My New Favorite Outfit: Pinned it-Copycat Hybrid

Pinned it-Copycat Hybrid

Last week I got to go out with the girls for dinner and to check out a new wine shop, bar, etc. that one of my very talented friends had been the interior designer for. It was a delightful time and I was pretty excited to wear this outfit. Most of my clothes are for work, church, or general casual weekend wear. I don't go "out" much these days, so trying to do dressy-cute seems to be hard for me. I was looking through my pins and saw Annie's pin which by the way is my favorite look of hers, and this pin which I've been drooling over for awhile and I came up with today's look. I really like it with my boyfriend jeans and heels, and am definitely looking forward to wearing again.  Although my outfit's not exactly the same as the pins, I feel it's important to give credit where credit is do. Fran wrote a really great post on this recently that's definitely worth checking out.
