One of the reasons why I started blogging is because I love being inspired by all the wonderful bloggers that I follow.  I saw this skirt on Jenny from Crazy Style Love and I just knew I had to have it.  At first I wanted to create a monochromatic look, but then I thought it may be too much for the office…I don’t think my office is ready for something like that just yet.  I need to take baby steps, so I decided to break up the maroon with this houndstooth blouse.  What do you think?  Would you have worn head-to-toe maroon?
