Full disclosure: I am working from my couch today.  I had an amazing weekend full of a tour at Half Acre brewery, running my fastest 5K race time ever, and an awesome Oscar’s party hosted by the Chicago Blogger Network (full post on Wednesday). I need a day to recover.  But, I already had this outfit planned for Inspiration Monday.  Plus, my hair is straightened so I wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to take some pics.

Today’s Inspiration Monday involved a full skirt and a jacket as worn by one of the Olsen sisters.

You may notice that any time an inspiration photo features a full skirt I wear this purple pleated one.  That’s because it’s the only full skirt I own.  I definitely gravitate towards the pencil skirt silhouette but ever so often it’s nice to break out of the box.
