I’m having a major crush right now on everything Rach of Pink Peonies wears. Do you follow her? She has a pretty feminine style, wearing lots of color (pink and lime) so I love that obviously, but she looks so put together and pairs together pieces I would have never thought to do myself. That’s one of my favorite things about following fashion bloggers. They are so talented and creative with their entire closet, and combine the most unique patterns, colors, and textures. It inspires me to think outside the box when I’m getting dressed in the morning.
However, being the well-established fashion blogger that she is, Rach has a tendency to wear designer items that are SUPER pricey. Valentino bag, Jimmy Choo shoes, Prada…things that are definitely not in the budget right now. So while I love Rach’s outfits, I have to source my own pieces and recreate my favorite looks. But that’s what makes it fun!
Today I recreated Rach’s minty lime outfit she posted a couple weeks back. It’s incredibly simple and unfussy yet totally chic. Now that’s my cup of tea. In her version, she wore a J.Crew skirt and blouse (both of which are now on sale) and Jimmy Choo shoes, but I found lookalikes that are even more affordable. It’s a win win!
This Sunday we’re having our monthly Midwest Bloggers coffee date in Des Moines and I hope to see you Iowans there! :)
