White Blazer, Striped Shirt, Capris and Loafers - Inspiration Monday

WHITE BLAZER - Forever 21
STRIPED SHIRT -
WHITE WATCH - Sprout
BLUSH/NUDE LOAFERS - Target
Monday's Inspiration:
Kate Moss
Princess Sparkles always wants macaroni and cheese and nothing else.  It's just a known fact.  But I don't always make macaroni and cheese (and neither do the people we visit), so I always tell Princess Sparkles to try "one bite" of her food.  If she doesn't like it then she doesn't have to eat it but she has to at least try it.  She usually obliges and often times finds that she actually likes the food that she's given.

I have to say I was quite intimidated by Two Birds' "Inspiration Monday" choice for the week.  Kate Moss is the epitome of style and I knew I had nothing that would even come close to those super cool striped capris and that fabulous blazer she was wearing.  But I thought I should at least try to find an outfit even if it wasn't as great as Kate's. 

I decided to keep with the stripes theme and wore a striped tee, along with capris and my summer staple, the white blazer.  Oh, and I'm also wearing my favorite new blush/nude loafers I got at Target on sale!!!

Anyway, I have to admit, I wasn't feeling super inspired by my own outfit.  It's not that I didn't like it, it's just not Kate Moss.  But hey, I gave it a try and that's all I can ask for, right?

***One more week to enter my giveaway!  Thanks for participating!

I think you did a great job of trying to recreate a look by Kate Moss. I mean, who can look as fabulous as Kate Moss except for Kate Moss??

I love that white blazer! This look is so cute!

Mongs said...

you know what Claire? You have your own unique personal style, you don't need to immaculate Kate Moss. You look street chic, classy and all ready for a walk down trendy new york city. All kids seem to like Macaroni and cheese, maybe I should do it for my boys for lunch today. Haven't done it for a while.

you look great. My BIL is such a picky eater. We took him out to eat once and told him to try one bite. He took the potato sat it on his tongue and say he didn't like it.

I love your outfit and it works for you. Plus I would probably wear something closer to your look then the one featured on Kate Moss! Great job and you look wonderful!!

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

I really like your interpretation and nobody besides Kate Moss really needs to wear striped pants! That white blazer is so essential for summer, you're reminding me that it's been on my list for months. I love your look!

Megan Mae said...

I think the proportions of the outfit are spot on. Nothing wrong with taking that as simple inspiration! Love the loafers.

Shea said...

LOVE the loafers, love 'em! And I like that yours is a bit of a more preppy take on the look. I mean that in a really good way; I'm such a sucker for preppy style :)

Meagan said...

I love that you wore a white blazer for this look!

Like your stripes and blazer combo as well. The colors are very fresh.
Glad your daughter at least tries. My daughter is so stubborn and picky (like my hubby) while my son eats everything from eel sushi to crab legs!

Only Kate can pull off being Kate... after all that's what makes her, well, Kate! I think you look cute and casual!

Tara said...

Yeah, I totally adore Kate's striped capris, too, but I'm pretty sure I couldn't pull them off, even if I did own a pair :)

I do love your take on the outfit though...and those shoes are, indeed, awesome!
