 I love looking at street style photos.  I'm the type of person who can browse on Pinterest for over an hour just looking at street style photos.  So I always find some inspiration from various street style looks.  Normally I'm not one to be so directly inspired by a specific look.  However, when I saw this look I realized that I owned many similar items.  I guess you could consider this a "look for less".  Of course there are some differences between our looks:  her boots are over the knee while mine not even to the knee,  her purse has fringe while mine doesn't, and there's the fact that I'm much more... busty than her.  Other than those few differences, I think I did a rather nice job of recreating this look. 
Street style can seem so intimidating.  With so many street style stars (Alexa Chung, Miroslava Duma, Anna dello Russo), and so many beautiful designers being worn, it can seem impossible to ever achieve the look.  What I've come to realize is that it doesn't require designer clothes to have an amazing, street-style worthy outfit.  I just take some of my favorite pieces and put them together in interesting and unexpected ways.  Of course I would love a Chanel purse to add or some Prada heels to rock, but I know that won't be happening for a long time.  But everyone can make their outfit incredible just by adding their own personal touches.
Don't mind my hair in some of the pictures!  I had recently taken a shower, and my hair takes forever to dry.  So when I went outside to take the pictures most of it had already dried, but some of it managed to clump together and freeze.  Perks of living in the mountains.
