Inspired by Pinterest - What I'd be wearing if it was actually Fall in Miami

What's that saying? One man's misfortune is another man's gain? Well unfortunately for my professor, he was arrested for soliciting prostitution. Fortunately for me, his class was cancelled today. Anyway, innocent until proven guilty. Despite having a ton of other things to do today, I found Pinterest (I'm behind on the bandwagon, I know). I happened to stumble upon a picture and outfit that I loved, and I decided to recreate it, but only for blogging purposes because it was 87 degrees outside today. 
Cardigan: Banana Republic, XS
Green Button Down: Polo, 2
Jeans: Abercrombie & Fitch, 00R
Shoes: Sperry 
Belt: Ann Taylor Factory
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack
Bling: Movado, Ann Taylor Factory, Fossil, John Hardy, Unknown
I love how the model looks freezing cold yet strong, lol. How I wish I was freezing right now.. It doesn't help that my air conditioning is on the fritz and it is 80 in my apartment as I type this. I do get to go home to CT in exactly a week, so that's something to look forward to! I wasn't wearing makeup before the "shoot," but I decided to throw on some black eye liner to accentuate my eyes, and I put foundation on my lips to really make them washed out like the models are in the picture. My hair was already messy, but I used a curling iron to flip out the front pieces on the left and right. I decided to add some extra jewelry on the neck and wrists to make this outfit more "me." 
 And lastly, I had a little fun trying to take a jumping shot. I'm sure my neighbors downstairs were super pleased to have me thumping around, lol :)
