The primary components of this Reverse Inspiration are floral top, pink/purple cardigan, and black A-line skirt.
My version has bright orange flats and a lion charm necklace (which I can kind of understand that she skipped over in dressing for her more conservative workplace). (Yep, a photo that predates my new camera.)

This is another cardigan with tight sleeves, perfect for wearing with a sleeveless top but of somewhat limited applicability as the weather cools down.
The Julia butterfly loves orange and black, but wonders why how I could have missed the obvious pairing with green and yellow. Maybe next time.
In other news...I missed the 4 month mark on the Work the Wardrobe Challenge by about a week, so it's time for another update of my progress.
The Challenge is 33% of the way done. How am I doing with wearing all my items?
Here are my stats by narrower categories:
|By broader categories:|
I'm actually feeling pretty good about this. I am comfortably over 33% for all the broad categories (even tops, always a concern due to the sheer overwhelming number of them I have). For the narrower categories, the places where I'm under 33% (sweaters, vests, leggings) are not surprising since they are mostly fall/winter garments and it's been spring/summer so far. Dresses, scarves, and jackets--the other 3 lowest categories--also skew fall/winter for me, but there I'm still over the 33% mark. Of course things will get trickier soon, as the warm/"bare leg" season ends and we settle in for a long period of cool-to-nose-freezing weather to take me through the end of the Challenge in April.
But in even more important news...Tomorrow is the Lagomorphapalooza at the state fair! (They don't call it that, but they should.) Prepare yourself for the return of the Daily Rabbit on FB!
