Craving Coral!

Wednesday = Oh, How Pinteresting with
Michelle at The Vintage Apple!

Photobucket


I decided to give the whole theme thing a try this week to shake things up a bit :)
I really wanted to do an awesome collage with pretty fonts...you know, the works.

BUT I don't have/know how to work Photoshop.
So if any of you know of a different program that makes awesome collages....
help a sista out?! ;)
.
My theme this week is Craving Coral!
Coral is my go-to shade in the spring & summer.
It has been for as long as I can remember.
Is it just me or does coral look good on just about any skin tone?!

On to the pins...

one//
I'm seriously considering buying either a coral or a mint cross body bag!
This is making me consider it even MORE ;)

two//
Oh, she's rocking 2 shades of coral - sassy!

three// 
Size 6... please, please, please!

four//
Perfect for a lunch date :)

 five//
Just YES.

six//
My style in a nutshell.
Living in Florida, I basically live in sundresses 3/4 of the year.

seven//
 Coral AND turquoise...I can't even handle this!
LOVE.

eight//
How cute are these nails?
And it even looks like something I can manage!

.
Like what you see?
You can find my pin boards here :)

So what do you ladies think...
Do you like when I do a theme
OR
when I just post my 10 favorite random pins?!

  1. Loving # 4 , #6 and #7. Love coral! I like pinteresting posts, but I will say I've been enjoying themed ones for myself and others too recently! Mine this week is Mint! Great post lady!

    Happy Wednesday!

  2. I love all of this! I think I love themed editions, because it's focused and cohesive. Pinterest is all-encompassing as it is, so I feel like themed editions are more of a thoughtful collection. But that's just my two cents! All of your prior non-themed posts were perfect too!

    Heck, do whatever you want to, girl! I love you either way! Always and always! From Texas to Florida!

  22. You can make beautiful collages on picnik until April 19th for FREE! yay! Sadly, picnik is closing on the 19th but there is new one to replace it called pic monkey! (but picnik is awesome you need to check it out!) Just hit the "library" tab and then you will see where it says collage! Loving that purse too!

  37. I love that lunchdate dress and those nails. so pretty!

    I usually use Power point for the collages, because I don't have Photoshop either. It's limited on what you can do, but it works.

    I like the theme pins. It gives so much inspiration to that one subject.

  38. LOVE the coral!! Sadly, I think it would wash out my already pale skin haha

    I do love that striped dres :) And your gma is the best for ordering those shoes for you! I hope you have a great rest of the week!

  41. I'm glad you decided on the theme ~thing. I'm really loving this color,too. It's really pretty. Oh,you should check out Photoscape. I think you can do collages on there,but not sure or check out robertsproductions.net for some photoshop tips (that's the site I use). Good luck!

  42. Loving coral!! I think that color is here to stay!! I like when you do a theme and when you pin random faves. Either way is fine by me! :-)

  43. Love the coral & white striped dress - I hear you on the sundresses in FL. Kids at school get worried when I show up in anything other than a dress, haha :)
    & love those pretty nails! May have to try that!

  46. Also...as far as collage-making google "Blog Stomp" it's a program I use on my mac but there is a Windows version . The only think is that it is not free, but I think it's pretty cheap if I remember correctly , like $30 maybe? I love is because it is SO easy to use!
