Living on Inspiration






Sometimes all you need is a bit of inspiration from somewhere…anywhere before you take a look at your closet! This is when I become super-duper thankful for Pinterest & blogs. Daily doses of inspiration for me!

#22 of the 30×30 Challenge

As I wind this challenge down, I get more inspired. I know this outfit isn’t rocket science, but I never would have put the top and skirt together and I never would have tossed a belt into the mix. So, once again, bravo to whoever came up with the brilliant 30×30. I will be forever grateful.

I have 2 more weeks before I head to the states for Allison’s wedding and then to visit my family for a few weeks after that. Until then, I’m soaking up the sun by the pool, sleeping in, and craving smoothies, any flavor…so this weekend I will be collecting fruits galore! What are your favorite smoothie flavors and/or recipes??

#13 of the 30×30 Challenge

I originally planned on not shopping at all during this challenge. But, who can pass up a stunning, $7 Ann Taylor belt. (Unfortunately, it hasn’t quite dropped to $7 online) Not me, I didn’t even have to think twice. I might even wear it for the next 15 outfits. Just a fair warning.

We were drenched in sun the whole time mom was here. I always burn right away and get extremely red, lobster like. Then it chills out. I have a super nice base now. We’ll see how long I can continue covering my ghost like complexion.

#5 – My Pinspiration for this outfit.

I’ve seen this color combo all over Pinterest and the blog world recently, and I love it! They compliment each other so well. Some girls have added a splash of orange, which I might have to try out next time.

And then there’s my mint watch… Several months ago, through some blog stalking, I found this Target watch.I fell in love, instantly. Unfortunately, they are not available online. I remember zooming to the nearest Target ASAP and snatching one up. It’s cute & cheap = awesome. :)

Thanks for stopping by! :)
