In case you spent the whole weekend at the pool (color me jealous) and you missed the big news, this week I am doing the Pin to Real Life style challenge! Never heard of it before? That’s because I invented it. You’re welcome.

The first outfit I recreated was based on a look from the ridiculously stylish Blair of Atlantic-Pacific. I pinned this look because (a) it’s adorable, and (b) I had all the ingredients to do a spot-on re-enactment. I skipped the hat though, because hats aren’t really my thing. I wore this over the weekend to go out for pizza with friends and take a short walk around Monument Circle in downtown Indy. I probably never would have mixed this dress, jacket, and shoe together if I hadn’t pinned Blair’s look, so that’s a win for the Pin to Real Life style challenge!

If you try your own Pin to Real Life look this week, don’t forget to mention me! Send me your link and I’ll post it here on SRL.

  5. This is so weird, because I regularly get on Pinterest in the morning to help me get dressed, but just now, when I went to look to see which outfits I could create, I couldn’t really find any! I seem to pin lots of very simple outfits and specific items…what does that say? 😉

  6. DUDE DUDE DUDE I saw Blair’s reply to you on Twitter. She is too sweet. I love your pinspiration! You nailed it.

  7. That is impressive! What a great match and love how you have put your own edge to it!
    Great outfit!

    Love this idea for a challenge/linkup, and this is such a cute one to recreate! Love your dress and shoes. I do a Pinterest recreation post once a week, often outfits, sometimes crafts/recipes/etc. and have actually done a really similar one to this in the past!
    (And the rest are at:

    • Oh my gosh, that’s practically the same outfit! Crazy. Well if you do a Pinterest recreation post this week, be sure to let me know so I can add your link! Thanks Anne.

    I’m so bummed that I missed out on this whole challenge! Arg! Will you be doing it again any time soon?

    Also – I love this look! I’d never think to pair those items together either but it all came together so nicely!
