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 girlnextdoorfashion@googlemail.com. 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!!
