Pinspired: Building A Wardrobe With Help from Pinterest!

Ever since Pinterest introduced their custom-curated, personalized “Interests” section, I have been even more enamored with the website! The home feed is great and everything–seeing what your friends and favorites pin is always an excellent source of inspiration–but Interests just took things to another level. If you haven’t checked it out yet, the new section organizes custom boards based on things you’ve personally pinned, searched, and liked. For me, this means new boards full of Victoria’s Secret hair, Anna Wintour, healthy dinners, beauty hacks, and leopard print coats, just to name a few topics of interest! If anything could make Pinterest more addictive, this is it. Topics are tailored exactly to each users interests, meaning that you’ll probably be logging some additional hours behind your laptop, enthralled in your favorite “research” topics. Aside from healthy living and VS beauty, another one of my custom Pinterests interests is something called “Build A Wardrobe“. I’m obsessed! The board is chock full of endless outfit ideas, packing tips, essential basics, and wardrobe remixes galore. I love seeing how other ladies stock their closets and determine what’s essential. Here are links from a few of my favorite pins!

  • Putting Me Together: Style / Wardrobe Tips: More than a mere article, this entire site focuses on creating what the author calls a “remixable wardrobe”. So. Many. Resources! It’s a must-bookmark. If that’s not endorsement enough, the pinner before me noted, “When I went looking for resources to help me grow-up my wardrobe, this was the most helpful blog! Gentle, low-budget support for building a wardrobe that is versatile, remixable, classic, and fitting.” That’s the dream, girls.
