Get excited!  You’re going to be treated to some indoor shots this week!  Yes, I took all my outfit photos on one day and that day happened to be cold and rainy.  On the plus side, I think we’ve figured out some new indoor photo spots.

In addition to having to negotiate where to take today’s pictures, I also had to think long and hard about what to actually wear.  See, this is today’s Inspiration Monday photo:

Original Inspiration: Drew Barrymore

Well, it certainly is interesting.  And I do have both a plaid flannel shirt (obviously) and several maxi dresses.  But I just couldn’t figure out how to make my maxi dresses work appropriate.  Or maybe I wasn’t in the mood to try very hard.  So I went with the easy option: a pencil skirt.  However, I did incorporate some pattern mixing with the plaid flannel shirt and the pinstripes on the skirt.

Would you wear a maxi dress to work?  I’ve done it in the past but that was during the summer when our dress code is a little bit more relaxed.
