Friday's Fancies: Inspired!


While I pin a lot of fashion and style stuff to my Pinterest boards, when {av} picked the inspired topic this week (where you find an outfit online or on Pinterest to attempt to recreate), I didn't really know what I wanted to emulate. Then, I found a fantastic new blog this week called This Time Tomorrow. I'm probably late to this party, but her style is the perfect mix of a lot of other bloggers that I've read for a while. Plus, she wears a lot of dark colors, which is absolutely my favorite way to dress.

I decided I wanted to try to recreate this look that she's wearing, without using the same pieces (except the shoes...I found a new pair of shoes to love).
Here is my recreation. What do you think?
shoes - bag - dress - bracelet - bracelet - necklace - trench
If I was a lady who lunches or often went to weekend brunch, this would be perfect for that. I could also see myself wearing this on an airplane going on vacation. I know I could find a zillion places to wear those shoes, though. I think I'm late to that party too.

Have a happy Friday! Time is flying by. I can't believe this is already the third Friday's Fancies of January! What are you doing this weekend?

She's soooooo cute, and so is your recreation! Do you actually own those pieces/are going to wear them? I love clunky gold chains. What a cute idea!

Also, is the This Time Tomorrow blogger from San Francisco?! I notice she's standing in Alamo Square . . . if so, I definitely need to read her!
