Today's Everyday Fashion: Gucci

Runway looks: so pretty to look at, but they don't necessarily translate well into real life! I love the color combo in this Gucci runway look, so I gave it a try with my own clothes. Even with the toned down re-creation (I decided to skip the hat, faux fur and necklace, among other things!) I still think it's a bit "much" and I'm not sure this outfit would fly in my own daily life. I'm excited to hear what you think though - would you attempt this Gucci-inspired look? How would you wear it?

ps. I'm really excited to tell you guys about a project I'm working on! I was selected by Chevy to be one of six team captains for SXSW this year (the nation's largest social media conference - more than 30,000 people attend)! What that means is that me and my team (team Fresh Squeezed!) are road tripping to Austin in a Chevy, all to raise money for Adopt-A-Classroom. We leave next Tuesday and we will be stopping to visit the 3 classrooms we are sponsoring - in Orlando, Tallahassee and Houston - along the way. Please check out our website to see how you can donate money directly to the classrooms (as an individual or as a business), and follow our journey of 1,200 miles! :-)
