May Pin-spired

It’s already May people!  How did that happen so fast?!?!  Today, as always, Sheaffer, Mel and I are hosting a Linky Party to get everyone Pin-spired.  (You know…take an inspiration from Pinterest and recreate the outfit using things from your own closet.)  If you missed me last month, click here to find out how I got Pin-spired in April.
Here’s the thing…I waited all month for warm weather so that I could style some outfits with shorts…but guess what?  It’s been cold here in Dallas!  In my 31 years, I don’t remember a spring that has been this chilly.  I’m not complaining…we have probably 100 days of over 100 degrees in our near future, so I am absorbing as much cool air as I can…but…tomorrow, May 2, the high in my area is 59 degrees!  In May!  That is UNBELIEVABLE!
Needless to say…I don’t have a summery outfit today…but I do have an outfit that has the colors of summer and spring with a little warmth for the chilly days.

My inspiration photo…navy and white stripe shirt with bright skinny jeans.

And what I pulled out of my closet.  
Not bad, right?  It kept me warm while also looking like spring and not drab winter.

Click here for the jeans.
And guess what?!  Both are on sale…

And even though it was chilly, I’m absolutely so obsessed with these wedges, that I wore them anyway.  They are the most comfortable wedges ever made.  Period.  They’re fabulous!  (And yes, my toes are painted…I had someone comment last month that they weren’t.  I wear bold colors on my fingers and neutral shades on my toes.  This is OPI’s Cosmo-Not Tonight-Honey.)  
These are the putty wedges…but they come in several other colors as well.  You must get you a pair (or two!).
Next month will be June!  Surely, I will be wearing shorts, right? 
Don’t forget to link up today below!  And you can always follow my Pinterest boards by clicking here.
Today in my kitchen…Sprinkle Cake Cookies.
And my giveaway is going on until Friday morning.  Click here for details.
Happy May!

    someone seriously commented on your toe nails??? good lord. Super cute outfit ~ and those darn wedges. I'm going to email my husband a link to every time you and sheaffer have raved about them to convince him they are a need! ha!! 😉 And i'm pretty jealous of your weather! I mean our florida spring has been pretty mild too but it is in the 80's and the humidity is already gross! Enjoy the cooler weather a little extra for me!! =)

    You are so cute! You should do outfit posts more often, I love your style!

  • Amie May 1, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    I love those wedges but do you have any recommendations for any that are under $70? I know them being that much they are probably totally worth it but I'm a cheapy and don't think I could let myself spend quite that much on them 🙁 lol

  • Caravan Sonnet May 1, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    Ooo I like this!! Very very cute!! I know what you mean about the weather! It seems to be holding out on us for a little bit!! Here's hoping to warmer weather!! 🙂

    Shay! Did you see Michael Buble on DWTS last night? I thought you'd for sure be in the ballroom for that. I love his new CD!!

  • The Tomlinsons May 1, 2013 at 3:48 pm

    I love the random tidbits you share. I do the opposite, bold colors on my toes and neutral on my fingers. How often do you paint your nails? I can never get the polish to last very long. I use neutral colors because when the color chips off it's not as noticeable.

  • Paige @ Kids and The Good Stuff May 1, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    Can I ask a silly but not really question? How do you cook such yummy desserts and still be in such great shape?? Your spirit of self control must be in shape as well!


  • mel @ the larson lingo May 1, 2013 at 4:12 pm

    SUPER cute outfit! I have a similar navy/white striped top. I could wear it with my coral pants! CUTE. And, I love your love of wedges. Wish I could wear wedges, but at 5'9, wedges would put me at over 6 feet tall…..YIKES.

    For questions about my fitness, check out the 52 Shades page across the top…I'll be doing a polish post soon with info on that as well. And, I'll be addressing what time I go to bed on Friday's post. Have a great day everyone! XOXO

  • Rachel May 1, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    what a fabulous color of jeans! It's always fun linking up with you!


  • Mix and Match Mama May 1, 2013 at 6:23 pm

    One more thing…I am getting a lot of questions about my routine, workout, cooking ,etc…don't forget to check the About Shay page at the top and there you will find "A Day in the Life of Shay"…with answers to a lot of your questions. I just love you all!

  • {Hi Sugarplum!} May 1, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    You look adorable…love your outfit!!! and i think I need to head over to Nordstrom to check out those wedges!

  • Aubrey May 1, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Your high temp in Dallas was the EXACT SAME as my high temp in Cheltenham. We even dressed similarly…if you disregard the fact that my striped top is maternity and my strappy shoes are flats. 🙂

  • Jenna {Real Simple Girl} May 1, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    Shay, I used the same Pinterest outfit for last month's Pinspired, but I like yours so much better!! I have those pink pants from Gap, too, and I love them! P.S. I'm super jealous that it's still cool in Dallas. It's already so hot here in FL, but I'm thankful for rainy days like today that cool it down a bit.

  • Olivia May 2, 2013 at 3:42 am

    I LOVE those pants. This Texas weather is crazy. I'll welcome some cool weather though! I'm not looking forward to the heat!
