You're the inspiration


I was feeling feminine today and dressed accordingly.
I also took some inspiration from other bloggers when putting my outfit together.

Exhibit A: The skirt.

I have seen this skirt worn by many a fashion blogger in the blogging circuit, as I'm sure you have too.  It was made in a variety of colors, and each blogger has styled it their own special way.  I really liked the skirt when I saw it in other people's blogs, such as when Kendi of Kendi Everyday wore her gray one here, and I liked it even more when I found it brand new with tags still intact at Goodwill for $3.  Thank you Target for sending your leftover merchandise to the good people of Goodwill where good shoppers like me can take advantage of good deals.  Good job.

Exhibit B: The color of the skirt.

I got dressed late today, which means I got to do some morning reading beforehand.  After reading Kileen's post (from Cute and Little) about wearing white in the winter, I decided to give it a shot.  I quite liked the outcome.

I wanted to keep it simple but not overly monochromatic, so I wore burgundy tights for a dose of color.

What d'ya think?

My budget is extremely modest, as well. I've been relying on Christmas money, gift cards, and creativity lately, but I enjoy a good challenge!

@Robyn

I'm rediscovering lace lately, and I'm loving it!

Holy cow- I'm SO jealous. Seeing as I don't have even a Walmart in my little town, I don't expect we'll be getting any leftover merchandise annyy time soon. Lucky gal! I love that white skirt. You styled it just right!
