Recreation Recipe I

Reading fashion blogs has become a daily routine for me. Frequently, I use my Pinterest (Check it out HERE) account to save my favorite looks. These become inspirational on days when I simply cannot decide what to wear. 
            This weekend, I will combine three things I love: Fashion, Shopping, and Baking. Baking? Why yes, readers, I am going to recreate a favorite fashion blog outfit using a fashion recipe, thus "Recreation Recipe." Of course, following my own style and shopping mantra, we will keep it thrifty!
            Today’s inspiration photo is from Northern Style Exposure. I am currently obsessed with finding ways to pair super dressy pieces (like a tulle skirt) with a more casual top (like a tee shirt). NSE did this perfectly, using plaid and sequins. 

Here are the ingredients to this fabulous look:
-1 Plaid Top
-1 Sequin Skirt
Now add spices:
-Cat Eye Sunglasses
-A Wide Belt
-Leopard Shoes

I shopped the internet for these key outfit ingredients, and here is some of what I found…
Plaid Top
Forever21 ($19.80)
Old Navy ($24.00)
 Sequin Skirt
Both from Lauren Conrad for Kohls ($32.00)
