Last week I did a post titled “How to Use Pinterest as Your Shopping Assistant”.
(If you didn’t read the post, I suggest you do so you know what I’m talking about! Don’t worry… I’ll wait.)
And guess what, you guys?
I put my money where my mouth is and found myself a super awesome outfit for St. Patrick’s Day.
Here’s the thing: I’m Swedish (just in case the height and love of vodka didn’t tip you off) and have never gone out for St. Paddy’s. Hell, I don’t even like Guinness. But a couple of my Irish friends insisted I go out drinking with them.
((Well… if you insist…))
It was raining on Saturday, so a trip to the mall was just what I needed to get out without getting wet. But first? I went on Gap’s website to find myself something to try on.
After pinning several items of interest, I headed to the mall to try them on.
Since my local mall has free WiFi, I was able to reference my pins while trying things on, and then post pictures on Instag.ram and Twitter for instant expert opinions. The green striped tee was a unanimous “yes”.
This is where the awesome part starts.
Equipped with my new shirt and a beer mug shaped hat with “Beer Me” embroidered on the front, my friends (along with our husbands) headed to the local Irish Pub.
And even though my drink of choice was Belvedere Pink Grapefruit and soda, I had a pretty damn good time.
I’d say this Pinterest Challenge was a success!
