Inspired by my own post, I had to pull out my flared denim…

Sometimes a girl has to keep it simple, but simple doesn’t mean boring.. it can be classic. Feeling very effortless-chic I went with the flare jeans, a sailor shirt and platform sandals.. it doesn’t get more classic than that.

Accessory? My Revlon Siren Lipstick!

This week’s inspirations and elations:

Wide leg jean obsession! A great alternative to the skinny jean.. and a new way to add a little fancy to your casual Friday.

White on white on white! How fabulous.. so clean.. so bright and pure.

The opposite of my colorblocking obsession is layering up loads of white.. just have to remember the Tide Stain Stick!

My recent Savers loot came back from the cleaners today! It’s like Christmas morning.. a whole new load of inspiration arrives at my doorstep and I begin creating.

This morning, the Asian two-piece set (look back at my picks!), struck my fancy. I decided to separate the pieces and work with the printed pants, which resulted in something a little preppy and a little tribal.

*Addition* A lot of questions have popped up about the necklace, it is actually two vintage necklaces that I safety pinned together.. I’ll try to do a DIY for you later.
