Outfits Lately a la Pinterest

My resolve to overhaul my closet and to gather inspiration from my Pinterest pins has gotten better.  I'm still gathering stuff to donate or try to sell.  I'm making a trip to my parents this week to go through the rest of the clothing I have there, which isn't a lot since it's mainly emergency items I may need if I'm staying over for the night.  That being said, I've been attempting to dress more in a way that reflects my style.  I've also have been making a conscious effort to wear normal clothes during the week instead of workout gear 24/7.  Partly this is all thanks to the hot and humid temps this week and wanting to work out in the early am.  The other dressing for fun and not taking it too seriously.  Here are three looks that came from inspiration a la Pinterest.  

 Cream Lace ScallopTop: F21 (similar), Jean Shorts: American Eagle, Belt: American Eagle (similar), Chunky Bracelet:Vintage (similar), Thin Bracelet: Banana Republic (similar)
You can't tell in the b&w photo but there is some color in the outfit.  The belt has a pink thread woven into it and the thin bracelet is aqua with gold detailing.  I ended up going to a hockey game in the afternoon and threw a navy blazer (from this post) over it to keep me warm.

Striped Maxi: THML (similar), Bracelet: JCP (similar)
This dress is from my last Stitchfix.  I was so excited to wear this because it has all of my favorite things into one outfit.  Stripes, details, maxi dress, check!  Completely effortless in 90 degree weather.  

I actually wore this outfit a month ago for our one year anniversary.  

Top: Zara (similar: here and here), Mint Cardi: Gap (similar: here and here), Dark Wash Jeans: the Limited (almost the exact here)

Linking up with WIWW and Style Sessions.


  1. Love that zara top... it's so pretty!
    I have been cleaning out my closet and selling my clothes... it's the BEST motivation to get rid of the stuff that I never really wear, even though I think I might wear it someday :) I haven't used pinterest to get ideas on how to put together different outfits with my same ol' clothes. Such a good idea!

  2. Everything is so gorgeous. I had that same dress in one of my fixes and almost kept it but already had a striped maxi.

  3. Thanks Amy! As soon as I saw it in my box I knew it was a keeper! :)

  4. Yes, I have a bag ready to go to Clothes Mentor. Hopefully I'll be able to get some cash for them. :)
