Get the Look: Reese Witherspoon

Today is the first post for the blog’s new section, “Get the Look”.  Like you, I often browse the Internet and magazines for inspiration on latest trends and new outfits to try.  Living in the city, I can find what I am looking for on the streets, but I always have my go-to celebrities whose style always speaks to me.  I recently stumbled upon this picture of Reese Witherspoon out and about and it immediately piqued my interest.  I am a huge fan of Reese’s preppy meets classic style.  Reese and I have very different body types, so as much as I love her style, I know we can’t always wear the same things.  This outfit however, would totally work for me.  I love the simplicity, color combo, and how classy this outfit is.   It is perfect for brunch in the city, shopping in the Hamptons, or cocktails on a summer night.  Below I have put together my take on this ensemble and I think it complements it well.  So tell me, where do you find your style inspiration?

What a week!  Hope you had a good one!  Mine was spent either glued to my computer or working out my frustrations at the gym.  I had very little time to play and have fun, but I feel like I wasn’t alone.  There was a lot of sad news this week and I felt tension all around me.  One positive thing was the weather.  Usually in August, we have to endure uncomfortable humidity, but this week, was so cool.  My usual ensemble of shorts and summer dresses wasn’t enough coverage.  I cannot remember the last time I wore jeans in August, can you?   I don’t know about you, but I am intrigued for what this means for the upcoming months.  Early fall, delayed summer, snow in September?  Who knows at this point!  All I do know is that I feel a cold coming on and think it’s best to stay close to home this weekend.  I am planning on trying a new restaurant, do a little fall shopping, and go to one of these movies.  Below are some fun links that I want to share with you.  Enjoy the weekend share with us your fun plans in the comments below!
