Pinspiration - Outfit Version


Who frequently looks at Pinterest and recreates their outfits using clothes you already have from a Pinterest-outfit? Definitely me for sure! Except I can't wear jeans to work so I can't wear every outfit I wish I could from Pinterest but that is what the weekends are for right! Seriously Pinterest has helped me to look at my closet in an entirely different way and put together pieces I probably wouldn't think of before. When Alison said this week's Friday's Fancies were inspiration from Pinterest or anywhere on the blog world, I already do that!


But for some reason it was a lot harder to do that probably because there are SO many great outfits on Pinterest. The additional outfits I posted that I wore this week, one of them was actually already Pinspiration (Pinterest + Inspiration).
Here was my original Pinterest inspiration.


I am loving the chambray look lately and to dress it up with a sparkly dress is a perfect outfit!
Now I need the perfect occasion to wear it somewhere. 
Here is my outfit re-creation.
sparkly skirt

As I mentioned, I took a few photos of my outfits this week. Hope you enjoy!
This was my Pinspiration.



And this was my re-creation!

And my newest favorite item, this fabulous red skirt!

Have a fabulous weekend ladies! Thank you for your support on my blog this week, each and everyone of you! You all are special to me and I just want you to know that :-)

This is such a great idea. I've seen this on a couple of blogs, but never thought to do it myself. I don't have a pinterest account, but I still browse it sometimes. I'll be doing this for sure! I always wear the same boring outfits - it's about time I change it up a little bit! Thanks!
