Raiding My Sister’s Closet: Pinterest Closet Inspiration

A quick question – do you call it “Pin-Ter-Est” or “Pin-Trist”? Merrick pronounces it the first way, I pronounce it the other way.
Anyway, that is not important. (Unless you’re saying it the wrong way).
This week, we each chose a photo from our Pinterest style/fashion boards and did our own take on the outfit.
This was the one I picked, from See Jane.

I love basically everything about this outfit, but I REALLY love the lining on her coat that you can see at the cuffs. Gotta get myself a brown leather jacket.
And here is my take on it. I was really thrilled with how it all came together (also, when did it get so cooooold outside?):
Shirt: c/o Choies // Vest: Gift from my mom // Jeans: Gap
Boots: Chinese Laundry via Ross // Pearl Bracelet: gift from Landen
Pave Link Bracelet: c/o Jane

  1. I say Pin-trist except for when I have to spell it, and then I mentally say "pin-ter-est," haha. digging the burberry-esque shirt.

  2. Pin-Trist! And I love your vest! I have a super super old one that I still love that's more of a canvas-y materials, and if it would only get cool in Texas I'd be all over it!

  3. I say Pin-trist too. I've actually heard a few people call it Pin Interest like it's two separate words. Very interesting! Ha ha! I love your outfit. My only suggestion would be to roll the hem of the pants if they are long enough, like in the inspiration picture.

  4. I love that your look is similar to but not a clone of the inspiration pic. I actually prefer your vest and dark-wash jeans. You look so edgy and fun.

    Pin-trest like Andrea said ^^

  5. Oooh yes! Love! I need a good vest for the fall and winter. (and I also need to go through and copy some of my pins!)

  6. I love this look, Janssen! I just got some booties like yours and have so far only worn them a few ways. I never thought to wear them with a button-up and vest like you did here. I love it! Also, I say "Pinterest" the same way you do – "pin-trist!"
