Get the Look - Golden Gingham

We all know there are seven days in a week. I use two of those days to post full outfits on this here blog. I wish I had the time and energy to post an #ootd or #wiw five times per week. Maybe one day when I get more organized and actually schedule posts, it could possibly happen, but I am not holding my breath. 

If you follow me on Instagram (@shannasaidso) you will see that every now and again I will post an outfit of the day, which never seem to make it to the blog. Why? I don't know.

So, I am toying with the idea of taking one Instagram #ootd pic each week, recreating the look I wore and designing a style board for you to shop off of, that is of course if ya like what ya see. 

I posted this outfit a couple of weeks ago and a few people seemed to have "liked" it. Even my fashion buddy, Annie, put her own twist on it.

Said look:

Where to shop for it:
Gold Gingham

So, what do you think? More of these? Be honest. I want to continue to write posts that I enjoy, but also want you ladies to find them beneficial and fun too. I like win-win scenarios.


In completely other news, there is a fun little game going on in blog land called "Five Things - Tag Your It"....or something like that. Anyway, my lady friend, Erin, so kindly tagged me. Now I get to chat about some this and thats, things that you may not already know about me or that I haven't talked about on the blog. These kinds of "games" always seem to stump me. Like I wanna be funny, or interesting or dazzling, but at the end of the day, I am a pretty simple gal. So sorry in advance if I bore you. 

I have had a crush on this man since I was in the 7th grade and 
used to doodle his name all over my book covers. 
You know the doodles...
"Shanna loves Ross"..."Ross is hot"..."I love Ross"..."Ross is fine". 
You know you did it too. And here we are, married for almost 13 years.

Do you see a pattern here? Evidently we like to make kissy faces when we pose.
The apple doesn't fall far. You should see all the ones I have of us on my phone. 
Puckers pop up every other picture.

I have been told on numerous occasions that I look like Sarah Michelle Gellar. 
I'll take what I can get. What do you think? Sometimes I see it. Sometimes I don't.

Wigs make everything more fun. It's quite embarrassing how many I own. 
Need to borrow one? I just might be your girl.

Last but definitely not least, I am all about kickin' back with a cheap, 
but deelish glass (or three) of Apothic Red wine.

And there you go sister kitties...five things you may or may not have known about little 'ol me!
Now I tag Yi-Chia, Andrea, Dusty, Holly and Katie.

Laters, baby.
Man, I haven't spouted out that line in awhile. Sometimes I really do miss Christian Grey.

Love all the wigs that you own - so fun! I don't even own one. Maybe that's why my life is not as fun :)

This new type of outfit post is great... would love to see more of them! I love the fur scarf and oversized suglasses on your little fashionistas. That is so sweet that you've known your husband since junior high!

Avril x said...

Oh yes, I like that outfit idea..and love the one you've posted. I need more yellow in my life I think. Also really enjoyed your 5 loves - so cute and it's answered the nagging question I've had for a while where I've wondered who you remind me of - SMG of course! Avril x

Courtney said...

So fun Shanna! And I loved that outfit, I knew Annie had copy-catted you before I even read her post that day!! Now that says a lot my stylish friend;)

Danavee said...

I have heard that a series called Crossfire is similar to the 50 Shades series! I'm hunting for book one now!

I'm always down for your fashion advice, so the boards seem fabulous!

I can totally see Sarah Michelle Gellar! You are both beautiful!!

SMD @ lifeaccordingtosteph said...

I like the where you can buy it posts.

Love your five. I've known my husband since 7th grade too, but love didn't bloom for us until after college. We've been together 10 years now, married for over two.

Lobster Meets Peach said...

You are too cute! And I miss I could wear yellow but it is just not my color.

Jacqueline said...

You DO look like Sarah Michelle Gellar! I think that's a pretty awesome thing - you're both gorgeous!

I love the idea of your #ootd posts! Go for it girlie!

And Christian Grey... who doesn't miss him from time to time?!

Have a good one, doll!

Amy Shaughnessy said...

Only the red wine for you? No white? :) I'm a chardonnay kind of girl. My kicking back time is in front of the tv with my wine. This mama needs to unwind after a long day! LOVE the outfit and board. I think it is a good idea. I've done one here and there and I think it is a good post idea.

Hi Shana,

Thanks for sharing!

TheTinyHeart said...

Sarah said...

Such a cute idea!!! Please do it! My wallet may not like it but I do!!

Anonymous said...

Absolutely love this outfit! Mustard pants are my must find for summer. And talk to me about Apothic Red. I've been told to try it. Is it dry? Sweet? Flavored? I'm picky with reds.

My-cliffnotes said...

I love this!! I think you should do the Instagram thing

Alex[andra] said...

The outfit it great! I wish I could pull of yellow but I feel like it makes me look too pale. It only works when I'm tanned!

I love the Like Mother Like Daughter photos!

Unknown said...

Love your outfit and i adore Sarah Michelle Gellar.


Kym said...

Your 5 things are so fun...I totally see the Sarah Michelle Gellar thing that the view from your house in #5?? Major envy going on!


Anonymous said...

Yes, you should do more of these posts.

How sweet that you married your junior high crush!

Jamie said...

This is a great idea (and a very cute outfit)!

I'm just laughing to myself about 7th grade Shanna writing "Ross is fine" in her notebook, haha so cute


Delusions of Grandeur said...

Shanna, I love the idea of instagramming an outfit! Like you, it is so so so hard for me to schedule posts more than a couple times a week - I really don't know how people do it. And I can't believe your crush on Ross goes back to the 7th grade - so great!

Katie said...

I love this idea and your outfit! And I totally miss me some Christian G. as well haha!

Carly said...

Yes please, I love this ootd board idea!!!

And I heart those wig pictures, hysterical!


Lacey at Sunny + Turquoise said...

You're hilarious I love all of your pics and captions! So odd that you DO look so much like her!! love your blog :)


Kathrin@shopschoolsleep said...

Yeah Christan Grey went cold as quickly as he was hot....still a good read haha. Love your outfits and I totally debated going to Target and buying the floral skirt/ stripped top you posted on bank account stopped me hahaah

Jeans and a Teacup said...

Haha...I just did a Five Things post today where I mentioned that I met my husband in 7th grade! And I see the SMG resemblance!

Janice said...

I love wigs too! I always pick my halloween costume based on what kind of wig I could wear! The past few years I have been Honey Boo Boo, Katy Perry, Snooki, and Kate Gosselin...all wigs I can't really use for any other costume but all fun!

Tiffany said...

The kissy faces. Too much cuteness, once again! And apothic red is amazingly yummy for the price! Also, Ross is I love it! I didn't realize you had been in luuuurve for so long ;-)

I am still unclear how to properly style the bootie. Are they only good with skinnies or can we do boyfriend jeans too? Can you do an Ask Shanna post? Thanks!

Sheena Rae said...

I always joke about how much money and time I'd save if I just bought a wig!

Samantha @ Designer in Teal said...

I LOVE this new outfit post idea! I'm always looking at fashion blogs wishing I could find their gorgeous clothes (including you)

XO Samantha

tara said...

Yup, you totally look like SMG just like I look like CRJ. Damn, we are basically celebrities!

FitTravelerAJ said...

YAY for learning more about you Shanna! Love it!! And I like the idea of your Instagram #ootd and posting about it on the blog :-)


Bri said...

You should totally start something completely new..WOTD = Wig of the Day Haha! love it!

Taylor @ Pink Heels Pink Truck said...

You should totally do the get the look could even add how to either dress it up more or dress it down (depending on how you actually wore the outfit) ;) I know, I know...more work. ;) LOL xoxo

Sandra said...

I really am starting to fall in love with that many possibilities for my closet... And loved reading the 5 things! I can totally see the celebrity resemblance, but you have a cuter nose! :)

Allison said...

SO presh that you've been crushin' on your Ross since 7th grade. That is adorable.

Oh and I love me some wigs too. I probably don't own as many as you, but I enjoy playing dress up. Is Ross supposed to look like Tim McGraw in that picture? Because he does!

Jenn @ WLB said...

I love this outfit post idea! I don't have the time or the patience take pictures of all 7 of my outfits! In other news, I think I can recreate this outfit with pink instead of yellow! (although I wish I had the yellow)

Whitney said...

When I was a teenager, I was called Buffy ALL. THE. TIME. Then in college? Avril Lavigne. So weird, haha!

I actually purchased that shirt, but in orange. Any suggestions on how to wear it?

Kristin said...

I absolutely love that outfit - the yellow jeans are so happy and sunny, and work so well with the gingham! Love it!


Darcy said...

I just found your blog and am in love! So glad I did and I cannot wait to read more :).

Amber said...

YES, I love this idea for a post. I always want at least one of the things you're wearing in your OOTD posts. :)

Your facts are so fun. Your girls are too cute. I LOVE kicking back with a glass of cheap wine. YUM!
