Get Pin-Spired #8

Here we go, our 8th Pin-spired link up!
I am excited about this month's link up because we are getting out of summer and heading into Fall.
If you remember my last Pin-spired post, I posted about how my summer outfits were so boring because I mostly live in my swimsuit and I am in lazy bum mode since I am off school for the summer.
Since I am a teacher, I don't have to go to work and we have a pool in our backyard, I pretty much wear a bathing suit for 90% of the summer. The other 10% is shorts, tank tops & the occassional sundress.

Every year, a few weeks before school starts, I go through my closet.
I get rid of and donate clothes I haven't worn in a while and I also go through my closet to figure out what outfits I can put together for the school year.

This year, after I cleaned out my closet & checked out all my clothes, I jumped on Pinterest to get inspired to put together fun outfits for Back to School.

One thing I kept seeing over and over again, was adding a statement necklace to outfits. 
Most of the outfits that caught my eye & that I had pinned,  had a statement necklace.

I got a fun coral bubble-y statement necklace last year and I realized that I could use that exact same necklace to reproduce several different looks.

So, here are 5 outfits that I have Pinned & then recreated all using my favorite Coral Statement necklace that I got at Local Boutique almost a year ago.

Outfit #1 - White Crop Pants, Navy/White Striped Shirt, Navy Cardigan & Coral Statement Necklace.
Original Pin:

My recreation (My cardi & tank look black in this photo, but they are navy)
Navy Cardigan {here} // Tank Top {here} // White Crop Pants {here} // Sandals {here}

Pin #2  - Purple/Black/Coral
My recreation....I wore a purple-y maxi skirt (because I don't have that color pants)
Loved this color combo, with the pop of coral. It was fun!

  8. Love all your looks and may be pinning some of them too!! Is it too nosey to ask how tall you are? I love your heals, but I hate being taller than my hubby (I'm 5'11''). Someone needs to design a shoe line with short heals!! :-)

  10. I love the last outfit! How do you find outfits on pinterest with items you already have? Do you just search "green pants" or "statement necklace"? I have a hard time finding outfit ideas that include things I already own.
