Legally Blonde?

I wore this last week when we had a minor cold snap.
All I could think when I looked at myself was that I was wearing the outfit Elle wore on her first day of class at Harvard.  You know the one...
I am not sure why because it is not the same color,
 it is pants and I am not wearing a tie,
 but I just thought that anyway.
 (and no, I never secretly ever wanted to go to Harvard!)
This outfit came about because
 my red skinnies were just sitting in the bathroom
 and the drapey cardi looked nice and warm. 
 Add some sequins and you have yourself an outfit.
An outfit that gave me irrational movie flashbacks,
 but an outfit non the less.
I really like the color combination of this outfit.
  I will have to remember this for the fall next year,
 because I think our last cold snap just left. 
 It is in the 80's today.

Do you ever think of some random movie or TV show outfit when you put something on??
Even if it is irrational????

sequin top/cardi-Loft
red skinnies-Old Navy

I can definitely see the inspiration! I guess I never really remember outfits that well from movies other than from Intolerable Cruelty with Catherine Zeta Jones! Even she looked awesome in a texas tuxedo!

I like your red pants, and Elle Woods is always good for inspiration.

You've got the bend and snap of style mastered, girl! Note to self: Need sequined top.

How adorably preppy and sassy is this outfit! I love that it's recreated from Legally Blonde- I'm very inspired by Emma Pillsbury, the guidance counsellor from Glee!
