outfit post: blue plaid shirt, mustard green cardigan, black pencil skirt

Inspiration - Dainty & Decadent

Yay for fun inspiration photos! I feel like the fashion/outfit/clothing blogs I read fall into one of two categories. The first type are aspirational and remind me of fashion magazines with super expensive clothes and artistic modeling photoshoots. These blogs are fun to dream about and inspire the artistic side of fashion.

And the second type are equally fun but are the ones that actually really help me get dressed in the morning. They have cute outfits I could actually make from clothes I own and I wouldn't look like a high-fashion off the runway weirdo if I wore them in my everyday life. Maria at Dainty & Decadent is one of my absolute favorite outfit bloggers. (She's currently blogging adorable maternity wear!) I get so much inspiration from reading her blog. I like her fun use of color & print and her attention to clothing cut & fit. And just her really great ability to put together good outfits.

Her blog is where today's inspiration came from. I love plaid as a base pattern for a fun colored cardigan. Wouldn't have thought of this on my own. Too cute.



  1. Looks great! I love the green and blue combo!

  2. Oh my goodness, I feel so honored! You are incredibly kind and I can't thank you enough for the kind words :-) I love the neutral accents that you added!

  3. I love this combo. I could see myself wearing this with a dark wash of jeans for casual denim day at work!

  4. Love this. Perfect. Don't forget about my link up tomorrow. HOpe you can join me.



  5. This is such a cute outfit!!!

    I think you should do a closet inventory post or a post about the essentials that should be in the closet.

    Thanks for posting!!!

  6. Great post! I see blogs in the same two categories. Your blog is my go-to, and has officially taught me to dress myself. Yay for finally dressing like a thirty something with a real job, and not like a wannabe college kid!

    And thanks for turning me on to D & D- I was just looking for some outfit blogging with maternity wear!

  7. I love this outfit pairing on you and I also love D&D! She is so cute!
