get pin-spired #1

For a while now I have been doing "Pinned There, Done That" posts, but n the 1st of every month I'm going to be doing a special "Pinned There, Done That" post call Get Pin-spired.  I'll be joining in with The Larson Lingo (one of my favorite blogs), Mix and Match Mama (the Bachelor's-Sean Lowe's sister), and Pinterest Told Me To (a pinterest fashion blog) in the "Get-Pinspired" Linky.  I will be posting outfits I recreated from my own closet from inspiration that I found on Pinterest. 
First up.....Red, Black & Leopard.  I've worn my red jeans with a black top before but I had never paired it with leopard scarf.  Why in the world had I not thought of that?? I have leopard shoes too, but the print was a little different from my scarf, so I stuck with black flats for this outfit. 
The left picture Pinterest inpiration......it is a sleeve of a sweater turned into a leg warmer.  Genius huh?  Well, I didn't have a sweater I wanted to cut up, so I just cut off the top of some of Matt's old socks and made some cream leg warmers to go with this outfit!! Sadly I didn't get a close-up picture, but you can still kind of see them!!
I always wear this tan sweater with a scarf.  I had never thought to put a vest over it, but I think it turned out pretty cute.  And of course I love the leopard shoes as an accent!!
This was my favorite Pin-spired outfit.  I would have never though to put stripes with leopard.  And I wouldn't have even put the grey sweater with it either.  I thought she looked super cute, so I must have looked cute too! Ha!!
The last outfit I create was inspired by a few different pins.  Printed jeans are all over the place.  I didn't think I was brave enough to do them until I kept seeing lighter colored (not so crazy) printed jeans.  I found these mint green and grey jeggings at Kohl's.  I had a sweater that I bought before Christmas that I hadn't worn, so I exchanged it for something I would wear!!
So there you have it.  I was able to create 5 new outfits with things I already had in my closet.  And I have to say I had alot of fun changing up my wardrobe a little bit.  I hope to be back next month with more fun Pin-spired outfits. 

If you are new around here, sit back and stay awhile.
I normally blog my life as a stay at home mom with lots of pictures of my sweet boy!!
Feel free to follow along!!
Thanks for stopping by!!

1. I love the red skinnies with with leopard scarf.

2. I think your stripes and leapard pairing is absolute perfection, and I never would have thought to put it together either.

3. I think you totally pulled off the print leggings.
