Outfit Inspiration: Mackenzie Horan

If you have not heard of Mackenzie Horan or her genius blog and online boutique Design Darling you need to head to her sites immediately...like, right now! In all seriousness this girl has amazing personal style and walks the fine line between classic preppy and on trend girly so perfectly.

I found this picture while obsessing over pursing her blog and immediately put it in my "outfits I need to re-create" file. I love the unexpected use of the classic leather belt and trendy booties with a puffer vest and stripes. Perfect example of her preppy girly style.

For my take on this outfit I incorporated a navy puffer vest and lighter jeans so it wasn't such a dark color palate since I don't have a raspberry vest like Mackenzie.  My booties are J. Crew and one of my favorite purchases ever, I have been able to style them so many different ways! My vest was a steal ($15!) from Forever 21 and the jeans/striped tee are Gap. I wore this outfit on a chilly day running errands with my roommate and love how it turned out!

What do y'all think about this look? Would you like to see more personal style posts or posts with me re-creating outfits? Let me know what you think!
