One of the best things about being part of the personal style blogosphere is all of the great inspiration that we can get from each other! Whether we get ideas of how to pair certain pieces in our closet with other pieces that we never would have thought of ourselves, to putting our own spin on an outfit that we saw and love on another blogger, the inspiration is endless. Recently Kendi talked about having a folder on her desktop where she puts photos that inspire her so that she can recreate outfits that she sees, and I just loved the idea! I started doing that myself and this is the first outfit that I have recreated. This ensemble is a hat tip to the lovely (and modest!) Elaine. Elaine has such amazing style, is totally gorgeous and is such a personal role model of mine as a modest fashion blogger...i may or may not have a bit of a girl crush (shh...don't tell D!):)
I love the simplicity of the chambray shirt with a simple black skirt. I wanted a splash of color and since I don't have any cute hoodies like Elaine (mine are all huge, shapeless and an assortment of weird colors...the type of hoodie only meant to be worn around the house) I decided to add a colorful turquiose skinny patent leather belt. I completed the look with black accessories: fringed moccasins, knit beret, fabric flower necklace and a chunky beaded bracelet.

Who do you get style inspiration from? Do you recreate outfits that you see and love?
