I get by with a little help from my friends....

Happy Monday, hope everyone had a  great weekend. I got some holiday shopping done. Recently, Tammy from Silverstyle, left me a sweet comment saying she saw this look on Pinterest and it reminded her of me. I appreciate her thinking of me and she was exactly right, this look is so me. It's comfortable, stylish and has a little edge to it. I had all these pieces in my closet, but hadn't put them together like this before.
This made me think of a recent conversation I had with an acquaintance, she said that she was feeling down about her look lately. She wasn't liking the outfits she was putting together. I suggested having someone go through her current closet and put some outfits together with current pieces . Also, maybe they could suggest a few things to buy to spruce up her wardrobe. Sometimes you just need some inspiration, suggestion, or a honest opinion from a friend.

  5. Tammy had it right, and you put it together even better than the inspiration, Carrie. Wonderful look. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

  7. That outfit is stunning. Love that vest, bag, and those amazing shoes.

  8. Hi Carrie, so many beautiful things on this post! I love your vest, scarf and bag! Great look! kisses chris

  9. I love so many things about this look. The vest and those SHOES have to be my favorite pieces. You are rocking it!

  10. It really is a great look. And I agree, your hair is totally rad.

  11. You really do pull this off perfectly, casually, like it was made for you. And your observation about your friend's situation is absolutely relevant. Most of us are doing our little style blogs not to show off, but to get better at it ourselves, and share what we're thinking about in the process. I just love anything process oriented, and isn't personal style all about that! Duplicating looks isn't slavish copying, it's learning by doing. Thanks for your post!

  12. You recreated it so fabulously and I LOVE your hair!

  13. This is freaking fabulous. Love how you styled your hair (short hair sisters unite!) and how this outfit came together. Darling, darling, darling. Must replicate...
