the power of Pinterest





Since it's still hot(ish) here in Colorado, I'm going to keep wearing and taking pictures of summer clothes. I'm not one to exclaim "FALL! I LOVE FALL!", so, if you're expecting me to break out my sweaters and boots, you're going to be disappointed. There's plenty of time for layers during winter, and here, that lasts from November to April...

Let's say it's still summer here in Colorado (it is. fall doesn't start for another two weeks, all you pumpkin lovers). And let's say you've already worn this dress several times and need a new way to wear it. You hop on Pinterest (doesn't everyone?), and see an outfit featuring an A-line navy blue dress with a flowy scarf looped around the neck. You do your best to recreate this outfit with the pieces you already own, and you add a belt to keep your scarf under control in the Colorado wind. You also add metallic sandals that match your belt. Voila! A new outfit using pieces you already own. Made possible by the power of Pinterest ;)

my friend has a blog. and wears cute outfits.


This is my friend, Chelsea. The friend who loves Harry Potter as much as I do (we did Harry Potter trivia together a few weeks back). 

See what she's wearing above?

What about below?


A gray tee, neon maxi, and a denim jacket. She thought this outfit up all on her own - no outside influence. I kept complimenting her - I mean, a simple tee and a super fun maxi for a fun Saturday outing is the perfect combination.

So, imagine our surprise when she sees her outfit (on someone else) on Pinterest! She sent me this screenshot, saying something witty along the lines "Stole my look!":


Obviously the people creating these style tips saw her at Harry Potter trivia and needed to replicate her outfit, and then post it on the internet. Well done, Chels.

Here she is with her husband. Had a blast at their wedding last summer - I danced the night away and had to be dragged off the dance floor...

She recently started a blog that you should definitely check out, especially if you're interested in fitness and/or running. Or if you want a good laugh (or 12). This girl and I are on the same level of hilarity (which is high - a very high level of hilarity) and Mean Girls quotes.

Here's her blog: Colorado Kicks.
Check her out, follow her, have several laughs, and be sure to report back.


Oh, and here's a bathroom selfie of her cute outfit, showing off the short layer underneath the maxi. She's cute, funny, AND knows how to dress?
Keeper.
Fo Sho.

30 for 30: Day 17





I know what you're thinking.

"WHAT WAS SHE thinking with this outfit? Tweed blazer, black, black, scarf? WHAT???"

However, I can explain. I typed

"pink tweed blazer"

into Pinterest (my Pinterest boards leave a lot to be desired, I know - I try to limit my time on there, as it's SO. ADDICTING.) And saw several images, specifically this pin that led me to theglamandglitter.com. Instead of dressing up the tweed blazer (like I had thought about), she dressed it down with distressed denim. I always saw other images that paired blacks & grays with the blazer, allowing the pink tweed to take center stage. So, that was my inspiration.

My execution might have been a little off, but the thought was there! I did need a scarf though, because 1) it was cold outside
2) I was wearing just a plain white tank under the blazer, so I needed to cover up a bit (did I mention that I'm wearing basic tanks under items that are need a little extra during this challenge? cause I am) 

So, fashion forward? Or fashion fail?

And for reference, here is the last time I wore this blazer on the blog...in May...when it snowed...grrr
