Hi friends! Welcome back! Jason and I just got back from a family vacation which means summer is officially over for me and I can focus all of my energy into creating fall looks! I always thought I was someone who was decent at multitasking but this summer made me realize that...that couldn't be further from the truth. This year consisted of planning a wedding, getting married, being in my best friend's wedding in another state, going on a honeymoon, and then a family vacation right after that. Needless to say I have had very little brain power to give to anything else in my life. Don't get me wrong, it has all been amazing and my wedding day was the absolute best day of my life, but I am definitely ready to fully dive back into my blogging journey. I have soo many ideas for fall outfits swirling in my head and I'm glad I can finally take the time to execute them.

This outfit is a special one because the main attraction is a vintage piece that belonged to Jason's grandfather. I was gifted this beautiful blazer by Jason's family. I couldn't even tell you how many years old it is, but the quality is still incredible and the oversized-ness is perfection. By now, you guys know that oversized blazers are my absolute favorite item of clothing and I never would have thought to purchase a navy pin striped one on my own so naturally, I could not wait to style this baby. I figured I would honor this gem with a look that's very true to me...a white bodysuit, jeans, sneakers & a baseball cap. "Stylish soccer mom" vibes is what I always aim for when it comes to an every day outfit and this look is exactly what I was trying to accomplish. All outfit details are listed below! Until next time, tootles sugar plums! Xoxo.

The Recreation:

Hi friends! Welcome back! I am back with another 90's minimalism Pinterest recreation. I decided to go with a super low key, basic look because I feel like it's important to remember that sometimes less is more. I'm a denim girl through and through but sometimes I fear being too redundant/boring with my looks since most of my outfits are denim-based. This fear makes me feel like I have to keep things new and exciting but the reality is that some of the best outfits consist of a simple tee and jeans. It's clean, it's simple and it's almost always chic, as long as all of the pieces fit well.

When I saw this outfit on Pinterest, I knew it was one that I had to recreate because I already had identical items in my closet and I knew it would be easy to execute. I had no specific location in mind for this outfit so when we decided on a spot and noticed that it had stairs that looked very similar to the original photo, it was like it was meant to be. Sometimes things just work themselves out. Love that for me. All outfit details (or similar) and listed below. Until next time, tootles sugar plums! Xoxo.

The recreation:

Hi friends! Welcome back! Okay, we're really switching things up around here. I've been seeing a trend going around on social media where influencers recreate different looks they've seen on Pinterest. I'm not usually one to jump on bandwagons because I find that it distracts my from my own ideas and then I end up feeling a little lost and overwhelmed so I just try to avoid them all together. However, I realized that most of my outfits are basically my version of looks I've seen on Instagram or Pinterest that I love. So, in a way, I've already kind of been doing the whole recreation thing since the beginning of my blogging journey anyway. If you remember last week's post, I shared some of my favorite trends of the season with some photo examples included. Most of those photos are from Pinterest and most of them are looks that I have been dying to put my own spin on, so that's exactly what I'm going to do (focusing mainly on 90s minimalism because that's my whole vibe).

So for this week's recreation, since it's still pretty warm out, I went with a look that could work for both a mild summer day and also a slightly cooler fall day. I've always envied the fashion girls who can pull off a full baggy outfit and look chic while doing it. It's a look that I've strived to pull off myself but steered clear of because I assumed I would look like a potato due to my height. The girls who look the best in these outfits seem to all be 5'9 or taller so my 5'3 self thought there was no way. As you can see, I finally decided to face my fears and believe in myself and honestly, I think I nailed it. These are all items I already had in my closet and I am so beyond happy with how it turned out. The moral of this story is this: don't sell yourself short. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it. All outfit details are listed below. Until next time, tootles sugar plums! Xoxo.
