Pinned It and Did It

Today for my Pinned It and Did It I chose an outfit.
As soon as I saw this post over on Living In Color Style I knew I had to pin this look and do some kind of version of it.
My version is a tiny bit dressier, but it is still the same concept.
I wore this out to dinner with friends last weekend. 
 It is exactly the look I was going for even though
 husband kept saying...
"I don't get this outfit"
Ya'll know I am a sucker for casual and dressy combined
 and that is exactly what this outfit exudes!
Thank you Elle for your inspiration
 and I hope the rest of you aren't scratching your heads saying...
"I just don't get it!"

I love that. Perfect for the holidays but not too dressy.

This ia right up my alley! I love the juxtapostion of mixing dressing and casual pieces. Your version is better than the original at leat in my opinion. Great job and laughing at your husband not geting it...

Hi Brett,

I love to combine denim with a bit of glam for a totally different look. As usual, you look fab and your tree is so pretty! Hope you are enjoying the festivities of the season. xxL

Most men don't get our outfits most of the time, right? I absolutely love your take on her outfit and once again, you nailed it!

Be on the look out for some snail mail this week too :)

I am not scratching my head at all. This is perfect.
I have shoes like yours but they don't look so good with a dress or skirt as your's do. I wonder what is wrong with them. Or is it me?
Funny, when I got to "know" you the first time, you were photographed in front of the Christmas tree as well. A year gone...
