I wasn’t planning to jump back on my Frugal Fashion Friday train yet, but I changed my mind when I remembered about today’s Pin-spired link up with Sheaffer, Shay, and Mel. I love the idea of using Pinterest to inspire new outfits. Genius!
A month or so ago while browsing through Old Navy, I spotted a cute taupe sweater dress. I tried it on and liked it, but it wasn’t in the budget during December. I had been looking for a tunic or some longer sweaters to wear with my leggings, so I was excited to see they had something that wasn’t terribly expensive.
Once I saw the outfit, I scoped out Pinterest to see how they put the look together and was pleased with some of the images I found.
Pinterest just confirmed that it would probably be a good investment, but I just needed to wait it out a little bit. I stopped in earlier this month with a reward coupon in hand and finally made the purchase. So, here’s my version.
The outfit seemed a little off balance for my body type, so I decided to add my denim jacket and I liked it much better. Those skinny girls can get away with less on top, but not this girl!! 🙂
I wasn’t sure about whether to go for a scarf or necklace, but ultimately decided on the necklace since I already had a lot going on around my neck. I love the scarf in Pin #1 though, so perhaps I’ll go that route if I don’t wear it with my denim jacket. I wanted a pop of color so I chose my new mint earrings.
And if you needed any more convincing that I will never be a fashion blogger, I thought I’d try a different pose. Ha! I can hear my sister laughing already! 🙂
