November 21, 2012 - Easy Outfits, Style

Orange + Plum

Yesterday I confessed to you that I bought the same jacket as my friend Mindy the day after she got it.  If you missed that post, check it out HERE so the rest of this makes sense.  Oh! And I have a very special announcement at the end of this post too, you won’t want to miss that!

Well, when I left you yesterday, I told you that I texted Mindy and fessed up to my copycatting.  Turns out she didn’t plan to wear her new coat to the football game that night so we weren’t twinkies.  Then she laughed and said since I wore mine first, everyone will think she copied from me.  I’m glad she’s a good sport and I’m making sure everyone knows SHE was my inspiration!  🙂

Here’s how I paired it up with my plum cords, a chambray shirt and scarf. Purple and orange were made for each other!

It’s Your Turn:  Have you ever copied a friend or had one copy you?  Were you flattered or miffed?  Tell me in the comments.

Drum roll, please….

      I totally agree, Heather! Have a wonderful turkey day too!

  • I love that coat! I’ve had that happen to me in the past – I think whether I was annoyed or flattered really depended on the situation (and maybe how good a friend the person was too)!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  • I love your jacket! Great color!

    This Looks Good On You

  • Love how orange and purple go so well together. That is a great jacket! I usually try to copy my sister, but she always get the last item at any store. So, I end up borrowing it from her!

    • PrettyOn

      Borrowing from your sister, lucky you! If mine lived closer I’d do the same.

  • orange and purple look great together! Steals and Deals hop eh? you know I’ll have something to link up!

  • This is so funny. I read your previous post as well just bc i wanted to be in the loop. I have never bought the exact same thing..maybe in a diff color. It has turned out that a friend and I get the same thing, and later find out. Its great to have friends with the same style. 🙂

  • My girlfriends and I always shop off one another…that’s what friends are for, right?? I would have gotten that coat too! Love the style and colors!! Thanks for linking up, sweet girl. Happy Turkey Day!

  • Love the orange jacket with the plum pants. Such a pretty combo.

  • I agree! Purple and orange are fabulous together:)

  • Oh I loveeee how you styled these plum cords!!

    I always find inspiration from other people….that’s the great thing about having girlfriends and blog friends!

  • I love the color combo! Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Love the colour and the photos are gorgeous. great idea for a link up too! Thanks for joining up with Wardrobe Weds :o)

  • Those colors look amazing on you!

  • Great look, I know what you mean about “copying,” though. I think as adults, most people are flattered, I know I’d be 🙂

  • Mindy

    I think I want to copy you and find that scarf it looks great with “our” jacket 🙂 I take it as compliment that you would like anything I buy because, you my friend, have GREAT style!!

    • PrettyOn

      Aww, thanks Mindy! They might still have that scarf, it really is great and goes with SO much. But especially “our” jacket. 🙂

  • This outfit is gorgeous! I love the color combination. So perfect for fall.

  • Love this look! Found you via Casual Chic Mom. Great ideas and will definitely “like” you on FB. Would love for you to follow along on my blog (from one mom to another!)..
