A 180-degree change in pace plus wardrobe restrictions (see you in 6 weeks, Pants) necessitates a different approach to style in June!  While perusing Pinterest (thank you Internet for distracting me from my current state), I came across simple colour palettes and thought, EUREKA, that’s new inspiration for styling my existing wardrobe (I will be shopping my closet until I can manage a thrifting trip)!  Skirts and tees are an easy air-cast fashion formula, and Pinterest palettes inspired me to try a new combo…

Then while searching yellow, chocolate and black, I found more specific inspiration…

Here’s my version (it’s practically exactly the same, so you might think I actually AM Alexa Chung, it’s understandable).

Yellow tee new-with-tags $4, leopard print skirt $7 and Aerosoles shoe $2.50.

And for the not-over-exposed version (those kids gotta sharpen their photography skills :P)

I wasn’t sure whether this skirt would work for me since whenever I’m not on my feet, I have my cast elevated and my overarching post-op style goal is to NOT flash people…

BUT since it's a wrap skirt, it worked just fine to keep me covered!

AND this outfit was part of a momentous occasion!!!

I can drive!! Short distances but still! Things are looking up!

Without the colour palette inspiration, I would have never thought to combine these two pieces!  I’m looking forward to other palettes in June!!
