One silver lining from spending time on the Internet is to discover new inspiration for styling, cooking and shopping.
Today, I want to show you how I was inspired to wear a different look with my faux leather leggings, make sweet potatoes (with bourbon!) a new way, and save on quality gifts!
Also, extra savings just for readers of this blog!!
I follow a couple of Australian ladies (Linda & Leanne) on Instagram called ThiswithThis. I screenshot the look when first shown some time ago and put it in my INSPIRATION FOR FALL folder on my computer.
When I saw this look, I immediately thought…I can do that…right now…with pieces I already own. I love to be inspired by others!!
My only regret here is that I am missing the touch of olive green she is wearing…but I like this and after I put it together, I wore it out. Here are my details and I have owned all of these for awhile:
The topper and faux leather leggings are both originally from Soft Surroundings.
Black V-neck top is JJill
The necklace is from Chico’s
The leather sneakers are from Rockport.
It is worth the time to look around at other women in search of ideas to style pieces we already own… Pinterest is perfect for that!
INSPIRATION FOR AN EASY THANKSGIVING DISH
Perhaps you are looking for inspiration for a new way to serve Sweet Potatoes over the holidays. Leigh Ann sent along her family-favorite Special Bourbon Sweet Potatoes.
2 Cans (1 lb 13 oz each) sweet potatoes, drained (I cook mine, but it is easy to make that adjustment)
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup bourbon of choice (might I recommend the Texas bourbons, such as Rebecca Creek!)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup light brown sugar
Beat drained sweet potatoes until fluffly. Beat in remaining ingredients. Place in an oven-proof casserole. Mix pecans and brown sugar and spread over the top.
Bake at 350 Degrees for 30-40 minutes until completely heated.
