Nothing of me is original

A few days ago I was in the library "doing homework", when I stumbled upon my Inspiration folder. I'm not sure if any of you keep these, but recently I've been trying to save any outfit that inspire me for future inspiration/ Anyway, as I was going through my pictures (making notes, I'm such a nerd), I found an outfit picture of Tieka's from a few months ago. I remember seeing it and thinking, hey, I have a cardigan like that, and I remember bringing it back from home over Christmas, but had so far not been inspired by it. After seeing Tieka's outfit again, I thought, wait a sec, I could do that. So I am taking no credit for this outfit, it was all Tieka.

Tieka, of Selective Potential, and today's outfit inspiration.

I think after today I really need to go back to taking outfit photos inside. It was so cold when I took these that I could barely move my fingers!! When I got inside I almost cried my fingers were so sore! The good news is that I tracked my new lens today and it's in St. Paul which means it should be here tomorrow!!

If you follow my ramblings on tumblr you will know that I am very happy that it is finally March. This is my birthday month after all, and the month I get to finally see New York!! And it being March also means I survived the winter in Duluth- yay!!

striped top- primark
pleated skirt- primark
cardigan- primark
(wow, I'm wearing a lot of primark today!!)
boots- xavi
scarf- new look

On and final note, myself and Ashley are thinking of organizing a blogger meet up. If you're in the Minnesota/Wisconsin/Iowa area (or would travel up here!!) and would be interested in getting involved, please please leave me a comment, or email me at Also, if you know of any bloggers in that area, we'd love to hear from you so we can contact them too!!

I'm spending my afternoon finishing up homework as I have dinner plans with my boyfriend tonight and sushi lunch with my friend Michelle definitely took longer than we both thought!!

Have a great Wednesday!!
