Please forgive the long silence.

I'll be speaking about using Pinterest for your business, as well as has to run paid on Pinterest. I can't wait! This is really a dream opportunity. I have never worked this hard on a presentation in my LIFE!

Creative Live will be recording the classes as well, so if you miss them you can always purchase them later.

Calvin Klein and the CK brand is known for understated elegance and high-end quality. I'm thrilled to tell you that they have released some new bedding collections that bring that CK cool and modern factor to the home. I partnered with Calvin Klein to create imagery that exemplifies this simplicity as part of the Pin Collective, and I'm happy to share it all with you today.

Only Calvin Klein can make bedding look and feel just as beautiful as clothing. It's all in the details and quality. This Clone bedding with a tiny swiss dot pattern with black roses is unlike any other bedding I have seen before.  The pattern creates a trompe l'oeil effect, which is a French art technique that creates an optical illusion. Just more proof of the artistry and thought that goes into their products.

Calvin Klein knows cotton. They are textile masters. The quality of these white sheets is on par with their clothing. It's as if you slipped on an elegant dress and went to a party in your dreams. Their loungewear is a perfect complement as well.

This experience of the Calvin Klein Home product really brought out my love of minimalism. I painted this whole room black, and created a new guest room for our home. This used to be Elle's old room, and now it's a modern sanctuary for my visitors.

Be sure to check out the other beautiful white bedding choices Calvin Klein has. I'd love to hear what you think of my new guest room too!

PINTEREST LOOK FOR LESS

I love the slight breeziness that tells us it's fall in Arizona. While the rest of the world (or at least a good portion of it) are bundled up in coats and chic scarves, wearing pants is a luxury in this state. Don't get me wrong, I love it here, and I love the opportunity to extend my summer wardrobe a bit. But in the spirit of fall dressing in the desert, this pin really inspired me. I love the laid back vibe of some slouchy trousers and a white tee, contrasted by a polished belt and structured matching bag. Drape a duster coat over your shoulders and you instantly look like you should be roaming around the streets of New York. There's no going wrong with this look, especially when you can get it for under $150. 

PINTEREST LOOK FOR LESS

Call it wishful thinking, but I'm hoping to soon break out my long sleeve blouse and boot ensembles. Being covered head to toe can be a bit intimidating, especially in all black, but this lovely pin inspired me to embrace the off-the-shoulder trend this fall as a way of giving my eyes (and shoulders) some room to breathe. Off-the-shoulder tees and blouses have become practically as common on the streets as your average button down, so I'm happy to add it as a staple to my closet. Thigh high boots used to be reserved for superheroes and the super sexy, but I love adding a delicate ruffle to a sharper look to add a touch of femininity. 

PINTEREST LOOK FOR LESS

Dresses are fun, rompers are cute (although they usually ride up too short for my taste), but jumpsuits... jumpsuits are the COOLEST. Blogger Kat from With Love from Kat looks stunning in this periwinkle blue jumpsuit. I couldn't help but gravitate towards this image when it came across my Pinterest feed, and I love that she chose such a standout color for this strong ensemble. The periwinkle blue really pops thanks to the understated nude accessories and the fresh white mani is just the cherry on top. This jumpsuit looks great dressed up, but could easily be worn on a casual day out if paired with some strappy flat sandals and a tote.
