like dorothy's dress

Today's  inspiration monday!

That's when the ladies Nora and Megan of
 Two Birds Boutique
chose an outfit to inspire an outfit.

Here's my version of the look.
To see how others were inspired,

go to:

inspiration monday: is it bad?

Today's inspiration is:
Rebecca Minkoff

My white t-shirt is from Target (over 5 years old).

I didn't have printed pants like the inspiration.
I thought my skirt pattern had a similar print.

My skirt was thrifted.

My ankle boots were thrifted.

The last time I saw the ocean was in August of 2012,
 while in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

I wonder when I'll see the beach again,
and where that will be?


  1. CUTE BOOTS!!!
    I love the pattern on your skirt. I'm really loving blue at the moment, I've never really been into blue until now!

  2. i love the pattern of your skirt! so summery and fun! and, you inspired me to do a post of my backyard, so thanks!! (i figured i should take pics while it still looks clean!)

  3. I can't tell if that kiddie ride is either a dolphin or a whale. I guess they can't really complain. I went on tons as a kid with rust all over it, and some boat rides with water that looked like toxic waste.

  4. I really love you did the lettering for the word Ocean. Also I love that you have enough clothes to do the inspiration Monday posts and I think this one is pretty bang on! I'm impressed. Hugs!

  5. you really nailed the elements of Rebecca's outfit. even though you're wearing a skirt it's still almost exactly the same.

    your nieces and nephews are super cute :)

  6. That little skirt is so cute
    I gotta style a plain white t more often!
    Cute look

  7. love your page :) You have the most adorable nieces and nephews too!

  8. gosh how amazing those blue inspirations are! light blue is such a gorgeous shade. and Teddi, once again you've done a great job with this inspirational look because your skirt indeed looks exactly like those pants from the original photo.
    oh and I hope you'll see the ocean already soon :)

  9. I love all the blues in this post, and those are great ankle boots!

  10. As usual, I loved your interpretation! Your boots are amazing! And the fashion pictures you selected are great - one of them really inspired me to find something similar! Your nieces and nephews always soooo sweet! And your art journal also always so inspiring. Where and when will I see the sea again... it made me think... you know I have a beach house and I seldom go there - and I love the sea... it's a shame. I want to go there now! Thanks for those words... made me think!

  11. Ted!! Great inspiration...i love the white t-shirt with print pants/skirt!! *_*

  12. Last time I was on the beach was in early april, I miss it! We should both go back soon :) Your inspiration is right on with this one! You got the colors perfect! I love those pants she's wearing, I totally want some!

  13. Oh Teddi, I can say that you're the Queen of finding Style Inspirations! You always get it right!

    Your adorable nieces & nephews have grown up so fast! They're very cuddly! ^◡^
