dawn's sunshine

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: the royal treatment.

Today's Inspiration is:
Hilary Duff.
I totally used to watch 
the show Lizzie McGuire.
I thought Hilary  had great style, even back then.

My best friend, since 8th grade, gave me my purse for Christmas.

My purple blouse was thrifted.

My purple boots were thrifted.

You might be wondering what my outfit has to do with the inspiration? I didn't wear black and white, nor a polka dot sweater. I think the basic style concept is similar: long sleeve patterned top, slim cut pants, and ankle boots. That's my justification.

President's Day
Spending time with my love is one of my favorite things. Today we cleaned a little bit.
Yesterday we played the game Last Word
I won twice. He said I always win that game.
I hope that isn't true.

My blog friend Dawn from Suitcase Vignettes nominated me for the sunshine award clear back in January. Here are her questions and my answers. They've been sitting in my drafts.
Yes, I'm slow.
1. What is the funniest movie you have ever seen?  
I don't know what the funniest movie I've ever seen is, but a movie I laughed all the way through was How to Be
I've never completely watched any of the
 Twilight movies cause, it's not my scene.
I wasn't expecting much How to Be,  but I actually really enjoyed this movie. 

2.  Do you wanna bring sexy back?
I don't know what you mean by this?
I don't think sexy ever left. Did it?

3. While using a public restroom, do you hover or roll the dice and sit down?

Sometimes I hover. Sometimes I'm too lazy, and roll the dice.Yes, laziness is a theme with me.

4. Who was your hottest teacher? 
Do you mean junior high teacher? High school teacher? College teacher? or Guitar teacher? you decide.    

 5. Have you ever been on T.V. ? 

Yes. I want to say more than once, but maybe I'm not remembering properly. I know for sure, at least one commercial.

6.  Have you ever found anything in your parent's bedroom that was questionable?  

Um which parent? and yes, although that could be debatable. I definitely found something outside, at one parent's house, and in the kitchen, at another's. When they were together, no I never found anything questionable, but I was little then.

7. When was the last time you played air guitar? 

I don't know, but the last time I played the real guitar was today.

8. When did you last laugh until you cried and what was so funny? 

I think it was a story my cousin told me. I'm sure we were making fun of someone or something.

9.  What would be the hardest thing for you to give up?  

Carbohydrates. I couldn't live without them. The end.

10. What was your most embarrassing moment?

I've said this before hereAny accidental flashing. Let's just leave it at that. Shall we? ;)


  1. I bet Daisy would like How to Be, she really likes Pattinson due to Twilight

  2. I've never heard of 'How to Be' before!
    Omg I'm the same with carbohydrates!!
    And you've been in a commercial?? Whattt!!? This is AWESOME!

    P.S Your purple boots are making me swoon!! LOVE!!!


  3. I'm sure we were making fun of something or someone as well. But then it could have just been some freaking crazy crap from my life as well. You know how it is around here. Love ya..

  4. It's so strange to think of Hillary Duff as a grown up now! She does have a really cute personal style, I always like seeing her in street clothes. Your interpretation of this outfit is really fun, I like how you went with a different graphic sweater, the same feeling is still there!

  5. I didn't even know that movie existed! sounds interesting though. and gosh, I was such a big Hilary Duff fan when I was a lot younger. that show, the movies she played in, her music - I loved it all! good old times :P
    oh and I think you've nailed the idea of that ensemble. a patterned sweater, classy jeans and booties. job well done, I would say ;)

    Maikeni blogi - part of me

  6. why would you ever give up carbs?? i never could! you look stunning in these pics, teddi! the one where you say the purple shirt was thrifted is such a gorgeous picture of you!

  7. I always love the way you dress! The sweater is amazing, but I loved the boots very very much! You were so lucky to find them! Such a coincidence, I mentioned purple in my post yesterday - an email a frien sent to me to boost self-esteem!
    You look so gorgeous wearing purple! (and other colors too!!!!)

  8. Totally love all of the purple! The sweater is great, and LOVE the purple boots!


  9. This post was hilarious. Amen to the carbohydrates, girl! Right there with ya! I watched Lizzie McGuire too! Hilary Duff is one of my role models. I think she's been one of the few Disney child stars to handle fame fairly gracefully.

  10. yepes! i do see the resemblance! the sweater, the skinny jeans and the boots. Your purple boots rocks! How I wish our weather here allow us for wearing boots but boo! weather in Malaysia and Singapore is just too warm for anything!

  11. i love the look. you really made it your own with the purple sweater! carbs are definitely tough to give up, but shopping has been even harder!!!

  12. Your outfit is far more creative than the Hillary's one ! Even if she's cute !
    Your artwork is beautiful !

  13. my eyes fell in love with those purple boots! hottttt!

  14. great post!!! love ur those purple boots

  15. I've never seen the twilight movies either! Thought I was the only one! haha

  16. amazing post!!! I love the blouse, it's so cool!!!


  17. Your outfit is totally something Lizzie McGuire would wear, even if its not in Hillary's color scheme. Ahh I miss good Disney shows, that or I miss being their target demographic :(.

  18. What commercial were you in? Can we look it up??
