Inspired by Teal, Coral & Gray

Happy Friday my loves! 
How was your week? Did you stay focused and complete your tasks?
I think I got pretty close, but that flu was pretty disabling.

Despite the sickness and being jobless, I've actually been quite busy with designing, planning, and keeping up with this blogosphere! 

Speaking of, notice anything different around here...?

I got inspired while working on a new blog design for Liz @ Chanel & Chocolate Cake.  I wasn't planning on it, but I decided to redesign my entire blog on a whim! I've grown a lot over the past year and wanted my simplistic style to come through. I think it's a lot more professional and clean. Still the same color scheme though, I couldn't part with it! Maybe next time :) (More buttons are in the works; email me if you need a new one!)

In other news, this week's Friday's Fancies theme was to create an outfit inspired by the blogosphere. I decided to use Liz's blog design colors as my inspiration... you like?

Outfit created with Polyvore




This combo is especially feminine yet comfortable. I love when warm and cool tones mesh with a gray neutral!  What have you been inspired by this week?


P.S. Can you image what life would be like without our precious inspiration? Our endless free knowledge throughout the online universe? I couldn't... so I signed the petition saying "NO" to SOPA and PIPA. I strongly encourage you to do the same!

P.P.S. I've been featured on FIVE different blogs this week! Check 'em out:
