Interning and trying to stand out

Looking for an outfit for my first day of interning at Aussie mag CLEO tomorrow. I got it just last week, so right now I'm busy switching from watching The Voice and flicking through my wardrobe. Pants? or Skirt? Fitted? or Loose? Brights? or Neutrals? - way too much to consider. But if my wardrobe was Polyvore these Galliano houndstooth leggings is what I would be wearing. And because one outfit option is never enough, I've created 3 different variations based on 3 bloggers who's style I adore. Can you guess who they are?

Outfit 1. Taking a note out of the 'More-is-More' lesson book, colour has become my best friend, and clashing patterns have come out to play - yes, it is inspired by the one and only Leandra from The Man Repeller - Master of mixing and matching.

Outfit 2. For a more simplistic approach, this sports look is complete with baseball cap and sweatshirt yet paired back with some feminine 50's accessories for that touch of elegance. A different take on mixing and matching and Sandra from 5inchandup shows us how to do this best.

 Outfit 3. A little rock and roll never hurt anyone but this Piranha bag just might. Originally putting this together I had Fashion Toast's Rumi Neely in mind, but I don't think she'd be cool enough to don the hilariously cool patent red Piranha. (Quote: "I'm a PI-RA-NHA. From the am-a-zon" $10 to the person who gets where that's from) Life is to short to live without quirky accessories so hop onto ASOS to get yourself your very own Piranha bag

Now, just need to get some houndstooth pants like these. Before tomorrow? ....(im)possible.
