Daily Threads: Inspired

similar top, similar shorts, similar shoes
jewelry: kohl's, vintage, francesca's, my etsy shop




The other day I came across this pin and knew I would be re-creating that look - and soon! VoilĂ , there it is! However, there are a few differences: a.) her starfish necklace is way more fabulous than my not-so-starfish-necklaces, b.) she's tan and I'm lily white, and c.) her shirt is longer than mine, she has a huge, striped bag, and her shorts are a bit shorter (and more fitting) than mine. So just a few differences, but you get the idea. It was an inspired look. I was personally just in love with the color combination of cream, coral, and gold - so pretty and summery.

It was fun to get inspired from a new look and re-created the best I can. I'm going to have to do this more often. Thank God for Pinterest... where my possibilities are endless! (it kind of rhymed, did you catch that?)

Also, if you want to do some online shopping, Shop Dwelling and Telling!

Coral shorts?? Yes please!! And I love the color combo, too. Cream is the perfect base color for any summery outfit.

Liz said...

I love seeing pinterest inspired outfits and this one is great! I can almost feel the warm weather from my computer screen {maybe that's more wishing on my part}!

Melissa said...

Ooooh, SO gorgeous! So very fancy, casual Saturday. Love it! The color combo, the shorts and heels with a dressed up top - you look fabulous!

I'm kind of sad that you get to wear a gorgeous summery outfit and i'm stuck in the rain. wah.

Your legs are amazing. They look perfect in these shorts!

Awesome re-creation! I love those shorts. I think shorts were pretty much invented for legs like yours. =)

Cara-Mia said...

Love this! I've been seeing lots of red pants & shorts in the blogosphere and am loving it. Like the Volcom shorts you linked to. I have some navy blue Volcom shorts that I bought years ago, but they are nice. So I may purchase another pair...

okay, so i love how you can wear shorts with heels and it looks classy! like you could totally pop into an office somewhere and just conduct a meeting. if i did this i would be a trashy mess!

Danielle said...

i thought you were Whitney Port in the first picture(and thats not bad lol!)

Kate said...

I love that you describe yourself as being lily white - it sounds so elegant! I am always saying I'm pasty & ghostly, but lily white just sounds so much better! And this outfit is adorable!! You are so tiny! I love that top with the necklaces, and the clutch is gorg!

Pixie in Pumps said...

I LOVE this look! I might have a look inspired by your inspired look! haha... because I am definitely inspired! And if we all stand next to each other it'll be like an ombre of skin color... ha.
