my outfit: blazer & tennies!

I am endlessly inspired by JCrew - and although that seems so cliche these days it doesn't make it less true. JCrew is just very inspiring lately... especially for refined casual wear. Which is right up my alley. I love to spend time perusing their catalogs and inspirations online. The gal on their landing page had-me-at-hello with this outfit. Blazer + tennies? Sure!

So I thought I would recreate something similar from what I already owned...

Do you think that JCrew would mind being called the number one knocked off looks of 2010? Because I glean a lot of inspiration from them. It's likely better than "most knocked off watch" or "most knocked off purse." Inspiration is much better knocked off than real brand names. No?

I digress... any way, on first glance it seemed like the sweet JCrew lady above was leaping. So I tried to "knock" that off as well. Turns out one should look before they leap, err, knock off. On second glance I think she is just standing on her super tippy toes and on first glance I think I look crazy. Pretty sure.

But who doesn't love a little crazy now and then?

Blazer, Gap (similar)
Scarf, Cost Plus World Market (similar)
Tee, Target (similar)
Jeans, F21 (similar)
Belt, Gap
Tennies, Superga (I got mine at GILT for cheaper!)

I like the idea of pairing a blazer with sneakers. I just bought my first blazer (I was anti for awhile, but have grown to like them). It is a Banana Republic one I got at a thrift store for $4! Major score.

Though they are similar, I actually like your oufit better!

You captured the look dead on. I just got a pair of those matchstick jeans this weekend (JCREW) and they will be worn daily!

Your jumping pose is my favorite.
