My Modern Audrey Attempt

Inspired by Angie's blog post I shopped my closet and used dark denim and a navy cashmere sweater to try to create a modern Audrey outfit. The scarf is from a street vendor in Italy, loafers are the most dressy that I own.
Not shown, but I used a blush JCrew wool Stadium coat because the navy scarf has pink/blush flowers on it. Instead of a pearl necklace I chose large pearl earrings. What do you think? Is it Audrey-esque? Suggestions?

    You are a natural for this look, Joy. I like your metallic loafers and bag with this outfit. They go nicely with the scarf, and everything harmonizes beautifully with your hair.

    I agree with everyone else, Audrey is a great fit for you.  You look terrific.

    I think you look very Audrey-esque ( you have the right body to do the Audrey style). The scarf has wonderful colors and the shoes are beautiful!

    You are an Audrey for sure! :)

    Joy how about these Summer booties: 

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you all for your lovely comments! I do have an Audrey body type but, unfortunately, not her cute gamine features and youth. Angie, those perforated summer booties look wonderful. The review says that these run small and narrow while the Lucky booties I have run large so that a half size smaller than my usual size was the best fit. Any advice on size from your experience with this style?
