MiMO Monday

Morning lovelies! Another week closer to Christmas and we still haven't had any major snow in Indy... so rare! I'm not complaining though!

Ready for another week of MiMO with Holly and I??

My MiMO outfit for this week was actually something I donned on a date. It was a mash-up inspired by these two different outfits...

I loved the striped shirt + skinnies + boots from the second look but wanted somethin more bohemian and not quite so rocker (hence where the first picture came in)

Here's how I made it my own:

Whitney bet me that I couldn't get those super-flared jeans into boots, but I did it. Possibly one of my proudest accomplishments. Kidding. sort of.



Oh you wanna see something funny... I was teasing my hair and it got a bit out of hand, a la Everybody Loves Mary.
 Striped tank: Forever21 (Similar)
Cardigan: AE (it was on clearance for like $12!)
Necklace:Charlotte Russe
Watch: MK
Coral bracelet: from Jamaica


I've heard a lot of people say "well I don't have ____ or _____ so I can't recreate that outfit!" I've noticed I find inspiration by the whole 'vibe' of a look, by the color scheme, or by the 'shapes/style' of the clothing that I see someone wearing. Branch out a bit, it's crazy what you can create!


Did you rock a Pinterest-inspired outfit this week? Add your link below, we wanna see your twist! *Make sure the link you add is TO YOUR MIMO post. Not to your blog in general. If you don't play fair, I WILL delete you from the linkup.*
