Recreating a look from Grechen’s Closet

It’s no secret that I’m low-key obsessed with Grechen’s Closet. She’s an OG fashion blogger that has the most effortlessly chic and classic look. I love her style, her adorable dog, and HER. Even though she doesn’t live here in Austin anymore, she’s still one of my favorite blogger pals.

I’m constantly influenced by her style. She also loves her neutrals and classic silhouettes, though she’s a lot better about seeking out sustainable fashion than I. Every so often she puts together a look that I see and freak out because I CAN TOTALLY RECREATE THAT.

A month or so ago, she posted this pic on Instagram and Facebook. And y’all…. I was SHOOK.

Her sweet pupper is the best photobomber in the game!

I was like…..

Black dress…… check.

Denim jacket……. check.

Gray slip ons……. double check. 

So without further ado, here is my look!

Jacket – Modcloth | Dress – Eileen Fisher (similar) | Shoes – Vans (similar) | Photobomb – Tyrone The T-Rex!

I totally forgot to do a dedicated makeup picture, so here’s a close up….

I’ve had all of these pieces for a while, but I’ve never thought to combine them! This is the beauty of following other awesome fashion bloggers. I get so inspired by people like Grechen, Liz at With Wonder and Whimsy, Chastity at Garner Style, Nadia Aboulhosn, Nicole at Writes Like a Girl, and Mia at XO Mia.

I feel like I’m getting better and better at finding pieces that I really WANT to wear in my everyday life. I gravitate towards simple dresses, sneakers, and bold lips. I like neutrals everywhere except my lips. I want every dress and top in black/gray/navy, and I want sneakers in sparkly gold and silver. My wardrobe is getting closer and closer to only containing items I really love and feel like ME in. Without a doubt, this black dress is one of my favorites. I can dress it up or down, and it’s really comfy. I don’t wear anything that makes me feel icky. Life is too short to wear uncomfortable clothes.

What are your favorite pieces in your closet? Do you ever create a new combination that makes you feel like you got new clothes? Share your favorite items/looks in the comments!

  2. I saw you post this to Instagram and wondered if you’d blog it. Here it is! And thanks for the mention, especially alongside other ladies I totally admire! I am telling you, awareness of outfit formulas is a game-changer. Once you see how people put a look together, you can recreate it with items in your closet. How awesome that you had nearly exact substitutes for Grechen’s pieces. A casual look that’s simple, polished, and a touch sporty. Very cute!
