I have a little secret.
I am terrible at coordinating outfits. *GASP*
Please tell me I am not alone?
My kids...I have no problem. I style them like the little Gap ads.
Myself...I feel like all my outfits look like a potato sack.
Until Pinterest...and all you other awesome fashion bloggers.
I created a board on Pinterest called "Thrift store Fashion Inspiration".
Reason because I mainly buy 90% of my clothes at the Thrift Store and
10% from Target clearance racks. *personal preference*
All the Polyvore outfits and fashion photos had me seeing major $$$$
flying out of my checking account.
Let's be honest...I can't buy makeup and NEW pricey clothes.
My kids gotta eat...something.
Anyways...out of ALL my obsessive fashion pins on my Pinterest account came...
I took an empty binder I had laying around.
Saved all the "pins" from my Pinterest account.
Copied and Pasted them into a word document and PRINT.
Ripped out magazine pages that have "inspiration".
Now I have instant access to outfit inspiration.
I have carried my Style File with me to the Thrift Store and pulled pieces that were similar to some of my favorite pins to recreate that specific outfit.
Basically this is my holy grail "fashion" go to file.
I even have some workouts printed out.
Makeup looks from some of my favorite MUAs.

My 10 year old girl loves to flip through my Style File.
Even my boys have a blast with it when we are shopping.
We have now made it a game at the thrift store. "Who can find a shirt like the one in the image?"
Thank you Pinterest for making my life easier...
