Outfit Inspiration


Today, for the first time ever, I'm finally joining the rest of the blogosphere in linking up with my friend {av} for Friday's Fancies! This week's  theme is: Outfit Inspiration.

When I spotted this outfit on Elle.com, I was instantly inspired.
It's timeless and minimalistic. And lovely.
There's just something about the clean lines in classic black & winter white....
and the pretty pops of aqua add just the right amount of whimsy.

Wishing you all a beautiful weekend! 

p.s. Don't forget: you have until MIDNIGHT on Friday to enter my Shabby Apple giveaway!!

Hey There, thanks for stopping by. :) The tart was so good! And so beautiful to look at and photograph! Thank for the compliment paid to my baby girl on her behalf. :)

What I like most about this outfit is the blazer. I've been on the look out for one, they are so chic and can be worn with almost anything.

Take care,

Shauna

PS. I love your photos, you couldn't be any cuter and either could your little baby boy. The wagon post is priceless!

I've never been a fan of polo necks but this actually looks really nice!

I am in love with that bright shade of aqua, so pretty!

Love this look, especially your stress of the accent color. I am a huge fan of color pops, especially in the winter and I am loving the turquoise pop in your outfit today (the flats are perfect, I am much more balanced/stable walking around in those!) I just happened upon your blog today via long distance loving's Friday's Fancies and it's too cute! Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Friday!!

Oooh, this whole idea is great! Teal is such a vibrant color, it pops really well. I've been getting into black & white lately, it's such a classic combination. Happy Friday :)

Well Swoop. Looks like a cute outfit. You always have a little pop in your step.

LOVE YOU!!!

The shoes are great, I love that turquoise color. I'm not sure I would ever be able to pull off a turtle neck with shorts though :)

I love pops of blue! I think it can make it outfit look completely different [and better] and you can do it in so many ways.

that clutch!

That look is so fun! That blue is my favorite color. I would have never paired any of those items with shorts, but my cousin wore shorts similar to that with greet shoes and accessories this summer and looked so cute. Boring me would pair all of that with jeans/capris - ha!

Meggan of Lila Grace said...

Love this look and that fun pop of color! Blue is one of my favorite colors, and I would wear this in a heart beat! You have such a sweet blog, so glad you linked up with {av} so I could find it! New follower! xoxo
