Pin-spired: February Edition

I'm linking up with my sister Mel (and some of her blogger friends) for Pin-spired!
Super excited about this idea because after having a baby I got pretty lazy about my outfits. 
For nine months while pregnant, I stopped caring about how I looked because for the first half I felt too sick to think about what I wore and for the second half I was in maternity clothes and didn't care to buy anything that cute.
Then came postpartum and awkward body and not having time/energy to think about cute outfits.
So, this is great inspiration.
I started with just two outfits this month, but I have a bunch pinned, so I'm excited to start wearing them.

Here is my first pin and outfit:

Shirt: Gap
Scarf: The Pleated Poppy
Jeans: BP
Boots: Cathy Jean

I am really into stripes right now! And, pinterest keeps telling me to mix my colors up, so why not go navy and mustard! I have a few more navy/mustard combos I want to try out. And, get used to see this mustard scarf. Love it!

Second Pin/Outfit:
My Outfit:
Shirt: JCrew (Outlet)
Scarf: Gift from a student
Jeans: Old Navy
Boots: Target

When I put this outfit on, Jason was like "whoa", you're mixing black and brown?! I used to always give him a hard time if he tried to wear black and brown together. 
But, pinterest told me that black and brown or black and tan are in...
My outfit is not exactly the same, but I like how it turned out :)

So, I'm going out of my comfort zone and being bold.
Can't wait to keep this going!

Yay Becks!!!! I have a similar outfit pinned for the black stripes & mustard scarf. Maybe we will wear it on the same day, because that's how we roll. And, I LOVE your scarf in the 2nd outfit. Can I borrow it sometime? Thanks, sister :)

Love your outfits!

I love your navy and mustard combo. And I am a lover of all The Pleated Poppy scarves.
I too am trying to find style again after babies. This link up is great to inspire new combos. Oh and I am still getting used to black and brown together too.

Black and Brown is the best new color combo! It makes everything so much more interesting and just plain cuter! So glad that you linked up with us today!
