Pinterest Inspiration Challenge Day 1

Posted on: November 11, 2012

May we all take a quiet moment today to honor those who have served our country and offered us protection.  Most of all may we honor those who gave their lives in pursuit of serving their country.  May the school board of Virginia Beach hide their heads in shame for using this Veteran’s Day as a make- up day for Hurricane Sandy.

I am  excited to start this challenge, as it has been so much fun to plan it.  I almost wanted to start early and post this over the weekend.  I’m like a child and can’t wait for things sometimes.  As  a child I was the one who searched out the hiding places for Christmas presents because I just didn’t know how to wait.

Here is the original picture from Pinterest. I believe it originated from this blogger,   The reason I chose it was because I owned very similar pieces and really like the animal print and orange.  I really think every woman should embrace some form of animal print in her wardrobe.

And now for my version, Did I nail this look or what?  This was the easiest one to style and I am happy with the results. I opted for straight leg jeans since that is what I had that currently fits me.  I also changed the flats to my nude pumps.  I wore this to the mall to hang out with a friend and received several compliments, so guess I am on the right track!

As a girl who love skirts and dresses, I thought it would be fun to add a little twist and try this look as well. I originally planned to wear this skirt with tights and shooties, but changed it since it was 64 degrees on Saturday.   Like my new orange belt?

One item still on my wish list is a leopard spotted scarf and if I had one, I would have been tempted to do yet another outfit inspired by the original. But not going to let that stop me from trying one more twist… Just really want to show options of animal print and the orange so if you will be challenged to try something similar in your own closet.

Since I do have a new belt and shoes that could change this a little I couldn’t resist trying this one as well. I think this is a good option for someone who just wants to dip their toes in the water of  wearing animal print.  With only little touches in the belt and shoes anyone can pull this one off!

Now I must stop and move on to thinking about tomorrow’s challenge….But, would really love it if you would answer my poll question:

Gratitude-I am grateful to have found a better order to home school that is working beautifully!  I am grateful for the upcoming holiday and that I already have my turkey! I am grateful for my unwavering patience that make me a better mother.

You really took the inspiration and made some wonderful looks, Tracey! Yes, I do love your new orange belt, it adds real zing. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

I ordered that belt from Qvc and literally squealed when it arrived and I saw the true color…Loved your dress as a top

These are some great outfit inspirations! Great use of animal prints!

I love the switched-around look with the leopard sweater and the olive pants. Definitely my favorite and a potential inspiration for me in the future!

glad you found something inspirational, that is every bloggers hope!

That look was also a favorite of mine, but didn’t want to indicate anything and influence the voting…

I just found your blog via YLF. We have a lot in common. I joined Weight Watchers 4 weeks ago and am really liking it. I am also a stay at home mom of six. You look great and have an awesome sense of style. I hope to become more style conscious and confident with weight loss. I would be interested in the reading program you are using. Keep up the great work! Cindi I just started a blog about weight loss not nearly as exciting as yours……

Congratulations on beginning a weight loss journey…I gave details on my blog regarding the reading program, on a post entitled something like Homeschooling Year 2…. Looking forward to reading your blog, which I will do in the morning as I am heading to bed…

Great take on the inspiration! Pinterest is such an amazing place to find ideas. I pinned this look too 🙂 Heather

I have been hearing all day of people that have also pinned this look. I guess great minds think alike…

I pinned that same outfit! Love your literal interpretation and all of the other looks too.

That pin is very popular as I have found out today! i was so lucky to have similar items…

Seriously…I love that first look! And the way you are “tying” your belt. You inspired me to pick up a animal print blouse at a consignment store today : )


so happy to hear that you were inspired to get that blouse. You made my day!

Great interpretations of the Pinterest look and nice inspirations for us to get ideas from. I love seeing photos and thinking I have similar pieces and running to my closet to create a new outfit. It’s kind of exhilerating.

I know exactly what you mean… this challenge has been so much fun…. I really wanted to inspire others and am so happy with feedback today that I am doing so…

I love this look on you, great layering

I love the fact that you reinvented it so many ways! Only the truly creative can accomplish that!

Thank you! what a sweet compliment that melted my heart….

I love ALL of the outfits! You did such a great job with this! Your pin is from one of my favorite fashion blogs – I love her style and have several things pinned from her site! PS – I neeeed your blouse in the first picture! Where’d you find it? Thanks for linking up with us!

I am sorry to say that my blouse is one I have had for a good amount of years as it is a 100% silk gift from my sister in law.
Thank you for your comment, it prompted me to go to her site and add it into my post, a terrible oversight on my part….

I like all your looks. But I think the photo of the first is the most flattering. All are really a lesson on variations on a theme!

Thank you, appreciate you getting the intention of my doing the variations…

WOW! love all the different ways you interpreted the outfit! really great post. thanks for linking up!
