Inspired by Inspiration

I recently took photos of Kaitlyn for a post on Sisters Marie and her outfit was inspired by a fellow blogger. Her inspiration outfit totally inspired me to do the same, try something I haven't tried (pairing wise) before. This dress has been worn so many times, but never in the winter and never with a blouse under it. 

As the outfit started coming together, I decided I wanted to print mix as well as add some color. By adding my paid peplum coat over the polka dots I had a fun play-on-prints, but since they are both black and white I felt like it fit nicely. To add some color I added my cobalt heels and bag, this emerald statement necklace I borrowed from Katie, and a red lip. I mean, you need the red lip, no? 

OK, we have to mention the Prada sunglasses. I am so in love! They are sold out everywhere but Ditto has you covered. You can have designer glasses (prescription ones too ladies & gentleman!) shipped to you each month. Plus if you use my code, SADB, you can get your first month from free. I think we all know where you need to go after you finish reading this post. ;) 

I also am pretty in love with my hair. This is the second time I have tried this braided pony (first time here) and it is so easy to do! It honestly only takes about 10-15 minutes and is a great style for day two or day three hair. Cute, no?

Dress: Nordstrom // Shoes // Bag // Coat: T+J Designs (similar) (similar) // Blouse: Piperlime // Sunglasses: Prada via Ditto (use code "SADB" to get 1st month designer glasses FREE!) // Necklace: Swap w/ Kaitlyn // Watch // Cuff: Coach // Ring // Earrings: T+J Designs

In the end I was so happy with this look. I felt confident and I love that I got to wear this summer midi dress mid-winter. What else can I mix and match? Oh yeah, this is going to be fun...I am super inspired to try some more out-of-the-box looks!

What do you think of this pairing? Do you pair blouses under dresses?
