The lovely sisters, Megan and Nora over at two birds have launched Inspiration Mondaywhere they circulate an inspiring look for participants to recreate or take inspiration from. Tomorrow is the first group event and Alexa Chung has been chosen for the inspirational look. I am posting my look today as tomorrow doesn't work for me, hence this is my Inspiration Sunday.
White T shirt: Marks and Spencer
Black tights: Marks and Spencer
Shoe boots: Marks and Spencer
Bag: George @Asda
Whilst I have been inspired before by individual pieces worn by someone else I have never actually attempted to recreate an entire outfit, which is surprising as it seems so obvious! I love Alexa Chung's looks and her preppy style but didn't think that our styles are particularly similar. I also have an assumption that she is so thin that what suits her won't suit me.
So here is my fairly literal attempt at the look. I don't have a blue skirt and this one is navy with a coloured pattern. I did consider turning it inside out as it might have worked showing the navy lining but instead turned it up at the waist to try and recreate the length. I don't have a rock T shirt so this plain one did the job and it was nice to get this bag out again as I haven't used it in a long while. I am not entirely convinced this look is for me but it has inspired me to maybe try to recreate a total look again and next time it might be a winner!
