Open to Interpretation


I love seeing how we three girls pull different things from the inspiration when there's a lot going on but I kind of wanted to see what we would do with something really simple. Erica commented that this is the closest our outfits have been to one another and to the original.

I think I could do an entire 30 for 30 based around this outfit. I actually wore 3 or 4 versions before I finally got around to photographing one and I thought of 4 or 5 more off the top of my head I could do in case I didn't get home in time to pull out the camera. It would be a rather dull 30 for 30 but I would comfortable. T-shirt + skirt = my comfort zone. I'm kind of boring. But you knew that.

Someone told me I look like Robin Hood. I'm down with that.

We are super excited for the next round of Open to Interpretation because we will be welcoming a special guest interpreter! She picked the inspiration and will be joining us in our interpreting and it will be lovely.

(and cross your fingers the dang buttons work because I'm only 1 for 3 since the beginning of this series and I'm about to lose my mind over the stupid HTML) (I blame Blogger)

(Edit: I give up. The buttons work in Google Reader but not on my actual blog. WHY!?! Blogger hates me. Just use the links above)

(Edit 2: Holy crap, commenter Loren just reached her magic mind through my computer and told me what was wrong with the button. It was an easy fix. Next child will be named after her)

  1. I'm pretty sure that someone said a PRETTY robin hood or in other words, maid mariam. (or is it marian? I never know.)

    Winged eyeliner again? Looks killer. Keep working it.

  2. I had a robin hood day recently too! It wasn't until I got to work that I realized all I needed was a hat with a feather and I could be off stealing from the rich and giving it to the poor.

    I am looking forward to the guest interpreter next round. It's always fun to see how people can spin an outfit.

  3. Very cute Kayla! Great inspiration and I agree... that skirt makes me think of Robin Hood, but thats okay...I like Robin Hood and now I want to watch it! =)

  4. I LOVE that skirt. What a rich color! You've styled it in such a casual way, but I bet it would dress up beautifully too.

  5. This look is great. The muted colors almost come off as 'sultry'. (I mean this in the best way possible.)
    Also because I can leave no internet problem unsolved, the image map you are using for your is named 'MyMap' but blogger is using an image map for your blog navigation with the same name. If you change the name of the image map (and the reference in your picture) it'll probably fix your link problem.

  6. I'm docking 5 points because your skirt isn't transparent like the model's.

  7. This is such a great look! I'm feeling inspired.. I may have to take a look in my own closet to see what I can come up with..

  8. stunning look! I know that this might sound weird but the color of the skirt looks exactly like the color of your eyes in the 2nd photo! LOVE it!

  9. robin hood is always a compliment :)

  10. i love the green. ive been loving green lately. which is weird because i used to hate it. I love how you added the sweater and button down!

  11. I love seeing how y'all all create such different outfits based on an inspiration picture. Can't wait to see who's guest posting next time! :)

  12. I love all of your takes! I tend to be a little too literal sometimes, so be prepared for a plagiaristic ensemble from me next week! Hahaha. Lacking in the creativity department over here... Also, now following!


Thanks for your comment!

Any trolls will be dragged into the trees and beaten soundly.
