'Yet Herein Will I Imitate the Sun'


Saw this photo in an issue of Lucky Mag., and for some reason it really caught my attention. So I decided to copy the styling completely. I usually like to put my own twist on inspiration, but this styling had everything that I love: layers, neon, pink and black and white! Plus, it was cold out when I was flipping through the magazine, so I guess the bright yellow sweater and the mint skirt sang 'hallelujah' to me!

Check out my Pinterest boards (here) for more of what inspires me!
