It’s “Inspiration Monday” time again, y’all! This time, the two birds served up Taylor Momsen’s winter layers of navy, black, and grey. My interpretation is definitely on the looser side of the scale, as I focused mainly on layering the navy and grey neutrals. And because of the recent rains, I started with my navy blue rain boots.
I wore this outfit for a more casual day at the library last week, and then rewore it for a gallery reception of the Wildwood books and artwork this past weekend at the Multnomah County Central Library. (Have you read the Wildwood Chronicles? Highly recommended!)
Yes, I’m wearing a t-shirt my mom gifted to me this past summer, the one that reads, “My y’all is authentic.”
Details: Navy polka-dotted skirt: Lands’ End, gift-carded last spring / Grey t-shirt: The Home T, gift from my mom this summer / Grey cardigan: August Silk via Nordstrom Rack, winter 2012 / Grey fleece-lined leggings (worn as tights): Fred Meyer, this fall / Navy rain boots: Hunter, this winter / Black rain coat: London Fog, gift-carded last month / Red lipstick: Wet n Wild Mega Last liquid lip color in ‘Cherry on Top,’ new
By the way, I am LOVING the rain because (a) we really need it and (b) with the moisture in the air, my hair is cooperating again with me! My hairstyle of natural waves comes from being in a messy bun all morning.
And here’s me ready to walk in the rain in my new London Fog raincoat. I love the feeling of the slightly blurry shots below that Sam captured.
Here are also a few snapshots that Sam captured while at the “Inside Wildwood” exhibit:
Finally, for “Mix It Monday,” here’s a look at other ways I’ve worn this navy polka-dotted circle skirt. I definitely like to pair it with stripes or gingham!
