How to Shop your Closet-Pinterest Inspiration

Hi, My name is Tori and I am a Pinterest addict. Who is with me? I am always finding inspiration for clothes, house decor, food, or DIY (not sure why I ever try those tho--epic fails!). I love my style board and wish I had all those clothes in my closet--but alas, I can neither find them all or afford them even if I could!

I am going to start a new series, that I will do a couple times a month, where I will take a outfit off Pinterest and try to re-create it with things I already own in my closet!

This time I took a little bit of an edgy look and made it work for me. I am so not a bada**, but really wish I was--so this look is perfect! I love that this blazer is such a classic staple piece, but it has the cool leopard details and is paired with a vintage style T-shirt and funky jewelry to give it a much more dressed down look. 

     INSPIRATION                                   MY TAKE

{Booties: Old Navy} {Jeans: American Eagle Jean Style} {Blazer: Chic Nova}
(Shirt: Charlotte Russe} {Watch: Michael Kors} {Jewelry: assorted collection of older pieces}

We are having a polar vortex here in Ohio, so opted out of the super cute-but very chilly looking shorts, and instead went with boyfriend jeans. I like the funky look the booties give to the outfit and I paired it with a simple loose Oxblood colored t-shirt. 

Taking things I already own--aka not spending more money (my hubby loves that too) and remixing them into new outfits is so fun and a total creative outlet. I would never have thought to pair this all together, and have actually worn all these items, multiple times, but with totally different looks. I love that Pinterest gave me this idea and I could make it my own. In the summer--and after many many workouts I am planning to do ha--I may even try it all paired with shorts and cute little flip-flops!

  3. Such a cute look! I love finding inspiration from outfits on Pinterest. It doesn't have to be an exact copy, sometimes just the color scheme of the outfit inspires ideas!

  4. Love the leopard cuffs on the blazer!!! And I wish I wasn't so short...boyfriend jeans make me look even shorter than the 5 feet that I am!! And now I'm headed to browse some pinterest on my end to get me through the ice storm!!


  5. LOVE this look doll! I too am obsessed with Pinterest! At last count, I think my fashion board was nearing 2000 pins! LOL! Some of course are duplicates. But there are plenty of pins there for some MAJOR inspiration!! I love how you paired the booties with the jeans. I have yet to try pairing some of mine like that. The look is totes adorbs!!!

  6. This is so cute! I love getting inspiration from pinterest! Love your take on it!

  9. Your boyfriend jeans are ripped to perfection--did you buy them distressed or wear them out yourself? I love Pinterest as well, but sometimes I feel like I pin too many things and never actually use the inspiration in reality. I love how you are translating the looks into everyday outfits.



Thank you all so much for you amazing comments and for stopping by the blog--it means the world to me. I do my very best to reply to every comment by e-mail :) Have an awesome day!
