Fantasy to Reality

I am absolutely addicted to Pinterest (Click link to join!) ! If you don't already have one and have enough free time to become addicted to something new, I highly recommend it! The funny thing about Pinterest is that you pretty much plan your life virtually, you pin places you'll probably never go, things you'll probably never make, outfits you'll never be able to afford, weddings way out of your price range and food that if you do try to cook it, it'll never look like the picture. But it's fun to fantasize! Props go out to anyone that actually lives the life they pin through Pinterest! And I don't know if its just me, but when people re-pin cute wedding things I've posted I get all "oh no she did not," especially if it's a wedding I will more than likely be attending. I've been adding a lot of professional outfits to my outfit board lately as my hunt for my first "big girl job" continues. I hope to cheaply replicate some of the looks I've pinned!

{picture via Banana Republic}: What I found as a less expensive option

{picture via White House Black Market}: (Shirt) Pinterest Pin
{picture via Express}: (Pants) Pinterest Pin


*This look is surprisingly affordable!*

{picture via Express}: (Shirt) Similar shirt that is more affordable than White House Black Market 

*The {picture via Express} pants above are affordable (For nicely made dress pants), sign up for their rewards system and they have incredible coupons*
They no longer carry the pants above, but these are equally as cute! 

And since colored work pants seem to be the popular thing right now, these "wild berry" colored dress pants from {picture via New York and Company}are on sale AND everything is BOGO 50%!

{picture via Sole Society}: (Shoes) Pinterest Pin, From their color block cool collection 
*I expected these to also be too expensive to afford, but these are completely reasonably priced.


{picture via Kenneth Cole}: (Shoes) More expensive option, I just bought these at 40% off, I should have "sole" searched a little harder, because although the quality of these heels is fantastic I clearly could have gotten a better deal!

Some of my favorite stores to shop/drool over:

{picture via Express}: They have these adorable sweaters every season in seasonly appropriate colors. I have the prettiest teal color in the sweater

{picture via Lilly Pulitzer}: I recently stumbled upon her designs and although they are a bit out of my price range, I love how classy her stuff is!
{picture via Aerie}: My current employer, they are an American Eagle brand. If you currently shop at Victoria Secret, Aerie is something you need to check out!!! They strive for comfort and cuteness, all things that I love!

This entire post made me want to go shopping immediately!
