I copied this outfit hook-line-and-sinker straight from the pages of the January issue of InStyle. I love the “Instant Style” feature in every issue that makes putting together cute outfits as easy as following a recipe. They pick pieces that every woman has in her closet, and create outfit guides to show you how to remix them into several new head-to-toe looks.

I wore this to dinner with Anne of WobiSobi and our friend, Laura, who’s home from L.A. where she’s pursuing a career in filmmaking. The talent and drive of my girlfriends really blows my mind sometimes. I feel so fortunate to be surrounded by such dynamic women in my life, who lift each other up and stand behind one another through thick and thin. I know these kinds of relationships are rare in a world of shallow connections, girl-on-girl crime, and drama-fueled “friendships”, and I treasure every one of them.

I also treasure my make-believe friends that come in the form of fashion magazines and help me dress myself.
