pin-spired #2

I'm linking up with Mel, Shay, & Sheaffer, to post a few outfits that I created this month using clothes I already had in my closet!!  
Here are the three outfits I created this month.  Looks like I had a chambray theme going on!!

Outfit #1: Chambray, Black & Brown
Chambray Shirt: Ross // Black Leggings: Old Navy //  Brown Boots: Steve Madden Bangles: Rue 21 // Necklace:  Heather's Happys // Watch:  Michael Kors  
Here is a closer look at the necklace.  It says K (heart) M and underneath it says October 11, 2008 (our anniversary).  I actually won this necklace on a Giveaway from Mel's blog!!

I'm pretty sure we have all seen this pin floating around Pinterest.  This was the pin that actually inspired me to get a chambray shirt.  I just loved how it looked with black skinnies and brown boots. However the one I'm wearing in the pictures is from probably 5 years ago.  I bought it long before chambray was in style and it had actually in my garage sale closet for quite a while. I was digging through stuff I was going to sale to see if there was anything I could use to recreate outfits and this little beauty was saved and brought back to my closet!! 

Outfit #2: Mustard & Chambray

Cardigan: Forever 21 //  Shirt: Ross //  Skinny Jeans: Paige (Saks Off 5th) Boots: Steve Madden // Bangles: Rue 21 // Watch: Michael Kors

I have had this outfit pinned forever and I just now got around to putting it together.  I tried it with a white shirt, but it was a little to harsh contrast for me so I paired it with a teeny tiny white and navy pinstripe shirt.  It almost looks like a chambray shirt in the picture, but if you look closely it's stripes.  I put on some cute brown heels, and they looked cute, but I just couldn't pull them off.  I never wear heels.  I used to teach Kindergarten so they just aren't practical to wear to school.  And now I'm a stay at home mom......definitely not practical to wear around the house.  The only time I would wear heels would be at church, but I work during the 2nd hour at church in the preschool every Sunday, so I have to have comfy shoes.  I thought my brown boots still looked pretty cute with this outfit. 

Outfit #3: Purple & Leopard
Cardigan: Old Navy //  Chambray Shirt: Rue 21 // Black Skinnies:  Nine West (Ross) // Boots:  Steve Madden // Scarf: Marshall's // Bangles: Rue 21 // Watch: Michael Kors

Last weekend when I was at Dot Mom, my friend wore purple and leopard together and it totally reminded me of this pin that I had pinned.  I immediately put this outfit together and wore it to church the next day!! It's obviously not exactly like the pin, but I love how the leopard and purple took together in my outfit!!

So there you have it!! 
I made 3 new outfits this month without setting foot in a store!!  
I can't wait to see all the outfits you created.  I love getting ideas from others Pin-spired posts!!
