Pinterest Parallel [Vol. 1]

Casual Friday · Office Appropriate Outfits - Winter · Viagra users forum

Another series, you ask? Why, yes, yes it is. And what’s this one? Well, I mentioned that I was thinking about doing posts where I recreate looks from my Pinterest boards but not go shopping.

Well, I have bought a few things already in January but I’m trying my best to leave my closet alone from now on. Except I know my dad wants to take me shopping for my birthday when I visit him this weekend!

Anyway, this particular outfit is a copy of a recent one from The Closet Crush and all of the items here were purchased before 2015!

The shirt is one of the older things in my closet as I think it’s been there since before I moved to Chicago. The boots were one of my first purchases after we moved here (so…2008?). The jacket I bought on eBay early last year and the necklace was added earlier in 2014 as well. The jeans are the newest items and those joined my closet this past fall.
