Today's Everyday Fashion: Save the Date


Use what you got. That's my totally improper way of 'splaining that while my pink skirt may not be an exact match to the inspiration photo's neon jeans, sometimes it's okay to use what you already have. Take the same basic idea - a neon bottom with a white top and neon necklace - and run with it, even if it's not an exact match. (Note: this is not a work look, my skirt is way too short.) Is this an outfit you would try?

  12. Love the neon necklaces! I love that you just used what you had instead of doing an exact match. I always wondered if you go out and buy items for your copy cat looks...

  13. Yes I would try this outfit.  I also cannot do an exact match but I do similar colors.  I am doing your leopard printed skirt and blue top today.

  14. I love this outfit-both yours and hers.  I actually used this image as inspiration for an outfit on my blog ( http://abbyisalldolledup.wordpress.com/2012/07/03/day-to-night/ ) and also used it as my submission to guest blog for you!  It's a great one and I love your pink skirt!

  16. Ive been looking for a way to replicate this outfit!!!

  17. I like the inspiration picture better for the only reason that I'm more into skinnies than pencil skirts. But the color combination is killer, I like the way you interpreted the look. It feels very summer-chic with the white blazer. Great outfit overall. But I couldn't recreate the look because I don't have a white pant or blazer and I don't own anything neon ;-)

  19. LOVE the pairing of the neons! I have a yellow bubble necklace that I haven't worn yet and this post definitely gives me some ideas!

  20. I love the yellow necklace.  I ordered one off of ebay and just got it in the mail a few days ago.  I can't wait to wear it.  Great outfit.  I am digging the shoes and white blazer.

  21. i love the idea of using what you already have. i think i'm going to challenge myself to not really buy many new things for winter & just use what's in my cluttered closet!

  22. Love you white blazer. I recently purchased one for $35. It was on sale. I have yet to wear it but fell in love with it. I love wearing blazers. Oh and by the way I recreated an outfit you had. You were wearing black shorts with a black button top. I wore black shorts, with a white button shirt and black patent heels. Thanks for the inspiration.

  23. I like the idea of trying to use what you have. I'm very guilty of "I have nothing to wear" syndrome! I haven't gotten into the neon trend this summer, but it looks great on you.

  24. I love the outfit--I have held off on "statement" necklaces because I was too scared to know what to wear them with...This is a simple solution :).
    Thanks!

  26. These colors just go so well together! So fresh and clean!

  27. Love this look! Works so well together. Pinterest and blogs like this have made me realise I need to go through the clothes I already have and create new outfits!

  28. loving the ideas for pops of color! i am so glad i discovered your site on pinterest!

    Can't wait to see some colored denim ideas for fall! :)

  29. Hi J! Just out of curiosity, I remember you have a pair of pink jeans. How come you didn't wear those? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Those jeans would definitely work in this outfit, but they aren't nearly as neon/glowing as my skirt! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Love it! That's totally what I'm trying to do with this blog - make new with what you already have. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. No, I definitely don't buy the items to copy looks! I will start to notice a trend in my photos I save - such as saving 10 photos with emerald green jeans, so then I go out and buy them. But I never copy one picture by buying something. 

    ReplyDelete
  33. While I'm not totally into neon, I do love the neutrals in this outfit! I would never have thought to wear a white blazer over a white shirt but it looks really chic.

  34. cute idea! nice combination! <3

  36. Love this. I will be wearing my neons into the fall. Hope you style some neon pieces in the fall as well.

  37. Thanks for the inspiration!  I just bought a yellow necklace and was able to put this outfit together with a top and bottom from my closet.  I got so many compliments today!

  38. This might be one of my favorite outfits I've ever seen you put together!
