Fashion Friday: Chic and Simple

This is my first crack at Fashion Friday. I wanted to start with something really simple. Something not too far out of my comfort zone. If you read my post on Tuesday, you know I like fashion. I just don't know how to make it work for me.
When I found this picture on Pinterest, I was drawn in. It's simple. Something I could pull off. Heck, I have most of these pieces in my closet. Or something very similar. White button down....check. Skinny jeans....I have a few pairs. Those shoes. Don't tell anyone, I bought a very similar pair at Payless. Almost 3 years ago. And they're still in the box!

For the items that I don't have, I've been looking for them. :) Yes, I've been doing a little shopping. Spending some of my gift cards, from Christmas. I've been looking for a similar jacket. I've seen one, at Target. But it's dusty pink. Similar structure....and color palette. I might have to bite the bullet. I really want it!!

As far as the bag, again, I seen one at Target. I'd love it for work! Something to carry my laptop, and all my work goodies. I'm not a huge fan of the cuff or scarf. I like the idea. But not the ones on this picture. I'm thinking, a copper cuff. Still big. But more streamlined. And an infinity scarf. Same color palette, but different print. Maybe something floral. What do you think?

Let me know what's inspiring you, these days. Or send me a picture, that inspires you. You can email me at ImAViolet (at) hotmail (dot) com. I'd love to see some new ideas! ~V
