Carelia Inspired

I’ve felt relatively uninspired by style blogs, lately. The popular bloggers seem to wear nothing but J Crew, Loft, and Mod Cloth. (And take their styling directly from these companies.) While the outfits are lovely, they’ve become too much the same.

Angie, of You Look Fab, recently profiled blogger Carelia Moran of My Small Wardrobe and I instantly had a new favorite. I love her playful style and absolute fearlessness.

I also find her body type much more relatable than the model look-alikes who populate the better-known blogs. Carelia is beautiful, but not impossibly leggy or rail thin

I haven’t found anyone as inspiring (and copy-worthy) as Carelia in a long while. Today, I’ve taken my best shot at recreating an outfit she wore earlier this month. She described her look as nautical, but my take is more French mod.

Cape, Mossimo (thrifted). Shirt, Gap (swap). Trousers, Express. Shoes, Lauren Ralph Lauren. Hat, Nine West. Sunglasses and scarf, Target. Bag, Nicole Lee.

My inspiration:

Can I comment? I hope I can ;-). I just want to say thanks so much for finding my blog and my looks inspiring. You know, I am going though a bad flu right now and this post came just in time. Your wonderful outfit cheer me up.
