Inspired By An Election

Today's lovely outfit was inspired by Michelle Obama. Here's my look...

Ruffled wrap top - Charlotte Russe
White tank - The Gap
Grey pencil skirt - Old Navy Outlet
Hype lace shoes - DSW
Grandmother pearl studs - passed down from my grandmother
Strand of pearls - wedding gift from my aunt
The lovely and patriotic ladies at Cute On The Cheap have set up a new blogger challenge, so of course I had to participate. My look is for corporate casual America, but I took a few polished looks from Michelle to inspire my outfit today. I love the wrap top and mine just has a hint of ruffle on the neckline. The simple strand of pearls and studs, with a burst of color.

Wow, am I glad I stuck with my guns and waited to vote on election day. I walked right up and didn't wait at all. The only bad thing was I didn't get one of those ultra cool "I voted" stickers the Fab Kimberly is sporting and has challenged us to show off. I guess my voting receipt will have to do. Oh and Sassy KT this pic is also for you... As soon as I voted, I went and got myself a free cup of joe courtesy of Starbuck's.

Tonight we are getting together for an election watch at my friend, Michelle's place. Maybe I'll have another outfit for the challenge. Happy election night everyone!
