I read an article a few weeks ago about a lady who spent 30 days living according to Pinterest’s Most Popular page – an interesting concept that maybe some time I’ll try when I’m a little bored or short on blog topics.
But, my favorite part of her article was when she was talking about clothing. She said all the Pinterest outfits were so cute, but when she tried them, she felt like she was wearing SO MANY CLOTHES! I started thinking about it, and that’s really true. Trendy Pinterest outfits really are all about the layers. So, I decided to create my own version of a Pinterest outfit, and see how many layers I could put on my body without looking absurd.
On top, we have a shirt, a vest, and a scarf – so, three. If I’d wanted to really go crazy, I could have added a statement necklace, but the scarf was just a little too blousy for that. On bottom, I have jeans, boot socks, and then boots, of course. If I were basic, I would not have worn my cowboy boots – they’re not really the ideal boot sock boots. But, I’m not and I prefer a little variation in my looks, so I wore what I wanted.
The one thing I’m doing here that’s not very Pinterest-y is wearing a simple gold cuff. Pinterest girls would have multiple bangles, a watch, and who knows what else going on. But for my real life, the cuff was much more practical.
So what do you think? Pinterest worthy, or not enough layers? Would you wear an outfit like this – what spins would you put on it?
(Oh, and side note, my puffy vest – which I love – is from Belk. If you snag one, you can match me and the two senior citizens I’ve seen wearing the exact same one…)
