Pin It, Wear It

Today we’re going to play Pin It, Wear It. This is where we take some kind of fashion inspiration photo we’ve had on a Pinterest board and figure out how we can recreate that with clothes we already have. Got it? If you want to play along, leave me a comment and let me know what you came up with!

First up, the pin!

I have had this on my ‘fashion inspiration‘ board for awhile. I think I was drawn to the colors first, I love these two bold jewel tones together, and then I liked the shape of it all next. The slouchy, flowy vibe but you can still see her body. The lines just work.

Here’s my interpretation!

I knew I had the right green pants! These are Vogue 9302 and I made them out of some vintage twill a few years ago. I did not have quite the same color pink in a sweater as my inspiration, but this rosy color sweater that I was gifted actually suits me better I think and plays with the green in the same way. I added boots (because it’s winter here) and a half tuck to make sure my waist didn’t get lost.

I feel like the vibe is pretty close and I don’t know that I would have paired these colors together without the Pin to go off of! How do you think I did?

Sustainable Fashion Haul/// My Well Loved Clothing Frock Box

A few weeks ago I found Adey’s youtube channel Well Loved Clothing and I binged all her videos. She is a thrifter that has an amazing eye and styles up her finds in unique ways. She also sells pieces and refashioned items in her shop.

I love her attitude about fashion and the joy she finds in getting dressed! When she posted that she would be selling Frock Boxes I knew I wanted to give it a try. I bought a box and then she sent me an in-depth questionnaire about sizing, pieces I was looking for, inspiration, and things I absolutely did not want. Then she went thrifting for me! In a couple of weeks I had a box full of 4 unique items that fit really well into my closet.

I have an unboxing video here and I thought I would share how I’m styling everything up this week on instagram as well.

First is this teal, oversized, cropped sweater that I think looks great with high waisted pants and skirts and I love it layered over my Kielo Wrap dress. I feel like your funky art teacher!

I told Adey I loved skirts and she did not disappoint in finding me this midi animal print skirt. I will absolutely wear this with t-shirts and sweatshirts and I love it with this thrifted Madewell sweater. I’m trying to figure out how to layer up and stay warm but still wear the silhouettes I love, I think this skirt makes that possible.

I’ve been having zero luck thrifting pants so I was nervous when I pulled out these pink cropped trousers! They fit perfectly though and I love the color. I will wear these all the time and I thought this sweater I rented from Nuuly worked perfectly with these pants.

My final piece might be the most basic, but it’s honestly something I will get the most wear out of. This mock turtle neck in the softest ribknit in a great color is a fantastic piece for layering. I love that it is sleeveless, I think it will be easier to wear under dresses this way, and I love the 70s vibe I get when I pair it with my high waisted jeans.

I was so impressed with this box! I love when people are creative with their business and offer something new to the world. If you love the idea of wearing second hand but have trouble finding the time or energy to shop yourself, check out Well Loved Clothing online!
