Pinterest Inspiration Thursday
Posted September 19, 2013on:
I seem to have a thing for reversing things from the inspiration photos. as my dress is black with white stripes, while the original had white with navy.
I planned this inspiration thinkng we would have warmer temps, but I think my creativity of adding in the white blouse was a success… In fact, I’m not good at wearing my white blouse enough and am thinking I could do this with other dresses as well….
The Original Inspiration:
This is from Vodka Infused Lemonade who is also hosting a link up today, so stop on by!
Notice the quilted vest she is rocking, a big trend for Fall.
I used what I had in my utility vest.
I also choose a lower vamp bootie and feel this works better for going bare legged as a Petite woman. I love wearing regular booties with tights in the same color which helps to extend the leg line.
Just for fun, I am trying it out with the grey low vamp booties instead of the predictable matching black…
Dear Readers, I am really liking the challenge of finding inspiration outfits weekly on Pinterest. If you don’t already do so, I highly recommend it. Recently on the You Look Fab Forum a contributor mentioned that she uses Pinterest to look up ways to wear pieces before wearing them to verify their versatility. When making my own purchases , I always think of at least three ways to wear it because if I can do so right off the bat, then I know that I will end up finding several more once I am in my closet. I really liked this idea of checking for outfit inspirations prior to purchasing. The thing that prompted the contributor to do so, was that she was looking at lavender jeans, a new color to her. This makes a lot of sense when adding a new color into our wardrobes… I hope you found this as helpful as I did!
I am grateful that my husband used his time off today to take the younger two to a Train store he found awhile back and wanted to share with them….
I am grateful that my Senior in high school had a break from homework today, as he has been having a lot.
I am grateful to my youngest for his apology to me for going back to bed when I asked him to homeschool. he had been up several time in the night and ended up sleeping for 3 hours… I just love that as soon as he woke up he came to find me and explain and took responsibility for his actions!
I am grateful to the dedication my husband is showing to our marriage.
