I really don’t “do” Pinterest much, preferring to share what I find interesting here, on the blog, but I have started to use it a bit more lately, for pinning random things I find quickly. It’s useful that way. I don’t really FIND inspiration on Pinterest, honestly, because most of the outfit pictures I see pinned are the same old bloggers, or models, which can be a good source of inspiration generally, but not for me.
Until now, I’ve never really thought about where my inspiration for my style comes from; I don’t have a style icon. I can never name an actress or a model I’d like to “be” like, or dress like, or whatever. I really just get my inspiration from shopping and finding things I love. So, I think it’s only natural that my inspiration comes from shopping sites, and designer’s (of course James Perse!) sites online. I’ve always loved Net-a-Porter’s styling ideas, Totokaelo is a favorite, La Garconne can do no wrong, and lately, I’ve been finding a lot to love at The Dreslyn.
Which is a long way to say that The Dreslyn is where I got my basic inspiration for this outfit, or the sweatshirt specifically, because all the other pieces are completely different. Mostly, it just took this picture to realize that I could wear the gray sweatshirt I bought for my husband to wear around the house recently (that he doesn’t wear…can you believe it!!), with jeans and get the best oversized look.
I’ve been putting all my favorite outfit ideas and products in my “What to Wear” board on Pinterest, perhaps you’ll find some inspiration there? And do follow me on Pinterest if you’re there, and I’ll follow you back!! Jump through below to see my Pinterest board.
