Pin to Real Life

hereandnow1 
Hey there! I'm Sarah and I have kidnapped Jess and I'm taking over her blog. Just kidding. I wouldn't do that to Jess because I like her and we have a lot in common. First, we're both bloggers (you can find me at Sarah's Real Life normally). Second, we're both working on advanced degrees (law school for me). And third, we both have a passion for making our lives - as they are right now - a little more stylish. 

One way I like to do that is by using Pinterest to collect outfit ideas from some of my favorite bloggers, and then re-creating those looks with my own clothes. When Jess asked me to guest blog for her while she's on vacation (because seriously...I didn't kidnap her), I thought it would be fun to do a "Pin to Real Life" post based on one of Jess's own outfits that I pinned recently!

Thanks Jess for the outfit inspiration! It was the perfect look for my wine tasting excursion. It gave me an excuse to wear my Panama hat and also forced me to bust out this old brown belt that I haven't worn in ages. And thanks, of course, for inviting me to be a Guest Blogger Extraordinaire (I just gave myself that title) on My Here & Now Life! Here & Now readers, you're obviously a fan of blogs with "life" in the title, so I hope you'll hop on over and visit me at Sarah's Real Life.
