the life and thoughts of a shoe addict

Finally I managed to take part in the Inspiration Monday challenge at Two Birds again! This week’s inspiration is the lovely Maggie Gyllenhaal, dressed in a maxi dress combined with a black blazer and brown bag:

Well, I’ve got a single maxi dress, and that’s pink and summery….so, looking at the weather, which has turned from a beautiful late summer to cold and dreary autumn in the last few days, I decided to let the colour palette of her outfit inspire me. The dress I immediately thought of after seeing this picture is a recent purchase from H&M, which I combined with black tights and booties (yes, it was that cold today! I can’t believe I was wearing sandals just a few days ago….)  and a black cardigan. I added the bag for a pop of colour. So here it is, my take on Maggie’s outfit:

Inspiration MondayOutfit: Shoes by G&I, dress by H&M, cardigan by Chille AnaP, belt by Hallhuber, bag by Emma Stone.

Take a look at the other participants’ outfits here.
