A white shirt

for Inspiration Monday

 When the ladies of Two Birds Boutique choose an

 to inspire a personal look.

This is my version.

To see how others wore the L.C. look go to
 Inspiration Monday: Ladies Night.

Today's inspiration is:
Lauren Conrad
 She was my favorite character on 
Laguna Beach and The Hills.

Today I picked up:

The Fame Game by Lauren Conrad
at the library.

I've read all of her other books
 in the 
L.A. Candy book series.

Instead of wearing a scarf around my neck,
I'm wearing a scarf/bandanna in my hair.
I got it from the Warped Tour concert July 2008.

My pants were a birthday present from
my sister n-law, brother, and nephew.

The boots once belonged to my mom.

My mom also made my copper bracelets.

The shirt has a personal meaning to me because the image could be a guy or a girl holding a guitar.

There are lyrics written on sheet music inside the image.

Some of the words are:

 ...When, I write,
try to listen, But
motions deeper. 1 min
belies of flavor...

These art journal pages from July 2012
were inspired by
In the Sun Class by Natalie Malik.

If I spent all day in bed...

pillows, blankets, paper, pens, phone,
my laptop computer, games..
I might want to play board or card games.
I like Rummy ScrabbleScattergories,
AdvertisingLast Word, and Yahtzee.

She had a weakness for boots.
She didn't need anymore. 
She owned 17 pairs,
(Since this art page was written in July,
I own more than that now).  ;)

She knew if she found another pair that fit well,
and were a good price, she would buy them.
She liked all kinds of colors and styles, ankle, calf, knee, over the knee lengths, heels, and flats.
They made her feet happy.

  1. I love it!! And I love Lauren too ;)

  2. I love your white tee, the looseness and the fun print makes it really cool and fun. (Plus, it's amazing with the striped pants, it's very graphic looking and I like how you broke up the black and white color scheme with the drown boots.)

  3. 17 pairs of boots??
    funny, I just did my last article on about boots... and I like those you're wearing that once belonged to your mom... you dressed just like lauren conrad in deed.. take care!
    and thanks for the comments! :)

  4. I share your opinion about boots.. and footwear overall, to be honest :P if you like it and it's affordable then go for it, right!? ;)
    anyway, your outfit is really cool too! I like it how those pants, the scarf and your unique tee make a lovely match. great job, Teddi! :)

  23. Great outfit Teddi! You've really stayed true to the inspiration photo but given it such a cool, eclectic vibe. I like the stripes and caramel together, and I wish I could find tops with great prints like this one. Androgynous photos get you thinking which I love.
