Pinspiration, #1

I've seen multiple bloggers do these sort of posts all over the place, but I have to say Danielle's are always my favorite.. and maybe I'm a bit biased because she's one of my favorites, but.. oh well! But, I love the idea of it all, so I've decided to start a little series.. look at that two series start-ups in one week!

I get a lot of my ideas for outfits from Pinterest and other bloggers. I love the thrill of seeing an outfit I love and realizing I have all of the pieces to recreate that particular outfit in somewhat of a similar way without having to spend a dime. It's also fun just getting ideas for how to wear my clothes.. because it's so overwhelming sometimes to go into my closet and try and figure out what I'm going to wear. Does anyone else have that problem? I'm sure I'm quite at home here with all of you, because you all love clothes just as much as I do.

So, here it is.. my first official Pinspiration. I saw this a few days ago, repinned it pretty automatically because I'm obsessed with chambrays.. guh, do you guys get tired of seeing my chambray? I'm so sorry, but it is sooo easy to wear! I didn't realize it at first, but I had a skirt that kind of reminded me of the one in the picture, I honestly hadn't worn it in years, but it is one of my favorite skirts -- the pattern is awesome!


Can I just say I love this outfit? I felt comfortable all day, despite wearing a skirt that's semi-short, in my opinion. Plus, it gives me another chance to remix my own wardrobe.. because I've had all of these pieces for quite awhile. I may have cheated and worn flat sandals (that look pretty identical to these wedges) to school.. only because I wanted to be able to walk at a reasonable rate; I'm a pokey walker in anything with somewhat of a heel..even if it is a wedge. But, I switched over for pictures and dinner with the boy. 

Oh, the reason I'm giving y'all the thumbs up in the last photo.. would be because this is my very first post with my Aggie ring on muh finger! And us Aggies, we gig 'em (which is indicated by the thumbs up) Whoop! I'm so in love with it, and yes, I put my right hand up on the steering wheel just so I can admire it when I drive, I'm not obsessed or anything.. haha. 

How about you guys? Where do you get your inspiration from for new outfits?

Rant for the day: Pinterest has recently made me very annoyed.. I was invited to one of those group pin board thingies. WHAT THE HECK DID I GET MYSELF INTO?! Seriously, y'all, the board is blowing up my pinterest feed and it's basically all I ever see. I've been trying for going on four days now to get off of the board, but there are 1400 members, and you have to scroll through a list of ALL of them to find yourself. Not to mention, the page freezes up and then you have to start ALLLLL OVER. I'm bound and determined to remove myself from the board, but Pinterest needs to find a new way to allow people to remove themselves from group boards. It's way too difficult the way they have it now. I emailed them, and got a computer/generic response.. I'm so not a happy camper. :(


  1. You look adorable. Love those wedges. I need a good pair for this summer. And I've had every issue in the book with pinterest. So frustrating.

  2. I love your skirt, it looks like such a unique pattern!

    My stepsister is an Aggie. She wore her Aggie jersey (called it a sweatshirt ;) ) when we we out one day in Sydney and she got stopped by another former Texas A&M student.

    1. What a small world! That is so awesome! I've heard stories about Aggies going abroad before and being stopped by other Aggies in the craziest places. I love the network we have here. :)

      and thank you!

  3. You totally rocked this outfit. I love getting ideas from Pinterest, and it's even better when you have all the pieces in your closet.

    Those group boards really are annoying. I hope you get taken off soon! :-)

  4. Great skirt! The pattern and colors are so pretty!

  5. I love this outfit! I definitely get a lot of inspiration from Pinterest/other bloggers. I love when I see something that I own styled in a way I have never thought of! Just such a simple way to make me happy :-)

  6. Oh I love everything about this outfit! (No really, the skirt, the top, the shoes, there ya go, everything!) I like using pinterest to help me too, sometimes I feel like I'm just standing in front of my closet staring for ages, and it's definitely nice to just get an idea from somebody else.

  7. love that outfit. you look great
    stopping by from the transatlantic blonde link up

  8. kristina! this is one of my favorite outfits of all time on you!! i can't even believe how similar those skirts are. your shoes are to. die. for! for some reason, i know that this outfit would look really awful on me, even though the pieces are all relatively easy.

    so i just scrolled to see the print on the skirt again and decided that i like your version better than the original. :x

  9. That skirt pattern is really cute. I've never seen the pinterest outfit inspiration posts, I like it! I'm excited to see more that you do.

  10. Really good likeness, love that skirt!

  13. Love the skirt and it looks perfect with the chambray top! :)

  14. Super cute outfit! I do the same thing - I am constantly referencing outfits I see on pinterest and/or other bloggers to help me maximize my own wardrobe. You do your pinspiration proud!

  15. That is a really great copy-cat look! Did you try clicking on the board, then edit board, and then there is a "leave" button next to your name. If you don't want to scroll just do Ctrl+F and then your name and it will find you :)

  16. Awww! You're one of my favorites as well :)
    I love love love this skirt. I love your hair. I love your face.
    I repinned this outfit form you the other day, cause I was like I HAVE TO HAVE THAT SKIRT. But it's sold out. BOOO. I don't even know if an A-line skirt would even look okay on me. But hey it looks amazing on you!!

  17. Great skirt. Loving your recreation. Visiting from the link up. I would love it if you stopped by my blog and said hi.


  18. lovely interpretation of your inspiration!

  19. this is such a cute post- i love the idea of recreating things you find on pinterest (coming from the gal that has about 1000 DIY pins and did not attempt even one.) And I think you really nailed this outfit- they look almost identical. I love how chambray shirts pretty much go with everything- i love what it does to your skirt. And I'm totally the same in anything that's not a flat haha yay for stepping outside your comfort zone!

  20. I love your pinspired outfit! I used to have that skirt and gave it away because it was so short but now I'm kinda sad I did! Love everything about how you styled this!
