But I play one on TV...

Welcome to Dress Like a TV Character day on my blog.  I'm kind of kidding - but my outfit is entirely inspired by Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation.  I always try to plan my outfit the night before, even if I don't lay it out, I kind of mentally plan what I'm going to wear.  Last night my brain was fried and I was feeling uninspired, but we were watching Parks and Rec and my outfit was suddenly in my head.

 Denim shirt - Talbots, thrifted
Blazer - Merona, Target (old)
Scarf - Stella and Dot
Pants - Old Navy, thrifted
Shoes - Etienne Aigner, thrifted


We only just started watching the show this summer.  There was an Inspiration Monday featuring Aubrey Plaza, who plays April on the show and I had no idea who she was at the time, and then many of you said, oh she's on Parks and Recreation, that show is hilarious!  So I told the Pants Monkey that we were missing out on one of the funniest shows on television and we've slowly started making our way through it.  No spoilers please, we're only on season three, but I love the show.

Many of you requested pictures from the "White Trash" Christmas party.  I didn't take any, but I do have one that a friend took - it's not the best, but you can see a little of our outfits.  Many others at the party went much further than we did!

  2. So cute! I love TV characters. (As you know, I was Caroline from "2 Broke Girls" for Halloween.) More of us should draw inspiration from them. I'd like to dress like Gloria on "Modern Family"...
