I have wanted to re-create this look for a while now. I was waiting to find the perfect black blazer and crew neck tee as I had the other items. Not sure what I was thinking in regards the blazer, because I have a navy fitted one from target that I love, so I realized why don't I just order the black one too. It's perfect and I know when I can't let something get out of my head like this re-creation from Pinterest. that it's a must do. I never quite found the feminine crewneck tee I was hoping for but I got this perfect every day steal one from Old Navy for under $10. 

Time for another Two-Fer with this recreate for our Fashion Link-Up with The Blended Blog and Shay, Mel and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday.
However, let's talk size, it is obvious that this model is anorexic, LOL! I think two of her legs make one of mine and I do wish my pants were more the lighter shade like hers. I couldn't justify buying just regular red pumps for this outfit but I have these lace-ups that I adore. So this outfit works even though I still like hers better, ha ha! 

Now, time for some What's Up in the Nine neck of the woods

1. WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK: Creamy Chicken enchiladas, roasted veggies, salmon, My mom's ham and beans, berries and nuts. What we are not eating: Sugar!!

My mama's ham and beans!

2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT: Productions in our basement by these guys. Oh they look so young. When they were pre-teens, they liked to do "shows for us" Music, dancing, you name it....They'd work their butts off, then call us downstairs for the performance. Miss those Productions!

10. WHAT I’M WEARING: Lots of pink. 

11. WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND: Probably a day date on Saturday with Mr. Nine and some basement storage organizing. Eek.

14. BONUS Question, ~Who Is Your Favorite Bachelor: Gasp....I do not watch the Bachelor...I watched season one and The Bachelorette with Trista (who I loved) but haven't seen an episode since. So, MY Favorite Bachelor? My sweet hubs before I snagged him up! ;-)

Can't wait for you to Link-Up with The Blended Blog ladies and myself for the New Year Styled Link-Up. What awesomeness are you styling'?


  1. Such a super post, Andrea. I love all the outfits and you've really nailed your style steal. Your fat Feb Tuesday must be our Pancake Day. Any chance if your mum's ham and beans recipe? Looks just the thing for a cold day.

  2. You nailed it as per usual girl! The pop of red with the animal print just WORKS!! I'm so happy that homeland is back - I have a feeling it's going to be a good season! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  3. I'm glad you didn't settle for a just a red pump. Your lace up pumps are gorgeous! I also love how you are wearing lots of pink. One of the best colors ever :)


  4. Leopard pants?! I've never seen them before but I love them! They look great on you! And pink is my favorite color to wear this time of year too :) I'm not a big Bachelor fan, either!

  9. You had me at LEOPARD!!! Love the whole look and those heels are hott!! Those enchiladas look delicious... My son puts on a show fur us with karaoke and his drums. I need to soak it all up now!! :)

    Brittany :)

  10. You look better in it than her anyway! We used to do productions for our parents too, I wonder if little man is going to put on some shows?? I am jealous of all of your fun trips. I think Jax is finally getting old enough to have fun on some trips, so hopefully we'll get back to going places soon. And you stole my heart with the packzi. We don't have any bakeries nearby that really make them. In years past one of my coworkers would get some in Chicago and ship them to me!!

  11. Totally makes me miss my leopard pants...they were one of the things I tossed last year on the closet cleanout. I love, love that pink wrap top on you!! You look lovely in pink. Tell your momma she would win my heart with those lima beans..yummy. My family is not such a fan but when we go to my home town and eat at my fave bbq restaurant I always get them. So much trip fun! I'm ready to go, go, go but waiting on our baseball schedule so I can make some plans.

  12. Those leopard pants look killer on you!! I love your style even though it's stuff I could never pull off :)

    Ohhh productions by your boys sounds so, so cute!!! I love when my older kids put on "shows" for us too!

  13. Girl---you look hot in this outfit!! I just wore my red lace up shoes yesterday, but when it started snowing, I had to change to boots!!

  14. Those leopard pants are fabulous and they could not have been styled more perfectly! LOVE the red heels! Such a great Valentine's day date look!


  15. You are beautiful & fabulous but all I am interested in right now is NEW BUILD!

  16. LOVE that look!!!

  17. I love leopard!! Please tell me where you got those pants and shoes!! Did I miss the info??

  28. Love all the outfits- especially the chambray shirt with pink sweater! Happy Wednesday!

  29. SLAAAAY! You look amazing in those leopard pants!

    And isn't it so fun getting your ECLP all set up? I look forward to doing that every year. There's nothing like opening a new planner with those fresh sheets of paper just waiting to be written in!

  30. Andrea! I have to say that I much prefer YOUR outfit to the models! You look awesome, lady! I love those pants and ALMOST bought some for myself when I saw that ON had them on sale, but I just don't think printed bottoms would work on me. Loving all of the pink you have been wearing!

  31. Ok, Love. First of all, next time you decide to pull off leopard, text me! I pulled this same look off last year, I think, and we coulda been TWINKIES!!! Wah-wah! And the same exact pin, too!! You look so fashionable and cute and put together! I love it! Next, those kids! Those boys look like NKOTB!! Loved seeing that flashback pic! I started to buy an EC calander/planner this year, but backed out at the last minute. Let me know if you like yours and I might decide to do it anyway. Even if the first month of the year is nearly over! Never heard of patczki! You know we celebrate Mardi Gras on Fat Tuesday down here!

  32. So adorable! I just bought a pair of leopard pants the other day and I'm obsessed with them! Also, I'm so ready for the sunshine and warmth to return as well. No more dreary days! :)

  33. I have totally been crushing on some pink lately too. All of those pink looks are so cute. I am also loving that first look with the leopard and red heels. Woo hoo, hot Mamma!

  36. Hello gorgeous!!! You look amazing in those leopard print pants and I like your red lace-up heels way more than the Pinterest model's! You also look amazing in all of that pink - blush is totally your color!!! :) Hope you've had a great week so far xoxo!

  37. I love the look of the pink top, flares, and the leopard heels. SO CUTE! I have never met a leopard print that I didn't love either! Great post!

  38. Look how young your boys were! I love that your favorite bachelor is your husband, and I need to catch up with your vacation planning. Time to get organized and get some trips on the books! Hope you had a wonderful Wednesday!

  39. You have great taste in TV. "This is Us" is currently my favorite show. Binged watch "Sons of Anarchy" back in '15 thanks to Netflix. "The Middle" and "The Goldbergs" are hilarious. And, finally, was really into "Homeland" until around season 3 then I fell off. My friends have insisted I should hop back on because it's getting good again. We shall see.

    You did good with the style remix. Really like the leopard pants.

  40. Those pants! Love!!!! All of your food looks so yummy!!! New build??? I'm behind on blog reading this week, did I miss something?!

  41. I think you look great and love the look but think it would look cleaner if the pants weren't cuffed....to me it would put emphasis on those gorgeous red shoes! JMO of course.

  42. I swear you know how to outdo outfits recreations! Such a stylish outfit and ref shoes always brings a pop of fierce especially with leopard pants. The soft pink colors look gorgeous on you. I adore the first outfit with the love sweater layered....where can I find the details or better yet can I visit your closet someday? lol

  43. I love this outfit recreation, Andrea! And all you pink outfits are fabulous!

  44. Love your recreation! The red shoes are just the perfect finishing touch, and I think I like your lace up version even better. I don't watch the Bachelor either! I seriously feel like the only one in the country, LOL.

  46. Perfect recreation! I absolutely love those shoes! :)

  47. I love this outfit! I actually prefer yours to the model's - I like the darker tones in your leopard print pants, and your shoes are more interesting with the laces. Fabulous!

  49. Love those leopard pants. Gosh, I've always wanted to be brave enough to pull them off. Kudos to you...fabulous!

  50. Umm, could you BE any cooler?! I think not! But actually my favorite outfit of this post is your color blocked sweater with the pink gingham shirt underneath. I want to wear that exact thing!

  51. You couldn't be any cuter if you tried, Andrea! Loving these looks! Also, how fun to reminisce about those shows your boys used to put on for you!! Love it!! Four trips planned -- how wonderful is that?!! I could really go for one of those paczkis right about now - Mmm!! Hooray for lots of fun and yum ahead of you!! xo - Brenda // ChattingOverChocolate.com

  52. I personally think you look better than the model!! I love re-creating looks that I love too...and this might be one of them for me! I love the mix of the red lace ups and leopard...could there be a better match?! You are so fierce and chic, and always my favorite :) Have a great weekend! XO

  62. Just loving this look Jill! Those pants are especially amazing - you styled them perfectly!

  63. Confession...I don't watch the Bachelor either. These days it hardly seems like there's time for any TV at all really. Unless I'm with my kids while they're watching something like My Little Pony or Daniel Tiger. But that doesn't really count, does it?

  64. You nailed this look! Love the leopard pants and pop of red. Gorgeous Andrea!!

    xx, Elise

  65. Fancy pants! You make me want to combine red and leopard. Off to see if I still have red pants in my closet somewhere!

  66. You look like a rock star in those pants! Great outfit.

  67. hot pants!!!!!! love them with the red shoes
    Also, I want ALL your pink sweaters!!! sooo pretty

  68. Love love love the leopard pants. What an amazing outfit from head to toe
