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!

    Thank you so much! The blazer is a really soft texture – perfect when I want to be warm on these extra cold Midwest days!

  7. 2.5.15

    Karly you are so cute! You also did so well in your recreation! I wish my feet were bigger so I could get some lovely boots like those!

    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

    I couldn't agree with you more! They've become such staple pieces in my wardrobe, especially this winter with all the cold and snow that we've had. Thanks for hosting the linkup and stopping by, Jana!

    Thanks, girlie! Kinda wish I had the same backdrop as Stephanie's photos, though. πŸ˜‰

  21. 2.3.15

    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™‚

  22. 2.3.15

    Awe, thanks Becky! I've worn the striped/plaid scarf combo more times than I care to admit. But that just means they are great staples! Hope you enjoy Stephanie's blog.

    Yes! I owe finding that blazer all to you. πŸ™‚

  32. 2.3.15

    Thanks, sweet lady!

    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.

  34. 2.3.15

    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™‚
