Chambray dress and a blazer

So, that was a real original title, huh? It's exactly what I'm wearing. I have a foggy brain thanks to the loss of an hour this weekend. I love the longer daylight hours, but it happens naturally, so why do we have to mess with the clock?
I based this outfit on a pin I have saved, but I can't seem to find it to link to right now. I guess I have too many pins? The inspiration outfit has sneakers, but I was going to a church and a wedding shower later, so I switched to my leopard flats so I would be a little dressier. This is one of those season neutral outfits that could  work fall or spring.  See how I last wore this dress in the fall HERE and  four more ways HERE.

Marsala and leopard

This combination of marsala (burgundy) sweater (worn before here)  and camel pants (with navy and red here ) just screamed to have leopard with it. I could have added my leopard pumps but went with the lower heel nude ones and pulled in the leopard with the clutch. I spent some of my Christmas money on the clutch after wanting and searching for one for over a year. The Clare V is out of my budget for a clutch. I carry a clutch as a fun bag on the weekends, but it doesn't serve me much during the work week. Totes are better suited for that.
What's your favorite bag choice?
Hope you had a great weekend. We spent it working on taxes, some photography projects and scrapbooking.

If you are looking for a basic piece that adds some punch, look no further than a black and white striped tee. There are thousands of ways to wear it, well okay, maybe just a few hundred, but it's a must have item in my opinion. All of  the pieces in this outfit are what I call basics but together with some quirky fun shoes and accessories (how cute and fun are these earrings ?), they make a not so basic outfit.

Here's a look back at the last time I wore these shoes:

I'm using Bridgette Raes for inspiration again. I'm not sure this worked out as well as I'd hoped, but I was at least dressed. I might try this again with a different green blouse, but I do like the combination of teal and mustard. I swapped the fringe cardigan from the inspiration post for a boyfriend blazer. Using other posts for inspiration is not about copying piece for piece but more about using your own closet to find suitable substitutes. The inspiration post outfit was also about wearing plaid and plaid shoes were linked in the post, but I subbed my new pointed toe bow flats. I fell in love with these at TJMaxx recently.
Where do you find inspiration and how do you use it?
