I Got Pin-spired!!

I love reading Shay, Sheaffer, and Mel’s posts every month.  I decided this month that I’d join in the fun!  I’m linking up with Shay, Sheaffer, and Mel to show an inspiration picture I found on Pinterest and how I turned it into a real-live outfit!
Here was the inspiration:
I think this necklace is too bulky with the denim shirt, but I loved the colors they used.  So…I tried to recreate it with things I had in my closet.  

First of all, let me say that it is HARD to take pictures of yourself and even harder to get your four-year-old to take a good picture!

Super dark…but I chose a denim shirt, turquoise necklace, gold earrings, long white tank, and coral shorts.

I realized one very important thing while I was taking these pictures.  I NEED A FULL LENGTH MIRROR IN MY HOUSE??  I tried a selfie and it worked (kind of??).  I actually think my picture looks a lot like Sheaffer’s pics??  🙂 Another thing I noticed…HOW MANY GRAY AND YELLOW CHEVRON RUGS DO I HAVE??  
This picture shows the outfit a little better.  I loved the look!  It was a great transition from summer to fall.  I would have loved it even more if it wouldn’t have been 102 degrees BUT I thought it was the perfect late August outfit.
Thanks so much Pinterest for inspiring me!!
