I love that Pinterest allows me to collect and categorise the stuff I find on the web each day. It's probably more about wishing and hoping for some, but I like the order of it all; it's a way for me to organise my thoughts and inspiration. Really, it's a mood board for a hopeful life.
I'm such a realist that I rarely pin anything that I couldn't actually achieve. I'm a daydreamer, but not much of a pie-in-the-sky dreamer. I want to know that the things I dream about can actually be achieved with a bit of ingenuity and a lot of hard work. So, not pinning castles in Italy, no not me.
There is one small exception. My 'Fash Style board'.
There's no way that many of the clothes I pin would ever suit me in a million. I'm either too fat, too old, too mainstream or too unable to walk in high heels. So, a little pie-in-the-sky dreaming never hurt anyone after all.
These shoes by Free People, pinned via The Farm Chicks blog (pinning 'via' something is lazy, really. I try not to do it - I'd rather click through to the original source and pin that. It's fairer and cleaner, but I do wonder about the ethics of it all and besides, by the time I found the pin and clicked through, they had sold out of the floral that I fancied...) are an exception. If you ask me, these babies would suit any wardrobe and any style. Free People ship to Australia for a flat $35.

Do you also hanker after clothes that really aren't you?
