Summer Outfits: Inspiration to Reality


When working with my amazing Style Coaching clients we talk a lot about how to get out of a style rut. One of my favorite ways to dial in some inspiration, and start making some fresh outfits (aka get out of your ‘uniform’ and kick your rut to the curb) is by taking inspiration images and making them a reality.

For my clients it often seems daunting at first to look at an image on Instagram, Pinterest, their favorite blog, or a magazine and decipher how to make that particular outfit their own. This is where knowing your body type & what’s MOST flattering on your silhouette comes into play. It’s important to review an inspiration image and before recreating it determine the best way to make it right for your body.

Once you nail down how to make it flattering on you, then the fun part is putting together all of the pieces of this stylish outfit puzzle! Think of it as a game, as opposed to a chore, and let your imagination run wild…this is meant to be fun 🙂

I’ve shared 3 fabulous & oh-so-stylish summer inspiration images below. And to kick start your stylish journey, I’ve found items at a variety of price points for you to shop, thus helping you take these inspiration images and make them a reality for YOU. Enjoy!
