What I Wore | Lily Collins Inspired Outfit for Work

Hello lovelies! So I've noticed that I have just done like a row of Lily Collins type posts & videos [on my YouTube channel] this week, that perhaps you can just tell that I'm really, truly loving her style right now. What do y'all think? *grin*

What I'm Wearing
Jumper -- H&M [$3.50]
Jean Pencil Skirt -- J.Crew via thredUp [$5.93]
Leopard Flats -- Target [$15]
Gold Post Earrings -- Click Six [$1.99]
Midi Rings -- Forever 21 [$1.90]
Rose Gold Chain Necklace -- Simply Chic [don't remember]
Nail Polish -- OPI in Berlin There Done That
Lipstick -- Bite Beauty in Musk [$12]

When getting ready for work today I had no time for doing my makeup [or hair], so I just wore a lipstick that was in my handbag today. Which was the Bite Beauty lipstick in Musk, which I picked up this past week at Sephora to get my Birthday Award. To say the least, when ever I try out high-end lipsticks I'm always falling-head-over-heels-in-love with the formulation and packaging. There is a difference between high-end and drugstore lipsticks, but I would say the closest drugstore brand to feeling like a high-end one would be the Kate Moss Rimmel London lipsticks. They are affordable & feel moisturizing on the lips. But enough about lipsticks.

For my outfit today, I copied an outfit that I had seen Lily Collins wear to a red carpet event or something. I can't remember exactly now, but the outfit is pictured to the right.

To copy the look, I kept with the same silhouette that Lily's outfit features: pencil skirt & boxy cut jumper. Her accessories are simple: short chunky chain necklace; with simple rings, bangles, and earrings. But decided to forgo wearing any bangles, since they would be in-pratical & they don't really fit my tiny wrists. Also, it was totally an accident that we are both wearing a grey nail polish with our outfit. Ah, yes, I also decided to forgo wearing any type of heeled shoe, since I would be doing a bit of driving & walking back-and-forth from the printer scanning files in the office today. So flats it was -- comfy & simple.

I'm linking up with Fashion & Faith.

Would You Wear/Copy this Look? Let me know in the comments!

Also, do check out this $20 Makeup Challenge video that that I did with my friend, Grace! We both ended up doing a Lily Collins inspired makeup look, so it is fitting to included it with this outfit post.



  1. What a sweet looks darling on you! :)

  2. I love the sweater! It is so cute but simple at the same time! This is a great outfit!

  3. I like the pop of leopard print in your shoes

  4. You're so cute (you remind me of Susan Pevensie from the Chronicles of Narnia). And this outfit was pulled together really well. :)

  5. Love the splash of leopard print! This is an effortless yet stylish look.

  6. You did such a great job of having this mimic her outfit! Lily Collins is so lovely.

  7. While you look absolutely adorable, I probably wouldn't copy it. I have an hourglass shape and have to be sure and wear fitted clothing-oversized shirts just make me look fat! ;)

    Your body type looks terrific in this though! Great job!

  8. I have that same skirt and I love it! When I wear skirts it's one of my go-tos ~Stephanie

  9. How cute! you look adorable in this!! I wouldn't be able to pull this off. -Abi

  10. You look very beautiful, love the sweater.

  11. That outfit is wonderful!! You look gorgeous :)
