Bellinis at Breakfast

by Jessica Sturdy on June 12, 2012

Like I mentioned yesterday, I was able to attend an amazing breakfast hosted by Birchbox last week! After leaving NoMi Kitchen (two Bellinis in…), I strolled up and down Michigan Avenue and popped into some of my favorite stores — Zara, Nordstrom, & J.Crew.

As of late, I’ve been trying to shop less and re-mix pieces that are already in my closet. I scored this skirt on sale last summer and I believe it was only worn once last year (here). I’m not even going to try to pretend that I’ve only worn this shirt a couple of times… (one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine). But hey, I’d never worn the two together!

The earthy combination of flax and chambray kind of screams “Little House on the Prairie,” but I was hoping the girly bows and baubles would make the outfit a little less “Laura Ingalls Wilder.”

Chambray Shirt: Madewell // Skirt: J.Crew (old, but similar styles here, here, here, & here) // Leopard Flats: J.Crew (similar here & here) // Necklace: Express (old, but similar here) // Ring: Kate Spade // Leather Bag: J.Crew (sold out, but similar for only $40!) // Buckle Bangle: H&M (similar) // Watch: Michael Kors (similar) // Nails: Sally Hansen Salon Effects ‘Cut it Out’

I love this outfit, you look fantastic! No shame in wearing your chambray shirt over and over again – it’s such a staple!

This outfit is adorable! And you definitely don’t look Little House on the Prairie-esque. I mean, you are wearing leopard flats, and I’m pretty positive Laura Ingalls Wilder didn’t rock those :)

Love everything about this outfit! The bow on the skirt, your nailpolish, the chambray top, the leopard flats…. well done :)

Not too “little house on the prairie” at all. Love the look and I really love that little bow on the skirt :-)

Little house on the prairie has nothing on you sister! ;) Cute combination with the skirt, I like it! I have also been trying to shop a little less, but have yet to do the “little less shopping” part. It’s the thought that counts right?

Love the bag that you have, and I love the similar one at Bakers for only 40$ even more! Needless to say I purchased it right away!
