This isn’t the first time I’ve done a little Mary Tyler Moore-esque cosplay with my clothes. Just look at this outfit post from 2014! When I was picking out an outfit to wear for a recent speaking engagement at the ModCloth store in Austin, I looked to one of my very favorite style icons for inspiration. There’s something about the combo of corduroy mini skirt, a necktie blouse, and a ’60s-inspired knit that is quintessentially Mary. I put these pieces together over a month ago, but I’m happy to share the look now as a little tribute after her recent passing.
Did you know that when you go to the ModCloth store in Austin, you can book a styling appointment to have someone shop with you? Y’all, it’s a game changer. It’s free to book one of their ModStylist appointments and someone does all the work for you when you get there. Do you feel a little iffy when it comes to putting outfits together? Are you not really sure what you’re shopping for? A ModStylist appointment is the perfect solution for you. The shop gals are experts in sizing and fit in the ModCloth brands and they all have such a fun perspective on putting together beautiful looks for your real life.
Speaking of styling advice, what do y’all think of this knit sweater? It’s totally not something I would usually buy (so I’m extra glad it worked out!), and I’m interested to find more ways to wear it! I’m thinking with skinny jeans and booties now and with shorts and a cute blouse when it warms up for good.
