Basically they give out a picture of an outfit the week before and then encourage bloggers to give their own take on the outfit. So, this week is this picture of Kelly Ripa here:
She is entirely too goregous for her own good isn't she? Anyway, at first I thought there was no way I would be able to come up with something for this outfit, but then inspiration struck - heh, guess that is the point of this exercise right? Here is what I came up with:
It was warm on Saturday, so it seemed like a good time to try this out. I had the perfect jeans and then I remembered this tank top I got from my cousin's bag of goodies awhile back. When I bought the blazer I have on from Forever 21, they had it paired with a bright colored tank like this.
The hardest part of recreating this look was in the scarf - I don't have a ton of scarves and the ones I have I usually use as head scarves. I'm trying to get more into the scarf trend. I have a hard time with tight things around my neck, but I think the right scarves tied loosely enough should work. Anyway, I think this one did all right for me!
Topped it all off with my famed "suicide" shoes because while it was warm, I wasn't going to drag out sandals for one day. I thought these looked nice enough though and similar to the sandals Kelly Ripa is wearing in her picture.
The Pants Monkey thought this made a pretty nice outfit actually, so I wore it out on our "date night" on Saturday. How do you think I did? For more Kelly Ripa inspired outfits or to add your own, visit the fabulous ladies at Two Birds.
