Fashion Action! No 1

If you've been following me on Facebook you may have noticed that I came up with a crazy idea to do just a bit more of the whole Pinterest thing and challenge myself to try out some of the outfits and styles that I've been posting on Pinterest lately. I love a good outfit with perfectly coordinated accessories and a lovely bag.... ahhh the makings of happiness! So for my personal pinterest challenge I'm taking one photo that I've pinned to my board Fashion Forwarddd and will try at least one a week. If it sucks I'll share it or if it's great I'll share it. It all goes.

Feel free to join in and then leave me a comment with a link of what you tried out! Or post your pic on my Facebook page so I can see it there too!

Alright well here we go for round one. 

I thought I would start relatively simply, like this girl's outfit. Button up woven with a loose but still trendy sweater pulled over top, skinny jeans, and toms. Easy enough right?

And here's my take! Oh heck yes. Going back to the MySpace mirror picture days! But it works out! I used what I had already so that I wouldn't have to run out and buy anything for the outfit. The button down woven I've had since I worked at Hollister and I'm personally a huge fan of white so I put this white sweater from Wet Seal. A dark pair of Hollister skinnies and some knock off Tom's that I got from Rue21 for $4 dollars and VIOLA!

Perfect teaching outfit too. Not tight or revealing and besides... my glasses make it totally scholarly. Yay.

Oh what a happy day!

I really need to paint my nails. Don't look at them. Icky.

But wait! There's more! Check out my great bag! I bought it at JCPenney's! I had a $10.00 off reward card and a $10.00 off a purchase of $25.00. This bag was 27.99. Holla! I paid only $8.00 dollars after taxes! And it makes me feel very scholarly. All I need is my moleskin notebook and fountain pen and I'm practically the next Hemingway.

Alright so it's you're turn to tell me. Hit or miss? What outfits have you been assembling for fall and do you still take lame pictures of yourself in your mirror?


  1. Love the structured bag, especially the price! Visiting from the Junk House & looking forward to looking around. Thanks for using my social media icons, YAY, they look fab (not that I'm biased)! Let me know if you want your button posted HERE, under thank you.
