Pinterest Is the New Standard

Top: Target (shop)  |  Jeans: Loft  |  Boots: Dolce Vita via Macy's (see here for similar options)  |  Necklace: c/o Eclectic Ornaments

My outfit pics are so queued up that I don't even know what day I wore this outfit last week.  But it was worn, and that's the important part.

Anyway, how was your weekend?!  Mine was packed, but fun!  On Friday night we went to a Christmas party for our church and had some bombbbb Indian food.  (I frigging love Indian food.)  Then you might have seen on Instagram that on Saturday a couple friends and I hosted a baby shower for our friend Christine.  She's a wedding/event planner, so we knew we had to make her proud, and we did!  Not gonna lie, we were patting ourselves on the back for the shower looking like it ones we see on Pinterest.  Because, you know, the standard of how good a party is is whether or not it looks like Pinterest, right?  Ha.  Anyway, we never thought we could throw parties that looked (and tasted) like those--at least not with our budgets--but we shocked ourselves that we pulled it off without breaking the bank!  If I can get more pictures from a friend I'll be sure to post them.

Lastly, this scarf came in the mail from Eliza & Ro and it is SOOOOOO soft.  Just FYI in case anyone is looking for a striped scarf!

What'd you do this weekend?

  5. Love the colour of your sweater, looks great...think this colour may be missing from my wardrobe! I'm addicted to Pintrest so I know what you mean about being "Pintrest worthy"!

  9. Do they have that top in grey? I've been wanting a top just like that but in grey (althought I love this color too). I'll have to head to Target and check it out :)

  16. Cute outfit and sweater! I love the color. May have to make a trip to Target and pick one up for myself. ;) Is the sparkle subtle and something you can wear all winter?

    ReplyDelete
  17. I might be biased--I think you can wear sparkle all year round. :) There's sparkle all over, but I don't think it's too in-your-face. Like, you can't even tell in these pics that there's sparkle to it. I think it also depends on which color you get.

  21. Pinterest puts so much pressure on real life. Seriously, I pinned a photo of a baby dressed up like Frosty the Snowman and SERIOUSLY thought about having another baby, just to take that picture!!!! I am so glad Pinterest wasn't around when I planned my wedding- I would have been a total Bridezilla! I love your comfy outfit and the length of that sweater :)

  24. That baby shower looked awesome! I always have a perfect vision of how something will look (like, on Pinterest) but when it finally comes together, it looks... different. Oh well.

    Love this color on you!

  27. I love that cardigan and if my budget wasn't already gone (and its only the 10th! oops), I would go and buy it immediately.

  28. That top is so cute with the addition of the necklace, love it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have a question about layering. Do you buy your cardigans a size bigger? I find that if I buy it in my size I can fit a tank underneath, but nothing bigger like a button-up. I'm scared to go a size bigger because then it will be too big when I want to wear it with a tank or dress.

  30. Love this - this shade of blue really suits you. My weekend was packed with new puppy goodness (and lots of carpet cleaning...)

  31. Hey Nichole,

    No, I don't buy cardigans a size bigger, but usually there's enough stretch in my cardigans to layer over shirts without any problems.
