sweater Express, old, similar // belt F21, old, similar // denim Hudson // flats Steve Madden 

I bought this sweater on major clearance in Seattle last winter, but it didn't get a ton of use. Then, I saw this pin--- and while we can all agree my look is vastly different ---I love how mine turned out. Inspiration works in funny ways. I saw that image and loved everything about her look. When I started "recreating" it in my own closet, I made it work with my boring normal personal style. And to be honest, that is how it should be. I feel it would be totally embarrassing to wear item-for-item what Mira wore. Unless it was Halloween, then we'd call it a costume. 

I also totally love this whole short-sleeve sweater business. While SF has been "cold" the past few days, it hasn't been the cold I grew up with. This sweater helps me transition into winter-wear, but I'm not sweating buckets either. It's a miraculous invention for those who like to mix style + seasons... AKA the mountain girl who one day up and transplanted herself to California. AKA me.

  2. I have a sweater just like this that's been hanging out in the back of my closet since last Winter because I had no idea how to wear it. I always assumed I had to put a long sleeve shirt underneath but I love this look and the belt you added. I may have to pull that bad boy out this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. You look so great, I love that sweater!

  4. High five for this ummazing outfit! I love the sweater, the print and color are simply perfect :) I adore how you kept it simple, it gives the whole look a cosy, yet super stylish vibe! x

  5. Kelli, you have never looked better! That sweater is to die and you are simply glowing. Being in love and San Francisco look good on you, darling.
