I love today’s inspiration photo from Two Birds Inspiration Monday.  A striped shirt under a tweed or boucle jacket, distressed jeans, a scarf tied to her purse.

Unfortunately, our cool spell seems to be ending so I skipped the fun jacket and went for a boring cardigan. However, this inspiration photo made me think about wearing my gray pencil skirt instead of black one which I normally would have gravitated towards with this shirt.

So, I mean, my outfit is pretty typical office wear. A pencil skirt, a shirt, and a cardigan. Nothing groundbreaking. But I’d like to think the gray skirt gives it a little bit more visual interest than a plain black and white one! You know, shades of gray and all that.
