Not so jaded: striped skinny jeans, embroidered jacket, and a fedora

Personal style inspiration can sometimes come from some rather unexpected sources…don’t you agree, dear readers??

Aside from being a fan of Aerosmith’s music, I’ve also been a long-time admirer of lead singer Steven Tyler‘s rather flamboyant – but undeniably cool! – rocker wardrobe!!  He dons hats and mixes patterns like nobody’s business…and I’m not at all embarrassed to say that today’s outfit is definitely influenced by Mr. Tyler’s signature look!!

The secret to taking sartorial inspiration and making it your own??  Don’t go too “literal!!”  Use favourite pieces (I grabbed my striped skinnies and new fedora!) and combine them to create an ensemble that hints at your muse…but doesn’t exactly copy her – or him!!  😉

And yippee!!  For my second go-around, I actually managed to capture three decent pics with my camera and tripod setup!!  The biggest thanks goes out for all your words of encouragement regarding my newly solo photography endeavour; I’ve said it before…but I really do have the very best followers in the entire blogosphere!!

      Thank you very much, dearest Elsie!! It's quite possible that taking my own pictures could end up being almost as much fun as pattern mixing is!! ;D
