I used to be such a burning example, I used to be so original

I might as well rename my blog "outfits I've stolen from other bloggers". I stole this outfit from one of my absolute favourite bloggers, Steffy!


You might remember I was inspired by her outfit once before. When I saw this outfit I just thought, that is so cute, I must recreate that. Steffy always challenges me to create outfits from things I'd forgotten I had or things I never wear. I bought this cardigan last year and have only worn it once, but it was perfect for this outfit today! I have been wearing all of my cardigans backwards lately and I absolutely love it. They look so cute with a little peter pan collar peeking over the top.

This is the sister skirt of this one. I bought them over the summer but I don't think I've worn this one on my blog before. I am so into neutrals at the moment- this skirt goes with everything and was in the River Island sale. It was my work experience skirt- it's perfect with a blouse, blazer and nude shoes. I couldn't find my favourite ankle socks this morning so I had to roll down some knee high ones. Don't worry, I am wearing very thin tan tights. Today was cold! It was reminiscent of when I used to go outside and take photos in Duluth, seriously! This jacket is surprisingly warm though- I just really needed gloves!

So what's new? Not much! Last night I had a good library sesh and then came home, made really good veggie enchiladas and then had a super early night, and today I just did reading, wrote an article, worked on my dissertation and went dancing. Oh but I did finally submit my choices for my year abroad yesterday! My places could be San Francisco, Hampton Beach, Fullerton CA, San Pedro CA or Indianapolis. Exciting right? I've just booked the date of my visa appointment so it's all getting kinda scary and exciting now!

Extra points if you're a Brand New fan and you appreciate the title of my post. I'm going to see them for the fifth time next week and I can't wait.
I'm making brownies tomorrow for my reading and popular culture class so I might post the recipe up for you!
Have a lovely evening, guys!

  4. Whoa, love the backwards cardigan! You definitely made it work. That heart print is so cute <3
    Haha, and well, other bloggers can be a good source of inspiration! It makes you think creatively on how to re-make their looks. :)

  6. I don't think you are a copy cat. You just get inspiration from others and give it your own unique style! You are also a great inspiration! <3

  13. I love hearts and red with neutrals! The necklace is so cute with this too. If you come to California, I don't think you'll be disappointed. There are so many fun things to do here, all kinds of food...and the drive up the coast is insanely beautiful.

  14. Totally not a copy-cat move - both outfits are very fun, but different. Especially with the extra ooo la la your coat adds! :) Love it!

  15. The backwards cardigan looks great! I keep wanting to try that trend, but I feel like all of mine have visible tag going on and that's just not cool. This outfit is adorable, though. I love the fur coat.
