The J.Crew inspiration photo is just too good, so I tried my best to do it justice with items already in my closet. I don't have a navy top with white polka dots, so I reversed the colors, and added two-toned shoes and belt to give it some pizazz and tie everything together. Proving that even if you don't have the exact items in an outfit you like, you can definitely achieve something similar. Just like any food recipe, you can take the general idea and then substitute depending on what's in your pantry, or what your palette prefers. Putting your personal touch on something only makes it more fun!
