My favorite place to find outfit ideas are bloggers because they are real people with real jobs living in a real world. Magazines and clothing ads are nice, but often aren’t so easy to recreate. But a blogger? I can recreate that. And many bloggers include links where you can either get the item or one similar to it. Perfect.
So I decided to create a board on Pinterest called Blogspiration. In an effort to get more creative with my outfits I’m challenging myself to recreate and post Blogspiration outfits. I thought it only made sense to make the very first Blogspiration post the very first outfit that inspired the whole idea. Meet Lindsey from Thrift & Shout.
Pants: Loft, cobalt.
Cardigan: Loft, striped.
Top: Unknown, white sheer.
Shoes: Steve Madden, yellow.
Jewels: Necklace, borrowed. Bracelet, Stella & Dot. Bracelet, borrowed.
When I saw Lindsey’s outfit I was shocked. I pretty much have all those pieces! And I had just been thinking of how I could wear this cardigan. I’d only been wearing it with basic black or jeans so when I saw Lindsey pair her incredibly similar sweater with cobalt, I knew I had to do the same.
Huge thanks to my awesome photographer and bestie, Becky, aka “the friend.” I enlisted her help to take a ton of pictures one weekend so you’ll be seeing more of her work. She also was kind enough to bring over tons of accessories so we’d have lots of options. I wish we had thought to take a photograph of our little setup. We felt very Rachel Zoe and kept yelling at each other like they do on the show. So sad we don’t have a photo but we do have this random shot.
We definitely had a lot of fun with our photoshoot and we plan on doing it again… well at least I do. Hopefully she does too. One last photo for you all because if there is an unattended motorcycle you have to pose with it. (expect to see this motorcycle in a few more posts! I was obsessed with it)
What has inspired you lately?
Thank you to the gorgeous Lindsey for her permission to use her photo!
