Mama Likey

First off, can you tell I had trouble coming up with a title for today's post? :)

Okay, before we get started, I would like to welcome Accessory Mix Auctions as my official sponsor!  Ya'll....my blog is growing up!  :)
If you think YOU might be interested in sponsoring, check out my Sponsors tab for my stats and then contact me for pricing!
 
The above button  (again, designed by Andrea at Slightly Askew Designs) can now be
found on my sidebar!  Just click on it on the sidebar and it will take you where you need to go!
They have auctions on Facebook every Tuesday night at 8:00!

On to the outfit.
This is one of those times when I saw the inspiration picture,
and I immediately knew how I would re-create the outfit.
Brown boots?  check
Blue Jeans?  check
Grey sweater?  check
Long sleeve white t-shirt?  nope - substitute a white tank
Orange belt? nope - substitute an orange necklace
Voila.
I really liked this look!
Thank you Pinterest!

inspiration picture pinned, but originally found HERE (again at Lilly's Style)

Orange Necklace|  Sam Moon
*Check out the Accessory Mix Auction tonight!
The girls said they are going to have several choices for an orange statement necklace!
White Tank|  LOFT
Grey wrap sweater| It's so old I have no idea where it is from. And the tag is cut out.  Fail.
I had lots of trouble finding a similar sweater...but similar-ish HERE and HERE
Dark wash jeans|  Swanky boutique
Brown boots|  Nordstrom, exact pair HERE
(4 different colors available and still on sale...click HERE for some other sale choices I highlighted this weekend in case you missed it)

After looking at the inspiration picture again, I really like the proportion of the long sleeve shirt under the short sleeve sweater better than I do with my sleeveless tank.
Yep, that Lilly really knows what she's doing.

Before you go....
I'm hoping I find some time over the next couple of days to highlight some Valentine's Day gifts that I think would be fun to both give and receive, but just in case that doesn't happen...

Click HERE (or the button below) to shop some ideas for you or your honey for Valentine's Day.
 The people at Nordstrom have it set-up where you can easily shop gifts for her or for him by price.
I appreciate that. No use clicking through stuff that is way out of my price range!

  4. I love the grey sweater with the orange necklace. Adding that pop of color makes all the difference. Honestly, I think I like your outfit with the orange necklace better than with the belt. Thanks for sharing!
