November Pinspired: Peplum Party

I was perusing Pinterest for some fun looks to recreate and stumbled across this peplum look paired with jeans. I always have such a hard time figuring out what to wear for family parties and events or running out to meet the girls for lunch or dinner and just rotate the same few outfits. The problem is when everyone takes pictures and I am wearing the same outfit again…whoops. So I loved this look and thought it would be perfect for the weekend. You can find the original pin here.

For the top, I found two great options. The first is the CeCe Cold-Shoulder Peplum Top ($59). The color is a little different, but I liked the cold-shoulder take on this.

I also liked this IMNYC Isaac Mizrahi Boat Neck Asymmetric Peplum Top ($69). I have a peplum dress from Isaac Mizrahi and love it so I hope this shirt is just as nice. The asymmetrical cut is fun.

I liked these Mid-Rise Easy Jeggings from the Gap ($54):

These Greene Foldover Boots ($85) have a little heel and some character:

I thought this Charlize Statement Necklace ($30) was gorgeous and a great replica of the Pinterest photo:

For the red top, I thought this Davina Filigree necklace ($15) might be a little more neutral:

Where would you wear this look?

August Pinspired: Kate Middleton’s Wimbledon Look

Like many others I was enamored with Kate Middleton’s Wimbledon looks, especially this fun polka dot dress. I loved it so much that I decided to recreate it for myself.

Her dress was Dolce & Gabbana’s Polka-Dot Print Silk-Blend Charmeuse Dress ($1,557):

I found three similar looks, for a lot less. The first one is from Sue&Joe, a Polka Dot Summer Dress ($23.99):

The second one is this Julian Taylor Women’s Polka Dot Short Sleeved Fit and Flare Dress ($58.80):

The third option is ACEVOG’s Vintage 50s Retro Rockabilly Polka Dot Classy Tea Dress ($35.98):

She paired this dress with the Nina Block Heel Sandals in Black Nubuck (about $80):

I also have three shoe options to choose from. Some brands just fit better on different feet so I like to have options. The first one is Sam Edelman’s Yaro Ankle Strap Sandal ($119.95):

Next is Vince Camuto’s Corlina Ankle Strap Sandal ($99.95):

The third option is the Steve Madden Carrson Sandal ($89.95):

Kate is carrying Victoria Beckham’s Quincy textured-leather tote ($1575):

This Michael Kors Mercer Large Leather Tote ($238.40) would work and is a fraction of the Victoria Beckham bag:

What do you think of Kate’s Wimbledon look?

May 2017 Pinspired

I bought these BCBG Pretia Pumps ($49.95) a while back and still haven’t worn them. Everytime I go to put them on I think that they’re a little much. So then I started wondering what I should wear them with. Pinterest to the rescue! I found a few looks that I loved and wanted to recreate.

I loved this look with the bright cobalt blue and peplum top:

I also found a number of photos of Reese Witherspoon rocking her red pumps:

These tops are inspired from the above looks and would make for a great recreation:

Tommy Hilfiger Polka-Dot Tiered Peplum Top ($59.50)

Lulu’s Keeping it Classy Navy Blue Peplum Top ($29)

Joie Iva Cap-Sleeve Silk Blouse ($64.50)

These Washwell Mid Rise Sculpt True Skinny Jeans ($99) are perfect to highlight the pumps:

To add a little sparkle try this Crystal Venus Flytrap Necklace ($79.99):

So now I have no reason not to break in these shoes. How would you style red pumps?

April 2017 Pinspired

Now this Pinspired look is one that I’ve had on my list for a long time but have never found the perfect top to match. Well I just found it and can finally recreate this look for spring!

Here is the original Pinterest link. I love the super feminine, but somewhat casual look. It screams, “I just woke up, and threw on some pearls.” The best part is that you don’t need a lot for this look. I found this Lace Blouse from Vince Camuto (on sale right now for $53.40) and knew that it would be perfect!

GAP Mid Rise Boyfriend Jeans ($69.95)

I haven’t tried the boyfriend jeans yet, but they are perfect for these looks. I always buy GAP jeans, they are my favorite.

Nine West Jackpot Pointy Toe Pumps ($79)

I love Nine West heels because they are so comfortable and I have these same ones in a different color so I can vouch for them.

For the bag I loved the Michael Kors Large Mercer Tote ($298):

I also found this Portola Belted Satchel ($29.99) in case MK isn’t in your price range for one look:

Stella + Ruby Statement Faux Pearl Hammock Multi-Strand Necklace ($39.99)

These were on sale and for a great deal!

NADRI Crystal Cluster and Faux Pearl Drop Earrings ($65)

I thought I might wear this look on a casual Friday to work, so I went a little lighter on the earrings than thin the original photo.

I would love to see a photo if you end up recreating this look at home.

February 2017 Pinspired

For this month’s Pinspired, I thought I would create a fun Valentine’s Day look. The outfit below really stood out to me. I enjoy having pops of color mixed with neutrals for a fun and sexy Valentine’s Day look.

To get started, I LOVE this Off-The-Shoulder Jersey Dress from Ralph Lauren. You can find it here ($74.99) and here in more sizes in the Petite ($74.99).

I adore anything from Badgley Mischka and this Jenna Snap Back Cocoon Coat ($279.90) is no different.

To top off the look, these BCBGeneration Pretia Pumps ($49.95) are just icing on the cake.

All of these items together would make you the star of Valentine’s Dinner if you’re having one. I would love to see some looks in the comments below that you want me to tackle for the next Pinspired.

Also, let me know if you end up trying this month’s Pinspired look!

August 2016 Pinspired

Since we have passed the halfway point for summer, I thought I would share one more really fun summer look. I have a few events coming up and thought this Pinterest look would be perfect to take out for a summer evening event. It would be easy to throw a blazer on during the workday and take it off for an evening look. I found the original pin here.

I found this Leith Stretch Crepe Tank Dress ($68) as a fun dress that would easily work for day or night: I found this Leith Stretch Crepe Tank Dress ($68) as a fun dress that would easily work for day or night:
I absolutely LOVE this Kenneth Jay Lane Golden Hammered Link Chain Necklace ($87.50). Diane always wore this style on one of my TV favorites, The Good Wife.
Kenneth Jay LaneI found these Anne Klein Chain Faux Pearl Stud Earrings ($32) that complement the necklace:

For the bangles, I liked these Kate Spade Stack Attack Bangles ($78)

For the shoes, I think my Splurge vs. Steal BCBGeneration Darron Pumps ($69.95) would be perfect!

I have a few ideas of where I could wear this classic number, I just love the crisp, elegant look of it.

April 2016 Pinspired

It’s time for another edition of Pinspired! Now that it’s finally warmed up in Michigan I can look at some fun spring/summer looks. I love romper looks, but as a curvier lady, wasn’t really sure I could pull them off. When I came across this look on Pinterest, I had to pin it for later. The color combination was right up my alley! Here is the original pin.

April Pinspired

I found four romper options to recreate this look and decided to include them all because this is something we definitely need to try on first. The first, a Muse Sleeveless Double V-Neck Romper from Soma ($39.98), the second a BCX Juniors’ Cold-Shoulder Necklace Romper ($49), the third a Tank Romper from Gap ($59.95), and the fourth a Tall Floral Jacquard Tie Back Romper ($79.50):

Navy Rompers

I really liked these Rampage Happy Platform Wedge Sandals ($35.40) and they are a great price:

Rampage Wedges

I found this awesome MG Collection Marissa Top-Handle Doctor Shoulder Bag ($35.50) which looks more expensive that it is!

This will be a fun summer look that you can dress up or down depending on the event. If you have any ideas for my next Pinspired, let me know in the comments below.

March 2016 Pinspired

I used to participate in a fun linkup called Pinspired, where you recreate a look you found on Pinterest. This was one of my favorite monthly posts to write so I decided that I would start it up again. Here is a fun look I found on Pinterest that I would love to wear for spring. Now don’t get me wrong, I definitely wouldn’t wear a crop top to work, but I definitely loved the pop of color and kept coming back to this image. Here is the original Pin.

Fashion 101

I found a similar style skirt first that I will use to style the rest of the outfit around. Because this skirt has a few colors, we could change up the top to create a few different looks. The skirt I found is a Pencil Skirt from Charter Club for $59.50:

Charter Club Skirt

I found two different color blouses to compliment this skirt, so you decide which color is your favorite. Or get both for a completely different look. The first is this Vince Camuto Wrap Front V-Neck Blouse in Guava Fruit ($79) and the second is this Target Women’s Short Sleeve V-Neck Blouse in Bright Purple ($44.99):


Next up are the bags. I also wanted to have fun with the colors on this, figuring you could mix it up. I found this Valentino Bag in Violet ($299.99) and this Kate Spade Cedar Street – Maise Satchel in Flo Geranium ($223.50):


For the shoes, I found these fun Nine West Sweet as Pie T-Strap Sandals ($89):


I felt like I also needed to add a pump style shoe since I would probably wear this outfit to work and strappy sandals aren’t really work appropriate. I like these Nine West Tornaydo Pointy Toe Pumps ($89):


I am thrilled with this look! I can’t wait to get all the pieces and rock this look in the office. I absolutely LOVE the bright colors.

November 2014 Pinspired

For this month’s Pinspired, I wanted to put together some over the knee boot looks. I’ve mentioned in the past how I’ve had trouble finding boots that fit my calves. Well, The Avenue has solved that problem and I found this amazing Eiffel Over the Knee Boots ($49.99). Now I’m just not sure how to style them, so when in doubt look to Pinterest for inspiration!

eiffel boots

I found this photo on Pinterest and I knew it was something I could pull off:


To kick off the look, you’ll need leggings. I love the Hue Ultra Wide Waistband Leggings ($36). They are so comfy! I already have these in black, so the look is halfway there.


I thought this Alfani Poncho Turtleneck Sweater ($46.99) was perfect for this look!


I also thought if I wanted to dress it up for the holidays, I could swap for this DKNY Sequin High/Low Pullover ($99.50):


I had a hard time find a bag to match the original look until I found this Maelle Satchel from Guess ($69.50):


How would you style over the knee boots?

September 2014 Pinspired

I figured with all of the kids going back to school and posting first day outfits, this was the perfect time for us adults to get our own back to work outfits. I know most of us have been working through the summer, but I always feel like the first day back after Labor Day is time to get back to business. For this month’s Pinspired I wanted to put together a first day of work outfit.

When I was searching Pinterest for some Fall 2014 work dresses I stumbled upon Ralph Lauren’s Pre Fall 2014 Collection and Altuzzara’s Fall Collection which were both made up of chic fall dresses.

grey dresses

I found some gorgeous gray dresses that would be perfect for work, here are a few of my top picks:

Anne Klein Side Tie Staple Dress ($88.99)


Petal Sleeve Dress ($198)


Tinley Road Brigid Ponte Dress ($49.50)


Jones New York ‘Mallory’ All Season Stretch Sheath Dress ($119)


Jones New York Collection Tailored Brooke Dress With Belt ($96.75)


In the inspiration photos, they paired these dresses with gray shoes and I found the perfect pair in these Ralph Lauren Sophie Pumps ($98):


I like a pop of color and that would be a great way to take the look from day to night. These Ivanka Trump Maggie Pumps ($77.96) are classic:


These Guess Beilan Pumps ($99) are a great fall pink color:


I thought these could be really fun for a first day of work back. You could also mix and match cardigans and blazers.

What would you wear for your first day back at work?
