I got my Pinspiration from these 3 outfits below. I gotta say though, not to toot my own horn but I kinda like my version even better. Yepp.. I just said I liked my outfit better than two of the most stylish bloggers out there. Whoops. But what the hey, ya gotta have confidence, right? I admired my own outfit all day at work today, and I think it helped the day go by faster because I felt great.

Funny thing happened today... A pilot asked where I was from. He said he asked because he didn't think I looked American. He's from Russia, and he thought I was Russian! Ha! What's weird is that I've been told that before. I've been told that I don't look American, I've been told I look European and Russian. But I guess if it comes from a Russian himself, then I MUST look Russian! Lolzz.

What do you think? Do I look American to you?



  1. Very cute outfit! You really know how to find great goodwill pieces! As for the Russian comment, when I was in Ireland I was mistaken for being Ireland Irish quite a few times. My ancestors are from there, so I must have that look.

    1. That's awesome that you could keep the Irish genes going in your family! My dad actually just told me that he thinks we have Russian ancestors.. Who knew! Haha

  2. Love your outfit girly!! Yes, you do kinda look Russian or some kind of European look... can't quite put my finger on it, but you don't look American!! :) I am always told I look Greek or South American...haha.

    1. Thank you! And you do look kinda Greek/ Spanish!

  3. Umm... Yeah, totally like your version better! I love that you combined your outfit with a cheetah belt, totally makes the entire outfit even thought the print is so subtle! Thank you for linking up with Diaries of A Bargainista!!


    1. Yay! It's not just me who thinks so! ;) thank ya!

  4. Nice outfit, love the combination. You're great at Thrifting :-)
    Um, actually you do look unAmerican( so not a word), beautiful though :-)

  5. Love this outfit on you!
