More "Pin"spiration

I stole another outfit idea I found on Pinterest.  I have been pinning a lot of outfit ideas lately, because I've been feeling mildly uninspired.  I love Fall and dressing in layers and what not, but some days I get tired of the same old sweaters and pants.  I want to keep things fresh and different too.  I saw a similar outfit to this pinned from someone else's blog and I thought - hey I can do this!

I love the colored denim trend because it's a way of cheating to wear jeans during the week.  They're jeans, but they don't look like traditional denim and therefore, I can get away with them on a regular workday.  And this is the third day this week I've worn my super cheap Target special shoes!  I can't get enough of them!  The pinned outfit had black shoes, but I thought, no, I want to wear these again, they're fun!

A nice blazer always dresses an outfit up too.  I am so happy to have so many in my closet, I think they'll help me keep things fresh and different this Fall and winter too so I am not just reaching for the same old sweaters.  Not that there is anything wrong with sweaters.  I have many that I love.

I still need to take a picture of the back of this ModCloth blouse so you can see the cute buttons!  Speaking of ModCloth, I kind of broke my shopping ban already.  Darn ModCloth emailed they had a "Secret Sale" yesterday - you choose your size and for $15 they'll send you a surprise.  Could be a dress, could be a shirt.  It's like Christmas in your mailbox.  So I guess it's kind of a way early birthday gift for me? I'll be sure to share whatever I get when it arrives!

  1. Agreed on the coloured denim cheating! Tomorrow our office has tickets to the campus team's game so I'm wearing black skinny jeans and the team's shirt (assuming I can tailor it to my size and style) with a blazer. Totally think it will work!

  2. Love your red denim look! So cute. :)

  3. Ooh I love surprises, it's like the jewellery stores that used to have surprise goody bags for tweens, I would grab them up! Great red pants and I can tell you're going to get your money's worth of the Target flats!

  4. I still love those shoes! What a great idea paring a jacket with the colored jeans, I may have to try this next week. I just bought black ones for work.

  5. Those jeans are from Old Navy? Love them! They look fun and so good on you! The shoes with the jeans is fab and I want them both = envy/covet!

  6. Bethie you look super chic. Love you in these jeans. Great choice pairing them with your fav shoes. Keep pinning...its workin. Dawn suitcase vignettes

  7. Ooooh, I love surprise packages, even if they're someone else's!

    Those red jeans are awesome. You can do so much with them. I need to start sneaking my black skinny jeans into the office more often - and maybe my mustard jeans with some fall sweaters. Those shoes are totes adorbs, as The Teen would say :)


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
