it’s wednesday and i’m linking up with lindsey from the pleated poppy for some fashion inspiration!

this is the same gray skirt and gray tights from last week.  but this week i mixed it up differently–and with a lot of color! the inspiration for this outfit definitely came from the shoes. they are poetic license and found at a local boutique called ambiance. it was love at first sight. then a lot of debating if i could justify them and finally acceptance. they were meant to be mine.

aren’t they sweet?

on my wrist, our devoted bracelet. skirt, tights, cardigan all from target. gray tee from kohls.

that adorable necklace? allora handmade of course! psst! there is an allora handmade giveaway over here!!

david is super into what i wore wednesdays. he wants to be in all the pictures with me!

i get a lot of questions about what i wore wednesday. here are some answers…

how do you shoot the pictures? i use a tripod and the timer on my camera. my family likes to mock me while i shoot pics, so i try to do it when no one is around {except david :)}

how long does it take you to get ready in the morning? getting ready doesn’t take all that long–i pick out an outfit and blowdry my hair. blowdrying takes a lot longer than picking out my outfit.

how do you build an outfit? i usually have one piece that i want to wear {like a dress, top or shoes} and i build the outfit from there. most of the pieces i wear are pretty basic with a pop of color or interest here or there.

how do you know what pieces to splurge on and what pieces to buy for less?  i love love love a good deal. i find awesome stuff at target, tj maxx and old navy. i also love thrifting–you can find some super pieces that are unique and affordable. i’ll splurge on something here or there if it is really unique and fun or if it fits well and i’ll wear it often.

have any other what i wore wednesday questions for me? leave them in the comments and i’ll try to answer them!
