Pinterest Inspiration Thursday

Posted on: September 19, 2013

Once again joining Heather for Pinned It  and Did It Linkup

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:

Banana Republic Olive Vest

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.

Awesome! You did great with your inspiration and put a nice spin of your own on it. I really like the layering you have going on too! Thanks for linking up 🙂

I realized I commented on the wrong post!!! 🙂 Just wanted to say that I am flattered that you should my look to pin and then recreate. Love your look and those boots are fabulous!!!!! Thank you for linking up. See you next Thursday.


I love all of your layering
The crisp white button up under the dress is fantastic

My first attempt at layering a blouse under a dress, but it won’t be the last.

Fun look, I’m planning to wear booties with a striped dress of mine next week too. Love your take 🙂

Wearing booties with dresses is a favorite look of mine. Thanks for commenting!

Nice! I really like your outfit. I can see how it was inspired by her outfit, but you definitely made it your own!

Thank you, that’s what I like about Pinterest… I use it to see how it will inspire me to combine things I already own. I know others use it to see what to buy.. it works both ways…

Great look! Love those grey booties and they fab with this outfit.
