This past weekend was one of those weekends I actually felt like getting dressed. [Okay, that's half a lie. It's mostly because the outfits I pin are either really plain, or dressy...]
Friday's outfit was pinspired by an "interview outfit," but I don't know if my rendition would be so appropriate. Then again, the last time I had an official interview was... a long time ago.
I originally planned on wearing my orange pumps/clutch, but it was too bright. Had to bring down the brightness of the button-down with these terribly uncomfortable shoes.
-skirt from Forever21 for like $8 [get it now!]
-mint blouse from Target clearance for $14 [similar]
-shoes from JustFab BOGO, $20 [similar]
-clutch from NY&C, no more than $10 [similar]
I do really love the outfit, but I'm beyond confused on where to wear it in the future when I don't have a Pinterest challenge to blame. If you're in a workplace that isn't fancy or super casual, I feel like this would be good for you!
Also, normally stripes make me feel a little wide, but this one hides my "pouch" that I hate so much more than the next one.. and both make my booty look fantastic. [My legs, on the other hand, need a serious tan and good workout.]
I used to get all of my purses and clutches at NY&C on sale or clearance... until I moved here. The sale and accessories sections suck at my mall.
Saturday's outfit came from a pin I used to worry would never be recreated. Though it's not dead-on, it's totally pinspired, and I love it!
-off the shoulder tee from Papaya for $8
-LC Lauren Conrad jacket for $25 at Kohls
-shoes from Target $20
-earrings from Body Central $1
I really hate long sleeves. The jacket doesn't stay on forever, which makes me wish I would have thrown on some necklaces, but I thought my earrings would be enough. Must. Learn. to Accessorize.
The skirt isn't sequins, which makes it a little more comfortable, but it definitely shows all the flaws or lines from shirts being tucked in. Underwear's gotta be optional with this baby.
Mint colored feather earrings and a simple french braid back completed [or so I originally thought] everything.
Neither outfit is perfectly like the original, but keep in mind the reason I do this is to show you don't have to go shopping or have every identical piece in your closet to get your "dream closet" on Pinterest. [I need to make sure I write this down and tape it to my credit card come Friday.]
PS: Any suggestions are welcome, as usual! Thanks for voting for which shoes I shoulda worn with the last skirt! Big help for next time!
