Look of the Day: Color Swapping

I saw this outfit on J's Everyday Fashion (one of my favorite fashion bloggers) and I thought this outfit was so adorable -- except for the fact that I really don't own much red. Then I realized I could create my own version in blue -- which I think turned out to be a pretty cute outfit for hot summer days. 
And that's what I love about fashion so much -- all it takes is a little inspiration, and your imagination can take you in a completely different direction!

Photo Inspiration - J's Everyday Fashion
My Outfit Details
Ruffled Tank - Loft (last summer)
White Linen Shorts - Old Navy (in stores now)
Necklace - J. Crew (available online)
Purse - Coach (a few years old)
Platform Sandals - Marc Fischer

Does your inspiration photos ever lead you in completely different directions?

  3. I'm not that creative so I generally end up copying inspiration photos pretty closely, but I love your take on J's outfit! Fabulous!

    1. Thank you! And can you believe I really own nothing red? And pretty much have a million things in blue! I guess we all stick to what we like!

  10. I love how you've mixed of J's look (LOVE that blog!) with your own color variation. The blue shirt paired with that necklace works amazingly, and literally conveys the exact same vibe as her red necklace with her red shirt.

    I even like your shoes more! What a gorgeous color of leather. I am SO happy I found this blog! Such great idea s- and I love how you really put thought into what you post. Means a lot, and makes it much more enjoyable to read.

    Hope you're on bloglovin.
