What comes with my love for fashion, is my obsession with fashion platforms. Instagram, fashion blogs, tumblr – they all are perfect outlets to find those fashion friendly looks. There is one platform, however, that I love beyond all of them, and that is Pinterest. If you are a social media lover, like me, you probably know about it, or have one yourself. The best part about Pinterest, is how many different categories are featured. I love to sift through fashion boards, clothing boards, accessory boards – you name it, I love it.
When I find a cute look on Pinterest, I try to replicate it as best as I can, by myself. I use my own clothing, or I go out and get something similar. What I have actually started to do, is if I am contemplating buying a new piece of clothing, I search it on Pinterest first, so I can see what I could wear it with. That way, I know if I will actually wear it…because I will have motivation to recreate an outfit. So that’s what I’m going to highlight today – one of the looks, that I have recreated (not exact) using an inspiration from Pinterest. A “Pinspiration”, you may say…
This is the first shot I saw of this look, and the photo that inspired the recreation. I love how simply put together it is. My favourite part is the pop of colour that the pink shoes give. They really tie the whole look together and keep it looking fresh!
I put a little bit of a different spin on my recreation of this look. The skirt is the same, purchased from Modcloth. The chambray, I picked up from Target (always a great place for staple items). I think the stripes and chambray compliment each other overall, very well. I decided against pairing this look with a statement necklace. Instead, I chose a thick, gold costume chain from Icing. I think it’s subtle enough, but still gives the sparkle that the look needed. Although I loved the pop of colour in the heels, I thought that the look I put together worked better with neutral flats in black. These flats are from mark. by Avon and they are truly amazing – pretty much my go-to black flats. Great for work, social outings, or a casual day.
It’s always good to have inspiration when putting looks together. Sometimes, I get stumped on what I should wear (especially when you have so many options). When in doubt, go online – there is a never ending supply of looks to replicate and make your own! I will never get tired of the many fashion boards, blogs and website that are dedicated to style.
As long as you look and feel good, why not shake things up and put things together as you please? Nothing wrong with experimenting!
