My First Challenge- Pinterest Inspirations

Posted on: November 9, 2012

Next week, November 12th -16th  begins my first challenge inspired by the lovely ladies at You Look Fab.  The challenge is for this week to find five Pinterest photos and use them in my own interpretation to inspire an outfit.  My outfits will be loose interpretations using colors that are paired together on some and closer matches should my wardrobe provide the needed items.  I am not buying anything to complete this week long event.

Below are the five inspiration outfits :

This was an easy pick for me as I am a lover of all things animal print.  I also own an orange sweater I recently thrifted.

I purchased a faux fur vest as a reward for my weight loss and have not worn it yet.  I am itching to do this one most of all. This has a very boho print dress that doesn’t represent anything in my closet, but I like my version.

I really wanted to incorporate an olive jacket into this challenge and think this is a good one for me to conjure up. I like the matching belt and boots here. I do think her belt looks up a little high here…

I recently bought a navy hounds-tooth  jacket at the thrift store and searched Pinterest for an inspiration that would give me a reason to wear it in a casual way. 

I just love  maxi skirts and wanted an excuse to wear one.  I  will definitely not be wearing strappy sandals in my fall version of this.

It was very difficult to pair down which five I was going to do.  I spent an entire day perusing Pinterest for inspirations and going back and forth from my computer to my closet pulling items... I am excited to be doing a challenge and hope you will join me daily for this adventure.

I was quite surprised that I did not choose anything with a scarf in the look as I love them.  I think there is pattern enough in all but the last look that makes a scarf totally unnecessary and that is a learning experience for me.

In searching through my closet I decided not to go shopping any more this season.  I own A LOT of clothes.  Once I reach my goal weight I would like to invest in some colored skinny jeans, but other than that don’t need much.  I will have to alter some of my favorites and will need the money for that instead.  Thrifting is an addiction and therapy in some ways  for this stay at home mother who didn’t take care of herself for years…. So, think I will restrict myself to purses and shoes and belts.  I already hear myself protesting and making a list of Christmas presents to tell everyone I want….

If you join me  on this venture by all means please post information in the comment sections so we may see your journey as well. Maybe some day soon I will learn how to do a link party but not this week….

Gratitude- I am grateful for the weekend and time with friends and family.  I am grateful for Weight Watchers and the support in my weight loss journey.  I am grateful for the people in my life who bring laughter into my world.  I am grateful for the generosity and kindness of others.

Have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget to stop by on Monday as I begin my challenge.
