Get Pin-Spired #5

How is it June tomorrow?!?!
If you are new here, the idea of the link up is to use Pinterest to inspire your outfits.
(Hence the name Pin-Spired)
See if you can re-create them.
Take pics of your outfit.
Every 1st of the month, we will have a linky party for you to link up your outfits from the past month.
 I have FOUR Pin-spired outfits this month.

Outfit #1Black Maxi Dress with Coral Statement Necklace
Here is the pin:
Here is my take on it (this is what I wore to Brittany's Bridal Shower earlier this month)
I have been seeing maxi dresses allllll over Pinterest (and while shopping) & I finally got one! 
Love, love, love.  So comfy. And, LONG enough for me! I am 5'9, so finding dresses long enough is tricky, but this dress is great.
I got mine {here} I want to get the teal color also!

Outfit #2 Coral, Teal & a Cardigan (that you tie):
Here is the pin:
 I saw this pin & was so excited because I had ALL the pieces! Instead of wearing brown boots, I wore brown sandals (because it isn't boot weather anymore here in California)
It is the outfit I wore when we rode our cruisers downtown for dinner a few weekends ago.
LOVE my cropped jeans. Got them {here}  Sandals {here}
  Close ups of the necklace & sweater:
Necklace {here} // Tank {here} //  Cardigan {here}
Really liked this color combo! And, I liked tying my cardigan. Normally, I don't tie this cardigan when I wear it, but I am glad I did! Totally love this outfit!

Outfit #3 Coral Striped Dress
Here is the pin:
I saw this dress & knew I had to have it! I love how she paired it with black heels. 
I added a jean jacket because it was chilly. LOVE this dress. Comfortable, flattering & under $30!

Giveaway #2 -  My Mom Snaps  Children's Book
 What does Mom do while her little ones explore the world around them? She snaps, of course. Mom stands by with her camera while kids enjoy everything from splashing in the pool and learning to ride a bike to baking a cake and snuggling up to sleep. Bright colors, cheerful illustrations and playful rhymes engage kids who’ve ever felt they’re being followed by the mom-arazzi. What's more, in heartwarming verse, Mom Snaps reveals the endearing reason why Mom snaps so much: 
To preserve childhood's sweet memories for a lifetime.

I bought this book for my girls & they love (and so do I!)

Giveaway #5 - A Simple Kind of Love
Beth has a fun etsy shop filled with all kinds of handmade goodies from scrappy banners, buntings, signs and my favorite...Date Jars!
This date jar has 52 dates in it. There is one date per week for an entire year!
Beth came up with the idea when she wanted to spend time with her husband but didn't have a whole lot of money for date nights out. These dates are geared toward spending quality time together rather than on spending money. Some dates do require a little creativity. All dates are definitely do-able. Some of the dates are "at home dates," while the others are out of the house..

The dates come already printed on paper in a silver craft jar. This jar is great for both dating and married couples! It would make a great gift for a bride and groom or just any couple looking for money saving, date night ideas!
Beth is giving away a date jar to one lucky winner!
