September Pinned It, Spinned It: Week Two


The second week of Pinned It, Spinned It was definitely more fun for me than the first. I don’t know why, it just was. I loved the looks of the pins and I was able to recreate them in some form or version of my own.

On Monday, it was my birthday. I know, I know, blah, blah, you are all tired of hearing about it. I however, chose to wear a different beautiful outfit that was featured already on the blog last week. Don’t believe me? I wrote a whole post about Holy Chic: Fabulous and Forty.

On Tuesday, I definitely got back into the swing of things doing this challenge. I chose to take some liberty with the striped skirt pin and pair a polka dot top with it and bring in accents of neon pink with my shoes and necklace. I loved this outfit and waited a long time to wear it! I bought the skirt last year and then went to try it on and the zipper broke. It was only a couple of weeks ago that I took it to the tailor and had the zipper replaced.
 

On Wednesday, I had the perfect dress and cardigan to wear for this day. I really matched the pin pretty much but decided to put my spin on it by adding leopard accents. This was a lot of fun and I also really enjoyed sharing all of the looks I have tried so far with this dress. I hope I can also give some of you some ideas on how to wear your clothing multiple ways!


On Thursday, I totally spinned the pin. I don’t own a white dress and I am okay with that! But, in order to do this challenge, I needed something so I turned to my favorite teal dress and put a white cardigan over it. I was very pleased with my version as well!

On Friday, I had the most fun. I have actually worn an outfit like this before-it was with a non collared shirt and sandals. I liked this version too though and had a lot of fun trying to recreate her exact look.

 

Now that I think about it, I think this last week was so much fun because I really enjoyed everything that I wore! You know a lot of the things that I wore were older and I don’t think anything I wore was purchased this year with the exception of Friday’s chambray shirt. I tend to stick with classic styles so I can wear my clothes for longer than a season.

Are any of you doing any clothing challenges this month? This has been my favorite probably so far since it is really left to us to either copy or interpret the Pinterest-inspired look differently! 

Thanks for reading and following along with me!

  2. I'm loving these renditions, discovered it on your instagram a few days ago I thought I should check it out! Especially loving the last outfit! My challenge for this month is to try and incorporate more blazers into my outfits, since that's something I never do and it would be useful when Detroit starts to cool down!
