As Kelly would say, I am CHAWED.
And if you have a heart to pray for others, click HERE to see her prayer request post from yesterday.
Plus, she’s super cute…and from the videos I’ve seen I can tell you she has the cutest accent ever.
Do you kinda want to be her friend already?
Kelly has a family blog that is wildly popular. Like CRAZY popular!
(don’t you LOVE the names?)
Kelly had a normal pregnancy, and then there were complications the day Harper was born.
To be honest, I don’t remember any of the details, but she was a very sick little girl and wasn’t expected to make it.
Kelly and her family clung tightly to their faith and trusted in God…..
people all over the world were praying for little Miss Harper…
and look at her now!
Click HERE if you need a good cry. Like a bawl your head off kind of cry (but in a good way). 🙂
FAITH IN ACTION is a powerful thing.
Well, I told Kelly what I do over here, and Kelly was sweet enough to agree to come over today and show us what Pinterest told her to do!
She’s like me in that we are just regular ol’ moms trying to look cute when we walk out the door.
I’ve just started using Pinterest to help me do it….and Kelly decided to give it a try too!
Take it away Kelly!
So Sheaffer asked if I would do a guest post – dressing like outfits I pinned on Pinterest.
I had to giggle because once again – I’m not a Fashion Blogger – I’m a “pushing 40 years old with two little kids Mommy blogger”.
I seem to wear a wardrobe of yoga pants, razorback tees and pony tails these days. But I do love clothes and when I actually find an hour in the day to take a shower, fix my hair and wear real clothes – I love to try and look somewhat stylish. So I thought this might be fun. Besides the awkward part of taking pictures of me in the outfits. Or the awkward part where I tried to explain to Scott why he needed to take pictures of me in these outfits.
He might have laughed.
And rolled his eyes.
So one of the first things I saw on Pinterest was Drew Barrymore wearing a jean shirt and a maxi skirt. And I really liked this look. (I also think it’s so crazy how much Harper looks like a young Drew Barrymore.)
I had a jean shirt I had bought this year and several maxi skirts. I didn’t have a white one but I have this leopard one that I love but rarely wear because I’m not sure about it. ha! I felt like I needed to put my hand on my hip if I was taking a fashion picture. ha! I might have never worn a jean shirt with this skirt but I really liked it after I put it on.
My shirt I bought this year at Riffraff.
I bought the skirt last year at Maude. (both of those are local stores)
My belt is from Francesca’s a few years ago. I love it.
My boots I bought last year at Dillards and they are my ultimate favorites even though you can’t see them.
I had a hard time finding outfits that would match up to things I actually had in my closet. Then I found this little girl and knew I had a similar outfit. Which is either weird for the little girl or for me. Not sure.
I didn’t put white tights/leggings with mine because that is just not a good idea if you aren’t 20 or 95 pounds. (In my opinion). But I have this cute cream dress/tunic I LOVE. I’ve been wearing it with a cream long sleeved tee underneath because the flowers at the top are really cute and I want them to be seen but I kind of liked pairing it with a cardigan.
The dress/tunic came from ModCloth (which has the CUTEST clothes)
The cardigan I’ve had forever and honestly I don’t remember where it came from.
I wore my suede boots – same with my sweater – no idea where they came from.
Leggings from wal-mart. 🙂
Have you ever matched an outfit to Pinterest????
Thank you Sheaffer for asking me to guest post – it was fun!
Kelly! You look GREAT!
I love both looks for different reasons, but the 2nd is my favorite.
What can I say? I am a sucker for a long top with black leggings and brown boots.
Speaking of boots, I LOVE LOVE LOVE both of your pairs of boots (although I do want to see more of the ones in the first picture!).
I shared this sale with my readers last week, but thought your readers might want to know too.
There are TONS of boots on sale anywhere from 30-50% off at Nordstrom right now.
Like THIS Jessica Simpson pair at 50% off!
The varying colors in this one are great (remind me of your pair in the first pic), and I love the scalloped detail at the top.
I’m telling you, if any of you ladies need a pair of boots, NOW is the time to buy them.
Just go to Nordstrom by clicking HERE, and search “boots on sale” in the search box on the top right hand corner. 5 pages of boots appear!
Yep, I’m kind of a boot girl.
And I have to say I totally laughed out loud when I read that
Scott might have laughed and rolled his eyes.
I hear ya girl.
Chris (my hubby) used to laugh every time he saw me taking my cell phone pictures of myself.
Now he’s just used to the crazy. 🙂
Anyway, thanks so much for playing with us today Kelly and taking
the Pinterest Told Me To challenge!
And let me just say, you absolutely ACED it.
You were able to use your own clothes in different ways because of a
picture that inspired you on Pinterest which was 100% the point!
Using Pinterest as my personal stylist has really enabled me to stretch my wardrobe,
and you showed today that it helped you do the same!
Now, for all of Kelly’s readers who are over here at Pinterest Told Me To for the first time,
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STOPPING BY!
But before you go, I have several things I would love to tell you about before you go….and one is a GIVEAWAY!

With each post, I hope to give you ideas for how to use your clothes in different ways. And in addition to recreating outfits that I’ve pinned on Pinterest, I also like to point all of my readers towards good sales and great deals. I mean, we might be stretching our wardrobes, but we also need to shop some! Am I right? 😉
If I find something I love, I share it with everybody!
