The Huntsman

Ok, so here's the deal.
I was watching TV the other night, and this fine gentleman (about the age of 75) had this incredible ensemble on.
A flannel shirt, fancy vest, and an amazing velvet blazer on top.
So, I dug through my closet (and my husband's drawers!), and put this together.
As I walked out to take outfit shots, I thought I had to share the inspiration behind this look.
So remember...never underestimate who you'll be inspired from!
I've named this look "The Huntsman". Suiting, I think.
















Anybody else have silly inspiration sources?
I feel like there's probably a world of possibilities out there.
I think as long as you're looking for inspiration, you'll find it...
no matter how strange or silly or random or offbeat it may seem.

xo,
Christen

  19. This is probably my favorite outfit I've seen you wear. I'm sitting here propping up a baby's head so he can hang on to my boob while I post this little note to you, that's how cute I think it is. Hahaha. And I thought about not breaking the birth news to you this particular way if you hadn't heard through our million friend grapevine but it did only happen wednesday and we can't even remember who we've told so I figured I should go ahead and let you know. Maybe you'd be extra flattered. :) ....... I always regret buying/keeping blazers in my closet but this makes me want to go for it again. You look adorable. And not pregnant. HAHA. I imagine you must know who said that because that's kind of hilarious.
