February Pinspired

Its time for another Pinspired with Shay at MixandMatchMama, Sheaffer at Pinterest Told Me To and Mel at The Larson Lingo. This is a fun challenge to recreate a look from Pinterest.

I’ve know what my Pinspired look for February was going to be ever since I saw this amazing look from Erin at Living in Yellow on Pinterest. I thought this would make the perfect Valentine’s Date outfit, because when else can you wear white?

February Pinspired

What first caught my eye was the shoes (My foot was still healing at this point so I was having heel envy). Who knew they were Mossimo from Target! Super cute, but sold out in red- but that didn’t stop me. You can still get them in different colors at Target, here for about $20. I hunted them down on eBay and you can too, just click here. I found one pair in a 7 here, but you just have to keep checking back until they have your size. I may get the other colors too.

Mossimo

I found two white dresses that I liked at Nordstrom. The first one is an Ellen Tracy Pleated Waist Sheath Dress ($108):

The second one is a Tahari Chain Detail Peplum Sheath Dress ($138):

With the first dress it might be fun to dress it up with this Ily Couture red bubble necklace ($49):

January Pinspired

Its time for another Pinspired with Shay at MixandMatchMama, Sheaffer at Pinterest Told Me To and Mel at The Larson Lingo. This is a fun challenge to recreate a look from Pinterest.

I recently announced my upcoming Sip Happens Party, where I plan to have my closest gal pals over for a fun wine tasting. The wine we chose, 14 Hands Hot to Trot, is inspired by the wild horses of Washington state. For my party, I thought it would be cool if I went with an equestrian theme. So I figured we could wear our best equestrian themed outfits, which means I need a new outfit (see how that works?).  I found a few different equestrian looks on Pinterest that I will use to come up with one of my own.

January Pinspired

 The most important part of this look is the riding pants, and I think I found the perfect ones with a faux leather patch at the knee. These Michael Kors Riding Pants come in black and chocolate for $99.50:

Riding Pants

I found a few different tops to mix and match depending on how much coverage you want with the pants. The first is this Bar III Tweed Faux Leather Blazer ($94.99) which would match perfectly with the pants:

This Ralph Lauren Zippered Crew Neck Top ($36.98) also gives the Equestrian vibe and there are lots of color options:

If you want something longer, this Halogen Cashmere Tunic ($128) does the trick. The camel would look great with either color pant:

The riding boots are needed to complete the outfit. There are so many cute ones to choose from, but alas, I have a wide calf and my selection is limited. I did find these Reilly Double Buckle wide-calf boots in my size that have both brown and black options. They are a steal at $54.96:

Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 3.31.18 AM

Unfortunately, when I went to buy the Reilly boots, they were sold out in brown, so I got these Celia Faux Suede Back Riding Boots ($49.96) instead. I also searched and found a 30% off one item coupon code that worked (AV131272) so that bumped the price down even more!

Screen Shot 2014-01-08 at 8.38.21 AM  If you really want to complete the look, try adding this Burberry Wool Silk Scarf ($150) nothing says equestrian more than Burberry:

The Perfect New Year’s Eve Party Outfit

Today I’m linking up with Samantha from The Ledford Life and Khala from The Birdie Bowl to create the perfect New Year’s Eve party outfit.

Pop Fizz

I am extra excited today, because I went to the podiatrist yesterday and he said that my foot is almost healed and that I can wear heels again on New Year’s! HOORAY!

I bought a dress earlier in the year for a Vegas trip that I didn’t end up wearing. Since then, I have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to wear it. I think New Year’s Eve is it! My NYE dress pick is Ralph Lauren’s One Shoulder Sequin Dress. I actually got this dress brand new on eBay (I love shopping there) and they get more in all the time, you can search here.

I found a similar Gianni Bini Gibson Dress ($139):

gianni bini

In an episode of Smash last season, Jennifer Hudson wore a similar dress and paired it with sparkly red heels which I never would have thought of. So I wanted to do that for this look.

I found these Badgley Mischka Divine Peep Toes in Wine Glitter ($157.99) which are perfect! My wedding shoes were also Badgley Mischka and they were super awesome and comfortable.

I have these Nadri Chandelier Earrings ($120) that would go perfectly with this outfit.

I also have this Nadri Micro Pave Bracelet ($150) that I usually wear with these earrings:

2e2797745d5134beaf65ec88075b5a38For my clutch, this Kate Spade Pop Fizz Clink bag ($328) is perfect! I wonder if they will do another 50% off sale before the New Year (I hope so!):

November Pinspired

I missed last month’s Pinspired on account of breaking my foot so I was really looking forward to this one. This is a fun challenge with Shay at MixandMatchMama, Sheaffer at Pinterest Told Me To and Mel at The Larson Lingo to recreate a look from Pinterest.

I have two events to attend in November where I will need to dress up. Unfortunately, I probably won’t be able to wear heels for a long time on account of my broken foot, so I need to figure out how to get glammed up in flats. The first one is to Hour Magazine’s Best Dressed Party and the second is the PRSA Annual Dinner. Here are a few of my inspiration photos from Pinterest to get me started:

I had a specific idea in mind for this look. I loved the purple color of this dress for the upcoming holiday season and think that this is a great dress for many different occasions. It is the Isaac Mizrahi Peplum Dress ($118):

peplumI wanted to pair this style dress with a peter pan collar style necklace. I found this statement necklace on Etsy for $15.99:

I thought these Nine West flats ($49.99) matched the necklace and pulled together the look:

For the second outfit, I just fell in love with this JS Collection dress ($258):

I have been dying to get this Basilissa Pave Bracelet ($99) and think it would go perfectly with this dress:

For the shoe, I think the Steve Madden Glitter Flat ($39.95) would work for this outfit:

Do you have any other suggestions on what I could add to this look?

September Pinspired

I missed last month’s Pinspired and I am excited to jump back in for September! This is a fun challenge with Shay at MixandMatchMama, Sheaffer at Pinterest Told Me To and Mel at The Larson Lingo to recreate a look from Pinterest.

When I was in school, getting my first day of school outfit was very important. It was like a fresh start; what was your style going to be for the year? Now that I’m an adult, every season is like the first day of school. A chance to get in on the popular trends and establish your own unique style.

There are a number of hot trends this fall, but I’m going to focus on bright colored blazers and leather for this edition of Pinspired. Here are a few of my inspiration looks from Pinterest:

September Pinspired2

The first thing that caught my eye about these looks was the necklace, probably because I’ve had my eye on it for a while. The Tempest Necklace from Stella and Dot ($198) would be perfect with these looks:

I found these fantastic leather and ponte leggings from Not Your Daughter’s Jeans. They have them in regular and plus sizes for $120-130:

I found this Madison Nylon Knit Tank for $19.99 to layer under the blazer:

For the Pièce de résistance, the New Directions Ponte Knit Blazer does the trick for only $40.99 with colors in Radiant Red, Cruising Blue and Black:

I loved the lavender trench coat and found this Ivanka Trump Double Breasted Peplum Trench for $79.99:

I found a few different shoe looks, just because I think you could dress this outfit up or down with various styles. For an everyday look, I got some adorable ankle booties from Payless last year that would work, they still have one pair left on eBay:

I found a similar pair at Nine West for $99:

For a dressier look, I like these Steve Madden Darrt Pumps ($66.96) or these Anne Klein Wrenn metallic cap toe pumps ($62.99):

I am in love with this look! It is so versatile, you can change the shoes and accessories and mix and match blazers for the entire season. The leather leggings are a little out of my comfort zone, but I am excited to try them and see what I can do with the look.

Do you have any other suggestions on what I could add to this look?

July Pinspired

I had fun putting together last month’s June Pinspired looks with Shay at MixandMatchMama, Sheaffer at Pinterest Told Me To and Mel at The Larson Lingo so I thought I would try my hand at a July Pinspired look. For those of you wondering I am still trying to complete my June look, but can’t find colored pants that look good on me. I have all of the other items, but am still on the hunt for the pants.

I am attending an outdoor wedding at a winery later this month and need to put a look together that is cute but functional. It will most likely be hot and I probably won’t want to wear heels. I really want to try a hi-low dress with wedges and I found a ton of inspiration on Pinterest:

Hi-Low Dresses

Hi-Low Dresses

I liked this Suzi Chin dress in Paradise Pink for $81.99 for a number of reasons. I have another Suzi Chin dress and I love the cut of it, I like that this dress has a v-neck instead of a strapless or blousy neckline and I think the waistline will be more flattering on me:

The key to this look will be the accessories, they will really dress it up.

I am going to wear my Vera Wang Lavender Penny Wedges with this since I don’t want to wear heels that will sink into the ground. They are sold out, but you can still find a number of them in the nude color on eBay:

I plan to carry my Patent Leather Coach Ashley Wristlet:

For jewelry, I want a statement necklace, so I decided to go with this Stella & Dot Bloom Necklace ($198) and to accessorize with earrings and a few bracelets that I already have:


n366g_dot_bloom_1

I am excited about this outfit, because I already have most of the pieces and it will cost me $279.99 to finish the look (I just need to buy the dress and necklace). I could wear the necklace with a number of other outfits and it would be a good investment.

I think this is the perfect outfit for my upcoming summer wedding. Let me know if you have any other ideas on how I could dress this look up.

UPDATE So we went to the wedding and it was fantastic! I loved seeing my friends get married and it was great to hang with all of my besties at once. Here is a picture of us (isn’t the bride breathtaking?). I loved this look, the dress fit great and I love, love, love the necklace and can’t wait to wear it again.

June Pinspired

As a new blogger I am excited to link up with my favorite blogs today to share a Pinterest fashion recreation. Thanks to Shay at MixandMatchMama, Sheaffer at Pinterest Told Me To and Mel at The Larson Lingo for including me!

One of the biggest summer trends is bright colored jeans. This is a little outside of my fashion comfort zone, I haven’t purchased colored jeans in years! My goal is to get a pair and create a few fun looks that I can wear throughout the summer.

Here are the Pinterest looks I am going to recreate. These are simple and basic so I know I would actually wear them:

Cameron Diaz

For the first outfit, I am going to purchase the brink pink jeans from Old Navy. At $19, if I decide I can’t pull off the look, I’m not out too much money:

For the white top, I am going to go with the Tipped Poplin Tank in Sea Salt from Old Navy, on sale for $4. You can’t beat that!

For the blazer, I think this would be the perfect time to get Shaeffer’s famous Oatmeal Blazer from Olivia Moon. This is a bit of a splurge for $79, but I can wear it with a lot of other things.

 

Olivia Moon Linen Jacket

Now for my favorite part, the shoes! My nude pumps have seen better days, so I thought these Michael Antonio Torio Sandals from DSW would be cute and comfortable. At $39.95 they are a steal!

DSW Sandals

That completes the first outfit. The total is $141.95 which is not bad for a whole outfit, plus shoes! I am actually excited to purchase these items and try this look out. This would be a great date night look and perfect for my upcoming New York trip in July!

For my next look, I am going to go with the same jeans from Old Navy, this time in the Pool Paint color for $29.50. They cost a little more in this shade:

I am going to try the Sheer Henley Tunic from the Gap for the top at $49.95. I already have a white layering tank I can wear underneath it.

For my look, I would like the shoes and the necklace to match if possible. I think that would tie the whole look together.

These Gabriella Rocha Jaegar wedges from DSW are so cute and I have been looking for something in this style. They are on sale for $52.99.

Last but not least, the pink beaded necklace. I opted to go a little more low key with the necklace, so I found this adorable teardrop necklace on Etsy for $15.

I am even more excited about this look! I could wear this on the weekend or even to work on a casual Friday. The entire look is $147.44.

Let me know what you think about my selections and please let me know if you find any of these items for less! I will definitely be rocking these outfits soon!
