Pinspiration..Frugal Fashionista Edition

We all find inspiration somewhere. For me, I love looking for outfit ideas on Pinterest. Often when I buy a new piece of clothing (especially if it is unique), I go to Pinterest to look for ideas about how to wear it, then try and put my own spin on it.

I’ve decided to start sharing my outfit, and the inspiration photo:

I got this skirt at a local vintage shop in Athens over the winter, and am so excited I can finally wear it.

While today was a bit more casual than normal for me at work, I still tried to dress this look up a bit so I paired the top and blazer with slightly dressier jeans.

It seems like there are countless ‘budget-friendly’ fashion blogs out there, but so many of them provide items that aren’t realistically affordable, especially for college students. While I’m no longer in college, I like to keep my fashion realistically budget-friendly.

One of my favorite blogs, J’s Everyday Fashion, does just that. She takes inspiration photos and creates outfits from them, much like I do everyday. Like J, I think that reading magazines and looking at sites like Pinterest can sometimes make us forget that there are real women out there who enjoy REAL fashion. I, like most women, have a small budget for fashion each month, and I like to make it go a long way. Unlike what seems like every fashion blogger out there, I rewear clothing, a lot, and try to find ways to remix my closet to make each piece feel like new. Keep checking back for more outfits!
