I tell ya, the fashion game on Pinterest is on-point. My feed is constantly full of stylish ladies in oversized shades and perfectly-mixed patterns. I’ve repinned huuuundreds of outfit ideas with the intention of recreating these fab outfits one day. I haven’t really followed through on that though — because, hello, it’s way more fun (and easier) to just admire the photos than to actually dig through my closet and assemble a new outfit!
Well, today is the day I’m bringing my favorite pinned outfits to life. I’m recreating 4 outfits from my Pinterest board using items I already own. Today’s post was inspired by my shiny new HP x360 convertible PC, which connects me to Pinterest (and all my other top stylish sites) in 4 different modes: laptop, tablet, tent, and stand mode. This computer literally bends all the rules — it’s such a fun toy, especially for a digitally-obsessed person like myself!
Now settle in for the Pinterest-inspired fashion show…
Outfit 1: Casual Converse outfit
I’ve had this pair of Converse sneakers for years — they’re so comfortable and I like the slightly hipster vibe they give off. I needed a new way to wear them though and was happy to find this pin of Katie Did What. What a cute, cool outfit!
Outfit 2: Cheerful business casual
First off, if you’re not already following J’s Everyday Fashion, you’re missing out. She has so many outfit ideas for real women, on real budgets. Case and point: this cute polka dotted outfit. It includes items we all own: black skinnies, a great blouse, and a colorful cardi.
Outfit #3: Layered gingham
Behold: the gingham button down. A shirt truly loved by all. For being such a bold pattern, this shirt is SO versatile. I love all the layering that is happening on this Stella & Dot Instagram pic — layered tops, layered necklaces. And adorable flats!
Outfit #4: Layered maxi dress
I cannot thank Pinterest and Kendi Everyday enough for this outfit idea! I’m wearing a summer maxi dress from LOFT — with a huge cut out in the back (last seen here). Everything about it screams summer! But Kendi shows us how to make it work for winter with a thick knitted scarf, sweater, and tall boots.
So there you have it! 4 brand new outfits, all assembled with items I own but have never previously worn together. I’d call this little experiment a success! Here they all are together — which outfit would you wear?
Thanks to HP for making searching through my endless pins so easy — having a touchscreen tablet is a game changer. I also loved being able to edit this post in Stand mode, while lounging on the couch and listening to music. HP continues to #bendtherules while on the road with Meghan Trainor’s “The Bass Tour.” You can follow along with the Meghan Trainor tour by watching Behind The Scenes episodes or following @HP for updates!
