Pinterest Told Me To Link Up

Today I'm linking up with Pinterest Told Me To, a site that I just recently came across & absolutely fell in love with. As a fellow Pinterst & shopping addict, she speaks to my heart.

Here is the inspiration for yesterday's outfit...

I really wanted to replicate the green on bottom with neutral stripes on top. Luckily, I had all of the pieces my closet! It didn't seem like enough though when I put it on, so I added a gold statement necklace to jazz it up.

And here is what it looked like on me...

my sincere apologies for the sucky lighting... my house is horrible for taking pictures in

The Breakdown:
  • My green cords are from Gap. I love the color, but they stretch out very quickly. I don't wear them as often as I'd like, simply because I hate pulling them up every five minutes at school.
  • My sweater is from Banana Republic, I got it for Christmas last year. I picked it because I just love the preppy elbow patches!
  • My flats are from J.Crew & I've posted about them before - they're over 5 years old & are still amazing! Such a good investment piece.
  • The gold necklace I'm wearing is from Lia Sophia. My old boss used to sell Lia Sophia & whenever she'd have extra discounts she'd throw them my way. I'd completely forgotten about this piece, so when I found it last weekend I was pumped! (Sidenote - I really need to organize my jewelry.)
  • You can't see them well, but my earrings are by Marc Jacobs.
I got a ton of compliments on my prepster style at work. Surprisingly, everyone seemed to like my hair too, which made me laugh because I thought I looked like a total slob kabob! Thank God messy buns are in!

What are you up to this weekend?
I have a long run to fit in, and my in-laws are coming up to take us out to lunch!


  1. I just looooove the green cords! Love them! Thank you so much for linking up! You look fabulous!

  2. Very cute. I like the elbow patch on the sweater and I adore colored pants. This outfit totally works for you. My favorite part is how the necklace dresses it up so much. Have a great weekend.

    1. I swear, the necklace was like magic with this outfit. It definitely needed the extra pizazz!
