Pinterest Styling Inspiration--Take 1

Like many fashion blog readers, I am obsessed with Pinterest.  I can't really remember life without it!  I mean, seriously, what's a cook book?  If you can't find a recipe on Pinterest, it just doesn't exist, am I right?! It's such a valuable resource to have around.  It's like the Target of online sites.  One stop shopping for anything and everything you're looking for...and it's all free!  It's like window shopping from home!  Can we get any lazier? =)

I recently pinned the cutest outfit styled by the cute Alison from Get Your Pretty On.  When I saw it I wished I had thought of it on my own!  I loved it!  It paired the hot fall color oxblood and red...two colors I don't think I ever would have paired together on my own.  See her outfit HERE.

And my version:


Top-Gap Outlet (SUPER OLD--bought it for family pictures about 4 years ago and never wore it...this is the first time it's seen the light of day!)/AG Stevie Ankle Denim-Anthropologie/ Leopard-Spotted Skinny Belt-Anthropologie/ Anticipation Heels-Anthropologie/ Necklace-Stella & Dot/ Earrings-Ruche/ Marc by Marc Jacobs Henry Chrono Watch-Piperlime/ Multitexture bangles-Nordstrom/ Flower Bud Ring-J Crew

I gave the half-tuck a try for the first time.  It felt a little odd at first but I made it the whole day without messing with it.    I can't believe I have never worn this top before...every time I go to clean out my closet something has held me back from purging it (I'm WAY over the "if you haven't worn it in a year, toss it" rule).  I'm so glad I held onto it because it was perfect for re-creating this look!

Do you find outfit inspiration on Pinterest?  Do you every actually apply that inspiration to your outfits?  DO tell!  I plan to share more of my Pinterest-inspired looks here on my blog soon so stay tuned!

And DO come on over and follow me on Pinterest...you can find me HERE!  

Happy Friday!

  1. Aww shucks, Jenni. Thanks so much! And dare I say, you pulled it off even better than me. :)

    The necklace is a great touch, I'll be stealing that inspiration next time I wear this.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
