The main places that I go online to look for inspiration is Instagram and Tumblr. I know so many people who talk about how they screen shot photos of outfits that people post (on instagram or tumblr) because they love the way that person paired certain pieces together. That is the best part of fashion. You get to sample all the best parts of an outfit that you see on different people and try to recreate it yourself. So, I just wanted to take you through my thought process of how someone else's outfit inspired my own outfit. This photo is of one of my favorite fashion bloggers Courtney Trop and her blog is alwaysjudging. I was scrolling through her Instagram feed and ran across this beautiful camel colored suit that she posted. I was like "gosh, that is such a pretty suit" but I know it is something I could probably not afford so I thought what in my closet could I use to recreate a similar look. I first thought, okay I have these tan colored pixiemarket pants that I could use (they no longer have them in that color but here is the grey version). I then thought okay simple she is wearing a white t-shirt underneath I definitely have one of those. Then I was thinking on which jacket I had and this Arrivals Jacket worked perfectly. I loved how she mixed green into her outfit from her bag so I added this little vintage purse I got that is a greenish/teal color. Lastly, I added my Everlane shoes which were my last thought and I was just going simple so I just stuck with the camel/tan combo I had going on. Everyone gets inspiration from other people. It is super fun to use someone else's outfit to inspire your own because no matter how much you try to "copy" that outfit it will never look the same on any one person.
