Copy Cat Closet: Dressing up Shorts

Okay, we have something fun for you guys today.  We have teamed up with Kelley from The Grant Life for a new weekly series!  It’s called “Copy Cat Closet.”  And if we’re being entirely honest here, it was entirely Kelly’s idea!  When she wrote us asking if we would create an outfit weekly that she would use as inspiration and try to copy it or create her version of it, we loved it.

So here is what I came up with for Kelley’s inspiration:

Dressing up Shorts

Shirt: Express // Shorts: H&M // Shoes: Target // Bracelet: Tiffany’s // Belt: JC Penny’s

I wore this outfit to church on Sunday.  There was a little part of me that felt like a rebel wearing shorts to church and all, but this is California and I did my best to dress them up.  I sent these pictures, along with my hairstyle – the Pompadour – to Kelley on Monday giving her a few days to try and ‘copy’ the look.  Here is what she came up with:

Shirt – Motherhood Maternity [For real], Shorts – Target, Shoes – The Loft, Belt – Kohls

Here is what Kelley had to say about her outfit:  “I was really happy with how cute this outfit turned out.  I knew I wasn’t going to be able to copy the shorts but found a similar shirt and shoes for the outfit.  I threw in a belt for a little contrast.  When I put on this outfit I was instantly happy.  I felt confident and was excited to wear it out today.”  My favorite aspect of her outfit is her shoes.  They are perfect summer wedges that give her height and make her legs look great!  If you want to read more about how Kelley put together this outfit, head over to her place, The Grant Life, today!

Isn’t that the point, ladies?  To be confident in whatever we choose to wear as we go out and face the world?!  Little dramatic?  Maybe, but being a mom is tough enough, a little cuteness can go a long way.  We think Kelley looks great and can’t wait to see more outfits.

Want in on the fun?  Here’s how it is gonna go down.  All you have to do is put your e-mail in the box over there ——> or subscribe here.   Every Monday we will send out an e-mail to the subscribers with your new style inspiration.  You use that inspiration to create a look that works for you and post it on your blog.  We are going to be hosting a linky party each Thursday you can link your post to, so we can all see how others have interpreted the same look!  Fun huh?!

 Oh and if you don’t have a blog and have no clue what a link party is, feel free to still join in.  Subscribe over there —-> and instead of ‘linking up’ just e-mail me a picture of your outfit!  We all can use a little encouragement!

Hope you enjoyed it and happy Thursday!
