out to me in the inspiration photo, 
was the distressed denim, blouse-like top, sunnies, and black bag.
after a bit of playing around with my blouse, 
i am pleased with how similar my photos look - yet they
are still representative of my personal style.
i prefer flats or boots to heels, and i opted for a brighter, 
more vibrant lip color. 

i had a great time creating this look, so thank you, 
brooke for hosting. brooke's blog, silver lining,
is pretty adorable (as is her daughter), so be sure to check it out!
