Springing: Inspired by Interior Design

Outfit inspired by Anthropologie Woodblock Quilt Set

It all happened when I was on the hunt for bedding for a clients design.  I saw the Woodblock Floral Quilt Set and was inspired to pull an outfit together ready for the upcoming Spring season.  A Target gift card led me to get this kimono jacket that just reminded me of the whole bedding ensemble with the navy, rose, & chartreuse color scheme, floral pattern, and pom poms.

I feel like I am constantly on the lookout for nice white tanks with a little interest and sometimes that is hard to find.  I have been Poshing my little heart out selling a ton of stuff (see my closet here: j9design) and when I came across this Deletta cinched waist tank I quickly purchased it.  If you are on Poshmark, I would highly recommend you check out Zora’s Closet.  Only, please don’t get those items I really like (wink, wink)!

For the past few weeks I have been participating with Audrey of Putting Me Together in her #PMTStyleChallenge ‘s.  This week: HAIR!  If you have read any of my past posts, or follow me on Instagram, you know that I am hair challenged, especially when it comes to up-do’s.  I took inspiration from one of my style icons, Princess Leia (yes, I am a Star Wars freak) and started in on doing my braids.

It turned out to be like a double braid head band and I don’t think I could ever in a million years replicate the look.  I really like it though!  I had planned on it being completely up, but that was not in the stars.  After 15 minutes, I was plain ‘ol done!

The evening just after taking these photos I sat down to take a look at one of my favorite magazines, People Style Watch and I found that I managed to pull off three Spring Trends in this look: braids, yellow pumps, & block heels!  Woot Woot!

  1. Janeane, I love love love this outfit! That kimono jacket makes me want spring so badly, especially now that we’re smack dab in the middle of a super snowy winter over in Boston. I love the way you styled the white cinched top – it’s so exciting to see pieces that you purchased from my closet in action! And thank you so much for the shout out 🙂 I’m sure I’ll see you soon on Poshmark! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Zora! I know you are being pounded with snow. I hope Spring comes sooner than later for you! I look forward to shopping your closet again soon and thanks for stopping by my blog.
