Get That Look
Styled for Her by Me from Poshmark Closets.

Inspiration: How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM)

“Funny how sometimes you just, find things.”

SPOILER ALERT! If you are just now streaming HIMYM on Hulu and have not finished the series STOP READING! This Get That Look is inspired by THE mother! You have been warned! Everything written past the image below is SPOILERIFIC!

In the final season of HIMYM, we finally see how Ted meets the mother of his children. For a bit of a twist, the writers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas introduced the mother to us, the audience, and all of the other characters before introducing her to Ted. In the second to last episode, Barney and Robin have just gotten married and Ted leaves the wedding early to catch a train to take him to the airport but the train is running late. The bass guitar player from the wedding reception also has a train to catch at the same station and happens to be the girl that took Ted’s breath away from across the reception hall.

So as he would, Ted sees this as fate and introduces himself. They playfully argue over who the iconic yellow umbrella belongs to. It has to be Ted, his initials are carved into it, T.M., Ted Mosby…

no it has to be hers, T.M., Tracy McConnell.

And that boys and girls is how Ted met THE mother and inspired today’s Get That Look! In this scene – arguably the most important scene of the series – the mother, Tracy, is wearing a deep purple maroon sleeveless dress with a tan trench coat with t-strap heels, while holding a yellow umbrella, crossbody purse, and her guitar.

For Tracy’s dress, I found two dresses I like for this look! The first is from the closet @peace81 and is nearly identical to the one worn in this scene. It is available in a size S.

And the second dress is this beautiful Nine West purple dress with beading detail on the neckline from the closet @mollymattin. Available in a size 2. Ugh, I just love it so much!

I have paired either dress with these Baublebar purple gem stud earrings from the closet @dobregon12.

And this Old Navy trench coat from the closet @cvasquez is perfect to keep you warm while you wait for the train to come to Farhampton. Available in a size XS.

Let’s not forget the shoes! From the closet @jwilborn, I have chosen these t-strap Calvin Klien heels. Available in a size 6.

And for the final piece of the look, I have tied together the yellow from the umbrella and the guitar Tracy is carrying into the purse! From the closet @lovelacy, this Zara cross body purse is yellow with a guitar strap as the purse strap! How perfect!?

The complete look:
