Pinterest Inspiration Challenge- Day 3

Posted on: November 13, 2012

I specifically searched Pinterest for something to wear my olive jacket with since I hadn’t worn it yet on my blog.  I was attracted a lot to the contrast of the brown boots with the black pants.  I know that for my petite body that all black would elongate me, but don’t want to limit myself too much. There is just no fun in sticking to such tight rules…

Here is the original Inspiration, which can be found at .    I prefer this look for my body type with a thinner belt and down lower….

.In my version I opted for vertical stripes and my heeled cowboy style boots.  I chose those boots for two reasons… First of all it more closely matched the color of my belt than my tobacco colored flat boots and secondly, they are a little lower down on my leg line and I thought it might help elongate me,

So far, I have to say, I didn’t have as much fun with this outfit as I did the previous two and think  looking at my next two, that this will remain my least exciting one.  I guess no coincidence that this is on hummppphhh day!  I am happy to wear my olive jacket!  I also think this look really is most flattering and I will definitely rock this one again!

We are having really nice weather this week and in the sun it actually feels too warm for the jacket layer Took this on Monday when I had a photographer home and the high for the day was 73 degrees….Seeing so many other bloggers dealing with snow right now and feeling lucky since I don’t like it much….Of course on Tuesday we had rain and the temp dropped to 46.

I am really enjoying this challenge and can’t wait to photograph the next two outfits… Come back and visit tomorrow to see the next Pinterest Inspiration….

Gratiude:  I am grateful for unseasonably warm weather and the sunshine Monday when I took the photos….  I am grateful for the conversation with my daughter today.  I am grateful that I already have most of the items needed to make Thanksgiving dinner…

As always Dear Readers, your comments are welcomed and appreciated, just head back to the top of the post to leave your comments….
