Style Inspiration from Garner Style

I don't wear a ton of prints, as I tend to tire of them quickly.  That said, I'm always attracted to tribal-inspired prints.  Lately, I've also really been into the combination of blue and yellow, so when I saw this easy top from The Limited, I decided it was a must have.

My outfit today is very loosely inspired by this recent look by Chastity over at Garner Style

I am always amazed by the feminine and funky looks that Chastity puts together, and this look is definitely a favorite.  The tribal print dress is gorgeous, and I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm just a little jealous that I don't have that beautiful lemon clutch!!!

I added in a lemon twist with a cute charm bracelet I recently picked up on clearance at Ann Taylor.  I substituted a white jacket for the white belt and opted for beige booties instead of citron sandals.
Booties:  Target (Available here)
Instead of the domino bangles (note to self - get one of these), I added a yellow howlite necklace necklace.
Necklace:  eBay (Similar here)
My manicure was based on a photo posted by Chastity on her Facebook page

I love navy matte nails and create this look often, but I had never thought about adding the one glittery nail.  Realizing that I already had the Essie glitter polish, I decided to make this look happen!  :-)

Again, today's outfit is only very loosely based on Chastity's look, and I had to work with what I had.  While her look was for a fashion event, mine was for work in a corporate office. 

Style inspiration is everywhere, and I love the idea of taking an idea you love and making it work with your closet and lifestyle.

From where do you draw style inspiration?

  1. Love this tribal top and the outfit you created!! Can you tell me if you're wearing the regular or petite length?

    1. Thanks so much Kara! This is the regular length, though the petite would have been better!

  2. I adore Chastity's style and I love how you made it your own. I really love the combination of blue and yellow and I think you did a fantastic job with the pulling it together. Your nails are so fun and I love the glitter accent nail, I'm not big on nail art but I like having a glittery accent nail.


  3. I love the outfit and the nails! I'm not a big print wearer, but this is something I could manage. :)

    PS, have you ever checked out Jamberry Nail wraps? Awesome alternative to polish and last (and wear) much better! I'd be happy to email you more information (or some samples) if you are interested. http://nailwrapz.jamberrynails.net/
