May Pinterest Picks

So I know it has been 2 weeks since I last posted, and I completely blame the fact that I got out of school and became lazy. So I apologize for that, but I am back and ready to blog about fashion all through the summer. When I posted my last month’s Pinterest Picks I wasn’t sure how it was going to go over, but after the great response I decided to make it a monthly thing. I even decided to add another category to the post, hair and makeup, because I have a new obsession with them, especially makeup. So if you have any makeup brands or products you love, you should let me know. Anywho, now I should probably get back on topic, so here are my May Pinterest Picks.

Day To Day

When I was younger I was under the impression that red heads couldn’t wear orange or red, but nowadays I love wearing these colors. When I saw this outfit I fell in love with it, and the next day I planned an outfit with this pin in mind. While I wore a checkered shirt similar to the one in the pin, I paired it with a pair of orange trousers. I got so many compliments on my outfit that day and was told that my outfit lit up the room. I am so glad I pinned this pin because it gave me inspiration for a new favorite outfit.

Continuing with the monochrome theme is this blue outfit. From the bag to the skirt I want this entire outfit. I especially love the statement necklace worn with the collared denim shirt. Glad I pinned this as well because I am now trying to plan an outfit from this pin, and it is proving to be great inspiration.

 Right Off The Runway


Valentino makes some of the most gorgeous gowns, and this one is no exception. It is so simple with only red fabric, but the construction of it is stunning. I love this not only because of the gown, but because the entire look of the model is so simple. Who would have thought that such a simple look could be so absolutely glamorous?

On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, the Dolce and Gabbana has so much going on, yet it is just as stunning. I pinned this because if I had one of those crazy weddings, this is what I would wear. From what I have read, in real life the grey is a bit darker and the flowers are a bit more yellow, but I love it even in the photo.

Let’s Get Some Shoes

I whole heartedly worship J. Crew and everything about them, which is why I immediately pinned these shoes when I saw them. These pumps are from their Italian shoe line and have a BIG price tag to them, so I will continue admiring them on Pinterest instead of in my closet. However, if I had the money I would definitely purchase the leopard print shoes. Thinking about it, I would probably purchase the sparkly shoes, too, because what girl doesn’t like sparkle?

For some time now I have had a pair of dream shoes in my mind that I always want, but never purchase. A pair of black patent leather platform pumps can always make me drool, and these are no different. Something about the shine of the black against the pop of red just makes me go crazy for these Louboutins.  One day I will probably splurge on a pair of these, and I will love them forever.

Rings And Things

This Kate Spade bag is to die for! I Love the pop of orange along with the floral pattern. I think this is the ultimate summer bag, and I am now on the hunt to find something similar to it. I think it is the perfect size and can be carried by the strap or by the handles, which makes it a go to bag. If I find one similar to this I will definitely let you all know.


I am a sucker for vintage rings, which is why I love this ring. It is so simple, yet absolutely stunning. I would wear this everyday whether it was my wedding ring or just a regular ring. I would love to have this as my wedding ring though because it is so different yet classic looking.

Hair and Makeup

Since I cut my hair into a pixie I have always wondered what it would look like I have bleached it. However I do not have the guts to be a blonde because I am so attached to my red hair. I guess you are either attached to your hair itself or the color of it, and I happen to love being a ginger. Not only do I love the cut of this blonde pixie, but the colored tips give it a bit of fire and sass, and that is a must if you are going to rock a pixie.

I don’t think a simple makeup look could be any better. With the pop of an orange lip and the pop of the blue eyes, I think this look is perfect for me. With that being said, I have to admit that I went shopping for orange lipsticks and bought two, but I still want more. My favorite that I bought is the Maybelline Color Whisper in Orange Attitude, and I highly recommend it. If you have a coral/orange lipstick that you are loving you should let me know in the comments below.

No Fashion Involved

This wedding cake immediately caught my eye and is easily my favorite wedding cake I have ever seen. I am not a fan of cookie cutter weddings, and this is definitely something different. Also I am not the biggest fan of frosting, so that eliminates that issue. When I showed it to my dad he complained that his favorite part of cake is the frosting, so to eliminate that problem I told him if I had a cake like this I would have a bowl of frosting on the side just for him.

I’ve been told that I don’t have much of a sense of humor, but this made me laugh out loud. I am a massive fan of Ryan Lochte, but I also know that he is no genius. You can easily learn that in the first minute of an episode of What Would Ryan Lochte Do? I came across this pin right before finals week and whenever I was on the verge of a breakdown when studying all I had to do was look at this and I was in a much better mood.

From this post I learned that my color of the summer is going to be orange. From clothes to makeup the color is popping up everywhere! I have no complaints though because orange is my second favorite color to pink. If you want to pin any of these pins or see my massive collection of other pins you can check out my page at and even follow me if you would like. Until next week…
