Just send me a pic to firstname.lastname@example.org of you in the wedges, the jacket, or the boots with the subject line “CONTEST”.
I will create collages out of the entries, and then a random # will be chosen.
I’ve received lots of entries, but I know there are a lot more of you out there that still need to enter!
The prizes are worth playing for:
So, get your entries in and good luck!
Okay, so today I am merging two of my regular segments:
What I’m Obsessed With Now with Dear Sheaffer
I’ve had several “Dear Sheaffer” e-mails and blog comments lately that happen to revolve around some of my obsessions!
And it’s funny, most questions I receive are basically duplicates of questions from a different reader. Most of the time people want to know the same things.
So, I figure if one person takes the time to write a question, there are probably at least another 5 people that have the exact same question.
So anyway, we’re merging….just go with it. 🙂
Before we get to the e-mails, I feel like it is my duty to IMMEDIATELY inform you of some very important developments over here at Pinterest Told Me To.
I put it on facebook yesterday within 1.4 seconds of seeing it, but in case you didn’t see it yesterday…
THE MUST HAVE DENIM JACKET SHOWED UP ONLINE YESTERDAY FOR ONLY $46.56!!!!!
Click HERE for jacket.
Part of me thinks it’s a mistake since it’s not showing as a sale price, it’s just showing up at this new price (and it is a TOTALLY random price).
Still, even if it is a mistake, GET WHILE THE GETTIN IS GOOD PEOPLE!
All right, I feel like I can breathe now that I’ve done my due diligence and informed all of you about the reduced price. That’s a load off.
Okay, on to the e-mails….
AND BY THE WAY, this post today was already written before I saw the new price on the jacket yesterday. If you don’t have the jacket yet, and you still don’t plan on getting it after reading today’s post and seeing the new price, then I’m afraid we can’t be friends anymore.
It’s just the way it is.
I have to draw the line somewhere.
It’s for your own good.
Here’s the first e-mail…..
So, I bought the MUST HAVE denim jacket the first day you put it on the blog! And you were right, I LOVE it! I was surprised at how light weight it was, and it really goes with so much that was already in my closet. I know you did a post before where you mentioned wearing it with maxi dresses. I know this is crazy, but I have never owned a maxi dress. Can you help me find a good one?
It’s confession time.
I’ve never owned a maxi dress either!
I’m only 5’4″ (okay….5’3″ and 3/4), so I just kind of thought I was too short to pull one off. I’ve tried several on over the years, but I never really liked them on me. However, after receiving your e-mail, I decided I would try to find one that worked for me!
I headed to Nordstrom to specifically try on THIS one and I took my jacket with me!
It is striped (which I love), I really liked the muted palette, and it is Petite, which I thought could be a good thing for me. Sadly, it is only found online.
(Sidenote, if anybody has this exact dress please leave a comment telling me what
you think about it!)
Although the one I was looking for wasn’t in store, I did try on several others….
and I have to say…
I really REALLY liked them!
(full disclosure – I tried on 10 dresses, and I hated like really hated 6 of them.)
These are the 4 that I liked (ranging in price from $48 – $88)!:
THIS one here from Lush.
This dress made me feel tall and skinny (um, yes please!) and it is very well priced!
I love a good pendent necklace.
Okay…..if you’re not super super skinny, this next dress isn’t for you.
Jeni, you could and should order this dress.
Conner, you would look great in it too!
Shay, you could totally pull this dress off.
However, MOST people cannot wear this dress. I really loved the idea of it, but it showed every little bump and blip and was not flattering on me.
Still, if you have a rockin’ bod, OWN IT and order this dress!
The straps are “rope” also. Love it!
I also felt like this dress was very flattering! Again, I felt tall and skinny. SIGN. ME. UP.
In fact, I’m thinking of buying this dress and wearing it 5 days per week for the
rest of my natural life.
So this next one isn’t really a maxi dress, but I’m going to throw it in here anyway.
I’ve never tried the high-low trend (never wanted to), but I actually like this dress a lot!
I was surprised that I was finding so many maxis that I liked (considering I’ve never really liked them before), but then I realized why!
My wedges (HERE) seen in each of the above pictures were giving me enough extra height that the dresses looked good on me!
I didn’t look like I was being swallowed up by the dress.
If you already have the jacket and the wedges, one of these dresses seems like a no brainer to me!
and I didn’t find THIS one in store,
but it has lots of great reviews and looks like it good be a good one!
Or, just click HERE for a ton of choices all under $100!
I love your hair. It always looks bouncy and fun. I live in Plano (and I know you live in McKinney) so I was wondering who does your hair! I might like to pay her a visit myself!
Thanks so much for your question! I’ve actually received several hair questions over the last couple of months, so I thought I would put it here on the blog!
My hair stylist’s name is Amanda and she is FAB!
She works at Ericka’s Hair On The Square and it is right off of the square in downtown McKinney.
She’s pretty busy as it is (probably won’t be able to get you in on nights or weekends), but she can take new clients during the day!
Ericka and Jessica are great too, so surely you can find somebody to fit you in!
I (like you) share a love for my denim jacket. However, even though I already have one that I wear every once in awhile, I find myself wanting the one that you keep talking about. Mine is from GAP several years ago, and I feel like it is still current, but maybe it isn’t?
Is your denim jacket really THAT much better?
Maybe it’s okay for me to have 2?
Thanks for the question.
I think the thing that makes a jacket looks the most dated is it’s shape.
Is it boxy? Is it baggy? Does it look over-sized?
My LOFT jacket that I had purchased many years ago still fits me, but each and every time I put it on, I ended up taking it off. It came down to the fact that the fit wasn’t good.
The picture below is the day that I bought the jacket.
The top 3 things I love about this particular jacket follow:
1) The fit.
It isn’t boxy AT ALL, and I feel like it is super flattering.
2) This jacket is surprisingly light weight.
3) The jacket has some stretch in it.
and I’m going to add a 4th reason just because…..
1) I know it sounds crazy. But I love the stonewashed look.
HUGE DISCLAIMER HERE:
I wrote this before I saw yesterday that the jacket is now being featured at a reduced price!
So Caroline, LISTEN TO ME,
I feel like you are now TOTALLY justified buying a 2nd denim jacket!
You will be so glad you did!
Click HERE for the jacket at the sale price!!!
Okay, that’s all of the questions for this week….now I just want to share some finds with you!
Some are on sale, some are not.
I found THIS necklace while browsing online earlier this week and I put it in my cart with my Vigoss jeans. I figured since I was getting awesome jeans for under $40 that I
could throw a necklace in my cart too.
That’s girl math, plain and simple.
Click HERE for the necklace.
*I got it in the Friday afternoon and I love it!
It reminds me of the new J Crew fan necklaces that are way more expensive!
I am so excited to start styling it in outfits!
I bought this scarf while doing Shopping with Sheaffer and Shay, but it somehow didn’t make it to the post! And now it’s on sale for $8.98!
Click HERE for the scarf, 2 colors remain!
It’s the perfect summer scarf.
THIS new product from Neutrogena.
Thank you Nikki for introducing me to it!
It is AWESOME.
It smells great (and I am weird about smells), and it doesn’t taste weird!
It’s hard to explain, but it goes on so smooth, almost like Vaseline would (but with color).
The super surprising thing about it though is that the color stays on!
Lipstick NEVER stays on my lips, and this does! It is AMAZING!
TRULY. TRULY. AMAZING.
I guess I would describe it as a lip stain. I’m going to go get 2 more colors!
Also, right now GAP has WHOLE LOT on sale – all shorts in all departments are 50% off….
and it’s an additional 30% off of items already on sale with the code GAPSALE.
Shay called me last night to give me the heads up, and I went ahead and stocked up on some basics for back to school!!!
COME ON at the cuteness!!!!
We have 4 colors of the GAP rubber shoes, and I promise it is almost the only shoe the little man wears.
Easy to pull on and off just like crocs, but WAY cuter! He even wears them to the pool!

One reviewer said:
I found this set because I was looking for a
pallet of brown shadows, some really light and others really dark. This
set had both! And even better came with a lipstick, bronzer, mascara
and eye liner. I like the bronzer, but it’s a bit too light for my skin
in the summer. However, the shadows were what I was looking for and they
Lots of Sequin Bracelets are on sale again HERE!
I am still absolutely obsessed with mine, and I know some of you are now too!
