Back to back on group stylized posts? I'm not mad about it. I am really excited to get into styling some new outfits for you now that the weather is warming up because I feel like it gives me a lot more room for variety. And this inspiration photo was the perfect one to get us all in the mood for the season change with the blossoms overtaking her photo. In case you need a refresher, this is how it works. All of us were given the same “inspiration outfit” and we were asked to create our own take on it once we let our creative juices flow. Any outfit can be inspired by the colors, the patterns, the pieces, or the textures is fine. So our how we wore it is coming from the inspiration side – with things we already have! Because not many people have the luxury to just go buy a new outfit based on what they see on Pinterest, so you have to work with what you have. First up is the look we used for our inspiration.
Alright. So confession time. I had the most perfect outfit planned out – at least I thought it was perfect. I had a long cobalt jacket like hers, a tourquoise top to get the two tone feel, black skinnies, and some cute fringe booties. And I even wore my new Firmoo sunglasses to show you all this awesome pair I snagged. I got the photos, they looked great, stuck the memory card in my pocket, headed home. After I got home I had to rush rush rush to the gym and when I finally got home that night – my memory card was MISSING! I cannot find it anywhere. And since I didn’t have time to snag a new card and retake photos, I am winging this one today. Luckily for me, when I originally picked out this Chic Street Style photo I like it because it looked like a top I already had – I thought, “I love that top, I bet it would be fun to recreate something with those colors separately.” Obviously I ended up following her style and not her color pattern with what I had planned… but since I lost those photos I was able to pull out something from the archives to share with you that went right along with the inspiration photo. Also, this is a tale to tell you that blogging isn’t always easy and great and you just have to roll with it. Here is my archived take on this look.
Top: Pink Blush
My thoughts when putting together this outfit was to let the top be the focal point. With the bright colors and the pattern, I didn’t want to take away from it with a lot of other details. You can see the top already had all the details you could dream of. Two bright colors, a fun pattern, and lace detailing. Sold. So I kept it simple and paired the top with a pair of skinnies and booties. Most of the time I don’t cuff my skinnies, but for this look I did. I wanted to add one last simple texture and contrast to the look. How do you think you would rock the pink and red combo?
