Enter: INSTAGRAM *angels singing, harps playing*. I became so inspired by all of these self-proclaimed "fashionistas", who were posting their daily outfits and frugal finds. Suddenly, my closet didn't look so lackluster! I saw my existing pieces in a whole new light...I began mixing what I already had, and purging what I just didn't need or didn't wear. Day after day, I was finding outfits that inspired me to use similar items in my closet. I took what I liked from the inspiring outfit (the "OUTFIT SKELETON", if you will), and adding to it my own personality in the form of jewelry, scarves, extra layers, shoes, etc.
So, sweet friends, I present to you an outfit skeleton to ponder! The way I have the outfit styled, I would wear it to church, dinner, or maybe a casual office setting. It could easily be tweaked by losing the jeans and adding a pencil skirt, or trading out the peep toe pumps for a more spicy set of caged sandals.
What would you change about the outfit to make it your own?
