I pull fashion inspiration from many different places but this one I ripped directly off of Instagram. I’d say let’s do a “Who Wore It Better” but Chrisspy would win, hands down! I started following her fairly recently after I saw a post that she tagged with the genius caption, “Thick thighs save lives.” Yassss! My kind of girl.

I don’t have the confidence to pull off everything she wears (yet) but when I saw this look, a light bulb went off. I had all of the pieces in my closet, I just never thought to put it together. While the basics are identical, I added my own twist with accessories. Take for example these reflective shades I picked up at a local vintage shop in Snohomish, Washington, and the Kendra Scott necklace I snagged via RocksBox. (Use the code “ellenbff4” for a free month!)

My favorite accessory is the JORD Watch. This stunner is a handmade, wooden watch and unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. I had a hard time trying to pick just one of their gems and ultimately went with the Cora watch in Purple Heart & Pearl. Check out the entire JORD Watch line for both men and women here. #flickadawrist Who do YOU follow for fashion inspiration? Is it someone on Instagram? A YouTuber? A celebrity? Drop me a comment below because I’d love to check them out!
