What I Wore: White Pants Copycat

compare

That’s me being a copycat on the left, and my inspiration on the left (original pin here). As part of my second Pinterest Challenge, I picked two outfits that I wanted to try my hand at recreating, and this is the first one I’ve tackled. I had pretty much the exact pieces needed for this recreation: olive v-neck, white skinnies (though mine are cords), and brown boots. There’s even a rare appearance of my hair down and not in an updo of some sort! I know. I’m just going crazy over here. I will say, I think it was a LOT windier for my photo shoot than my inspiration’s. Every other picture I took had me making a face because of hair blowing in my eye or mouth. The trials of a style blogger. 🙂 Anyway, I think this copycat was pretty spot-on, and it was comfortable, so yay all around.

In other news, I think I can safely say my back is back to 100%. After our couples massage this past weekend, the remaining stiffness is gone, which is awesome. I can move like normal again! Also, I made leggings in my sewing class last night and those need to make an appearance on the blog soon.

What do you think of this outfit? Do you do Pinterest copycats?

    1. Thank you! I think so, too, which is probably why I was drawn to it to copycat. 🙂

      Yes! Leggings! The class last night was Know Your Knits so it was all about how to handle sewing knits/materials with stretch. Mine aren’t a perfect sew-job by any means, but they are wearable leggings and fit surprisingly well.

  1. Thanks for stopping by! You must be a print-lover like me. I love that you have a pit bull mix. My Gaby is a pit bull or mix. We love her to pieces! I love the white with olive green. Olive green is another color I tend to gravitate towards …

    1. Thanks for stopping by in return! 🙂 Yes, I like a good print, too. And am also gravitating towards olive green lately (obviously…).

  2. Ooooh, it’s so rare to see you with your hair down. It looks gorgeous!
    I love your take on this outfit. I’m so impressed with the fact that you sewed leggings! I’m hoping to learn how to use my sewing machine this year, and I’d love to be able to make my own leggings eventually.

    1. Aw, thank you! It’s so rare because it rarely behaves this well when down – it tends to flatness and not-straight-but-not-wave/curly.

      You have reminded me that I need to do an outfit post with my leggings – thanks!
