Make it my Own Mondays

Oh Pinterest.

Sometime last week Holly over at Running in Stilettos & I got to chatting about how we have pinned a million and one outfits (give or take a few) and it was time we actually started using them for inspiration instead of just letting those pins sit pretty on our respective boards.

So we decided to offer up a challenge of sorts to each other. Each week we are going to pick one outfit that one of us has pinned, recreate it at some point during the week, and then post our 'versions' on Mondays.

Just a fun little game to force us to wear things in ways we may not have normally thought of, remix our wardrobe a bit... and we figured we would share it with you all on here!

Without further ado, I present to you this past weeks' inspiration outfit:



And here's how I made it my own:
I went with a punchier color pallet, we had a really sunny weekend and it seemed more fitting! I made it my own with a striped pink button down, pink stone necklace & a purple belt.

Making it my own - week 1
The popped collar made me giggle when I was getting dressed
And the reason why I love these boots - they tie!

Gray Sweater: JCPenny's (old)
Pink Button Down: American Eagle
Skinny Jeans: Paige
Boots: Steve Madden
Necklace: Buckle
Belt: Old Navy

So, what do you think? Would you rock this look? I don't wear button downs under sweater's too often... honestly I feel like Ellen when I do, but this outfit was a lot more feminine! I actually really liked it, I think adding the belt made a huge difference too.


Don't forget to go see how Holly made it her own

Love it! This is a great idea. I always say I need to bring my computer into my closet with me in the mornings because I never remember what I pin!

Melanie said...

I think this is super cute! Love the idea of recreating a Pinterest find and sharing it. I look forward to your other recreations!

Great job! SEriously if Pinterest is good for anything it's fashion ideas!

Ashley said...

I am really bad about that too! I actually save photos to my iPhone and use them when I'm shopping. Sometimes it's hard to realize that you have all of the parts you need. Way to go on following through with your pins!

SO CUTE!!! I actually like the fun punch of color you did better than her more neutral options!

I love that idea! Some day you should make this a link up. I think I repinned that outfit after you - I love it.

What a fun game!

It looks super cute on you, but I'd be nervous about rocking it. I get used to wearing things a certain way =/

Stephanie said...

So cute! I could NEVER put that together! Love it though!! xo

Amanda said...

Yes, I would rock this look. Too bad I can't wear something like that to work. I need to start getting more adventurous in my outfits.
