I found this outfit above on Pinterest awhile back and fell in love with it! I even posted it to Facebook and proclaimed my love for it!
It wasn't until weeks later that I realized I had some items in my closet to recreate a very similar look!
|Please excuse the unmade bed and the big black hot-flash fan!|
I actually have two of these white cotton shirts. They are from Victoria Secrets online store. I bought the one above in a size Medium and it's a little too tight in the bust area but I decided to keep it for when I lost weight and I bought another one in size Large. I had the large one on earlier in the day but spilled salad dressing on it so I had to put the medium one on, which is still to tight in the bust even though I've lost weight. It was just a tad too snug so I decided to put a lace camisole on under it.
The skirt I bought awhile back at Express. The skirt in the inspiration photo is higher waisted which would be better with the belt but since I already had this I decided to make it work!
I also had the brown belt, shoes, and handbag! Forgot to put the handbag in the photo though!
When I had the larger shirt on without the camisole I wore a very similar necklace as you see in the inspiration photo! It looked a little too busy with the lacy camisole though.
I can't believe it took me weeks to realize I already had everything I needed in my closet to recreate this look I loved!
I love finding ways to mix and match my clothes! Sometimes it just takes a little creativity and sometime it just takes some outside inspiration!
