My Style Challenge: Art House

An outfit by fellow DC blogger Rachel of Project Beltway has been stuck in my mind, so I decided to put together my own version of the look!

Rachel is on the right! Holly from Refinery 29 - DC on the left.
As you can see, not every look need three thousand billion accessories and five tops layered on and a bag and shoes that each would cost more than your rent! Sometimes all you need to do is thoughtfully put together a few pieces to create a chic outfit - true story!
Here is my look! You can see the inspiration, but also can tell how I adjusted it to my curvier, petite frame. My sweater has a more tailored fit to show off my curves and prevent drowning in fabric and my midi skirt falls just an inch below my knees instead of mid calf. I also work wedge shooties that dip low in the front, helping to keep my legs looking long! I added my vintage faux fur coat, wool beret and a few accessories to polish the look and I was ready to go! I don't know about you, but whenever I put on a beret I feel all artsy fartsy.
I'm wearing: Pink knit turtleneck from Gap, pleated midi skirt from H&M, vintage faux fur coat, wool beret from Barney's, Oliver Peoples glasses, vintage Gucci watch, glass ring from Banana Republic, earrings and rose belt from South Moon Under.
