Style Challenge: Copy an Outfit from Pinterest

It's Thursday, and that means it's time for the Style Challenge at Putting Me Together. This week's challenge was to replicate an outfit from Pinterest. I don't have a zillion things pinned on Pinterest, but I do have a few cute outfits saved and it was fun to look through them and decide which one I wanted to draw from for inspiration.

Here's my outfit, which was warm, comfy and had the advantage of getting me to wear one of my hand-knit shawls that seem to languish in the dark depths of my closet. It's not an exact match for the Pinterest outfit, but it's got lots of similar elements. And it pushed me a bit out of my comfort zone; I normally wouldn't wear a button-down shirt completely unbuttoned like that, which is weird because I wear most of my cardigans open. I was worried it would take away some of my shape, but the stripes underneath helped.

This is the look I was going for. Here's the Pinterest link.

Striped shirt: check.
Chambray button-down: check.
Knit neckwear: check.
Dark pants: check.
Brown boots: check.

How'd I do? Check back next week to see me attempt to try a new hairstyle (yikes -- not my forte!).


  1. This looks just like the pin! I am hesitant about wearing my chambray open too--like trying to figure out the balance between laid back and sloppy. Great job on the style challenge! :)

    1. Thanks, Lauren! It was fun to try something new! :)

  2. I've only worn my chambray unbuttoned once, and while it was comfortable, it just wasn't me. It boggles my mind how Pinterest can make open chambray look so ridiculously awesome.


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
