Pinned It and Did It - Maternity style

Hey everyone!  I'm linking up today with Heather of Style Journey for a Pinned It and Did It linkup!  I love using Pinterest for style ideas.  Lately I've been pinning lots of maternity style ideas, especially ones that will work for me this fall and winter, but I found this cute one of Vanessa Lachey and decided, this is a good look for summer, especially when I pretty much had the necessary pieces to duplicate it!

Before we get into my outfit - I just have to say, I like Vanessa so much better with Nick than Jessica Simpson being with him!  I will admit to having been an avid watcher of Newlyweds back in the day (hey I was in college, MTV was on like all the time) but I always felt bad for Nick, I thought he kind of had to live in Jessica's shadow.  Vanessa is a much better fit for him and I was so happy for them when they got married and then had their baby.  So, anyway, I'm kind of excited to copy Vanessa's style!  Here's my take!

Jacket - LOFT, consignment
Dress - Merona, Target
Necklace - Charming Charlie
Bracelets - S&D
Bag - 31 Gifts
Sunglasses - Fun Sisters Nisswa
Sandals - Clothes Mentor

I am SO happy this dress still fits, it's always been one of my favorites.  It's like wearing PJ's to work, which I realize I say almost every time I wear it, but it's so true!!  I just love it.

I really love Pinterest too, I sing it's praises quite often here, but I really do like using it.  I have used it for ideas other than just style - I have tried a few recipes, I've pinned some short hairstyles I've liked and I've especially been pinning baby stuff lately.  Mostly though I love it for style ideas!!

 I also wanted to share a close up of my arm party - I really like how it turned out today.  Yes these are all Stella and Dot as usual, I have an addiction and can admit it.  I had to have help with one of these, I rarely wear the one on the top - the clasp is really hard to do, but Mr. Monkey happily helped me put it on today, so I was kind of excited!

So anyway, that's my Pinned and Did It for the week!  Check out the other bloggers Pinspired ideas over at Heather's blog!
