Brown Karen Walker Super Duper Strength sunglasses, Red HM top, Silver accessories: HM necklace, Pyramid stud bracelet via T.J.Maxx, Vintage watch, leather tie bracelet c/o Maya Brenner, Turquoise ring c/o Mimi Boutique, Brown thrifted Bebe skirt via Crossroads Trading, Black clutch c/o Lancaster Paris, Brown Zara heels.

I saw this high-waisted skirt while thrifting and reminded me so much of Missoni with the cool chevron pattern.  I love finding unique and interesting pieces whenever out at vintage or thrift stores. Decided to accessorize with all silver and a pop of color with this gorgeous turquoise ring from Mimi Boutique.

I'm leaning more towards pencil skirts now that I'm working in a corporate office.  It's always a new feeling to dress for both work and on days I'm off -- this is kind of a hybrid outfit I guess ;P.  Just getting used to all different lengths and not wearing sheer etc. in that environment -- one day though hope to mix work and play in dressing up everyday!  (:crossing fingers: when I work at a fashion magazine in NYC?) ;).
How're you lovelies doing?? Apologies for hiatus, last weekend was my bday weekend!  Can't believe I'm 22 now, time seriously flies.  September also marks the 2nd year of Inspirafashion's bday!  I'm just really happy to say that I've had the most rewarding and amazing experience running this blog and having this journey with you Lovelies! And happy to say, I've met so many inspiring people along the way these past 2 years, including now really great friends in the blogosphere and in-person.  Big thank you and bear-hugs out to you all xoxo.
Have a lovely Monday and start of the week! Keep inspiring Beautifuls!

I thought Missoni when I saw this skirt too. I love it! And that burgundy shirt is a perfect way to dress it down a notch.
