i heart aqua

My outfit was influenced by inspiration monday.

That's when the ladies Nora and Megan of
 Two Birds Boutique chose an outfit to inspire a look.
Here's my version of the look.
To see how others were inspired,

go to:

inspiration monday: quirks.

Today's inspiration is:
Eva Mendes

My blouse was thrifted.

My belt and shoes were thrifted.

A journal my friend made me for Christmas

My art journal page from June 15, 2013
The last time I rode a boat was the huge ferry with two levels When I went to Ellis Island in September 2011.
Even though I took, Dramamine, I still got sea sick.
I even got sick when we paddled a canoe at canoe fest
 in May 2010.
I also got sick in the boat when we went
snorkeling in Acapulco in October 2010.

I think I heart aqua most, when I'm on land.


  1. I love that top and your necklace Teddi! And you had the perfect headscarf to match hers! I like your look better :) That journal your friend made you is so pretty!

  2. Your outfit is spot on! I think I like it better than the inspiration photo, actually. And I love that photo of your nephew and dog! Sweet!

  3. I love you in aqua! I totally think you rocked the look way better than Eva! Your belt is so lovely!
    I wish I had your handwriting!!

  4. Eva Mendes still oozes with sex appeal even with that simple yet chic outfit! She's a fabulous inspiration Teddi.
    Your shoes are identical to hers! What a steal!!! ヅ

  6. This outfit reminds me a bit of Mexico because it is the sort of thing people wear, because the weather is nice and warm. Not like here :(

  7. Loving your inspirational outfit Teddi ! I like aqua color so much and I think it looks so good with your hair color ! You are always so creative, I love reading your posts and your nephews are always uber cute :-) Kisses

  8. So loving this outfit
    Everything about it

  9. I kinda wished my grandma's house had a dog back in my younger days. There were a few random cats with no names that would roam the yard sometimes though.

    She was a terrible entertainer. Small house, no real tv, no games, and nothing to do outside but try to climb the tree.

  10. I love your T-shirt and belt! You definitely interpreted the Inspiration Monday so well! And your husband is so talented, building things! I loved the journal your friend gave to you! I am not sea sick, but because it seems I am a bit girlie (to some people_, when travelling by sea they think I will be sea sick. Not that it's girlie, sorry, not what I wanted to say. I mean, that's the image some people have about being sea sick. I had no idea that you could be - but alas, we all have our "things" :) You look very beautiful, as usual!

  11. Very cute outfit, Teddi!! I love that belt!

  12. Haha, Teddie, your outfit looks so cool! I love your belt and the shirt!! Your journal page is wonderful and I love the tiny boat...Do you know what, I am seasick as you and I always love to be back on land...even if I love to dive, I got sick on the boat ;) ♥ Conny

  13. You got seasick in a canoe?! Poor Teddi. I always like seeing your inspiration photos because you manage to stay true to the spirit of the outfit but also make it your own. I love the look of headscarves in summer but can somehow never pull them off. They always slide off the back of my head. This one's really pretty on you.

    Your friend made a beautiful journal for you! What a thoughtful gift.

  14. I love the pattern on your top, so pretty! I get sea sick too, and motion sickness in cars, buses, pretty much anything that moves so I just have to start straight ahead!

  15. how do you come up with clothes that always look like the ones on the celebs?.. are you secretly carrie bradshaw and have an enormous walk-in closet too? haha.. anyway..digging the bandana on your head... and the journal page.. I also get super sea sick on boats.. hate them.. the last boat ride I took was a month ago, from playa del carmen to cozumel island and damn it took me 3 hours to get over that dizziness, nausea and stomachache.. not kidding :S

  16. You were spot on with this one - looks great! I love the color theme of this post too. :)
