As I was uploading and reviewing the photos from today’s post, I couldn’t help but think of the Lite Brite toy by Hasbro from the 80’s. Does anybody else remember this toy? Or am I completely dating myself? Ok, so granted, I never actually had one — but I do vividly remember the commercials, in particular around the holidays, of little kids creating crazy designs on a dark board with neon bright pegs. And I always thought it was the coolest thing…. Anyway, today’s photos definitely brought it back to me – bright colors against a dark back drop – hence the inspired title!
Anyway, my outfit inspiration from today actually came from a J. Crew look that I saw online last week. (Latest Obsession: Printed Pencil Skirt) But the crazy thing is… even though it was my full intention to recreate the J. Crew look, apparently I was actually re-channeling a previous look of my own! Remember the Blazer and Skinny Jeans Restyled post? Yep – it is the ABSOLUTE identical look. The only thing that’s different? Skirt instead of Jeans, Long Sleeve Tee instead of Tank and add in the Gray Tights. CRAZY. I mean who unintentionally does that? Hilarious! Apparently I really like this color combo!
What I’m Wearing: Kenya L. Designs Blazer – purchase here, J. Crew Top, J. Crew Wool Pencil Skirt, Gray Sweater Tights, BCBG Girls Mary Jane’s, Michael Kors Purse and Watch, Versona Accessories
What’s been your latest style inspiration? I’d love to hear from you!
