Months ago, I came across Stephanie Sterjovski’s blog and it instantly became one of my favorite daily reads. She has impeccable fashion sense, not to mention mad skills behind the camera – her blog and Instagram photos are some of the most gorgeous ones I’ve come across. 

When I saw that this week’s prompt for the Creative Closet was to copy or recreate an outfit that you found via Pinterest, in a magazine, etc., I knew that Stephanie’s preppy apple-picking ensemble was going to be my inspiration. Luckily, we were blessed with a sunny and semi-warm day before the blizzard of the season hit, so I could at least envision that it was still fall and I was off to the apple orchard.

Also, are you guys sick of seeing this striped tee and plaid blanket scarf yet?! Well, I sure hope not because neither are going anywhere – I’ve worn both more times than I can count, which just goes to show how versatile and winning of a combination these two pieces can be in any person’s wardrobe.

Don’t forget to visit Jana and Maegen to check out their take on this week’s Creative Closet prompt!

  10. Ooh so cute! you nailed it! there is nothing wrong with a winter uniform either. Mine is a striped long sleeved tee and bright patterned scarf or a bright solid sweater with a patterned scarf. No shame. πŸ™‚ XO -Alexandra

  21. I am having a love affair with those boots! I desperately needed to replace my other black knee-high boots, so when I saw these on sale at Target with their fabulous quilted back, I knew they had to be mine. πŸ™‚

  33. If you can still find this one at Target, it was less than $12 when I picked it up! I never realized how versatile a camel blazer can be.

    Posted 2.3.15 Reply
  34. Oooh, GORGEOUS! I love the camel blazer with the stripes and plaid. And no way would I get tired of those two pieces–they're so classic and you can wear them a million different ways. πŸ™‚
