Inside The Wardrobe: Admiring From Afar

Let's be honest. I spend loads of time on Pinterest. Most of the time, I automatically click the humour section so I can have a good laugh at e-cards and cats. But my second favourite thing to do is to click on the women's fashion section and play a little game that I like to call "admiring from afar".

Admiring from afar can be played by anyone at anytime. It's a fun and addicting game for all ages! Basically it's online window shopping for fabulous people with a less than fabulous budget. Or less than fabulous creativity when it come to styling. Or both!

I found this outfit here. After admiring from afar for a while, I realized I had a massive outfit crush on it. 

Outfit crush for a few reasons. 
1) I love high-waisted skirts but feel like whenever I style them I look like a pilgrim. 
2) Mint green. 
3) It looks so girly without being over the top. 

I obviously tweaked my "mint to be" outfit a bit. I don't particularly like those bauble necklaces (no offense if you do! They're cute but I'd probably never buy one...) so I added a simpler necklace so you can see the pink collar on the shirt.  And the original shoes for this were bright yellow heels. I opted for a comfier and more subtle alternative.

But if I could just rip all the clothes out of the screen and put them inside my wardrobe, I would!   

What is your "outfit crush"? Do they tend to be outfits out of your comfort zone or ones that you would put together yourself?

  1. oh man, I'm 100% with you on the necklace. but I think we're swimming against the grain here! (mixed metaphor?)

  2. Love this!!! and I'm definitely with you on the bobble necklace. I feel like they are too chunky--- and a little, i don't know, ehh. Not a fan.

  3. Super cute outfit ... I love the stripes with the that skirt ... I just realized I have a skirt like that ... blush pink and a stripe shirt ... totally wearing it!! Thanks for the inspiration!
