If you listen closely, I'm pretty sure you will be able to hear my little sister and a few of my friends laughing right now.
Q: Am I a writer?
Q: Am I a fashionista?
A. Um, no.
Q: Do I subscribe to lots of fashion magazines and feel like I am "in the know" about trends.
A. Again, no.
However, I do watch The Rachel Zoe project, which I think should count for something.
Here are a few of my redeeming qualities:
1) I LOVE a good bargain. Like, REALLY. LOVE. a good bargain.
(Just ask the hubby. I am constantly saying things like "Guess how much this was?", and then screaming something ridiculous like "NINE DOLLARS!")
2) I like a challenge.
Now let me be clear.
I don't like a challenge that requires any type of physical activity or too much brain power. Don't ask me to run a marathon or even walk a 5k, and please don't hand me a crossword puzzle.
But a challenge that involves cute clothes and an aforementioned good bargain?
Well, then I'm all in.
3) Pinterest is my new bff.
I am a pinning fool.
I can pin and pin and pin and never tire of it.
So, since I am a self-proclaimed "non-fashionista", Pinterest provides me with endless ideas on how to put clothes together and look "in", although I don't pretend to really know what "in" actually is.
It's a WIN - WIN.
So......to make my really long explanation a teensy bit longer......
I am going to try my hand at copying some Pinterest outfits and then blogging about them.
I am going to do it without buying lots of new stuff. I will try my best to do it with things that I already have in my closet. If I do buy something because of an inspiration photo, then I will tell you.
Without further ado....
Copy Cat Look #1.
Drum roll please.
(Inspiration photo pulled from this blog.)
I saw the inspiration photo last night and thought about the pieces I already had in my closet that would work. I don't have a pink bubble skirt (who does?), but I do have hot pink shorts. I also have a wide navy and white striped tee.
And....to kick it up a notch...why not put a smaller striped scarf with my wide striped shirt?
I like to live on the edge.
Never in a million years would I have put these things together on my own.
But Pinterest told me to, I listened, and I liked it!
It's basically the fashion equivalent of "If you're friend told you to jump off a bridge, would you? :)
Shirt - The LOFT
(I bought this top a couple of year's ago, so the link is to another striped LOFT top in different colors.)
Shorts - Gap Outlet
Scarf - Francesca's (no longer in stock, but lots of other great scarves)
What do you think?
Did I pull it off?
Would Pinterest make YOU do it?
