How to Style: Hollywood to Housewife

Happy Thursday everyone! And welcome….welcome to my first edition of what I like to call Hollywood to Housewife. What is it you ask? I find a picture of an outfit adorned by a celebrity (Hollywood, if you will) and I recreate it and make it my own (the “Housewife,” that’s me!).

What I like about this weekly project that I am creating for myself is the shopping of my closet that it requires. I force myself to choose something that has pieces I already own. As tempting as it is to pick a look that would require me to go shopping, I know I have a closet full of pieces waiting to be worn.

There is also that gratification that I am wearing a look so similar to a celebrity for a fraction of the cost. In fact, my whole outfit probably cost the same amount as Kim K’s manicure in this picture. Boom.

I loved this look. Loved it. What appealed to me was how effortless it looked. Plus, with it being in the low 60’s today in PA, it was the perfect outfit for the temps.


Outfit Details: 

 Shirt: Old Navy

Blazer: Target (similar)

Jeans: Target (old)

Scarf: Gap (old)

Sandals: Charlotte Russe (similar)

Purse: gifted

Have a great day and see you next Thursday for my next Hollywood to Housewife!

    They do not insert secret or additional advertising in our material.It's almost always easy to make a joke about the way a cat ends up lying down or sitting. It is also time to start thinking about how you want your My – Space page to look for the holiday.Feel free to surf to my website funny pictures and quotes of kids
