If you use Pinterest you know that it tells you when people have also “pinned” something you’ve pinned. Over the past few months I have two pins in particular that have exploded with being “re-pinned.” Both are outfits I saved as inspiration from other blogs and both are quite simple. So, I figured that today I’d show you one of them and how I decided to make it a reality with my wardrobe.
This pink gingham shirt, gray sweater, and black dress pants outfit as originally see on Outfit Posts isn’t that earth-shattering. I mean, I wear a sweater over a button-up at least once a week. In fact, I just wore this pink gingham shirt last week!
But, today, I paired it with a solid gray sweater and black jeans (instead of dress pants) as my homage to MK.
And looking at MK’s original outfit and my parallel I have to say the the wider leg dress pants really help balance out the layers on top. Also, I think her darker gray sweater helps with the color balance between the black pants and the pink. It’s a nicer transition than my lighter gray sweater. Admittedly, I tried this outfit with a darker gray sweater that I have but that one is a v-neck and I just wasn’t feeling the v-neck with the button up and a necklace.
Still, I clearly like the concept and it’s not one that too foreign to me. But trying to parallel the original outfit helps me figure out why some outfits work and some just miss the mark.
What are your thoughts on this particular parallel?
