An Outfit Inspired by Faith with Cayleigh of CNPrepster

     Hi Faith’s readers!  For those of you who haven’t noticed already, Faith is being her sweet self and serving on Work Crew at a YoungLife camp right now!  So hello, I’m Cayleigh, from the blog and Instagram CNPrepster, it’s a pleasure to meet you!  This is my week to post on Faith’s Instagram and blog while she is away for the month and I’m so excited to get to know y’all!  Just to give you a quick rundown on my life, I’m a fashion and lifestyle blogger, a rising junior in high school, and I run cross country and track.  I’ve known Faith for quite some time and we’ve recently become pretty close blogger pals.  I’m so grateful Faith thought of me to guest post on her blog while she’s gone for the month!  The first post that came to mind for me to write was a classic Faith post, an outfit inspired by Faith!  I’ve always admired the way Faith was able to pull pieces from her wardrobe to replicate another social media influencer (see her “An Outfit Inspired by…” posts here) so I knew I had to try it!  Enjoy!

     Faith usually gives background on the people she creates outfits of, so I thought it would be fitting if I did the same.  Faith, a seventeen year old rising senior in high school, started her fashion and lifestyle blog and Instagram in 2015.  Three years, a name change (from A Pocketful of Prep to A Pocketful of Faith), and over 4,300 Instagram followers later, Faith resides in South Carolina.  Outside of her blog and Instagram she works, plays varsity lacrosse for her high school, and is an active participant in a Christian group called YoungLife.  On Faith’s Instagram, @apocketfuloffaith, she shares pictures of her outfits, travels, Christianity, and friends.  I would describe Faith’s style as trendy and chic, and no outfit complete without a ton of accessories.

     When putting together this look I knew I had to stray away from patterns and reach towards a more simple solid top.  I went for a favorite of mine from a local boutique, this purple bell sleeve off the shoulder top!  I paired this look with a classic pair of white skinny jeans from American Eagle.  Although Faith doesn’t own this pair of Birkenstocks herself, I paired them with my look to replicate a pair of her sandals.  My favorite part of all of Faith’s outfits are the jewelry!  She is always wearing a fun statement earrings so for my look I’m wearing my Kendra Scott Elle earrings, which Faith has in the larger size.  I’m also wearing a dainty gold monogram necklace from Etsy, watch from Charming Charlie, and two bracelets; one from Lily and Laura and the other from Altar’d State.

     To further the outfit replication I even used Faith’s go-to poses from this blog post to make it even more similar!  I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it!  You can check out more posts from me as I post on Faith’s Instagram the rest of the week and on my blog and Instagram!

An Outfit Inspired by Jeanine Amapola

     Happy Saturday!  I’m so excited to finally be on spring break.  Today I’m continuing my monthly series “An Outfit Inspired by…”!  These posts are some of my favorite to shoot and write, it’s so fun to see how many of my fashion icons I can mimic with items I already own!  This look was inspired by another one of my favorite YouTubers, Jeanine Amapola!  Enjoy!

     Jeanine Amapola, a twenty-four year old University of Texas at Austin graduate, started her beauty, fashion, and lifestyle YouTube channel in 2011.  Seven years and 1.6 million subscribers later, Jeanine now lives in both Dallas, TX and Los Angeles, CA.  Jeanine uses her 304,000 follower Instagram platform, @jeanineamapola, to share photos of her outfits, travels, and friends.  I would describe Jeanine’s style as trendy and minimalist, much like Morgan Yates and Brooke Miccio (click on their names to check out my outfits inspired by them!).

     For my outfit inspired by Jeanine Amapola, I knew I had to wear my jean jacket and a pair of sneakers.  My UGG slip-ons are definitely Jeanine-esque and are easily dressed up!  Jeanine wears a good amount of white, so this white ruffle cami top from J.Crew was the perfect piece to layer under my jean jacket.  Like I said before, Jeanine seems to love experimenting with trends, so I thought my maroon denim skirt would be a nice option to wear on the bottom.  Jeanine wears very little jewelry, so I wore some simple band rings, a single cuff bracelet, a layered necklace set, and some faux pearl earrings.

An Outfit Inspired by Morgan Yates

     February’s installment in my “An Outfit Inspired by…” series is finally here!  In this series, I share a little about an influencer (whether that be a celebrity, blogger, YouTuber, or TV show character) that I love along with an outfit I’ve created with pieces from my own closet that mimics their personal style!  Click here to read my previous “An Outfit Inspired by…” posts!  In today’s installment I’m sharing an outfit inspired by another one of my favorite YouTubers, Morgan Yates.  Enjoy!

     A 2017 graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Morgan Yates has moved to Los Angeles and is taking the influencer industry by storm.  Morgan’s seven year old YouTube channel has over 265,000 subscribers and her corresponding Instagram has 35,400 followers.  Morgan’s relatable and hilarious personality, frequent travels, chic style, and college advice keep me coming back to her channel all the time.  I would describe Morgan’s style as edgy, trendy, and minimalist.  She frequently posts in black and white outfits, graphic tees, ripped jeans (especially black ones), cool sneakers, dainty gold jewelry, and edgy leather and denim jackets.

     I recently purchased this fun black balloon sleeve sweater from ASOS, and I think the accent sleeves and triangular cutout in the back are totally something Morgan would wear.  Sticking to her often dark color pallet, I decided to wear grey jeans instead of blue ones.  Morgan loves trying out trends (and to be honest these grey jeans are a little bit big on my waist), so I thought my Gucci belt dupe (shop it here, only $15!) would be a great way to accessorize the look.  Inspired by her love for comfy and chic sneakers, I chose to wear my plain black Vans.  The funky gold star earrings have been a personal favorite of mine lately but I could definitely see Morgan wearing them too!  The simplicity of the gold initial necklace as well as my everyday gold and rose gold rings also seem very fitting of Morgan’s style.

An Outfit Inspired by Kelly Larkin of Kelly in the City

     Today I’m sharing another installment in my “An Outfit Inspired by…” series!  This look mimics the style of one of my all-time favorite style bloggers, Kelly Larkin.  In my “An Outfit Inspired by…” posts, I tell y’all about one of my favorite influencers then share an outfit inspired by them that I came up with in my own closet.  If you’d like to read some of my previous posts in this series, you can find them here.  Enjoy!

     Kelly Larkin is a wife, mother, and blogger who moved from New York City to Chicago in 2014.  She’s had her blog, Kelly in the City, since 2013 and also has a 70,800 follower Instagram, @kellyinthecity, where she frequently posts photos of her outfits and family, as well as a 7,120 follower Pinterest, @kellyinthecity.  She’s been married to her husband, Mitch, for a few years and had the most adorable daughter, Emma, in 2016.  Given that she lives in Chicago, a city known for being windy and cold, Kelly’s style is warm and preppy chic, often including lots of plaids, pastels, bright prints, sparkles, and stripes.

     The first piece I knew I had to include in my outfit inspired by Kelly was my pink coat.  Coats are a must for Kelly in the cold Chicago weather and she’s not one to shy away from wearing them in fun colors like this pale pink!  Kelly loves a classy cable knit, so I thought my favorite white knit sweater could serve as a Kelly-esque top.  I opted for grey jeans to keep the look light and wore some fun leopard flats, as I’ve seen Kelly incorporate leopard flats into her daily looks several times.  Kelly keeps her jewelry pretty simple and preppy, so I stuck to some pearl earrings, a gold monogram necklace, and my Kate Spade watch.

An Outfit Inspired by Brooke Miccio

     Today’s outfit post is another installment in my “An Outfit Inspired by…” series!  This look mimics the style of one of my favorite YouTubers, Brooke Miccio.  In case you’re new to this series, in these posts I tell y’all about one of my favorite influencers then share an outfit I created inspired by them.  If you’re interested in reading some of my previous posts in this series, you can find them here.  Without further adieu, let’s get on with an outfit inspired by Brooke Miccio!

     Brooke Miccio is currently a sophomore in college studying business at the University of Georgia but is originally from New York.  She’s had her YouTube channel, Brooke Miccio (formerly BrookexBeauty), since high school and over the past few years it’s blossomed into a 152,500 subscriber name that has given her lot of opportunities.  She also has a 42,000 follower Instagram, @brookemiccio where she frequently posts photos of her outfits and travels, as well as a 12,500 follower Pinterest, @brookemicc.  Her content frequently includes fashion, lifestyle, college, and travel videos as well as vlogs.  Brooke loves to travel and has taken several trips to Los Angeles, the Caribbean, and Europe.  She’s close friends with Danielle Carolan, another popular fashion and lifestyle YouTuber who attends the University of Georgia (I styled an outfit inspired by Danielle too, check it out here!).  Brooke’s style is trendy and minimalist, typically including lots of neutrals and chic jewelry.

     In my attempt to imitate Brooke’s style, I chose to create an athleisure look, similar to outfits Brooke wears to class or to the airport.  She’s no stranger to ripped jeans, so I borrowed a pair my younger sister recently ripped to achieve the trendy, edgy look.  I recently purchased this grey lace-up sweatshirt from Old Navy, which I could totally see Brooke wearing, so I paired it with the ripped jeans.  Brooke, like me, adores her trendy and chic sneakers, so I opted for my white and gold New Balance for J.Crew sneakers.  As for jewelry, I chose a simple gold choker from KyzBeadz to match the shoes (plus I think Brooke has a gold choker like this one!).  I love all my KyzBeadz jewelry and I’d recommend checking Kylee’s Etsy shop out for more fun and trendy jewels!  The long and comfy sweatshirt sleeves cover my wrists and Brooke’s ears aren’t pierced, so I decided to leave my jewelry there.  Enjoy!

An Outfit Inspired by Dani Austin

     Long time, no installments in any of my fashion-related series!  Today I’m excited to share a new post in my “An Outfit Inspired by…” series featuring an outfit inspired by the Texan YouTuber and blogger behind Dani Austin (Dani Austin herself, ha!).  It’s so fun to experiment with different pieces in my closet until I create a look that truly reminds me of these influencers, so this series is definitely a favorite of mine.  My other “An Outfit Inspired by…” posts are here if you’d like to read more inspired by Danielle Carolan, Kate from Lonestar Southern, Carly Heitlinger from Carly the Prepster, and Abigail from Belle of the Ball!  Enjoy!

     Dani Austin graduated from the University of Texas a couple years ago and currently pursues her blog, thedaniaustin.com, and 141,200 subscriber YouTube channel, Dani Austin, as a full time job.  She also has a 135,000 follower Instagram, @daniaustin, and 8,400 follower Pinterest, @daniaustin.  She started her YouTube channel in 2012 as a college sophomore under the influence of her brother, YouTube singer Landon Austin, and it’s grown exponentially since then.  Now engaged, Dani has YouTube friends across the country and travels constantly for different events and brand deals.  Her content frequently includes outfits, travel related posts, sales guides, and faith pieces (read her Christian dating advice post here, it’s so good).  She collaborates with tons of companies, including beauty and fashion brands like Smashbox and Nordstrom, regularly.  As she plans her wedding, Dani is constantly sharing updates on dress shopping, sticking to a budget, and premarital counseling with her followers across all of her platforms.  One of the things I definitely love most about Dani is how real she is with her followers.  She’s constantly sharing on her Instagram story, from hauls to “retainer talk,” a little “series” she’s begun where she gets real with her followers from the comfort of her bed, retainer in mouth and all.  Dani’s style is funky and chic, often experimenting with the latest trends in the girliest hues.

    When creating an outfit inspired by Dani Austin, I knew I had to include this lavender bell sleeved sweater because I actually purchased it from Nordstrom after she linked it on her Instagram story (I swear I’m not always that easily influenced, but it was less than $40 and look at those sleeves!).  Since I purchased this sweater fairly recently, I was actually able to link the exact product for y’all, and I think you will love it’s soft material, flattering side cuts, subtle high low detail, fun sleeves, and gorgeous color as much as I do (it also comes in burnt orange, perfect for fall)!  I decided to pair it with a simple denim skirt that actually buttons down the side (same one I wore in my Thanksgiving outfit post, before I cut it!) because wearing a unique spin on a basic trend is not a far reach from Dani’s typical ensembles.  These fun TOMS booties were a no brainer, Dani’s constantly wearing brown booties and I could definitely see her loving the bright pop of color on these (plus the purple matches the sweater)!  Since the shoes and sweater were already pretty loud, I opted for some simpler jewelry including my gold Kate Spade watch, a pair of thin gold hoops, and a white and gold choker from Beads by Syd on Instagram.  I adore this choker for its larger, bubbly white beads and dainty little gold triangle charm.  Plus, it has a toggle closure in the back which makes it so much easier to put on than typical lobster claw clasp chokers.  All of my pieces from Beads by Syd have proven to be amazing quality, so I’d definitely recommend checking her page out!
