So, I have a confession... I'm still new to the whole Pinterest craze... like really new. I've been on Pinterest a couple of times but haven't spent a significant amount of time at it, so I'm still figuring it out. That being said, I LOVED the idea of using it to shop your own closet. The past year has been a "journey" of sorts of trying to re-figure out what my style is so that I feel more like a woman-mommy... not just a frumpy mommy! Being inspired (or Pin-spired) with ideas that help me use clothes I already have to do this is not only great, but economical! I'm also hoping it will help me figure out some of the key items I still lack for building good outfits (I already realize that I need some leggings and/or skinny jeans...)
The details: Mel at the Larson Lingo partnered up with Sheaffer from Pinterest Told Me To and Shay from Mix & Match Family. The idea is that on the 1st of each month to post one or many (your choice) outfits that you have created that were inspired by Pinterest.
Luckily, I remembered my Pinterest login and got to work. I have a few items of clothing that I'm always wanting to spice up a bit, so I did some research... here's what I came up with!
Outfit #1 -
I have a basic red long-sleeved tee (Eddie Bauer) that I like to wear but always feel
kind of "blah" when I wear it. I've tried spicing it up with jewelry but
that didn't seem to make me feel much different. I hadn't thought of
pairing it with a scarf (wearing scarves is new to me... I only have a
couple). That coupled with my boots from Lands End... I like the newer
look! The jewelry (which you can't see real well, is a bracelet and earrings that I haven't worn yet. They just haven't seem to match anytime I've tried them. I thought they looked fabulous with this shirt/scarf combo!).
Outfit #2 -
I'm looking forward to shopping my closet and coming up with a few more outfits before the linkup next month!!
