First “Fashion” Blog

Pinterest is such a large part of my social media world right now. It enters my conversation often, and has inspired a creative and crafty side.

I also have noticed that the posts about outfits on there can often be unattainable with my small clothing budget, so I want to start posting things from time to time to show cost-effective options or my personal spin on current style. Here is my first attempt:

I’ve seen some great mixes of floral and stripes on the web lately and when I saw the below scarf at a recent trip to H&M, I had to have it. For $12.95 it was a steal and provided a new pairing for a whole outfit that I’d never thought of, with only ONE new $13 item.

You will also notice that I’ve not used a blazer or boots with my fall combo (popular on blogs – Fall 2011). I love my Steve Madden silver flats and I’ve had my denim jacket for many, many years and it has never let’s me down. I won’t pair it with other denim, though.

Instead, I used a pair of Gap Stretch Corduroys with a flare leg in dark grey, which looks great with the pointy toe on the flats. Tie it all together with the aforementioned scarf and a striped 3/4 sleeve boatneck tee from Mossimo for target and I’m good to go. Toddler chasing or meeting a friend for coffee, this ensemble covers it all!

Because my bag lately is a DIAPER bag, I recommend adding a simple white clutch ($20 online). For me, I can slip it in the diaper bag, and pull it out when on the go. I see a bag purchase in my near future. So much for ONE item. HA!
