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.

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/432134526720863712/

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.

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:

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):

Blouse

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):

satchels

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

PG.SWEETASPIEX5.JJ158A1.PZ

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):

PG.NWTORNAYDO.JJ3JESY.PZ

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!

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.

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)

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?

May 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.

As I mentioned last week, I have a lot of weddings this season. I still have three weddings left and one is at a winery/resort in Washington (the state). I was looking for a fun, resort type outfit to wear to this wedding and these pictures inspired me:

I was really feeling the navy and gold look and wanted to recreate something similar that was casual, but still dressy.

I found the perfect navy dress from Felicity & Coco ($78):

I fell in love with these Klub Nico Moxie Sandals ($224.95), but they are a little pricey, I may have to wait for a deal:

For accessories, I figured I could use the Teardrop Chandelier Earrings I already have from The Limited (on sale for $13.77):

and the Pave Link Bracelet ($68) that I have from Nordstrom:

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:

Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 2.57.34 AM

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

Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 3.00.39 AM

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:

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:

november pinspired

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?
