A Different Kind of Pinspiration

This outfit was inspired not by Pinterest, but by the pins on this outfit of the, well, fabulous, April, over at Knocked Up Fabulous:



Instead of a bright blue skirt (I think I packed mine for winter) I paired my cream sweater (thrifted, Goodwill) with my mocha-colored skirt (thrifted, Goodwill).  I also added black tights (Spanx via Nordstrom), belt (thrifted, Goodwill) and boots (thrifted, Goodwill) and an infinity scarf (Steve Madden via Macys).

And, of course, I added a vintage brooch cluster (all via Lil' Gypsy Vintage):


I like how the scarf ties in the black boots and tights and love the little pop of red from the floral brooch.  This is definitely something I'd wear again; perhaps next time with my blue skirt if I can remember where I put it.

Happy Wednesday, All!  And Happy New Year!

  2. Lovely, Gracey! My local vintage shop as a glass cabinet full of brooches, I am like a magpie, tapping at the glass. Haven't seen any as pretty as yours though, the red one is beautiful.

  3. What a cute casual chic outfit and as usual you have paired it with your great smile! So I am not the only one that can't find clothes, I recently found my white cardigan but I am still missing some very loved jewelry!

  4. Happy new year. I love the little cluster of brooches, but never think my brooches go well together. I must try it this year. x

  7. Great inspiration! And great skirt. I had to talk myself into a skirt today. I'm glad I did though because I am missing my skirts and dresses. I say go dig through your summer gear and find that blue skirt!

  16. The accessories really make this outfit. I think if I were to wear broaches and a scarf I'd look like an old lady, but you totally pull it off!

  17. Ooooooh, sparkly, shiny group of loveliness. I'm a total brooch hound. I also covet your scarf, boots, and full, swirly-looking skirt.

  19. Hey...this looks great! I was hoping that you'd be doing the can-can (You know...with pins on your girls, but this works well, too! ; )
    Really digging it with the scarf! And thanks for the shout-out!

    Happy New Year!

  22. Oh my I LOVE brooches! I don't wear them as often as I should. You put together the perfect little bunch of them, they are lovely :) This skirt is so pretty! It looks like such a great material and I really like the longer hemline on you. So pretty, lady :)

  23. The brooches are soooo pretty, especially the pearl one! I need to try pinning a few together myself, but I'm not sure they'd look this good.

  25. Gorgeous Gracey! Love the simplicity of the outfit with a little added vintage sparkle from the brooches. They really do look lovely in a little cluster like that. Must remember to copy... Err, pay homage, darling! xxxx

  26. I love your outfits! I have no idea how you find such great stuff at the Goodwill. I feel so overwhelmed every time I walk into that store, that I generally head straight for the purses, those I can handle.

  27. Ooh, I love this outfit. That red flower brooch is TDF. You look so polished and chic and your smile is so beautiful!

  28. This is adorable! And so perfect for the cold weather we've been having here in Oregon. I love that you tucked the front of the sweater into the skirt a little. The belt peeking out is an adorable detail!
