jack & kate plus me

Hey there, it's Inspiration Monday
 hosted by Two Birds Boutique.

This is what I wore. My skirt is thrifted.
The black material underneath is the lining.

Today's inspiration is:

Kate Bosworth
To see how other ladies were inspired,
by this outfit, and what they wore, go 

Kate Bosworth is wearing a sweatshirt,
and no, I'm not, because it's hot as all get out,
 here in Texas. 

Lucky for me Summer is just getting started,
meaning it's only going to get hotter. 

 Wasn't I saying I needed sunshine here Wednesday?
I just like to complain, don't I?
Those are both rhetorical questions.

As a matter of fact, as I type this, after 11 PM, 
 it's raining now. The thunder is howling and the lightening is flashing.

Yes, I'm sure you've seen me wear this t-shirt,
 many times before.

 I bought this concert t- shirt at the Warped Tour.

 It was the first time we saw Jack's Mannequin

 It was in July of 2008, blog post shown here.
We saw Jack's Mannequin again, in July 2009,
to check that out, look 

...As I’m swimming through this stereo
I'm writing you a symphony of sound

...As we rearrange these songs again
This mix could burn a hole in anyone
As I'm cutting through you track by track

I swear.. this mix could sink the sun
But it was you I was thinking of...

This is my mixed tape for her
It’s like I wrote every note with my own fingers-

 words from The Mixed Tape by Jack's Mannequin


  1. I always hate thunderstorms at night. I usually have to drive Miss Daisy home at night, and it's about a 30 min drive both ways, and last month I got stuck in two thunderstorms in a row. I just love rain that blocks almost all my vision or makes my car sluggish through the road.

  2. Great hair. love your color.

  3. I love your take as well. I see that you used the colours on Kate's outfit on your version : grey + mint green.
    Great idea! :) I am beginning to really enjoy Inspiration Monday. It is so fun!

    Btw, nice to meet you! :)


  4. one of my favorite looks is a concert tee with a cute skirt! i hope you're enjoying the thunderstorm!! i always love to curl up and read a book during storms!

  5. i like the inspiration today, but where are the sneakers Teddi!?!?! hahaha

    what's your hair color? i like it!


  6. I like it how you have combined a cool tee with such a brightly patterned skirt. very bold and at the same time stylish ;)

  7. I love concert tees! They're like a badge of honor! Love yours paired with this lovely skirt!

  8. Teddi, love your skirt ! I'd love it to go shopping with you, I have the feeling you always find original and very colorful items =)
    Also the t-shirt is nice ! I've been waiting for summer so much and now that it's finally hot I am already annoyed by it...the truth is that with the heat we should not be forced to work ! LOL ! I'd rather stay in bed and rest all day long ;)
    Kisses my friend !

  9. Teddi, you are going to laugh even more if you look at the necklace in my current blog post (in reference to your comment about bird necklaces!!!!) I am wearing almost the same necklace as you are there!!!
    This is such a cute outfit, I love the skirt! I almost wore a grey Sylvester the cat t-shirt yesterday to make the look, ah, hot Texas weather- what a contrast to cold London!

  10. Ted you are so rocker with that hair ... I love to put my hair as well ..
    Ted what do you think these new shoes that are using ... say it is platform?
    Here you're selling too .. this is what Kate is wearing!

  11. Hi! I have to say I agree! Skirts and sweaters can work! What do you think if we followed eachother? Kisses, Rita

  12. what a fun way to wear this! the t-shirt looks so much more dressed up with the skirt. i like it a lot! and btw, those animal print go janes are surprisingly comfy as long as you're okay with being 5 inches taller :)

  13. The weather sounds like England haha, one minute nice sunny weather and then the next rain and thunder! I love your take on the outfit, especially the skirt :) xx

  14. I love all your outfits but this is a particular favourite!!!

    Also, you're so right... I did get the Words of Affirmation! hahaha... I'm not entirely sure how it's so obvious or if perhaps you're just brilliant. <3 (I almost wrote I love you! and then realized that might be a give away ;)) hehe

    I honestly didn't know before I did the test though. Now it seems stupidly obvious. I constantly need people saying nice things and I always feel the need to say nice things to other people... but that's not bad entirely, is it? Maybe I should inbox message this...

  15. kate always looks amazing (:


    ps. Join my giveaway and win the most beautiful sapphire necklace!

  16. I always loved that outfit from kate.. digging the maxi skirts a lot lately!
    cool approach on the look.. and I love that you're always in every concert there is! haha.. how cool... there are only 2 things I always say is worth spending money on: trips to new places and music concerts.. that's it.. that's the only thing that motivates me to keep on working.. the rest is just irrelevant.

  17. I love the combination of the casual tee and the feminine skirt, and your hairstyle is awesome !!!

  18. you look great, love your take on kate bosworth's outfit!

  19. You look seriously adorable in these pictures. Some of my favorites of you! I think you're forgiven for not wearing a sweatshirt in the heat. I really don't understand how people wear actual clothes in the summertime. It puzzles me.

    May the force be with you.

  20. Cute! Kate B has a very good sense of style!
    I would love for you to visit my blog sometime!!

  21. You can file this under 'Randoms' have a very pretty side profile!

  22. I love how you paired it with a ponytail and tee shirt. It looks so breezy and summery (and music festival-y). ;)
