First off, thank you for checking out my blog! It’s just starting up, but I’m really excited to get it going. Although in my first post I made it a point to say that this would be a fashion blog (which it will) I should also say there will likely be a lot more than just fashion appearing in these pages. Since there’s a lot more things in the world that I love, I will likely be diving into several different topics along the way! I hope you’ll stick around for the ride 🙂
Today’s post (as promised via Instagram – @thedelilahblog), I will be looking at 5 Pinterest-Inspired styles that are my current favs! I have come to realize after years of pinning that it is important to pin things that contain pieces of clothing I already own. This is a good way to ensure that I don’t go broke trying to build a Pinterest wardrobe! Although I do still pin my fair share of “wish” items, I do try to find things that I can use to create my own similar outfits with things that I already have in my closet. With that being said, here are my 5 Pinterest Picks!
OUTFIT #1: Cool Summer Comfort
I have no idea what brands she is wearing, but in my closet I already had ripped denim shorts from American Eagle Outfitters, black crew-neck sweater from the Gap, black & gold sequin shoulder-strap purse from Urban Outfitters, sunglasses from Aldo Accessories, and my well-loved classic Converse sneakers. Right after this picture was taken, I went out and walked my puppy downtown Toronto – comfortable, cute, but still fashionable!
OUTFIT #2: Girly & Chic
I loved that as soon as I saw this outfit on Pinterest, I already knew I could wear basically exactly what she was wearing! Chambray button up shirt from Dynamite, lace shorts from… I don’t even remember…, brown leather purse from Italy. It’s a brand-less outfit, but comes together so nicely! Chic, clean, and playfully girly! Perfect for a casual dinner with your girls, or a picnic in the park with your man!
OUTFIT #3: Dress Up, Dress Down
This one was a bit more tricky for what I already had in my closet… I loved her hat, but the one that I had that was similar is (as you can see) more of a floppy beach hat! For the sake of the picture, I put it on, but if I were going to wear this outfit out I would go sans hat. I love this outfit because you feel like you’re dressing up when wearing a cute form-fitting dress, but you throw on a denim jacket and converse and you’re dressing back down to comfort again! It’s a versatile outfit that you can wear nearly anywhere and feel in place! Denim jacket from H&M, dress from Dynamite, hat from Forever 21, and white Converse sneakers (I think from Browns!)
OUTFIT #4: Highlight that BRIGHT
