Happy Monday everyone, hope your weekends were amazing! This weekend I packed up and traveled to go spend the weekend with my family to go boating. It was a long drive (4 hours each way), but I hadn’t seen them in a couple of months, so it was nice to spend some time with them even if it was brief and a little hectic.
I’ve decided to run a feature on Mondays called “Copy Cat Mondays!” Basically, Ill be taking an inspiration photo from somewhere around the web and then recreating it to make it my own. The outfits wont be exact, but that’s what I think is helpful- especially when trying to recreate high end looks without the $$$ budget. Feel free to grab my button on Mondays and link up to show me your greatest copy cat outfits!

I chose this look from Blake Lively because I loved the casual coolness of the outfit. I think it’s a perfect way to beat the summer heat with a little bit of boho style. Since I haven’t found the perfect jean vest yet this summer (but isn’t Blake’s jeweled vest ahhmazing?) I chose to pair my maxi skirt with a jean jacket and a longer necklace for some added flare. This was the perfect outfit for a casual date night with my fiancee and the jacket kept my shoulders cool before the rain set in.
