For this Tuesday morning I have something out of the ordinary for you, a fashion post. Over the past 6 months I have been throwing one of these in every once in a while and it has made for a fun change of pace. Today I teamed up with Becky, Meghan and Whitney to talk about recreating outfits.
It doesn’t matter if you see it on TV, a magazine, a blog, or your best friend. Odds are at some point in life you’ve probably seen an outfit, loved it, and wondered how you could recreate it, right? That is exactly what we did for you today. We swapped partners and chose one outfit of theirs to recreate.
I picked Meghan…
I love Meghan and her sense of practical, simple, & elegant style. Every single time she shares an outfit I find myself thinking, “I would wear that!”. She has quite a few fashion posts which left me with LOTS of options to pick from. While I was searching through her posts (getting all kinds of inspired), this was the outfit that caught my eye.
I knew that I had everything in my closet to recreate this look. A look that I can totally see myself frequently wearing in the coming spring months.
The base of this outfit is my striped swing dress from Old Navy. I picked this dress up for $10 a couple of weeks ago and it is perfect. Just barely long enough, even in a tall length 🙄 , but it works. I was a bit worried about pairing the dark blue dress with the black converse but I told myself not to worry about it and decided to go for it anyways.
I added my favorite bracelets, (I really need to grab some more bracelets) layered with the vest, (y’all know how much I love this vest) and put my hair in a fishtail braid to mix things up a bit. Normal braids always fall out of my hair within an hour. Fish tail braids usually last around 2 😛 .
Cute, comfy, and striped. 3 of my favorite things when it comes to getting dressed.
To show versatile a dress and sneakers can be, I swapped my vest for a denim jacket and a scarf and created a whole new look in seconds.
3 Tips for recreating outfits:
#1 Be realistic. Look for outfits that you already own some of the pieces to.
#2 Know the why. What about the outfit sparked your interest?
#3 You don’t need exact pieces. You can successfully recreate an outfit simply based on replicating shape or color.
Where do you find your outfit inspiration?
