|Inspiration – Pinterest
Today’s post was inspired by something I pinned on Pinterest a few days ago. I like the grey/black striped dress better in the Pinterest photo, but I was trying to work with what I had in my closet. Which I’ve been trying to do MUCH more lately! We are getting ready to move about 1,000 miles south here in 3 months and need to save $$. 🙂

Instagram challenge today: it’s #buffaloplaidvestday 🙂
So, you know….
For weekend posts I decided to try something a little different since it’s hard to get 7 outfit posts done throughout the week. I’ve noticed other bloggers I follow will do installments of “what I wish I wore” or “Saturday deals.”
I’m super anxious for Spring to get here (as in yesterday!). I’ve been watching all my favorite haunts for deals on new spring clothes. I’ve made a few purchases in the last couple of weeks and for Saturday blog posts I thought I’d feature “what I wish I was wearing” outfits that I would love to wear now, but won’t be able to wear for awhile. If you’re headed out somewhere for spring break, maybe this will help with some outfit ideas as well!
Since I move to Florida in May, these will only be applicable for a few short months, but at that point I can try something new. 🙂
I have definitely learned a couple of things about myself this winter in regards to my wardrobe:
A) I love leggings. Hello comfort!
B) I’m not a huge fan of big sweater turtleneck type things (on myself).
I’ve purchased two chunky cowl/turtle neck-type sweaters this season and unfortunately haven’t worn either as much I expected. I love the way they look on women who are taller and more slender than myself, but I just feel like a big blob when I look at this picture. That being said, this sweater is ultra-soft and super comfy!
Now about those leggings. These leggings. They take all of those little areas on your legs that aren’t quite as fabulous as when you were 18, and they put them in the right spot. So lovely! I bought them in gray and black…. they are that amazing!
This vest has been a huge staple in my closet this past fall/winter. I wear it all the time. Sometimes I feel like I’ve maxed out the number of ways to style it… and then I come across an inspiration photo and here I am wearing it again!
My button-down shirt is a really pale pink color, but hard to see in the photo. I like the tiny bit of color it adds to the outfit.
Shop my look:
Yesterday’s work outfit was dedicated toward another IG challenge of mixing stripes + polka dots. I would have rather used a striped blazer over the polka dot shirt (but that wouldn’t work for my job), so I went with plaid pants instead. It was loud, but worked! 🙂
I wore this outfit yesterday in order to combine gold & silver for an Instagram challenge. I’m not one to follow “fashion rules” 100% (e.g. no white after labor day, no black and brown leather, etc.), but mixing gold and silver jewelry was a hard one for my brain to wrap around! I chose to use a gold-toned belt (with a silver buckle) and a silver-toned watch. I was willing to accept that mix. 🙂
Can you also see how tired I am in this picture LOL? Sorry about the shadows! It was still dark outside when the picture was taken. 😐
