As I mentioned couple of days ago, I am posting another outfit to show you how I interpret outfits that inspire me. I kept this one very close to the original from Style Pantry blog, though I used a different style of skirt. I would love to have this gorgeous yellow number but one cannot (or should not) have everything. Where it the fun in that? I loved the combination of colours in this outfit and sure enough had similar ones in my closet. I wore instead a midi full skirt but stayed true to the colours that first caught my eye. I would also love to have this gorgeous hair...but some things are just impossible. 
Let me know if you like these types of posts and I will try to do them more often. 
And as you are reading these lines, I am somewhere on the beach in Mexico, enjoying the sun and the ocean. I will be back and in full swing by mid of next week. Until then, happy vacation to me! Ciao!

How To Translate Outfit Inspo Into Your Style

Fashion bloggers are considered (by many) to be a connection between the fashion runways and regular people. They are considered to translate current trends into a style that is more accessible and easier to understand to an everyday person. They may be an old news and source inspiration to many women and men out there, but there are also many people who are just getting around to following bloggers and using them as source of inspiration for what to wear. One comment that I often hear is that it’s hard to keep up with a blogger and buy everything they wear. Cost adds up very quickly. But one thing I love about my favorite fashion bloggers is the ability to re-mix their wardrobe time and time again, and not just show off new items. I personally get inspired by many things when it comes to putting together an outfit: from other bloggers, magazines, house and decorating magazines, or just some random pictures, things I see on the street, architecture or nature. Inspiration does not mean you copy an exact look. It is supposed to give you an idea about how to work with what you have in your closet and make a similar outfit. For me, sometimes, an outfit that I see on another blogger may inspire me for its exact items of clothing, but other times, it may be just the combination of colors in the outfit, mix of prints, idea of mixing specific pieces of clothing together, that maybe I had not thought about. Some of my favorite bloggers are very tall, and yet I am not. Some have a very different body shape than me so I cannot copy their outfit completely. I have to always keep in mind my body shape, skin colour, hair colour, life style, etc to ensure I am comfortable in what I am wearing. If it does not suit my body, I will not be able to carry it out. The outfit may be wearing me or I may look very uncomfortable in it.
So this week, I thought I would give you couple of examples of outfits that inspired me and how I translated them into my style and used existing pieces in my wardrobe to create them.
Today’s outfit inspiration is from a picture of a partial outfit I saw on Instagram from a very famous blogger Sincerely, Jules. What I loved about it is the idea embroidered clutch and white pheasant top.   I also loved the idea of that world traveler style mixed with my favorite summer item, cut-off denim shorts. I did not want to go searching for a similar shirt, when I already owned a dress that had the same feel to it. You may have already seen me wear it in this SashaDoll Fashion Closet post. So I just added a little boho style belt to cinch in the waist and shorten the length of the dress, and voila, a shirt. I also already own an embroidered bag, which I used before as a clutch as well. I just fold it in half and tuck the handles inside. And  , who doesn't own a pair of denim shorts, right?

So below is a picture of my inspiration and the outfit I created from it. Hopefully, for those of you who find it hard to translate outfits of your favorite bloggers into what fits you best, this little article will help. I will have one more post this week to show you a different way to interpreting an inspiration. Ciao!

Another Way to Style a Floral Kimono

Kimono Urban Behavior, heels Asos, jeans Zara, tank top Forever 21, bag Steve Madden (Winners), earrings Aldo (old), watch Michael Kors, bracelets Alex&Ani, rings (left hand) Forever 21, (right hand) thumb H&M and forefinger Old Navy, bracelet Forever 21

I can’t seem to get enough of this floral kimono. I want to wear it day in and day out. You don’t have to wear your kimono in a bohemian style if that is not you. It can be worn many different ways. It’s up to you what you pair it with. Treat is as a cardigan for a casual look or a dressy jacket if you are going for something more glam. Today, I’m somewhere in between. And let me end this last post of the week with a question. What are your plans for the weekend? Anyone has a vacation coming up? I just might sneak one in next week. But we’ll see. Ciao!

Nikako da se zasitim ovog cvetnog kimona. Mogla bih ga nositi svaki dan. Ne morate nositi kimono u boho stilu. Vrlo je raznovrsan i mozete ga tretirati kao lagani cardigan za casual varijantu, ili kao jaknicu za neku vise sredjenu priliku. Ja danas sam probrala outfit koji mesa sve ove stilove po malo. Dozvolite mi da zavrsim poslednji post ove sedmice sa jednim pitanjem. Sta planirate za nastupajuci vikend? Da li je nekome neko putovanje u planu? Meni ce se mozdra ostvariti jedan mali odmor sledece sedmice, ali otom po tom. Cao!
