Okay, very rarely do I spot an outfit on a celebrity which I adore so much that I just have to try to mimic it. But from the moment I saw Lauren Conrad’s outfit last week, I just knew that I had to have a similar one for myself.
The Lauren Moshi elephant tank. The black fringe boots. The leggings. The Chanel purse. Everything just screams fabulous. There is not one bad thing to say about this outfit; it is, in the words of Mary Poppins, "practically perfect in every way."
Of course, being on a college student’s budget, I can’t be expected to have the ability to go out and spend a fortune in cash on just one outfit. So, the result is the outfit that I am wearing right now. One that I believe would do Lauren Conrad herself proud; all courtesy of Wet Seal.
Asymmetrical Tiger Tunic - $18.50. The sleeves are ¾ with button details. The print is vibrant, without being too “look-at-me.” As I’m wearing this outfit at work right now, I thought that the asymmetrical cut was a little too dramatic for the office, so I simply pinned up the side to make it look more like a t-shirt.
I skipped the leggings, and opted for black skinny jeans that have been collecting dust in my closet for the past couple of months. The effect is just as amazing, but provides a little more coverage than transparent, paper-thin leggings would. Though leggings would have provided much more flexibility, as we all know.
Tiered Fringe Boot – $14.75. I was worried that these boots would provide very little tread, so I hemmed and hawed over actually purchasing them, but for $14.75, I absolutely couldn’t resist. I’m glad that I didn’t. These boots are beyond comfortable, and completely worry-free when walking. While the traction isn’t that of a tennis shoe, it’s definitely good enough for walking – and speed-walking – around. FYI: Just for the record, the color may look dark brown in the picture, but they are actually black.
I paired the ensemble with an oversized black patent leather tote that I picked up on sale just before Christmas; and, to make up for my lack of Chanel – and to cover up a low neckline – I tossed on this adorable Star Print Scarf - $9.50. The silver threading throughout the scarf really adds a lot of depth to the entire ensemble that is simply irresistible, if I do say so myself.
The result? A very fashion forward day that will go down in my personal fashion favorites style file.
