Circular Inspiration

By the lack of leaves on the ground, you may guess that this is from a few weeks ago.  You'd be right.  This was an outfit I had in mind to use for Stripes Week, but then I had too many striped outfits.  And now it's a couple weeks later.

This outfit was inspired by this pin, because I really liked the green jeans with the navy stripes.  Then I felt like I had worn it before, and searched through my archives.  It's really similar to this outfit that I wore back in March.  Inspiration is a strange thing.  I think I came up with the first outfit on my own.  Then did I like the Pinterest outfit because I remembered liking that combination when I wore it myself?  I don't know.  And when I clicked through to the original source, I'm pretty sure she's not wearing navy at all, but black.  So, my interpretation wasn't even true.  The internet is so weird.

I'm linking up with Pinned It & Did ItWhat I Wore and What I Wore to Work.

Cardigan & Top: Gap
Skirt: Target
Shoes: BCBGeneration


  1. Another super cute combo! There is so much inspiration out there I can never keep track of where I originally saw it half the time unless it's documented on Pinterest :)

  2. looking lovely in this stripe top and green pencil skirt! <3

    Check out my latest post at the AX Paris party! :)

  3. Haha! So true. But either way, this is really pretty!

  4. It's not just the internet that's a crazy place, but our thought processes, too! Inspiration, reverse inspiration, it's all mind-boggling. What's crazy is that I don't own a green skirt-- I love this one and the outfits you create around them.

  5. Both of your outfits are great! I can see why you were so inspired! I've done this before. I get this idea and then I think hmmm...where did this come from?

  6. Stopping by from the WIWW! This pencil skirt is such a great color! Looks great with the stripes.

  7. Love the navy stripes with green and have done it myself!

  8. I am a sucker for stripes and there is just something great about green and navy together

  9. "The internet is so weird." <-- truer words have never been spoken :) I really like navy and green together, so this outfit is a big win for me!!

  10. I love this outfit (and all the other one's posted)! Happy to be a new follower.
