Pinterest Told Jenni To!

Well, it seems to be working out that I have a guest post every week now, and I think it's so much fun to see others do what I do every day here at Pinterest Told Me To!
The concept is crazy simple:  find an outfit you like on Pinterest,
and in the words of the American Idol judges,
This week I have Jenni from Found in my Closet!
This is Jenny.
Isn't she just as cute as can be?!?
 I don't remember how I found her blog, but I'm just so glad I did.  I love her style.
We have something in common in that our go to mom uniform for fall and winter seems to be skinny jeans, tall boots, a shirt, a cardigan, and some fun jewelry!  But unlike me, she also does a really great job of stepping it up a notch with really beautiful dresses and pencil skirts for fancier looks.
I am rarely fancy.  :)

If you're a reader of my blog, you know that my go-to stores are LOFT, Nordstrom, GAP,
and J Crew Factory.
You also know that there are some days that my entire outfit from head to toe might be from LOFT.

Well, to get to know Jenni, here is an analogy for you:
Sheaffer is to LOFT as Jenni is to Anthropologie
Jenni loves her some Anthropologie, and it's so much fun to see what types of outfits she puts together with their unique clothes.

Here are some of my favorites of Jenni's outfits:
Aqua and Red
Super cute cardigan and statement necklace

If you want to see lots of her faves (including some of her dressier looks),
go HERE to see her year in review post!

So without further ado, here's Jenni!

Hi!  My name is Jenni and I write a fashion blog called Found in my Closet.
I stumbled upon Sheaffer's cute blog a few months back and have been hooked ever since!  I love the idea behind it...I mean, seriously, Pinterest really has become one of my go-to places for outfit inspiration...her blog is brilliant!  And so timely!
 Sheaffer asked me if I'd let Pinterest tell me what to do for a day and I was happy to oblige! =)

 What I like to do while searching through Pinterest is find looks that I can either copycat with things I already have in my closet, or pick out looks that I'd like to create in the future.  If I find a look I want to put together in the  future, and don't quite have all the items that I need, I'll add those items I don't already have to my mental shopping list.
Of course not everything I like will end up in my closet, but if I find something
that really jumps out at me, I'll go searching for it!  

A while back while browsing through Pinterest, this cute set someone pinned from Polyvore popped up on my wall and I loved it:

I knew right away I could recreate this look with things I already owned...but I'd have to tweak it a little.  It's the dead of winter where I live so I decided to change up the shoes a little.  No biggie.  Here's the look I came up with using the above pin as my inspiration:

See the Polyvore set I created based on the pin with all my outfit info HERE.

I love this color combination together.  It's perfect all-year round!  I loved coming up with a whole new look I'd never thought of before all because Pinterest told me to!   I got results I love without all the!  =)

Thanks so much Sheaffer for having me!  =)


Jenni!  LOVE your look! 
Isn't it amazing how Pinterest can help you put together a look that you might not have ever thought of on your own?!?  
I'm telling you....everybody should be looking to Pinterest for a little inspiration!
Do what I do and just think of Pinterest as your own personal stylist!

And Jenni, in honor of you and your love of all things Anthropologie,

I've put together a little collage of some of my favorite things from your mothership.

Thanks again Jenni! 

Oh....and if any of Jenni's peeps think this is a fun concept, I hope you come back to see more of how Pinterest bosses me around ALL the time!
