Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!  I’m so excited about today’s post because it marks the start of a new series here on the blog.  I don’t know about you guys, but I have always been obsessed with “Get the Look” and “Look for Less” posts.  I think they are so much fun and a great way to recreate emerging trends and celebrity looks when you don’t have a lot of $ to spend.  I truly believe that you don’t have to wear expensive things to look/be fashionable and I think these kind of posts are proof of that.  Not only so, but I think trying a different look out can be so inspiring and really helps to push you out of your comfort zone.  I want this series to be something a little different for you guys and that’s why I don’t want to limit it to just trends and celebrity looks.  If you like a character’s look from a particular t.v. show, movie, music video, really anything you can think of I would love to hear your ideas!  🙂

Now on to this particular look – When I saw this picture of Zendaya wearing denim on denim, I instantly fell in love.  It’s so effortlessly chic and takes me back to Britney Spears circa 2001 in the best kind of way.  What I really like about this style is that it almost looks like the top and bottom are one piece like a jumpsuit.  Add some black accessories and a red lip and you’re good to go!  As I was mentioned before, you don’t have to break the bank to recreate this look.  This top was $15 at Forever 21!

Love,

Hi friends!  As much as I wish it wasn’t, summer is quickly coming to an end.  In a little over a week I’ll be in my last year of college, and although I’m looking forward to the new year, I’m really going to miss my summer wardrobe!  I’m taking every opportunity possible to wear my favorite warm weather skirts (like this one) while I still can.  This particular skirt from H&M is a few years old, but in general, I love bold patterns like this paired with a simple top and accessories during warm seasons like this one.

Love,

Hi friends!  I’ve mentioned it before, but my #1 secret for expanding your wardrobe is to wear your clothes differently than they are meant for.  These sunflower shorts are actually a romper.  I put my H&M tie tank top over the upper part to give the appearance of shorts.  You can re-wear pieces over and over again, yet your closet will always look like it’s updated!

Thanks for reading! (:

When this romper arrived in the mail, the first thought that came to my mind was that this looks like one of those cute all white tennis outfits.  Between the mesh in the center and the silhouette of the bottoms, I was instantly inspired.  Is it just me or do you guys think that evening wear is starting to incorporate some sporty vibes?  To get you inspired, we went for something dramatic and photographed in one of the most sporty locations possible, while keeping a very girly vibe for those who are looking to dress up, but still rock the trend (hence the heels).  I’m a total girly girl, so this is how I would rock the sporty trend in evening wear.  How would you wear sporty chic?

Also, you guys can get 25% of your order from The Shopping Bag with the code: THEINSPIRATIONCLOSET !  This necklace is already on sale, so with the code you’ll get it for really marked down! (:
