Style It Like Urban Outfitters

So this is me, trying my best to style an outfit in an 'Urban Outfitters' way without wearing any Urban Outfitters clothes..
I've got plenty... cause I LOVE the place, but I thought I'd give it a go without wearing any of their stuff just because, well..I guess I like a challenge.
Some outfits just scream Urban Outfitters and some just don't.. no matter where the clothing is actually from. And lets be honest now.. It can't just be me that wanders around their stores in awe of everything from their candles to their books and from their jeans to their on point Visual Merchandising. If you're looking for a bit of style inspo.. it's the place to go really, isn't it?
I wanted to do this post to enter into Claire's competition which you can check out here. (And have a read of the rest of her blog whilst you're at it.. I'm pretty sure you'll approve.) I found myself running out of time to do it however as I literally raced against the sunset to get these photo's! This week hasn't been a normal week y'see. I've been on a carpentry course outside of Birmingham so it's been taking me a decent while to get there and back every day. Knowing that this evening was my only chance (Tomorrow's going to rain appaz?) I stumbled through my front door, across many piles of clothes (creating more as I selected various garments from my floordrobe) and threw everything on. No time for make-up re-application. No time to wash my birds nest hair. And so, as you can imagine.. this isn't exactly my favorite set of photo's ever to grace the internet. 
But. 
I braved it.
Because One: who wouldn't love to mingle amongst other bloggers and UO fans at their Leicester store opening and be one of the first to see it?
and Two : Because sometimes - I have horrendous hair and face cause I've been building walls all day.

So the question was : what would you wear to their after party?
My Answer was as follows:
 I tried to replicate their effortless style by not going over the top on colour or accessories. I chose a classic pair of mom jeans ( very UO, am I right?) A plain black bralet (to add the 'party' into the outfit) and a casual burgundy bomber to tie the whole thing together. I feel like this outfit could be taken from day to night pretty easily by just taking the jacket off.. and the heels I chose to wear are super comfy - so - good for the day, but also add a little extra to the outfit without making me look like a try- hard. (I hope)
I feel like UO style is so cool ( I know that's a rubbishy word to use but... they just epitomize it. soz) that an after party outfit wouldn't need to be 'glam' or 'showy'. They make their statement by their chilled approach to fashion. I guess it's like 'bed - head' fashion. You look like you haven't made an effort but you totally have because how else could you look so awesome. Am I getting this across properly? Perhaps not..
 Topshop Bralet, Mom Jeans & Boots, JuJu's Jacket, H&M Belt

So what do you think of my attempt?
If you fancy your chances, the competition's open till midnight so definitely go for it! (and link me to it as well, I'd love to see!)
