 Today's Inspiration Monday!

When the ladies Megan and Nora of Two Birds Boutique
choose an outfit to inspire a look. 

Here's my version of the look.
To see how others styled it,
go to inspiration monday: spy games.

Today's inspiration is:
Blake Lively
of course I liked her in Gossip Girl,
I'm so sad that show is over.
What did you guys think of the ending?

I also liked Blake in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movies.

My mom made the boot chains in December 2011.
My boots and purse are thrifted.

My art journal page from 1-7-13

Sometimes she felt like a shadow of her former self.
The one she was from before.
Black could be perfect for her mood.
It matched the color of her soul.
She didn't care if anyone else got the joke,
as long as she was laughing.
Hardy har har.

This zine called Taboo was made
by Brittney from Flow Disruption.

This gorgeous magnet was Made by Nicole.
It's my favorite magnet.  :)

My road trip photos of New Mexico

I've had this song playing in my head lately.
We listened to the Starfish album by The Church on our road trip.
Years ago, I teased my guy for listening to it all the time.

"...'Cause it's here, it's where the air is clear,

Where far off things could be quite near.

No repairs are needed, just a spark"...
The Church


  1. I watched the first season of GG with Daisy, but we never picked up the 2nd season. She and I liked it, but somehow we moved on to other shows/movies.

  2. Teddi! Wow! I love your version much more than Lively's. Great effort. The boots especially are quite fine. Are you following me? We should.

  3. wow, that was an unusual look for Blake, usually she wears more feminine outfits. (Not that I'm complaining, i love this!) I really love your take on this, it seems right up your alley and your boots are completely killer and the polka dotted scarf adds a great little bit of fun!

  4. I have a confession ... I've never seen Gossip Girl. I did see Travelling Pants, though, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The black and white accessories look really nice with this look (and your mom's boot chains!). The white gives a nice pop. And those photos of New Mexico - ugh, I wish I could just hop into a pixel and magically appear there. It looks beautiful.

    PS - Thank you for the shout out! :')

  5. GG is (was) not my thing so I know practically nothing about it.. but those films you mentioned! oh my, I LOVED those! though I didn't notice/know Blake was playing there, hehe. after watching the first film I knew I had to go to Greece. and I did. twice :)
    anyway, I like it how you have spiced up your classy boots by using those chains and charms.

  9. love the inspiration, but your version is even better!!!


  10. I LOVE your jacket and the boots!


  11. I love the jacket teddi! And your polka dot scarf is so cute!! Great job with the inspiration.

  12. Loving the polka dot scarf. Journaling is beautiful as always, you need to make cards or something that you can sell with your art.

  13. Teddi! thanks! Thank you for coming to say some nice things. Mountains are great for no tornadoes and lots of water for our desert climate. I think I am following you but I'm not sure. Come on back and join, too?

  14. Cute look. I like how you tried to copy her look.

  16. gorgeous scarf! I love the polka dots you look great!

  17. MAN, you nailed this look Teddi. Great job and how adorable is your jacket with the white stitching??? Sorry I don't think I have ever caught one of those shows but I bet they had some good fashion. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  18. oh i love how you drew inspiration from a celebrity outfit- it's pretty similar! and how crafty of your mom for making boot chains :)

  19. I'm crazy for that great jacket... I love the contrast stitching detail!

  20. Hey There,
