*NB for A-Dubs: the mini-FR is all up in the grill of today’s post. Clearly, he’s heard your requests for more pictures of smooth dogs.
Inspired by the oh-so-stylish Style Underdog, today is a copycat outfit–or at least the top portion is. After seeing her rock the outfit from the Banana Republic ad and our own A-Dubs’ continued awesomeness with a coral cardigan, I had to get one for myself. So… my shopping ban of 3 weeks or so went out the window. In my search for a coral cardigan, I ended up buying a couple of pieces which will make their appearance soon but today is all about the coral cardigan (at least I got it on a major sale, right?? I’m also justifying the shopping slip-up as a birthday gift to myself. That’s a thing, right?).
The outfit was probably a little warm for today. It started off in the 50s/10s and ended up in the 80s/ high 20s so I couldn’t really win, comfort-wise. The shirt I’ve got on under the cardigan is the twin to a black one, worn previously on the blog, with invisible-to-the-photo ruffles. It’s also pretty sheer and, since I had a committee meeting today with senior department members, sheer probably wasn’t the way to go. So the cardi stayed on all day.

In other news, I’m going to be MIA for the next week: my dad & his girlfriend are coming to town so I’ll be busy playing host, preparing Canadian Thanksgiving. I’ll be reading your blogs as always but probably not commenting and definitely not posting as trying to explain this whole “style blog” thing might prove frustrating. In the meantime, the mini-FR was demanding to make his presence known in today’s picture-taking endeavors, leading to the following that captures (or would, if you could see my face) our oh-so rational conversations. This is seriously one of my favorite pictures ever:
Whose style did you try and copy (*ahem* cite) today?
