Although you clearly know that knockoffs make us uncomfortable and we'd never condone VPL, we also think some fashion faux pas are just facts of life. Sometimes, you spot an outfit that's just too good to not copy. Case in point: Just about every look worn by one of our fave L.A. bloggers, Olivia Lopez of Lust For Life. Perhaps not a huge surprise, sometimes Lopez can't help but rip herself off, either. She's been known to re-wear some of her own ensembles time and again. And really, who can blame her?
To see which wow-worthy outfit the lovely lady is risking getting caught in over and over this summer, we tapped the stylish gal to show us her ultimate go-to getup. Bonus: We've rounded up the key ingredients that make this poised pastel ensemble work and are sharing them with you, right here. Imitation is the ultimate form of flattery, right?
"This is my ultimate summer outfit because it's simple for on-the-go casual dressing, and the pastel tones keep the look fresh," says Lopez. "I'm loving light colors and minimalism right now! I imagine walking the streets of L.A. with Dead Man's Bones 'Pa Pa Power' on my iPod. It's been on all week long. I'm such a sucker for Ryan Gosling!"
