If you’re a regular here, welcome back! So glad you keep coming around!
If you are new here (sooo many of you found the blog just this week thanks to the Erin Condren Life Planner giveaway), I would like to welcome you to a regular ol’ Friday at Pinterest Told Me To!
Take off your coat and stay while! We’re glad to have you!

You can also still enter the J. Hilburn giveaway for Father’s Day HERE.
Every Friday I do an OBSESSIONS post where I highlight things that, you guessed it,
I’m obsessed with.
Mostly I highlight clothes, but I’ve also been known to highlight beauty products and food!
I thought for the newcomers that it would be fun to give a simple introduction to some of our favorite things over here at Pinterest Told Me To.
I’m going to do so by featuring a round up of my 3 MUST HAVE items.
If you are a regular around here and already have some (or all!) of these items,
Must Have Item in June
You know I am OF COURSE going to lead with newest addition to my closet –
I’ve had it since last Friday.
Only 7 days.
And yet I’ve worn it 3 times already.
It’s like when you first start dating a boy and you can’t get enough and you want to see him all the time. Yep, that’s me with this jacket. Can’t get enough.
Must Have Item in April
The 2nd MUST HAVE item I found after starting this blog was the famous putty wedges.
You newbies better listen up!!!
I think it was back in April that I found them, and my love for them is even stronger today. 🙂
They are comfy as all get out AND they are just as sassy.
An unlikely combination that makes for the perfect wedge.
Sooooo many of you have bought them for yourselves that you now
totally understand my love for them.
If you have them, you get it.
I get more e-mails about these shoes than about any other item that I’ve ever featured. And the second I got this particular e-mail a couple of weeks ago, I knew it was too good not to share.
Here is the e-mail:
So I have been reading your blog for about six months now. I had the amazing pleasure of being put on bed rest for the end of my pregnancy and found your blog and a tiny bit of sanity.
Anyways, I have been reading about “the SHOES” and have been stalking them.
Hopefully this does not come across as a crazy person email, but I wanted to make sure I shared my foot joy with you. Thank you for the laughs every morning and some serious inspiration!
DID YOU HEAR THAT PEOPLE?
SHE WORE HER WEDGES FOR 10 HOURS IN A ROW.
HOLDING A 5 MONTH OLD.
AT THE ZOO.
Now THAT is a convincing endorsement.
All of you doubters out there should stop with the doubting already. 🙂
These truly are the most comfortable wedge you have ever or will ever wear.
It’s purely a bonus that they also happen to be DARLING and go with everything.
Click HERE for the wedges.
And here is Elizabeth rockin’ the wedges at the zoo!
And thank you Elizabeth for taking the time to write me!
I love getting e-mails from you ladies!
MUST HAVE ITEM in November
Click HERE to see all my past posts featuring these boots.
Click HERE for the boots.
Not many sizes left at all, and they don’t even have my color. 🙁
I am crossing my fingers that they return this year.
I had never had a wedge boot until this year, and I LOVED them.
I was also loving that mine were the light brown (cognac) color. They provided the perfect contrast to just about anything I put on.
SERIOUSLY hope they bring them back.
I’m telling you, I am going to reserve “MUST HAVE” for like top like 5% of items I highlight.
Which mean you might only see this alert 6 or so times a year.
There are other things that fall in the top 10% that I also speak about frequently.
My fabulous oatmeal blazer (click HERE for all blazer posts) my military jacket (not available anymore), my neutral TOMS, my sequin bracelets (click HERE to read my bracelet posts) and my Kimberly necklace are my other tip top items and I ADORE them all.
I should say that should any of the winners not be able to fullfill their duties, the first runner up will step up and claim the crown of MUST HAVE.
The FIRST RUNNER UP for MUST HAVE ITEM is definitely the Kimberly Necklace.
To be honest, the only reason it didn’t make it to the MUST HAVE list is because it seems kind of expensive for a necklace. I however think it’s been TOTALLY worth it.
It is without a doubt my go to necklace that I find myself grabbing again and again and again.
It is a total outfit maker.
And here is the Kimberly Necklace in one of my Top 3 favorite outfits I’ve recreated.
And luck you guys, Stella and Dot is having a promotion right now!
Click HERE to shop Stella and Dot and earn dot dollars!
And if you do place an order, make sure you enter “Sheaffer Sims” for your trunk show hostess.
I have trunk shows open 3 weeks of every month. I do get jewelry credits if orders are placed, so please make sure you enter me as your hostess!
(And lucky for you guys…when I do get credits, I always buy something to give away on this blog. I’ve got a contest coming up in the next couple of weeks with 2 Stella and Dot items that I purchased in this way!)
Okay…that’s it for the MUST HAVE round up.
Now it’s time for a quick edition of “Dear Sheaffer”.
I have a request. I like heels and wedges (yes I own several pairs), but I love wearing flats for my job. I’ve been searching high and low for a perfect nude flat. I thought if anyone could find them, Sheaffer could. Would you be so kind as to help a girl out??
I found 3 choices for you, and all are Sam Edelman.
The popular Sam Edelman Felicia flat is HERE.
There are 92 reviews of the Felicia, and 69 of them are 5 stars!
This pair HERE has good reviews too.
Oh these are the most comfortable, soft and
simply great flats I’ve ever had! I bought them online while being
overseas and had it brought to me. I took a chance based on the reviews
and am sooo happy I did! Love them! Wear them every day for long walks
and running errands!
Worth the money and more!
Another option HERE (and this one is on sale)!
And last but not least, just so you new ladies get a true picture of what it is often like here on Fridays (click HERE for other Obsessions posts), I also thought I would highlight a food item.
I know many of you must know about these…….
SANTA FE STYLE RICE AND BEANS
Now let me be very clear about something.
Lean Cuisine also has a Santa Fe Style Rice and Beans
But in my humble opinion, I believe it to be inferior to the Smart Ones version.
It is not the same.
It’s not even close.
Just ask the lady on the frozen food aisle at Target that was buying the Lean Cuisine version when a totally crazy person (which may or may not have been me) felt the need to stop her from buying the Lean Cuisine and then proceed to recite what can only be describe as a monologue on the merits of this particular rice and beans.
The lady (okay it was me) went on and an about the sour cream sauce.
The words “creamy” and “delicious” were both used several times, and the word “cheesy” also came into play on more than one occasion.
Let’s just say that the lady left with the Smart Ones version.
I feel quite sure I would have received a thank-you note had she known my name and address.
Hope everybody has a wonderful weekend!
I got an e-mail last early this morning that it’s the final push to
shop the FINAL SALE at Nordstrom.
I thought the sale had already ended, but there seems to be this final push now.
I’m guessing their are limited sizes available, but that you could get a really great deal.
Click HERE to shop sale clothing.
Click HERE to shop sale shoes.
Click HERE to shop sale handbags and accessories.
Click HERE to shop all women’s watches on sale.
I just checked, and there are still LOTS of items available, so remember to narrow your searches so you can shop more effectively.
I narrow the price range first (I pretty much always choose $25-$50 and $50-$100 at the same time), and then if I need to narrow it further, I will put in my size.
SEE YOU GIRLIES LATER!
