Pinterest......how I love thee....

Let's talk 'bout it, people! I love Pinterest. It's like a member of the family. I feel like it gives its portion of help to my family. What do I make for dinner tonight, Pinterest? How can I pinch pleat my drapes, Pinterest? And last, but certainly not least, how can I look fashionably great without trying too hard?  Pinterest is the new Google. Well, look no further, people, cause I got your answers. Well, just one answer. We'll worry about the dinner and pinch pleats later on. Back to the important stuff. I came across this pin yesterday while 'Pinteresting'.


Beautiful, right? It's so comfy looking but in a grown up chic way. Then it dawned on me--I wear this all the time.Well not the heels and dress shirt, but my husband's sweater is my favorite piece to wear around the house, but now it was time to step it up and wear it out. I added some heels, curled the hair, and SHAZAAM!!

       I opted not to wear his dress shirt cause it was just too sloppy feeling on me. Instead, I went with my own black blouse for extra layers in this Florida winter.
While it may not look exactly like the picture, it is a similar "interpretation" of the ensemble. 

*Tip for big girls*:
Try to keep the look more polished by wearing clean jeans rather than destroyed jeans. You can wear skinny but it has to be with pointed heels so you don't look 'hipp-ie'. To pull off the oversized sweater, pair it with a long necklace. Steer clear of the shorter ones as it'll draw more attention to your upper half. The longer necklaces hanging just above the belly button(that is just a funny word to me) will elongate you and not draw attention to everything the oversize sweater is covering up. 

Have a great day!!
