Fashion Fun Part 2

On the last post, I mentioned I was late getting on the fashion love train. I read several fashion blogs that have inspired me to step out a bit and try some new things. It also helps ( a lot!!) to have a 16 yr. old fashionista as a daughter.



One blog that I like is Pinterest Told Me To. Her blog is about finding inspiration pics on Pinterest that she duplicates with things out of her own closet. She writes nice long, informative posts about fashion and includes links for the items she finds. It is great for people like me who don't go to the mall very often. (If I do go to the mall, it is usually just to look around Pottery Barn! I've never been a big clothes shopper, but have started to like it a little bit more.)

One trend this fall is military jackets. I found these Pinterest photos recently that I liked.










Here's a couple of photos I took of myself yesterday. I found this jacket at Kohls in the Junior Department. It was about $30. The scarf is from TJ Maxx.

Fashion can be a lot of fun. You can read more about how I came to enjoy playing around a little with fashion here. I do feel a little goofy taking my photo, but it does help me to see how something actually looks.

Have a great first week of October! I'm just starting to get my fall things out of storage and hope to post some photos next week.

  5. Kathy, you're so pretty you'd probably look good in anything, but it's fun to see you rocking the latest fashions! I'm trying to be a little more fashionable this Fall. I need to check out the Pinterest Told Me To blog you mention. Do you read Cyndi Spivey's blog? She does fashion and beauty for women over 40--such fun! (http://www.cyndispivey.com)

    1. Yes, I read her blog also! You are very kind, but I just post photos that turn out the best. lol I rarely shop at malls, but find the best deals at T.J. Maxx and places like that, as well as reading her blog. It has helped me out so much. I've never cared for clothes shopping at all.
