Shop Your Closet: Orange Jacket

 
So if you have found yourself around DahliaLynn lately you know that I recently did the insane.  I decided to not shop for clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry, etc. for 6 months, and I really wanted to share the journey with you.  I have been taking Thursdays on the blog to give mini updates on how things are going.  It has been an education realizing how often I jump at the opportunity to get a little something for myself here and there.  
 
So a big part of not going crazy with this whole thing is to really "shop" my own closet.  I am hoping that this shopping ban will really make me take time to appreciate the things I have and really help me edit my closet down to that dream closet.  Though I like to think that each morning I wake up ready to dream up my next big look sometimes it is just tough when you have been staring at the same clothes week after week.  That is when I really find that looking at those inspiration photos can help.  So along with creating a "Woulda If I Coulda" Pinterest board to track my "non-spending," I have also created a Pinterest Board called "Shop Your Closet" to collect looks that I am hoping to recreate with my own items.
 
First up, this cute little paring from the always stylish Rachel.  I simply loved the pop of orange with the neutral hue, and thought I have an almost identical jacket.  Yes, yes I can shop my own closet for this very outfit.  Though I don't have a simple nude dress, I do have a muted grey that I thought would go perfect with the orange jacket.  Throw in the sunnies, statement necklace, bag large enough to carry a dog or small child, and nude heels and I am practically Rachel.  How did I do?  Happy Wednesday...J

  2. I love it! It's even better because you didn't have to shop for it. I love that you have organized it too, using the pinterest boards. Awesome, awesome, awesome.
