finding inspiration everywhere

There are things all around that inspire me and the things I choose to wear. One of the greatest sources lately has been the J. Crew catalog. Soooooooooo goooooooooooood. Here is the photo that I loved:

The first thing to do is figure out exactly what I love about it. Easy- the colors. They play so beautifully together but I would never have put them together when left to my own devices. Also, I think it's interesting that they buttoned the red shirt all the way up. (And when I tried out my own interpretation of this look I discovered that it actually makes a HUGE difference in the success of the bottom shirt.) Then I just need to find out what I had in my closet that could give me a similar look.

If you judge my pale legs (remind me to thank you later, light peach shorts, for exaggerating this)  I will never show you another picture as long as we both shall live, so help me God. Kapeesh?

Glad we had this little talk.

 "Hey babe, would you take pictures of my outfit really quick? What's that?"

Oh brother.


  1. I think the outfit is SUPER CUTE!!! :)

  2. Can you seriously come dress me eery morning? I heart you!

    1. Alyssa, I heart YOU!!!! And yes. Absolutely! lol

  3. Yesterday evening when I was deciding what to wear, I looked in my closet and saw this navy silk Banana Republic tank I have and decided to wear that. Instead of the traditional tan or white cardigan, I thought "WWBSD" - What Would Becker STyle Do - and am sporting my tangerine cardigan. Tangerine and navy - not a color combo I think I've ever worn. Thanks for the inspiration!
