From InStyle's May issue

I love women's magazines! Probably every month I clip something out and pin it up on the "life concepts" mooodboard I keep next to my French Press and Restoration Hardware coffee table. HA! Did you guys think I was a classy lady there for a minute? I actually just see stuff I like and ocassionally remember to buy it/look it up/try it myself.

Anyway, I decided to start this little feature where editors and readers can try out stuff that inspires us from women's media (magazine, website, whatever). It doesn't have to be fashion/beauty -- it can be any kind of tip, picture, or advice, as long as it's something you can try integrating into your life.

Our first installment: The above picture of Katy Perry from May's InStyle's "colorshocking" freature. I like those shades of blue and pink together! And I knew I had them both in my closet, so I recreated the look below:

My version #1: Zara shirt and Express skirt

My version #2: H&M skirt, J Crew skirt

Is this a stupid idea? I'm tired. You can send yours to emily@xojane.com.
