  4. WHAT!??! That skirt is from Target kid's section? How awesome is that? I have to go to Target today. I'm loving this Monday's inspiration by the way!

  5. I love this idea, but I'm going to try to participate and link up tomorrow instead of today. I didn't think wearing a short poofy-ish skirt would be a good idea in 20-30 mph wind or whatever it's supposed to be today.

    I wasn't sure what to do about the graphic tee portion of this outfit, but I loved what you did with the striped top! I may have to copy the idea tomorrow.

  7. Love how you interpreted this outfit! The stripes are a fun match with the polka dots. And I just love that skirt in general.

    I am linking up tonight, and I kind of went with a take the basic elements of the outfit (skirt paired with a tee and cardigan) and changed up colors a bit.

  8. Is it ok if we link up with a Polyvore set we've published to our blog? I forgot to do my inspired outfit when I got dressed this morning, but I have some free time at work to create a set.

    Let me know!

  16. I just want to say how much I enjoyed this challenge. I have now posted up my link. I think this challenge pushed me a little more creatively, as it's not an outfit combo I would usually wear, so I really loved being out of my comfort zone. Thanks so much, I hope I will have time to participate regularly! Looking forward to next weeks inspiration!
