Copy Cat Closet: Summer Night Out

We’re so excited to have the second installment of Copy Cat Closet today!  If you didn’t see our first post, dressing up shorts, here’s a little run down.  We’ve teamed up with Kelley from The Grant Life to inspire you to step a bit out of your comfort zone and bring you some style inspiration.  Each Sunday night, I send out an e-mail to a group of subscribers (you can subscribe here) with outfit, hair, and makeup inspiration.  Your goal is to try to copy the look, trying to use what you have in your closet, and making it fit your style.  We don’t want you to feel like you have to wear something exactly the same, obviously what works for some won’t work for others.  We’re just trying to inspire you to try new looks and branch out a bit.  Although we encourage readers to ‘shop your closets,’ this could be a great way to find a few pieces here and there to add to your wardrobe.

So here’s the inspiration that was sent out on Sunday:

Summer Night Out

I chose this look because it’s fun and kinda funky.  It’s colorful which is perfect for summer but with the cheeta print it gives it a little flair.  I thought it was perfect for a summer night out (hence the title) because it’s light and airy, cute and casual, all with still maintaining a dressy feeling.  Oh and the one ‘rule’ I had for this challenge was no flip flops!  Specially those living where it’s warm, that’s seems to be all we wear.  But pair something with some wedges or great pair of heels and immediately your outfit steps up a notch!

Here’s what I have for the hair and makeup inspiration:

Big curls and Colorful Eyes

I did my hair using my big sexy waves tutorial, but I gave quite a few other options in the challenge e-mail for ideas on how to do your hair.  For the makeup, I had a photo shoot earlier that day and my eyes were rather smokey, so I brought them down a bit, added some gold and softened the lips and it was perfect!  It is similar to my golden eyes tutorial.

Now for the fun part!  If you got the e-mail, or were forwarded it by someone, or are just now seeing this and want to participate, please do!  There is a linky below and you can link up the URL of your post. The only ‘rules’ are that you link back to us in some form in the post, and that you link up the post URL, not your general blog URL. Here is a super cute button made by Kelley for you to throw on your post if you’d like!
