That title, by the way, is supposed to read mind like Mindy, not mind like Do you mind?. So when I tell you that my outfit was inspired by an episode of The Mindy Project, it make a little more sense.
Thanks to getting rid of cable and being a slacker watching shows on Hulu, I didn't even realize how long ago this episode aired until I saw that my buddy, Sharon, recreated this outfit, too. (Funnily enough, I came across her post while Googling this photo of Mindy). But I just watched it, so it's new to me.
As soon as I saw this, I fell in love. And as I filed the idea away (literally - I keep an excel file of outfit ideas because I'm super cool like that), I began to realize that I actually have all of the pieces I need to recreate this look. So I grabbed an old black & blue striped shirt that I came thisclose to getting rid of when cleaning out my closet last week (see? Hoarding is a good thing), then grabbed an even older grey hoodie and topped it with a vest. I wanted to add my one and only sparkly statement necklace as seen here, but just could not find it anywhere. Incidentally, my favorite lipstick - a 69¢ tube of Wet n Wild - has also gone missing. I searched for both for a good half hour, and came up empty handed, then had to find acceptable substitutes. And this is why I am perpetually late showing up to my friends' houses.
