How To Plan Outfits Using Pinterest

How to plan outfits using Pinterest

Possibly my favourite way to use Pinterest is to plan outfits. I don’t usually plan day to day things to wear, but when I’m going away and I need to pack or if I buy something new I head straight to Pinterest to have a peek at how other people have styled something similar. It’s a great way to encourage yourself to try new things that you wouldn’t usually wear.

Here’s how to plan outfits using Pinterest:

// Choose a colour palette – If you don’t know where to start, just try searching “colour palette” or head to my board where I have pinned my favourite colour schemes. Pick out a few colours that catch your eye that you wouldn’t usually put together like grey and orange or red and mint.

// Choose a key piece – If you’ve bought new a new pair of clogs try searching “clogs” or “Swedish Hasbeens” and browse the different outfits people have worn them with. Pin some with skirts and some with jeans to a board for later.

// Start to build your outfit around your key piece – Search for items together like “jeans with clogs” or search for a certain coloured item like “gold skirt”. Pin the most eye catching results to your board for later.

// Take note of styling details – Jeans might be rolled up or shoes might be worn with socks. Notice how jewellery is layered or even how someone has styled their hair to match their outfit. When you re-pin these to your board, use the caption to remind yourself what you liked about that image.

// If you’re getting too many product photos rather than street style images, try tagging “outfit” on the end of your search to pull up more complete looks and outfit posts from bloggers and stylists.

// When you’ve built up a great board with around 20 or 30 pins, pop your laptop or tablet in the middle of your bed and start to pull out the items that you own that go along with the ideas you’ve pinned.

// Make piles by colour and by style. Lay pieces of clothing next to each other to see if colours compliment or clash. Remember that sometimes a good clash can really make a statement.

// Pull out items that you really like together and hang them on a coat hanger over your wardrobe door. Pick out accessories like tights, necklaces and hats too and keep them all together as an outfit. Pop matching shoes on the floor underneath to get the full effect.

// Step back and admire your handiwork. Take a couple of photos on your phone so you can remember your outfit ideas for next time and choose your favourite for your next big day out.

Outfit Post: Cactus Love in Taormina, Sicily

Denim Shirt Outfit Ideas

Oh my heart, we finally got to see some of Sicily for my 30th birthday and it was beyond epic. Stu booked me a surprise trip for my birthday and I have no idea how he did it all and managed to keep it a secret until the afternoon of my birthday… not to mention how insanely well he knows me, I’ve wanted to go to Sicily for so many years and it did not fail to live up to the amazing picture I had painted of it in my mind!

Taormina, Sicily

We stayed in Catania and heading out along the coast one day to explore Taormina, a breathtaking cliff top town. It rained all morning while we were travelling, but as we started to make our way through the amazing village on foot the rain started to dry up and it turned into a gorgeous day, even if my feet were a little soggy!

As well as being stunningly beautiful, the mountainside of Taormina was covered with cacti, the perfect setting for some cactus love and to try out the new sample of my brand new Cactus Marquee necklace! These will be available in my Etsy shop really, really soon along with some other brand new designs. If you want to find out when they’re available, you can join my mailing list here:

Red Minnetonka Moccasins

This lovely worn and weathered staircase, wrapped in greenery was hidden away at the bottom of a whole bunch of steps down from the main town and had the more incredible view of crisp, turquoise blue and fresh, lush green. I could have stared off over there forever. I’d love to design a piece for my garden, when the summer comes, that reminds me of this spot. I’ll definitely share it with you guys too!
