Today I’m sharing another installment in my “An Outfit Inspired by…” series! This look mimics the style of one of my all-time favorite style bloggers, Kelly Larkin. In my “An Outfit Inspired by…” posts, I tell y’all about one of my favorite influencers then share an outfit inspired by them that I came up with in my own closet. If you’d like to read some of my previous posts in this series, you can find them here. Enjoy!
Kelly Larkin is a wife, mother, and blogger who moved from New York City to Chicago in 2014. She’s had her blog, Kelly in the City, since 2013 and also has a 70,800 follower Instagram, @kellyinthecity, where she frequently posts photos of her outfits and family, as well as a 7,120 follower Pinterest, @kellyinthecity. She’s been married to her husband, Mitch, for a few years and had the most adorable daughter, Emma, in 2016. Given that she lives in Chicago, a city known for being windy and cold, Kelly’s style is warm and preppy chic, often including lots of plaids, pastels, bright prints, sparkles, and stripes.

The first piece I knew I had to include in my outfit inspired by Kelly was my pink coat. Coats are a must for Kelly in the cold Chicago weather and she’s not one to shy away from wearing them in fun colors like this pale pink! Kelly loves a classy cable knit, so I thought my favorite white knit sweater could serve as a Kelly-esque top. I opted for grey jeans to keep the look light and wore some fun leopard flats, as I’ve seen Kelly incorporate leopard flats into her daily looks several times. Kelly keeps her jewelry pretty simple and preppy, so I stuck to some pearl earrings, a gold monogram necklace, and my Kate Spade watch.
