kissy kiss

Today is inspiration monday!
When the ladies Megan and Nora from 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: guilt-free day.

Today's inspiration is:
Elizabeth Olsen

I don't have a brocade skirt,
so I wore the brocade jacket my mom made.

My boots are thrifted.

Last fall, Maikeni blogi-part of me 
nominated me for this sunshine award. Now I'll answer question 10.|

X. You and junk food. What kind of relationship do you have?
I think our culture, promotes junk food far too often, instead of promoting healthiness. I'm talking about through advertising. It's all part of the capitalist idea, and making money.  I think junk food is addicting, and they make it that way on purpose.
 I know I'm addicted.

Lately I've been eating mini Kit Kats,
 Hershey's Cookies 'n' Cream Kisses,
and Hershey's Milk Chocolate Kisses

That being said, I am very particular about knowing the ingredients of  what I eat. I try to eat a balance of vegetables, protein, and carbohydrates in every meal. I'm far from perfect. I do like kisses though. ;)

My Art Journal page from February 6, 2013
I don't want flowers because they'll wilt and die,
 or I'll accidentally kill them, but I'll take your kisses anywhere, anytime, as long as you don't smell sour. 

..."(Because your kiss) your kiss
I can't resist
Because your kiss is on my list
Of the best things in life"Kiss on My List by Hall & Oates


  1. Wow, always loving your boots!! That jacket is pretty cute too!!

    I'm addicted to junk food, it's the best ever :)))

  2. I love the rounded collar on your jacket, and the brocade print which looks so dressy. I like that you kept the brocade element of the inspiration photo since that what I think made it so special.

    I agree about the junk food. I don't crave it unless I see it but when I do it can be hard to resist.

  3. That jacket is so gorgeous!!! So in love!! And the boots are FAB and moreover its thrifted its great

  4. I love the outfit! Nice jacket:)

  5. wow, your jacket indeed looks like her skirt! your mom did a great job! and those boots are super classy.
    when it comes to those sweets you were talking about then we don't have those in Estonia but we used to have and then I loved those :P and I agree when it comes to balance. one can eat pretty much everything as long as he/she knows where the limit is. that goes about everything in life actually :)

  6. your mom made that? what a beautiful piece!!! and who doesn't love (both kinds of) kisses?

  7. You look fabulous! Loving the boots!

  8. I love the way you interpreted this look and switched it up! You look great!

  9. I wish my Mum would make me a jacket like that!! So preeetty and I love the headband too!
    I like what you said about flowers- I feel the same too! CBC bought me a daffodil plant for Valentines two years ago and that was great because I planted it!

  10. did you get the olsen inspiration from my post?! :) haha just kidding.. she seems like a cool, laid back girl doesn't she?
    I like her... I saw her movie with that guy from How I met your mother, called "liberal arts"..loved it..
    looking cool teddi!

  11. great post honey, your look was amazing! and I think the same about flowers haha


  12. I like how you reversed your version of this outfit, that brocade jacket is so pretty! (I love brocade, it's so visually interesting.) Junk food is completely addictive, I don't want it if I haven't had it for a while but once I get started eating it, it's hard to stop craving it. (I read somewhere that it has to do with how our brain handles and reacts to processed sugars.)

  13. OMG ! Your mom is such and artist ! This vest is beautiful, and the whole look is amazing !
    What you say about junk food is so right ! Unfortunatly I'm addicted to fun food and don't listen to wise speeches :(

  14. Great outfit, and looks just like the inspiration!

  15. You and your guy look perfect together, love the metallic jacket it looks great with the boots, chocolate is also one of my fave treats!x

  16. The visit on my blog always make me smile :) and yes I have to say even if I eat healthy most of the time I am addicted to sweets and bread too :) the outfit you choose is really to my tast :) xox Conny

  17. I love the jacket! Loved that you changed the "order", so, she was wearing a black jacket with brocade skirt and you wore the brocade jacket with black skirt! I simply loved the way you interpreted the "inspiration"!
    Hahaha, guess who is also truly and faithfully addicted to junk food? Yes, me! My whole life! And my brothers are always complaining "you have to eat healthly!" I should, but don't want to... :)
    Thank you soooo much for all the sweet words about me! With a confidence boost like that, I had to smile - once more! Thank you so much again!

  18. I love your brocade jacket and how special that your Mum made it! Mmm I have a sweet tooth but am trying to cut back on chocolate and have fruit instead (not quite the same...)

  19. I love the brocade jacket your mom made! Both of these looks are really pretty and classy. :)

    You're so right about advertising, too. I think I'm lucky that I don't like most junkfood, but I still need buttery, salty microwave popcorn. ;)
