Create28 ~ My Pin It & Did It Look! + LINK UP

Happy Monday, girls!! I cannot believe this is the final week of Create28 ~ Lovely Summer Looks!!! I have had a BLAST and even more, I have absolutely LOVED seeing all of your outfits through the link ups and #Create28SummerLooks. You all inspire me so much!

Speaking of inspiration, today it's all about Pinterest! If you are like me, you have a zillion outfit Pins, but have recreated maybe a handful of them. Every once in awhile I love going through all of my Pins and finding "new" outfits I can recreate.

This outfit I Pinned when I "made" my denim vest...read all about that HERE. I wasn't sure about the denim vest until I hopped onto Pinterest! This is one of the first Pins that caught my eye where I thought, "Hey, I can do that one!"

Here's the lovely Julianne and my recreation ~



I love that she added the little pop of color with her handbag and I just happened to have a coral-colored purse as well. I think it's a great little detail. I bet she didn't MAKE her denim vest though! HA! :)


In the spring I did a Building A Wardrobe You Love series and in Part 2, I specifically shared how I used Pinterest to help me create outfits. Read the Pinterest post HERE. Or you can read the entire Building a Wardrobe You Love series HERE.

In addition to the tips I shared in the Pinterest post, here is an additional tip (especially if you are first getting started with using Pinterest for outfits) ~

~ Create separate seasonal "Inspiration" and "In My Closet" boards. Your inspiration boards will just be any looks that you love. This is where the majority of your outfit Pins will be. You can Pin lots of things here to get a sense of your style and to remember items you might like to purchase in the future. The "In My Closet" board is a board with Pins that you can recreate from items that you already have in your closet. 

This way, you don't get so caught up in trying to recreate all of your Pins exactly as you see them..which often means purchasing specific items--which can get a little pricey, especially if you buy items specifically to recreate ONE outfit and that aren't versatile pieces. Instead, you'll have an entire board you can recreate right from your closet and that you can reference whenever "you have nothing to wear." I may or may not take my iPad into my closet several times a week to help me get dressed. Just sayin'.

Here is an example of my Spring/Summer "Inspiration" board (roughly 500 Pins) ~

  10. Love your recreation of the Pinterest outfit. The pop of peach or coral is perfect in that cute little bag. Like your outfit better!! Not crazy about the pockets hanging below the length of the shorts. Seems wrong somehow. XO
