Off the Grid

February 25, 2015

I was excited to be contacted by Boohoo and asked to participate in their Throwback Thursday campaign. This included picking a style icon from the past who inspired me and then creating a look. It was fun to decide on a person, pick the clothing, and then style my outfit as a nod to her. Of course I chose Audrey Hepburn. I love her classic style. I mean, who doesn’t? Now if only I actually looked like her… I picked a fun pair of grid print trousers and a contrast collar blouse in effort to mimic Audrey’s tailored menswear looks. It’s been pretty cold around here, so I styled my pants for church and then with the short sleeve blouse at home. I’m curious, who would you have picked as a style icon?

Totally unrelated to fashion and more on the personal side, but if you are looking for a great devotional for Lent, I highly recommend She Reads Truth. I recommend it in general, but they have a Lent devotional out that I have really been enjoying. They always have a current plan going with all the past ones available. Some are on topics and some are on books of the Bible. The Thanksgiving one was especially meaningful to me earlier this year.

    Omygosh! I’m a big fan of the windowpane plaid plaids and the striped top together. Playing with patterns is so much fun to me, and you’ve definitely created a great look here. The Audrey Hepburn pose at the bottom is especially adorable too.

    Both looks are gorgeous and what a fun challenge. Audrey Hepburn & Jackie O would be my style icons.

    Beautiful look, Amy Ann! It’s so stylish. I’m obsessed with that style earrings. I’ve been seeing those all over. I love the mixed prints with the sleeveless coat.
