Pinterest Obsessed

I am happy to say that I am not the only one obsessed with Pinterest. Meet Sheaffer, the very talented blogger of Pinterest Told Me To. She’s everything that I am not as a blogger, a great writer, super entertaining and witty. We met a couple of weeks ago after Melanie, at The Big Mama Blog, kindly featured us. So, we’ve teamed up for today’s post. Firstly, I’ve posted a couple of my favorite outfits of hers for your viewing pleasure. I love how she does her own rendition of the Pinterest picture with the scarves and belts from her own closet, click the pictures to go to the posts! If you want some fun ideas about how to wear a scarf she’s got some here. I’ve copied her concept with a leather leggings outfit below.

Love this outfit too! Below is an excerpt from her blog. It had me cracking up. Click here for full post.

“Oh…before going on….I must throw out a disclaimer. The picture on the right was taken in front of an antique mirror that has etching on top. Don’t worry, Pinterest didn’t tell me to wear some sort of weird headdress. However, if Pinterest does tell me to wear some sort of headdress in the future, I can’t promise you I won’t.She’s definitely the boss in our relationship. She bosses me, and I listen.

I love these tailored jeans she purchased at GAP Outlet, and they were on sale! Sometimes when you see pins it’s hard to know if the outfit would actually look good on, and she takes the guess work out of it while including the links to purchase! Click here for full post. Check her out on her out on Facebook and Pinterest.

Here’s my Pinterest Told Me To inspired look. Please forgive, I am not as technologically savvy as Sheaffer, but I promise the picture on the left is from my C. Style Pinboard. I purchased these leather leggings from Club Monaco after a friend texted me a picture of them in the store. I went to Club Monaco that day. Yes, I’m a wee bit crazy. For this reason I knew I wanted a really dynamo outfit to go along with them. Inspired by Pinterest Told Me To, I typed leather pants into the search bar at Pinterest and found this outfit. I hope you like my rendition.

    Great outfit Carly and I love the “extras” you hired in the background of the second pic!

    Love your blog AND love Sheaffer’s blog… my husband however, doesn’t. Thanks to both of you talented ladies, I’ve bought more “must haves” this fall than ever 🙂

  3. Carly – I cannot get over how cute your outfit is!!!! You would never know you were a mama of 2 little ones. (I have that same outfit pinned, but I hadn’t yet figured out how to re-create it.) Sadly, I don’t own any leather pants. Might have to check out those Club Monaco leggings for myself!
    Thanks soooooooooo much for posting with me today! 🙂

    Found you from pinteresttoldmeto. Wow!!!! If I walked by you on the street and you were wearing that outfit I would totally eyeball you several times. Probably even stare. Such. A. Perfect. Outfit. One of my besties wore leather leggings (from zara I think) recently and I loooooved it and your look is even better (sorry, bestie whose name I won’t mention for fear of hurting said besties feelings)! So I wish I could hate you for how cute you look but since Sheaffer digs you I think I will too! Glad to have found a new blog to check out!

    Hi Carly,

    I am going back thru all previous post that I missed b/c I hadn’t found out about you yet.
    I love your blog, it is simple and straightforward. I went to the Pinterest blog you mentioned and was overwhelmed. There is so much going on. I don’t know where to go or what tap to click on!
    You are doing great!!
