Jessica Alba – Flower Print Inspired Look

It’s not a secret anymore, I like everything there is to like about Jessica Alba, she’s such a sweetheart, a beautiful woman, a talented actress, an inspiring style icon and I’ll stop right about here, enough is enough. These last couple of days, Jess is out promoting The Honest Company’s products and she has been spotted in New York City, wearing what else but a beautiful and 2012 trendy look. It instantly made me think about summer, about prints, about crazy colors and sunny days. A big accomplishment, coming from a cozy winter outfit.

What I loved most about this outfit, is the mixing of bold colors (orange, green) with the floral pattern, both big trends for 2012, and also, the fact that the Oversized Boyfriend Coat, is somehow cutting some of the girlie vibe off, making the look a lot edgier.

Based on these same concepts, I created a more affordable look, from items that are available to purchase at Topshop and ASOS. I would have loved for the coat I used, to be a little bit (or more) brighter, but the shape of the one I eventually picked out, came to be the closest to what I had in mind. Also, there was no way I would pair sandals with a coat, not for an everyday look, not as inspiration for the girls who are actually wondering the streets, in the cold days of winter. Boots would have been the perfect way to go, but where would the fun be in that ?

All in all, it came pretty close to what I had envisioned, too bad not everything that I imagine I’ll find, is immediately available online.
