Inspiration Monday: Cherry Swimsuit

Inspiration Monday: Cherries Swimsuit
Today is yet another Inspiration Monday, but I’m going to give you guys a little something different. A few selected fashion bloggers and I were chosen by to participate in their Uniquely You challenge. The challenge was that they would give us a piece of clothing, and we would have to create a story (outfit) using that one piece we were given. The winning look will be displayed on ModCloth’s Wanelo page with a link back to the outfit creator’s blog. Challenge accepted! I thought that it was really cool how she reached out to me to join the challenge and I couldn’t wait to get the piece. One of the catches was that I had to create an outfit that would look good on plus size women as well.
The one piece I was given to work around was a bathing suit with a cherries fabric. I created two stories for the challenge because I was stuck in between two outfits. I also decided that it was best to include both because all women have different personalities and style. I used dresses for the stories because I thought they were chic to go along with the bathing suit and they were easy to slip on over the suit. Also, from my previous experiences of going to the beach or the pool, my family would usually go out to eat because we were too tired to cook after a long day of swimming so it was easier to just get dressed nicely and go eat. I used all the red and the green from the cherries found in the bathing suit in the outfit because I like to match my bathing suit to my outfit.

One of my favorite things to do when I’m bored is to go through Pinterest and look at the wide variety of things people have interests in. Every now and then I find a few things that catch my eye and I pin. I was browsing through the crafts section and all of a sudden I saw these cookie sacks. I thought they were super cute and that they would be good for putting gifts in or even for decoration. I also like the contrast of the green and the red against the brown bags.  I was inspired by the bags because they were very seasonal and I like creating seasonal outfits now and then. I like how the bags include a small amount of red, yet it catches enough attention. Also the way they are displayed and created is really creative. In the outfit I made sure to use that small amount of red so that I get the same outcome as the bags. I want to give a big thank you to Lisa from for letting me use her picture in my post. Check her website when you have a chance, she has a lot of pretty things. I often get inspirations and I like to turn them into outfits. What do you like to do with your inspirations?
