Houndstooth Pinterest Inspiration

Posted on: October 10, 2013

I did a search on Pinterest for ways to wear Houndstooth after finding these Joe Fresh  skinny cords on clearance

I have to say this print is very versatile and can be worn with any color as an accent! 

I hope my regular readers don’t get sick of me seeing how versatile these are…..

Linking Up with Pinned it and Did it! 


Like my pose in the rain that my youngest took while safely standing on the porch? 

Nature is a beautiful thing!  If it works for a bumble bee, why not for Me?

Feeling particularly silly,  and spunky today, hence the ryhming….

My Pinterest search turned up a lot of skirts, but hey, I am just looking for Inspiration!

Original Photo hails from Aimee at My Pink Life


Just for fun positing my reaction when I first got out there to pose and the wind and rain were hitting my face! 


The flash didn’t go off here and I had every intention of getting a better inside shot, but the day got away from me.

I wish I had taken photos of when I switched out my booties and worke my duck boots for a just for fun jaunt in the rain with my youngest.    We were quite the pair, but it was fun!

Dear Readers, Rain is exptected to last through the entire weekend. My seventeen old keeps hoping the rain will cause flooding and result in school stating late.  It’s happened druing hurricanes before.  I just have plans the next two days to be out and about in this but at least I’ll be styling Fall looks at last!  


I am grateful for the conversation my son had about a paper he needed to write defining one word that had value to him without sounding like a dictionary… He chose Generosity! 

I am grateful that I felt so much better today and actually had a decent amount of sleep

I am grateful that my husband’s early alarm (he’s going to the Y for daily workouts)  didn’t wake me up , as I was already awake…. (not the case on Monday, when I was bolted awake and declared my frustration!) 

I am grateful that despite the strong desire to go back to bed and nap this rainy day away, that my youngest managed to stick with it and homeschool.

I am beyond grateful that my TJMaxx boots were an unsatisfactory color becasue my oldest and I went to the store to return them and then went to JCP for sweaters for him.  It resulted in amazing discussions on fashion, freindships, future planning and just so many topics.  He is so busy with school and work that this is rare and precious!!!

First, I have to say that I love your rain photos! They are candid and very natural. Second, I love houndstooth and I love this look you put together! Those pants are amazing!

Pinterest is where I get tons of outfit inspiration these days…that and other bloggers have replaced fashion mags for me!
I love houndstooth this season. I never thought about houndstooth pants. I will have to give them a try! Love the yellow with them…a very “city” look!
Have a great weekend!

Thank you, and yes Pinterest is an easy more versatile place than fashion mags…

This might sound strange but I love your umbrella, I’ve always wanted one like that! And your houndstooth pants are great!

Umbrella borrowed from my 22 year old daughter! funny story that went along with it. She went to Japan 6 years ago and purchased one but had to leave it since it didn’t fit in her suitcase. Was mourning the loss so of course I told her to search online and I would buy her another one….

We do match! You totally aced this look! Those pants look great on you!

Hounds-tooth is here for the season, I need to pull out the wool skirt I thrifted this summer and style away. Thanks for more inspiration!!

great take on the inspo photo
love those pants and on sale…even better

I love black/white hounds tooth and you do it so well!!! The yellow looks great. Love the photo of your reaction to the wind and rain.
