I wanted this skirt so desperately, and after Mom (I mean...Santa) bought it for me, I was at a loss. How would I style it? It seemed too dressy to style it exactly like my other black maxi skirt. It's a bit too cold to wear just a t-shirt with it. What to do? What to do?
Well, first came a brain fart, and then came styler's block, and then came Sydney in a Pinterest carriage. I am not sure any of us remember how we dressed ourselves before Pinterest.
However, I am happy to report that I need Pinterest less often than I did in the past, but it sure has helped me make more sense of my closet. (Too bad it does not help my husband make more sense of my side of the closet. Is there an app for that?)
When the weather warms up, I think I will try a graphic tee with this skirt.
Feel free to send your ideas my way.
Shirt: Old Navy
Cardigan: The Limited (it's old, and it had a tie, but I cut it off.)
Skirt: Lauren Conrad via Kohl's
Flats: Steve Madden via DSW
Necklace: Okay, it's either Francesca's or The Limited.
I wanted you to see the fun backs of these flats.
Speaking of Pinterest, I wanted to discuss how I organize my style boards. I used to have one big style board, but that thing was such a disorganized dump that the frustration it caused me prevented any kind of pinspiration from taking place. And then I got organized. If you do not mind indulging me, I thought we could discuss how I cleaned up shop.
Look! I made a fun graphic!
2014 Closet Resolutions -- Pictures of outfits that I can recreate with items I want to make sure I'm wearing but don't wear enough. I delete pins once I've worn the outfit and just add a picture of how I wore it on my outfits board.
Warm Weather Fashion -- (for spring and summer) some of the pins, I put a tag in the description "with tights and boots" so that I can find it when I search my boards for winter looks with tights
Cool Weather Fashion -- (for fall and winter)
Color Combinations -- This board is my favorite. It's full of color combinations I want to try (ex: coral/blush and cobalt blue). If I've tried the combination, I might move the pin to another board like "Warm Weather Fashion" because I like the silhouette.
My Outfits -- all the looks from my blog
DIY Fashion -- Tutorials AND pictures of things I want to learn to make. For example, I really liked a checked dress that I want to figure out how to make one day.
Fashion Tips & Helpful Websites -- I include pictures of one item many ways in this category. I'm thinking about making a new board for those pins.
Closet Holes & Wants -- I pin items I'd like to add to my closet. I delete them once I've added them to my closet.
Geez, that's a lot of boards, but I've found that one big board for all of the stuff is not as easy to navigate.
