Pinspiration

About a year ago my life was changed forever ~ I discovered the wonderful world of Pinterest! Before Pinterest I had massive "lookbooks", which were binders filled with pages clipped and torn from magazines of outfits, bags, accessories, shoes, hairstyles and such, that I used for my own inspiration and that of my clients. Now I just sit with my iPad and my Pinterest app and pin away on the more than forty boards I've created. Seriously one of the most brilliant ideas ever!

I get a lot of style ideas from Pinterest. I call it "pinspiration". An outfit will catch my eye, I'll pin it (of course), and then break it down. What about this outfit caught my eye? Colors? Texture? It's uniqueness? It's simplicity? And then I make it my own, meaning I take what I like about it and see what I have in my closet to create a version of it myself. Here is one of my pinspiration outfits and the actual pin that inspired it. I would have never thought of the gray/green combo! I think my version turned out pretty good! If you don't follow me on Pinterest you should! It will pinspire you! http://pinterest.com/mzsavvystyle/

Today I'm linking up with #YOLO Monday's and the ladies of Monday Mingle!

i love your version. i find myself thinking i might could actually put together something similar. i like the necklace treatment and how it fits so perfectly.

i have to say, i've just recently found the real-woman-fashion blog world, and i am inspired!

You re-created this look beautifully girl! And I am right there with ya in loving Pinterest as a source for all things inspirational. I can feel in a style rut (as I have a lot lately with the pregnancy) and Pinterest really helps me re-think items in my closet :)

You look gorgeous!

I'm still quite new using Pinterest but now that I have started to pin other people's outfit I can clearly see why is so amazing! I love your take on this outfit, I think you did a great job and I really like how you layered your necklaces! Stopping by from YOLO Monday!
