Blogger inspiration mashup

I’m still here, but the holidays have been eating up all my time and making picture-taking drop to the bottom of my list.  Also making outfit design drop to the bottom of my list, meaning I wore repeats Monday and Tuesday.  Today, however, I pulled together looks from two bloggers into my take on a single outfit.

My inspirations were these:

Obviously these weren’t hard looks to mash up – both feature a striped shirt and dark cardigan.  One has a scarf and the other has red pants.  I chose to grab those two aspects and came up with this look:

The pieces are simple enough:

  • Black and white striped shirt (J.Jill)
  • Black boyfriend cardigan (Michael Kors, found at Marshalls)
  • Red jeans (Bandolino, found at Marshalls)
  • Blue/Purple infinity scarf (Simply Vera Wangs at Kohls)
  • Black and Brown purse (Brahmin bought used on ebay for a steal)
  • Black Shoes (Josef Seibel found on
  • Nail Polish (Black Pearl by Chanel, my christmas gift to me)
In a perfect world I would have a mustard scarf, but I don’t so I went with one of my good colors.


After today I will be off work until the new year, and will be posting intermittently.  There are some days when the list of chores is long and I won’t be leaving the house.  Take my word for it, I will not be dressing in anything other than grubbies to clean the garage.  However I may end up with new clothing and almost certainly will end up hitting after christmas sales, so I should have lots to show you in the new year!


Happy Holidays
