Nerdvember Day 18: Ratatouille

Inspiration: I was looking for something to wear next when I spotted the skirt and thought, “Well, I don’t think there’s anything I can do for November with a Paris print skirt…wait…WAIT!!!!” Components: You can’t see it but I have a pale pink tank top underneath the gray cardigan from Mod Cloth, so pink and gray for Remy. And of course, the now-famous Paris skirt from Stella Boutique in Bangkok. #Nerdvember Day 18: A rat in Paris. #Ratatouille #settostunning #disneybound Paris print skirt from my friend’s shop, @birdstella Stella, in Bangkok.
