Today's Everyday Fashion: Retail Inspiration

I snapped this picture at J.Crew with my phone last summer and decided to re-create it with my own clothes this week. The purple and blue tones go great together, but I think it's the unexpected mix of the gray cardigan and brown leopard accents that make it oh-so-J.Crew (and chic). Pencil skirts work way better for my body type, so that was one thing I wanted to change about the look, but otherwise I dig the way they styled it. How would you modify this look for your own office?
