PFC #15: Chic Pin-spiration

This month’s Petite Fashion Challenge is hosted by Long Live Classy.
The Challenge: Find a pic of an outfit you love on Pinterest, and re-create it the best way possible!
 I fell "head of heels" in love with this Pinterest photo and knew that I wanted to replicate it one day. Unfortunately I was unable to find a mint peplum top that I liked so I wore my mint chiffon blouse instead.
With temperatures continuing to rise, this spring is the perfect time to flirt with the lace trend especially when paired with a mint top, the color of choice this season.
 Dress these shorts up, or pair them with a tee for a more casual approach. These are the bottoms that will really take you from day to night instantaneously!
I usually pin travel and home decor photos on Pinterest but once in a while I will find an outfit that I cannot get out of my head. This is one of them and I was super-excited to get the chance to replicate it today =)

Hope you enjoyed my 4th PFC. Check out my last one HERE. Thank you Long Live Classy for hosting! Be sure to check out the rest of the Petite Fashion Challenge participants listed over at Long Live Classy.

  30. I'm actually loving your take on this outfit more than the original! You are beautiful, and those shorts are amazing!
    I still don't have a Pinterest, because I cannot afford any other distractions (Facebook/Twitter is bad enough!), but I'm very tempted for the outfit inspiration. Lovely blog, dear! xo

  45. The combination of the soft mint top against the lace shorts works beautifully. I've only ever worn cotton or denim shorts but never thought of getting something more dressy. Now you've given me ideas :)
