Pinterest Told Sarah To!

Hey y'all, I'm Sarah and I blog over at Tucker Up
Sheaffer and I had a "blate" {blogger date} a couple months ago, and I am so happy she allowed me to ramble about my outfit over here at Pinterest Told Me To!
Thanks Sheaffer!

Before I let Pinterest boss me around, let me fill you in on my little life in Texas.

I live in the North Dallas area with my hunky hubby and our two furbabies, aka Wrigley and Bailey. I work in the corporate world by day and am a blogger/graduate student by night. I became Mrs. Tucker last June and a first time home-owner last April. I adore fashion, BUT this year my New Year's Resolution is NO CLOTHES, SHOES, OR ACCESSORY purchases for A YEAR. None, nada, zipoo. You can read all about my resolution and the reasoning behind it {here}. 

With no new clothes purchases for a year I am going to have to get creative with my outfits! Dim the lights, cue the background music, and please welcome my lifesaver: Pinterest! 

I looked to Pinterest last weekend when trying to come up with an outfit for a day with my girls. Can I mention one little thing...I am LOVING the Aztec and Navajo print. Ummm, anyone else?! I realized I only have one item in this print and on December 31st {my last ditch effort to buy something before my resolution kicked it}, in the Albuquerque airport {with no laptop and an iphone with horrible cell service}, I was scouring websites in search of the perfect Najavo cardigan. No. Freaking. Luck. Oh well, God was teaching me that I already have enough!

Pinterest came up clutch and knocked one out of the park {sorry for the baseball reference. the hubs and I played in college, so we are slightly obsessed.} with this little number. I would have never paired these items together, but, alas, I had a perfect outfit for a sunny Saturday!

Here are my inspiration pins {is that dress not to die for?!?}:
dress source//top right: no source//bangels and watch








Chambray Top: Forever 21
Aztec Skirt: Target
Boot: Chinese Laundry at Nordstroms
Bubble Necklace: Southern Affair Boutique
Turquoise Bracelet: Forever 21
Wooden Bangel: Hand me down from my Mom
Rose Gold Watch: Fossil 

So there ya have it, an Aztec outfit straight out of my very own tee-pee :)

Thanks for letting me share, Sheaffer! I will continue to envy the fab items you post on your glorious blog, all while writing the items down on my list of things to buy next year!

*********************************
HOW CUTE IS SARAH and her darling outfit?
Confession - I do not own anything Aztec inspired.  I didn't even think I liked it.
I was wrong.
Apparently, if styled right, it looks great! 
Another confession - when I met Sarah for lunch I about choked on my chicken salad sandwich when she told me how old she is.
I could ALMOST be her mother.  I mean, not really.  But almost.
(Shay, you can shut it.)
I felt like such a cougar on our blate.
:)
Okay people, If Sarah's look inspired you, 
just click on any of the pics below to check out similar items!
(And make sure you use the arrows to scroll left and right...I linked to lots of options.)
Thank you Sarah for letting Pinterest tell you what to do today!
If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times....
that Pinterest knows her stuff.
