negligent me

This post was supposed to be up last Monday,
 and it never happened. I blame it on a road trip.

So here's my Inspiration Monday, from a week ago.

This is my version.

The ladies Megan and Nora of Two Birds Boutique
 choose an outfit to inspire a look.
Today's inspiration is: 

Leona Lewis
to see how others styled the look go to
inspiration monday: the sweater.

My coat was thrifted.

My dress was thrifted.

My scarf was thrifted.

My Art Journal pages from Dec. 18, 2012
The only chains she liked were on her clothes
 or accessories.

Road trip photos
