Shiny T Tuesday dress up theme this week is 

Here are the things that inspire me in 
what I buy:

* I like it.
* colour
* pattern
* It's not fashionable
* It's unusual/interesting somehow
*It's cheap!
* I find it when I'm treasure hunting
*It reminds me of something nice (like my Gran, or my mum, or a picnic, or a fun time).
* It's old , or maybe not!
* I haven't already got one!

And here is what inspires me on any given day, in choosing what I'll wear:

* It's clean, dry and presents itself to me.

* The weather.

* It fits!

* My mood.

* Comfort.
And I don't have time to spend hours getting dressed these days. That time of the day is C.R.A.Z.Y. Realz.

* Pattern, colour, I like, it reminds me of someone/something etc etc (as above)..

Happy Days!

What inspires your dressing?

I love that you wear a lot of pattern. I think we Kiwis are a bit afraid of it. I tend to wear block colours but have decided come Spring/Summer I will wear more colour and pattern! xo

I hear you ... I totally dress for comfort and the weather ... they are the absolute top criteria. If the outfit is cute too ... Then that's a bonus :0)

What I am doing. If I'm off to yoga that day I wear a skirt with my yoga gear underneath, if I'm not so active it's pants, but I do tend towards black, a lot of the time.

it's good to be inspired by clothing! I am like you, the weather can dictate a lot, I also like to have a theme, dressing up is good!, your boots are cool as is your frock! x x

That pattern on that dress is great.
I also like wearing pattern and colorful clothes.


Mum said...

Comfort, convenience and not many items to wear. e.g. I'm wearing a Charity Shop long floaty dress today - that's all.
Love from Mum

Love that frock, Linda, and the entire post made me smile!
Yep, cheap is good. Colour and pattern attract me. I dress for the weather. Other than that, it's hard to know why I wear what I wear on most days. Random inspiration from the wardrobe gods, perhaps? xxxx
