September Pin-spired

It’s September’s Pin-spired!!!!  Do you hear me squealing with delight?  It’s fall!!!!
I love September!  September is my very favorite month of the year :).  The weather begins to change, the days get shorter, football season is here, soups are made, jeans, sweaters, jackets and booties get to be worn…I love it all!
Happy September Pin-spired to you!
Today, Mel, Sheaffer and I are hosting our monthly Pin-spired…you know, we take images from Pinterest and get inspired by them to freshen up our own wardrobes.  This month, I’m focusing on my new favorite combination…
How cute, right?!?!  Last winter, I wore my Buffalo Check scarf all.the.time…
…it was this navy and red check scarf I found in the men’s section at Gap.  Mine is no longer available but they do have a similar version out right now.
So, I took my favorite leopard flats and my new buffalo check shirt and paired them together for this month’s Pin-spired…

For a size reference, I bought the shirt in an XS, and I’m wearing them with my favorite Gap jeans too…I love the Always Skinny style!  I buy the regular length and either roll them “boyfriend” style or tuck them into boots.  This style is from last year but there are several similar styles online now.  They run true to size and wash and dry to perfection!  I love them!
Aren’t these Pinterest images so fun?!?!  
Distressed jeans, leopard shoes and a little Buffalo Check!  So easy!!
I also changed up the look with my leopard pumps and leopard booties too…
My booties and pumps are from years ago (and no longer in stock) but here are some great alternatives…
And if you’re looking for a few more doses of Buffalo Check, here you go…
This cute Buffalo Check jacket would be a great transitional layer to wear in September.
And look how cute this tunic is…
…it comes in two other colors as well.  It would look super cute paired with leopard :).
And since it’s fall, you know I’m about to go nuts wearing scarves…so, if you’d rather your check and leopard be a la scarf…then, here you go…
I mean really…won’t you wear these scarves all season long?  My plaid and leopard scarves seem to be the ones I wear the most…they’re just so easy to throw on :).
Thanks for getting Pin-spired with me!!  Link up below!
Don’t forget, right now the Nordstrom Clearance Sale is going on!  Woohoo!

Have the VERY best Labor Day weekend!  If you’re looking for a Labor Day menu, click here to see mine!  Enjoy your time off!!

    Love the buffalo check shirt. Can't find it in red online. Did you purchase in store or online?

    I am a big fan of that plaid!!! Paired with leopard? Even better! That picture of your kiddos jumping…maybe K needs to try pole vaulting??

    Whoah! Buffalo Plaid and Leopard! This is a perfect example of how to get Pin-spired! All of those photos are amazing!

    I have always loved buffalo check, but never would have added stripes or leopard to the mix! As soon as the temps drop here in Ohio, I am on it! Look out October Pin-spired πŸ™‚

    You look adorable! And let's not get carried away with calling it Fall just yet! πŸ˜‰ Happy long weekend!

    I'm dying for a pair of booties, and leopard, how perfect! But, I am not totally convinced I can wear them – I'm short inherited my momma's booty – plus years of showing sheep growing up mean I have muscular legs. Any tips for pulling off cute booties without looking like I'm chopped off at the ankle? Thanks!!

  • Angela August 29, 2014 at 4:00 pm

    Love the red one, too!! Bummed it's already sold out! Looks awesome on you!

  • Katelyn Sloan August 29, 2014 at 6:37 pm

    You really are proving leopard is a neutral. Ya look fantastic! Love it!!!

  • Carroll August 30, 2014 at 12:33 pm

    What a fantastic combination, Shay! I am so ready for fall, too, and these looks are such a perfect way to transition to the new season. Hope you have a great weekend! Thanks so much for hosting this fun linkup — it's one of my absolute faves. πŸ™‚

    So I was just on the gap site and they have the red buffalo plaid shirt! One review said it is green and red– is that so?
