Betty Draper and a neutral palate

I've been watching so much Mad Men its infiltrating my outfits. Even though I work in advertising I just never got around to it until about 2 weeks ago and now I'm already through the first 3 seasons. This seemingly never ending cold has left me with long evenings to lay in bed and marathon my way through it on Netflix. I cough and blow my nose while everyone looks impeccable, elegantly sipping drinks and talking fast. It makes me feel so much better.
Betty Draper is the best character to look at. The best. She's always wearing gorgeous colors and silhouettes and has the prettiest clothes and hair, so today I channelled her a bit in neutral toned clothes and a vintage lucite hair clip from the 60's.
H&M striped sweater, Betsey Johnson eyelet skirt from the outlet store, thrifted Candies flats, Halogen purse, vintage tortoiseshell hair clip

  17. I can't get past the first ep of Mad Men because of the crazy misogny-but the fashions, ohhhh man. Love it.  And  I'll try to watch again sometime, I really mean it! You look adorable, and I want to copy this outfit asap.

  18. Kallie you look so sweet and perfect and not sick at all! I think all the feminine wear I have been sporting has been slightly influenced by you as of late :) I have not seen madmen but I have wanted to!

  19. Yes Mad Men is indeed the best show ever. I am in total Mad Men withdrawal. The outfits are amazing and the show is so well written. Lovely Betty Draper inspired outfit.

  20. See, I like what you did. When you say you channel Betty Draper, I can see it, but you still look modern. Me, I just wear a poofy '50s dress and look out of place. You look so pretty!

  21. Whats wrong with a poufy 50's dress? I swear if you saw how other people dress where I work you'd realize I look completely out of place. Everyone's very sleek/chic/collegiate. I'm like color/fabric explosion. ;)

  22. Great colour combination! Your tanned legs too teehee. Lovely outfit, what an inspiration.
