Grocery stores, farmer’s markets, diners, and backyard gardens. The perfect settings for style inspiration.
Let me tell ya, after my IG post that I posted I was on an all-time high with my creative juices and thirst for some sort of fashion inspiration. This called for Pinterest! Now people say Pinterest has come and died and that it’s pretty much for the creative stay at home moms and crafters. Whether or not that’s true, you simply cannot hate on the organization system it has for anything that catches your eye, not just on Pinterest, but on the entire web. It’s a huge (and maybe the main reason) why I still use it.
Before I re-organized my Pinterest, everything that I’ve pinned since 2011 was still in its somewhat organized boards and themes. It’s a given but oh my goodness my style and interests have changed so much over the years! Needless to say it was fun to look back on pins that interested me back then but also refreshing to replace them with 2018 Jireh.
Along with my style changing, the way I view fashion and style has changed, too. I used to live for the pretty, glossy editorials in Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar magazines and observing the models’ leopard print jumpsuit with gold accessories and intense black stilettos. I’d always take into account on how the whole crew staged the entire shot as well.
Today what gives me greater inspiration is seeing photographs of your everyday, regular girls who just seem to have a natural flair for fashion. From influencers to bloggers and vloggers, I get excited seeing their creativity flow from their outfits, environment, props, camera settings, etc. This definitely includes the environments in everyday settings. I don’t see it as trying to be flashy with their noses stuck in the air, but extra. A fun extra. Which I think “flashy” and “extra” are two different things.
Take a look for yourself (and what goes inside my brain) on my new and improved Pinterest boards, which all these photos are from by the way. I take no credit for them at all! Hope it offers you some inspiration yourself!
