So Pinterest has taken over our lives. All of our free time (and even not-so free time—writing this article was a serious test in discipline!) is now spent perusing the awe-inspiring photographs, crafty DIYs, mouth-watering recipes, and, above all, endless fashion. We could browse Pinterest until we reach the end of the internet. With so many creative (jobless? Where do they find the time?!) individuals creating their own unique anthologies of things they love, it was hard to choose these featured favorites. Good ahead, take a long lunch and hope for rain this weekend—these pinners are addictive.

The immensely talented fashion illustrator and style consultant knows her niche. Her affinity to beautiful things is apparent in the super feminine vibe of her carefully cultivated boards. Whimsical titles like “Perfectly Pretty," “Wedding Wishes," and “Take Me to the Beach” set the tone for what’s inside.
