Inspiration - InStyle June 2012 - All About Ease - Barbeque

I love the "Your Look" section of Instyle Magazine. It it my favorite article of each issue. I'm thinking of making it a regular monthly fashion attempt each month here. Although - I never buy clothes for this blog (I try to never buy for the blog but instead only find pictures that inspire from clothes I already own.) and sometimes I don't own any similar pieces to their article. I guess I will cross that bridge next month. :P

I decided to try to create two looks from the June issue. The first picnic look is here. For the barbeque look - the article says, "Show off a peasant blouse against simple denim shorts. Look for accessories that play up the boho feel, such as fringed bag and beaded thongs."
Because my boho top had pink accents instead of blue - I swapped the jean short for pink. I added a chevron shaped gold necklace - I didn't have a dagger pendant like the article - I think the feel of my necklace is similar to the inspiration. And again I didn't have a fringe bag to copy exactly but the cross body mint colored mini messenger seems both current color-wise and a throw back to 70s/boho leather bags shape & style. I really like this look and am ready for some grilled food and maybe a game of volleyball!

P.S. I submitted these to InStyle Magazine inspired by InStyle section at the beginning of the magazine. How cool would it be if I got picked? Doubtful but a girl can hope! :)
