Ever since we bought our little fixer upper (ok, and pretty much months before then), I keep dreaming about all the farmhouse décor I can’t wait to get my hands on. I’m currently commissioning my father-in-law, a.k.a the master carpenter, to build us a pedestal stand for a round table that’s been in my hub’s family since, well, lord knows how long. But somewhere in between apartment moves in Houston, NY, LA, & back now to Houston – the poor thing lost its legs. I like to imagine they were picked up off the sidewalk by some wide-eyed creative in NY, who was just itching to fasten them to some makeshift table as their prized (and only) piece of furniture. But I digress.
This past week I found myself turning to Pinterest more often than usual grasping for a little style inspiration. You might recall from our recent moving debacle, that somewhere in West LA a woman (or man for that matter) is walking around wearing half my wardrobe. Hence, I’m having to come up with more creative ways to make what clothes I have left work overtime. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Pinterest is your friend. I personally find it to be the best place to get a quick dose of fashion inspo, and the best part is that I can do it at night after I put the little guy down and have all my new outfit ideas ready to reference the next morning. Bazinga.
I’m starting a new post where I rank my top 5 pins from Pinterest for the week, and show you how to make Pinterest work for you – whether it’s to help you get out of that style rut, or just some fun hair and beauty tips to try when you’re sick of the same old look.
This week, I found myself needing some style inspiration of my own, and Pinterest is hands down my go-to source to awaken my inner stylist. When I came across this white on white look complimented by a chic camel blazer, I knew I had to try it. Now, some might think a style rut calls for a full on shopping excursion, but that’s the beauty of styling and happens to be my one golden rule – use what you have first.
