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?

What I Wore: Cozy Neutrals

I don’t know if it’s all the planning for the all-neutral master bedroom that I’m doing right now, but I have been loving (and apparently living) the neutrals lately. As evidenced by this outfit. And you get indoor photos because it was not even 30 degrees when I took these yesterday and I don’t have that much dedication to style posts. 😉 This Aztec sweater has been my jam this winter. It is the coziest thing, perfect for curling up in. And the cream & black color scheme goes with pretty much everything. This look has been one of my […]

What I Wore: Black Floral Skirt

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably heard me gush about my recent sewing classes at StitchLab (if you are in Austin, check them out). And with good reason, because through them I now know how to make a skirt. In fact, I made the skirt in this outfit post!! Lace trim and all, completely done by me. I am PUMPED about this new skill. I’ve already made another skirt (at home – unsupervised!) and have fabric to make a few more. It’s going to be a skirt craze over here for awhile. 😀 Luckily the weather has warmed […]

What I Wore: Neutral Play

This is what I wore most of yesterday. I liked the play of different textures and neutral tones, and I like how these pictures turned out. I do not like the fact that about 3 hours after I took these, I was being plagued by a sort throat, increasingly stuffy head, and all the signs of impending sickdom. The lace shirt and sash and necklace got traded out for an old comfy sweatshirt. Much tea and Airborne were drunk. To no avail. Today I am in the full grip of the first cold of the winter, and I’m not liking […]

Friday Favorites: Tribal Prints

Remember how I used to not like mustard yellow, or corduroy, or ballet flats? This is another thing that falls under the category ‘never thought I’d like and now I totally do’. Tribal-inspired prints are everywhere this fall, and I’m loving it. So I rounded up a few of my favorites from the online shopping world to share with you folks. Clearly I like the black-and-white or more subdued color schemes with this kind of print (there were plenty of neon and color-clashy-eye-hurty options out there, if that’s your thing). I’m particularly eyeing the cardigan and jacket. Going Tribal by […]

What I Wore: Olive & Stripes

What? A new actual outfit post?! Try not to be too shocked, even though I haven’t done one of these in a few weeks. I just wasn’t feeling it for awhile, but now I’m back! So, down to business. I have been on a serious olive kick lately (the color, not the food – though I do like eating olives, too). And it’s mostly because of these pants. Guys, I am in love with these pants. And they’re corduroy. I used to hate corduroy when I was younger (just ask my mom). But they fit great, are warm and comfy, […]

What I Wore: Pleated Floral

If you’re in search of fall outfit inspiration, you’re in the wrong place. Clearly we’re still in the grip of summer weather here. Or at least we were this past weekend, when I took these shots. For all I know Austin experienced a cooling spell as soon as I left. And it will probably still be near 90 when I return. I love this skirt. It’s easy to wear, since you can just pick any tone out of the floral print (which is itself a great color palette) and use that on top. And the pleats give it a nice […]
