I've created an example that will undoubtedly serve me well and possibly provide you with ideas to save you from the inevitable creativity slump that hits every so often.
The outfit I'm inspired by is from a personal style blog called Wendy's Lookbook, although I actually found the following image via Tumblr.
There are a few key points that must be recognized.
My version focuses on the pairing of a white blazer with printed shorts. These Topshop shorts have little in common with their predecessor. The overall idea is that the shorts are colorful and printed; the top is a solid color that can be found within the print below it. Wendy based her outfit off of a yellow hue, whereas mine uses blue. The white blazer works in both instances because the prints of the shorts are set against a white background.
The gold watch is transfered over to my outfit in the form of a more affordable version.
Finally, heels in a contrasting color add the extra pop the outfit needs.
Remember to take your inspiration in healthy doses and let your creativity reign.
