Get That Look
Styled for Her by Me from Poshmark Closets.
Inspiration: Home Alone 2
There are just some things in life we can’t live without – to me one of those things the holidays and an afternoon of watching Home Alone after playing out in the snow! I was born in 1991 so I grew up watching these movies every year and while I shamefully admit Home Alone 3 is my favorite, I think Home Alone 2 is the best out of the three movies (yeah, that’s right i’m not even going to acknowledge that they made more versions after 3).
If you don’t know the story of Home Alone
that’s just sad and kinda weird the story basically goes like this: parents and family leave for vacation out of state, they forget Kevin at home, Kevin ends up having to defend his entire mansion house from two bad guys trying to break in and rob the place and leave the faucets running too, cause you know they are the Wet Bandits. In Home Alone 2, Kevin’s family once again is going on vacation. This time they make sure Kevin is with them in the car and at the airport but not on the plane to France… Kevin boards a plane that is going to New York on accident, whoops! There he uses his father’s credit card to stay at the Plaza Hotel and ends up running into none other than the Wet Bandits. This of course ends up in them trying to catch him because he is why they went to jail. Long story short, Kevin goes through heck but eventually is reunited with his mom and the renamed Sticky Bandits get carted off to jail once again.
On to today’s Get That Look! Today’s look has been inspired by Kevin. The poor boy has been through so much and definitely deserves some attention (and lots and lots of therapy)! While Lost in New York, Kevin is wearing a green and tan winter coat, a blue sweater over a red plaid shirt, khakis, black tennis shoes, a knit hat, and of course we can’t forget his dad’s tan backpack!
I looked and looked and looked on Poshmark for a coat as similar to his as I could find and I ended up choosing this green Betsy Johnson parka from the closet @november_nikki. This coat will keep you Incredibly warm while you run around New York and it is available in a size 2.
Under his coat, Kevin wore a blue sweater like this Calvin Klein one from the closet @loveandother layered on top of a red plaid shirt like this J. Crew button down from the closet @suziestyle16. Both are available in a size S.
Don’t forget your knit pompom hat! You can get one similar to Kevin’s from the closet @stefanieandbetty.
And of course we also need out backpack to carry our recorder in and anything else that may come in handy to defend ourselves against the Wet Bandits. This backpack works perfectly for this look and is available from the closet @sweet_p01.
For the bottom half of this look, I have chosen these American Eagle khaki pants from the closet @anasnova, available in a size 2, and these black sneakers from the closet @edysdiscounts, available in a size 5.5.

P.s. If you haven’t seen this movie, don’t be too worried, Kevin did get to enjoy his days in New York riding in a limo eating pizza and drinking Coca-Cola out a champagne glass in the midst of being lost and chased by bad guys.
