Hello all! Happy Sunday. I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend! It was a bit colder here again, as you can see in the pictures. It snowed again and was pretty miserable and windy. Sorry if some of the photos make it look like I am blowing away (because I was)! I decided to do a little bit of print mixing and I have also joined the Gossip Girl Style Linkup for January 26th. I decided to pair this striped skirt with leopard heels and a plaid bow in my hair (inspired by Blair). I love pattern mixing, especially when it is a bit more subtle like this. Sorry my hair is a disaster, it was just too windy and I couldn’t deal!

As part of this linkup I have answered two questions
1. Who is your outfit inspired by and why did you pick them?
I would say that my outfit is inspired by Blair and Ivy. While I love Blair and her style is something I will always envy, I always found it to be a bit hard to attain. Her style was very expensive, and while I do love my expensive pieces, I loved how Ivy was able to have that classy look by putting together simpler, more affordable pieces. 
2. Favorite Gossip Girl moment?
I would say my favorite moment is when Dorota meets her husband and eventually they have a child. She was one of my favorite characters in the shows, and seeing her do well was my favorite part!
