ย Celebrity Copycat week pushed me over the edge a bit. I tried and failed to get photos on more than one occasion. Things just weren’t lining up. I was taking things a bit too literally. But when I can across this photo of Rachel Bilson online I knew that I wanted to do an outfit inspired by this outfit. I really, REALLY, wish I had a pair of hot pink, wide leg pants. But alas, I don’t. I knew I had a a white tee, blazer and some new statement sunnies. So I went from there. And this, is the result.

I said to Hubby on our way back from getting the photos that I think this is a look I’d be happy to wear. Block colours, streamline lines, casual and cool. It’s my new thing. I want to make my wardrobe work for that relaxed feel of the likes of Katherine Hepburn in days of old. Rachel Bilson, Khloe Kardashian and Nicole Richie are other ladies with laid back styles I love. I think the hair is taking over. I used to love to look polished all the time, and my hair would fight against that. So I’m embracing a whole new style.

And did you see!! I found black ‘suede’ wedges at KMart. FINALLY. Oh my goodness, I have been looking everywhere for a simple pair of wedges all year. Everything I found was too fussy or high or low or ugly. A simple black, high-heeled wedge can take you anywhere, if you ask me. Work, parties, events, and even random stuff where you just want the height or magical leg elongation thing. Anyway. Suffice to say that I’m pretty darn excited to have found them. Even if they ARE at least a half a size too small.

    • Lucky swap indeed! It’s a bit fabulous. I added an extender piece to make it this long and love it more than ever. Until my hair catches in it, then OUCH.

  • Carly Findlay

    That necklace makes you look tall! And the heels are cute! I really like this outfit ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I AM TALL. Haha. 5’11. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      So glad I found them. Thank goodness, been looking for ages. Thank you Carly.

  • Rachel Bilson has great style, and those pink wide leg pants are killer! You did a great job shopping your wardrobe and channeling her look. You look fabulous as always.

    • She absolutely does. I found myself bookmarking a bunch of her outfit images. Really expanding my ideas on what I wear at the moment. It’s a nice change. And I’ve made it my mission in life to find some pants like these, so I’m going to learn to sew. I’m THAT desperate for them.

      Thank you. xo

  • Another fab outfit lovely lady! Those pants are to die for right! I love your interpretation! Awesome job!

    • Thank you Amanda! It took me a while but I got there. Phew.
      The pants, sigh, I must find some.

  • Tabitha

    I love me some Rachel Bilson! Great choice! Your outfit looks great, I thoroughly enjoy your colour blocking! x

  • GREAT CHOICE, love it xx

    • Thanks Dani. For the comment and for hanging in there with the whining and sooking about this week. HA.

  • Ashley Rose

    Love this and those sunglasses really make it come together! Looking fabulous!

    • Thanks Ashley. For $10 these babies are earning their keep. Cheap and cheerful and so unique.

  • You look FANTASTIC.
    I love the purple on you. Such a great look!

    • Thaaaaanks! I’m loving it a bit myself. Might be worked in as a bit of a signature look, given all the blazers I now own. Haha.

  • Totally fab Hun the necklace really brings it all together. Thanks for the heads up about the wedges I be needing them too.

    • Thank you Trudie. It’s a great piece. I really didn’t like it shorted, but with the extender, I love it!

  • Cherie

    You nailed this one Doll. Totally gorgeous, stylish and self assured, Loving your look ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Thanks Cherie. Too kind. xo

  • ylenia

    you all have done an amazing job! I like your look, very stylish, Brava!!!

    Love, Ylenia from Longuette

    • Thank you. It was a fun week this week. Once I stopped freaking out and obsessively scrolling through celeb photo galleries. Haha.

  • You know, I never really thought about it, but I can see how Rachel Bilson’s fashion is similar to yours. She does like her blazers like you! I really wish that plus size wide length pink pants existed! I’m also very in love with your sunnies!

    • It is, isn’t it. So random when I came across her, I just kept saving images. So that’s a sign, right. Very similar style. Looking forward to developing my own look a little and seeing where it ends up.

      Seriously. We NEED to find these pants in a plus size.

  • Bek

    You look gorgeous. What a stylish chic look you have going there, just like Rachel Bilson. ๐Ÿ™‚ Love your sunnies so much.

  • Loving this look on you. Clean lines and blazers are awesome. Rachel Bilson has great style. Awesome that you’ve been inspired to explore your own style from this outfit. Can’t wait to see where that takes you. Oh and if you find those pants in pink, link please!!

    • Thanks Jeanie. And yes, it opened up some doors and I’m a bit excited by the prospect actually. I’ve been just bumping on from one outfit to another but it finally feels like I’m nutting out my own style.

      And did you see, another necklace! Go me. ๐Ÿ˜›

      • Yes I noticed the necklace uber impressed. =)

  • Ahahaha Suger this look is totally you! I can see you making this a wardrobe essential!!

    • I know, right!? Or is that bad, like I haven’t really tried very hard? Either way. That is EXACTLY what I said to Kel. I can see it becoming a staple look. I have all these maxi skirts, might as well use them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Jac @ Common Chaos Chronicle

    You’re rockin’ the blazers Suger. Looks fab. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Falala Mele

    I love your necklace! And I definitely dig her style….forever in love with her hair and eye makeup and I just can’t get enough of Hart of Dixie. Fave show atm

    • Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I haven’t seen any of Heart of Dixie but I have serious plans for a download one weekend very soon. Everyone raves about it.

  • Hey sexypants: love the necklae – and the sunnies – you look hot! xxx

  • just realised I hadn’t commented yet (we have an out of date internet explorer at work and commenting doesn’t always work..) but I love the simplicity of this outfit. and also its versatility – dress it up, dress it down… love it.

    • Thanks Claire. Me too. I’m going to be working it into my normal rotation, for sure.

  • Melissa Mitchell

    I really love this look on you. Adore Rachel Bilson (I love Hart of Dixie, do you watch it?). Gorgeous.
