Simple Summer Outfit/Bloggers Who Inspire Me Linkup

First of all, I want to say thank you for all who left such sweet comments on my last post! The blogging community is such an amazing place :) I started by 14th week this past Thursday, and while I'm having more good days than bad, I am still having some sickness so hopefully it will pass soon (and hopefully I get my energy back too!)

Today I'm sharing with you all a simple, summer outfit. I took this back when I was 11 weeks (and could still fit into these shorts!) so you can't tell I have a bump yet :) 

Shorts: Gap
Tank: Gap (old!)
Kimono: Target
Sandals: Target
Earrings: The Limited
Watch: Gift

I've been wanting a kimono for awhile now and was looking at Target about a month ago when I found this beauty (plus it had a Cartwheel deal!). Of course, my size was sold out and I had to size down, but luckily kimonos run loose anyway, so you can't really even tell! It will be a perfect summer completer piece and obviously can grow with my expanding belly :)

Now onto the link up and this weeks featured five ladies: ***Note, while this link up has become quite the fashion link up, occassionally I like to feature posts outside of fashion and outfits. So while there were many fashion links I LOVED I also want to stay true to this link up and post other genres as well. You ALL inspire me though!

The Laundry Room Supermodel Tee The Laundry Room Supermodel Tee[/caption] Nikki linked up several lovely looks that it was hard to choose which one was my favorite as she has some lovely outfits almost always. I think what sold me on this look was her pointed striped flats (shoes I have had on my wishlist) and this tee (I LOVED these supermodels, especially Claudia because Claudia dated David Cooperfield the magician forever and as I child I loved both of them). I was inspired by Nikki's effortless yet casual chic look. Check out her post here.

Tiffany shows off a LBD with a BANG! I was inspired by the fact that while I don't think I have seen Tiffany style anything black I was impressed and thought she looked rather gorgeous. Tiffany normally styles bright colors, so her added neon pink clutch to stay true to her style was a cute addition. Check out her LBD look here.

learned-capsule-wardrobe.jpg   Sarah has been blogging about her month of picking only a limited number of clothes from her wardrobe and finding new ways to style them, a challenge she choose to do by a God given thought to see if she would come out being more thankful for the clothes she had and more. I was SO inspired by her results and the biblical principles she came to learn and realize through this challenge. I have seen God bless this young woman turned new blogging friend through this and I am so excited for her. You can view her challenge thoughts here. 

 Jennie redid a microwave cart and turned it into this lovely green coffee bar. Check out her process here. I was inspired to think outside the box of buying new furniture and instead how to re-purpose it or remodel it like she did here.
  Whitney created a list that works well for her on staying motivated, whether with blogging, work and blogging life as well as in the area of growth in general. You can view her tips in depth here
