Wild Thing!

(Image Above: Delightfully Tacky)

I’ve been coveting blogger Delightfully Tacky’s style for months so when I got the opportunity to do Style Inspirations this week, I knew I wanted to choose one of her looks. She’s an Alaska girl, and having moved to Pittsburgh from Alaska myself a few years ago, I was excited to stumble upon her blog. People think Alaska is lacking in the fashion department, and yeah you do see a lot of polar fleece and parkas, but there are enclaves of fashionistas; you just have to know where to look! But back to the outfit at hand – I loved the simple black and white color palette of this ensemble, and how it plays with texture and shape. Her hair is almost an accessory in itself, and it goes great with her DIY furry skirt, a la Where the Wild Things Are, and fringed moccasins. The woodsy setting completes the look. Check out her blog to read the full post on this unique skirt.

If you want a skirt that plays with texture, try the Curator Skirt or the Black Spinel Skirt and pair with a simple tee in a neutral color.


About Turi

When Turi isn’t blogging, you can find her nose behind a book. But reading isn’t her only pastime. She loves running (cue jogging stroller), taste-testing pizza and burgers, and working on the next great American novel. Her latest homage to all things literary? Her son is named after writer Dashiell Hammett. How apropos.
