Ootd: Sincerest form of flattery

First thing's first: holy crap, 40 followers!! I am so excited! Hello to each and every one of you, and I love you all.

Hi everybody! Hope you had a marvelous weekend! I'm sad to see it end, but at least I don't have any major tests due for awhile, so I have a weight or three off my shoulders for the time being.

Today I wanted to share an outfit that was inspired by two of my favorite bloggers, Maria and Kim. I saw Maria pairing this skirt with this top a long time ago, and it inspired me to track the top down so I could duplicate it. If you read her blog, you know that Kim has an affinity for the color mint, so I added this cardigan in the spirit of her romantic, girly style. Kim and Maria really got me into fashion, blogs, and Anthropologie last year, and because of them I can honestly say that my closet (and life!) are much more colorful, beautiful and put-together. Before I found their blogs, I had no idea how to dress myself and thought that ill-fitting black dress pants and a poorly-made top from high school was a "nice" outfit. I think I've come a long way since then, and though I still have a long way to go, I'm so grateful to all the bloggers who helped me on my way. Thank you for inspiring me to learn about fashion and figure out how to dress, lovely ladies. If I can ever be half as stylish as you, I'll have it made!

Have you always been into fashion and dressing up, or have blogs (or something else!) inspired you to put more thought into it?

  1. That is one pretty outfit. I wasn't really into fashion when I was younger. I started looking at style blogs during my last year of college, and just like you got inspired and excited about clothing. Now that I'm in grad school I feel more put together and I know I also have a long way to go, but the path along the way has been fun so far.

  2. Cute! I love the rust and mint together! I have been interested in fashion for most of my adult life, but I never really knew where to start until I discovered the blogging world a few years ago.
