A Wardrobe "PIN-tervention" for the SNAP Conference

Pin It!
Dear Friends, 

The SNAP blogging conference is coming up & I have been pacing around & wringing my hands planning what to wear. 

You see, if I don't plan three great outfits, {I know from experience} I will feel like HANGING MYSELF WITH MY OWN LANYARD!

So-o-o, I needed a "PIN-tervention" {aka a great idea from Pinterest}!
I fell in love with this "gingham & gems" ensemble from Seeking the South & the lace on the bottom of jeans idea from Anne at Wobi Sobi.


It was a fun & easy project to add some lace to the bottom of a favorite pair of my jeans . . 

Here's my version . . . 
I actually shortened my jeans before I added the lace. I think I could have gone a little shorter still {as Anne did in the inspiration photo}.

Then, I found a Jones New York gingham blouse at TJ Maxx for $25 & a bubble-style necklace at Icing for $20.

Of course, I like the inspiration outfit better, but I thought mine turned out pretty good. Thanks to these ladies for inspiring me!
