Inspired by a Blogger

When I saw Inge's blogger post back in February, I planned to do a version. Here it is. What do you think? My sunglasses are not white but a light yellow-green. The fuzzy ball is not really part of the cap but a bag addition. I got this one to amuse DGS when he was younger. I also felt the outfit would look better with a belt. My boots are whiter in R/L. I'd appreciate your thoughts and suggestions.

Would you wear a plaid shirt backwards?

I saw this and wondered...is it a fresh look or just crazy?

My Rose Quartz (Blush) and Serenity Blue Capsule for Skylurker

I need to update this capsule but maybe this will be helpful. These colors feel fresh worn together. I've recently added a silky blush pink blouse and pale blue ankle pants.

My Blush and Navy Capsule for Skylurker

It looks like this is only part of it. I tried to fill in some missing pieces.

ROG picked most of this outfit.

ROG picked most of this outfit. The difference was a similar shaped silk tee in cobalt that is still drying. I thought that it incorporates several trends...asymmetrical top, cropped bottoms, tie dye, maximalism, a bit of mustard, trendy footwear (sneakers), and a bit of sporty lux. I added the stone necklace to fill in a too wide neckline. Does this work? Suggestions?
ROG suggested a navy tote. I am thinking of using a mustard crossbody/shoulder bag.

Fun Inspiration From The Guys

Last weekend's magazine sections of the newspaper had some inspirational photos of men's fashion.
First up, lots of layering inspiration in 1-11, including neutral mixes and pattern mixing.
12 looked especially springy, as did the light colors of 14-15.
13: a new way to wear a turtleneck or scarf?
15 struck me with it's whiteout simplicity and oversized pocket cargo pants.
16: A DIY project for an old lab coat. This could be part of an arty look.
17: Will wearing an extra long belt make your waist look smaller?
Do you have a favorite?

More ROG Fun

In my ROG inspiration thread, Bonnie comented that she gets crazy outfits when using ROG.  I get them too but they can still inspire an outfit.

1-2:  What ROG suggested, including my house slippers, gold metallic jeans, striped tee and plaid shirt.  I liked the tee and plaid shirt together.

3.  How I used but changed the outfit for a cold snowy day.  The top section stayed.  I wore dark denim Paige jeans instead of the gold and tall black boots instead of slippers.

4:  This outfit was modified for winter.  a yellow wool tee was subbed for ROG's idea of a citron linen tank; olive jeans for cropped cotton cargo pants, and grey long wool cardi for a shorter one.  The quilted black boots are the same.

5:  Outfit showing the yellow tee thrifted for the wool.  It is going away.

6-7: ROG suggestion of black and white stripe cardigan with leopard top and burgundy jeans.  Actually this is not as bad as I thought it would be.  I forgot what shoe and bag were suggested but think it was a nude summer shoe and a black and white satchel.

8-10:  ROG suggestion of leopard tube skirt with sequined top and peach linen cardigan.  Tan woven leather bag and red patent shoe. Again I got inspiration from the red with leopard or peach with leopard.

What do you think?  Anything worth trying here?

Inspiration from ROG

Most of the outfits that ROG comes up with for me include hot weather pieces, my own fault because I need to create more finds from my winter closet. I decided to use some ROG created outfits and switch warm weather items for something similar for cold weather.
1-3: the sweater and aqua bag were in ROG's plan, but it used my rayon blush blazer which I switched out for a JCrew blush stadium coat, blue denim Bermuda shorts became blue denim jeans, and pewter ballet flats were switched for pewter wedge booties.
4: a warmer long-sleeved winter white EF turtle instead of a silk tank. The rest is ROG's plan.
5: I wore a long sleeved tee under a pale grey open weave pullover instead of a bone tan; and olive skinnies were subbed for olive cropped cargo pants. The rest is ROG.
Do these outfits look ok? It is bitterly cold right now with some snow, so being warm enough is a priority.

The tie scarf: an attempt

Last summer I came across a photo of this man wearing his tie differently and wanted to try it but it was way to hot. This week I looked through the very few ties I had available and matched one up with a striped shirt and with plaid jeans.
It was harder than I thought it would be to copy the look so that the widest part of the tie would show. I paired all this with a pullover navy sweater but a jacket might be better. Success or fail? I welcome your thoughts and suggestions.

ROG's Wild Side

Today I decided to ask ROG (Random Outfit Generator) to create an outfit. It has a sense of humor as shown in Angie's April Fools outfit, but I was impressed with its restraint in not picking my cheetah bag. These shorts do require a belt, so I could not resist another shot of leopard. Adding Finds is difficult from my phone so I'll add them later. I just had to show you what ROG hath wrought.
What do you think? Do I dare wear this out?
