I'm a little late to the party and that's because, somehow, I deleted the email from Brooke and didn't know I was one of the 25 bloggers this month until yesterday. When I saw Brooklyn's post and saw my name at the bottom, I realized I was supposed to be part of it. So I took some outfit pictures yesterday evening and here we are. This also explains why, I talked about taking a blogging break on Tuesday and yet, here is another post only 2 days later...
EDIT: I changed the date and time of this post and Tuesday's post so the post where I talked about a blogging break would be on top.
Anyway, if you're interested in this collaboration, head over to Brooke's blog to sign up. But remember, space is limited!
So here is the inspiration Brooke gave us this month...
|from Because Shanna Said So|
Here's how I wore it... (Sorry for the dark pictures. I may re-take these later)
|Flannel: Goodwill || Dress: Old Navy in the spring (similar) || Tights: Old Navy || Boots: Gifted|
I got this plaid flannel shirt from Goodwill a couple years ago when Pearson and I dressed as "Canada" for a winter Olympics party. I love it and I wear it often, but I've never thought to wear it over a dress. I really like the look.
|T-Shirt: OLD || Boots: Target OLD|
Since I love these leggings so much, I decided to try them without the dress. Usually I don't like wearing leggings for pants, because they aren't pants. But I thought this might be okay because the flannel shirt is long and the leggings are pretty loose for leggings. I was right!
Especially when I tied the shirt around my waste to hide my bum! I love this look! Oh and I switched out the nicer ankle boots for a fun combat-ish boot. Which reminds me... The girl in the original inspiration picture was wearing brown boots and a tan cardigan. I didn't do that because, for some reason, I still can't get on board with the whole mixing brown and black thing. I don't know why.
So that's how I wore it... Last night on my back patio in the dark... Several different ways because I couldn't decide what I wanted...
And here are all the other ladies who participated this month...
Be sure to check them all out! We all styled our looks differently so get some inspiration!
