You're The Inspiration

Earrings: Icing by Claire's, $4
Lavender cardigan: Banana Republic, $35
Guitar shirt: Old Navy, $5 (2007)
Red skirt: unknown brand, $0.56 (thrifted)
Black boots: Naturalizers brand from Famous Footwear, $40

I had a different outfit all planned for this red skirt today, but then I spied this look by the unparalleled Ms. Tania from What Would A Nerd Wear.

And I thought to myself, "Huh ... a red pencil skirt with a graphic tee and cardigan? I can do that." So I did. Truth to tell, I think Tania did it better. I really like that everything but the skirt is in the same black/white/gray palette of neutrals. If I had that option, I would have gone with it. My skirt is also a little longer than Tania's, and I prefer her length. A day of mass-skirt-alterations is in my future, methinks.

Still, I like how this turned out! Thanks, Tania, wherever you are.


  1. Outfit looks cute and i love your hair colour =)

  2. This is a cute outfit. I've been wondering what to do with my graphic tees, and this is a great idea. I'll have to try something like it.

  3. I talked about you and how awesome you are in my Friend Friday post today. Cheers!

  4. Thanks, Ravi and Jenn! And Lindsay, how sweet are you? Honestly, how sweet? =) Your kind words made me feel REALLY good inside.
