March Pin-Spired

|
Today is my first post of the month, so that means I'm linking up for the Get Pin-Spired challenge and recapping all of my outfits from the past month that came together with a little help from Pinterest. But if you haven't missed a post all month and have seen all these outfits, I have a fun giveaway at the end of this post so make sure to scroll down and check that out!

1. The Suggestion Box

In this post I tested out several outfits that came to my inbox from retailer's emails, like this one from Express:
Olive Jacket: Express (Similar) / Scuba Leggings: Express / White Tank: Target / Bag: Forever 21 / Converse: Nordstrom


2. Guest Posting

While Bri went on her honeymoon, I stepped in to post for her and did a few outfit Bri-creations over on Work Clothes, I Suppose:
Bri's Original Post: Here

My Outfit: Moto Jacket: Gap / Black Cami: Express / Necklace: Express / Black Jeans: Express / Leopard Wedges: Sole Society

3. Fashion Music Fusion

I checked out the music videos for the top three songs of the moment in this post to see if they have any worthwhile fashion inspiration, and sure enough, the number one song features a hot trend, the pink jacket:
Jacket: ExpressCami: Express / Black Skinnies: Express / Shoes: Express / Necklace: Forever 21


4. Pisces Style

I completed a full year of Astrology Style posts with this post on Pisces, and was pretty surprised to see that I have some style overlap with Rihanna. (And even more surprised that she has some style overlap with her fellow Pisces, Carrie Underwood!)
Striped Blouse: Express Jeans: Express (Similar) / Belt: Banana Republic / Shoes: Steve Madden


5. Lifeless Outfits

I've taken it upon myself to put outfit sets like the one below to the real-life test and see which ones work and which don't. Last month I focused specifically on chambray shirt looks, like the one below.
Chambray ShirtJ Crew Factory / White Skinnies: Express /  Black Blazer: Express
Black Pumps: Sole Society (Similar) / Necklace: Forever 21

  4. Love the utility jacket on you. Too bad it's not current. I've been looking for a longer length one for quite some time and nothing seems to stand out. I saw one from Old Navy last year but the color was a tad lighter than what I am looking for. Enjoy your Monday, Gina!

  8. I always love your recreations! The Rihanna is my favorite. Maybe because I have that shirt. ;) I squealed when I saw this giveaway. RM is my weakness! Thanks girl!

  9. Crap. In my haste, I forgot today was pinspired. Sigh.
    And I was thinking- do you have the light blue portofino? Because I think that may work in place of the chambray with the blazer and white skinnies! That's half the reason why I love that Portofino so much. It's a great stand in when a chambray is too fussy. Especially for layers!

    1. I don't have the light blue portofino but I have another light blue button down from Express (it's like a cotton Portofino) that would definitely work better for this!

  23. The olive jacket I'm seriously eyeing from Express. The blazer outfit I can recreate because I have the top and the blazer...so cute. I just purchase the express stripe top, but the version without the sleeve...can't wait to wear it :D.

  27. Ughh you're taunting me with that military/cargo jacket. That look you recreated with it is PERFECT. It also would go great with the striped portofino you have.

    I want to wear my new striped sleeveless portofino like Riri too... my pisces sister from another mister ;)
