Spotted! Celebrity Looks from My Own Closet

The way I stay up with current fashion trends is by watching the street style of celebrities, socialites and up & comers. I follow a couple blogs, read magazines (my favorite is People Style Watch), and browse Entertainment websites. No I do NOT go out and buy expensive pieces to mimic the looks I see. But I DO see what I can accomplish from my own closet. That’s the fun thing about fashion. It is about recognizing the concept of the current trend and recreating it in your OWN WAY. And for me, that means on a serious budget (like for FREE when possible). So here I bring you a new series called “Spotted!” This is where I will show you a look that inspired me, and then my own translation of it. So without further adieu, here is a look I spotted:

The highlights of this ensemble for me were: Natural waist mini skirt, grey sweater tucked in, neutral colors, & black shoes. Then I skim my closet to see what I can do without going shopping. Here is what I came up with:

It hits all the things that stood out to me about the original look. And I didn’t spend a dime….well, that’s not totally true, I spent $5 on the skirt at the good will and then reworked it, but that is a story for another day (like my next installment of Thrifty Fashion Finds!)
And if you are as smitten with Olivia’s look as I was, I have put together a couple collections you can actually buy! Just click on the collection and you can see the items and where to get them 🙂

Here is my Affordable option
