This morning I was pounding out mileage on my bike (on my trainer) with the iPod on shuffle, when I came up with this outfit. I don’t know if it was Queen, the Brothers Johnson or Blondie that inspired me but this is what popped into my brain when I was sweating my butt off in the garage at 5am.
It’s all neutrals – black skirt, cream t-shirt, denim jacket – with the shot of turquoise in my ballet flats. I was going to wear a plain t-shirt but needed some texture since, to the eye, every other component of this look is flat. The multi-textured appliqués on this t-shirt provide some interest.
Come to think of it, with all these ruffles maybe it was Prince who inspired me this morning.
