Inspire Me Today...

stylish mom, fashion tips, fashionista mom, stylish mom, working mom, career woman,

Charcoal grey mermaid-style skirt (similar Club Monaco Minkie flare wool grey skirt)
Fuschia pink bow wedges (similar from Kate Spade, Isaac Mizrahi, or Charlotte Olympia)
Gucci-inspired purse (similar Michael Kors print purse)
Flower statement necklace (tind similar Dorothy Perkins white flower necklace, or Forever21)
Vintage pearl flower earrings (similar from Kate Spade)


What do you do when you feel like your fashion sense is reaching a rut? For me, I seek inspiration from ordinary women who live an ordinary lives all over the blogosphere. I can relate to them more than I can relate to celebrities. These wonderful ladies are secretaries, daughters who stay at home, single career women, stay at home moms or wives, working moms, financial analysts, business owners, etc.

For example, for this look I got inspired by the beautiful Kileen from (again!) Cute & Little, my favorite fashion blogger from Dallas, TX. I would never, in a million years, would think to pair a navy jacket with a charcoal grey skirt, though I have both pieces sitting sweetly in my wardrobe. Look how she did it here in the picture, it's totally gorgeous, isn't it! Her sense of color is just amazing!


Yet I cannot avoid adding a touch of LeeAnne with this pair of shocking, fuschia pink bow wedges! The whole ensemble is in neutral colors, I just had to add something that would pop. And popped, they did!
