Make sure you read to the bottom of the post for my picks from the 40% off LOFT sale!
They extended it until today at 10:00 am Eastern. WooHoo!
I have a new sponsor to introduce you to!
You might have seen her over on Shay’s blog, and now she’s here too!
Her blog is so inspiring and you are going to love it.
You can see her post on what to expect when losing baby weight HERE (with pictures)!
And you can read about an online bootcamp she is starting in September (and try it out) by clicking on the post HERE.
Now, for today’s post!
Nina, my people.
She is all sorts of fabulous, and you guys are just going to love her.
She owns some seriously gorgeous jewelry.
(Speaking of jewelry, she is wearing a green version of one of my favorite statement necklaces that you can find HERE! It looks so great with striped top!)
and prepare to be inspired.
So without further ado….here’s Nina!
I keep myself busy on a daily basis being a wife, mom to two babies, and lifestyle blogger.
On my blog, I share snapshots of my every day life as well as posts
on topics ranging from parenting, entertaining, gift giving, fashion,
and product reviews… sometimes a little more… sometimes a little
less! But I’m always dedicated to bringing the very best products,
resources, and ideas to my readers.
I was so excited when Sheaffer asked me to guest post here on Pinterest Told Me To. I was introduced to Sheaffer by my very good friend Erin, otherwise known as the Blue-Eyed Bride. Earlier this Summer, I got to know Sheaffer a little better when we teamed up with a group of bloggers to host the big Erin Condren Life Planner giveaway. She is a lot of fun to work with and her enthusiasm is contagious! I love that about her.
I kicked around a few ideas, but I
kept going back to my original plan. My Pinterest Vest from J.Crew!
When I think about the phrase, “Pinterest Told Me To…” This vest is
the first thing that comes to mind. And with Fall right around the
corner, I thought it just made sense!
I saw this vest last Fall while shopping on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. I
passed it up (for the bargain price of full retail) because I was
disappointed it was a herringbone print and not actually herringbone
Then, no lie, no more than two weeks later, it hit Pinterest! Big time.
It was everywhere and also sold out on the J.Crew website.
I’m not one to normally buy into the craze, but I did for this vest. I
just had to have one. I set up saved searches on eBay (with
notifications and reminders too). I think I lost three auctions before
finally winning the prize. My Pinterest Vest!
And let me tell you. It was one of the best purchases I have ever made.
(Even if I had to pay more than retail.) I LOVE this thing! I dress it
up for church and I dress it down for weekdays… Last Winter, I even
wore it with my baby bump and yoga pants. It also looks great over a
black cashmere sweater for those extra chilly days.
Here was my inspiration:

For a similar look and to give you a second way to wear your chambray shirt, thanks to Pinterest, I’m also loving the denim on denim with the J. Crew Denim Vest.

The LOFT extended the 40% off sale thru today at 10:00 am Eastern.
So you have to act SUPER fast….
but blazers and jackets are expensive, so picking one up at 40% off is a great deal!
I also threw THIS necklace in my cart.
It is so dainty and pretty and is the PERFECT necklace to layer with a shorter necklace.
It looks totally “blah”on the website, but it is so SO pretty in person!
See you tomorrow ladies!
