Cats and birds may not be known for getting along, but they make the best of friends in this outfit! When Austin-based jewelry company Vinca USA reached out to me about wanting to give me some of their fantastic cat jewelry, I was just tickled at the thought of styling it with my favorite bird skirt. I'm always looking for clever pairings in my outfits (remember this post?). Maybe not what you'd expect to hear from a fashion blogger about putting together her looks, but what can I say, I'm not your average bird!

I've been excited to wear ModCloth's Chirps and Salsa skirt with booties since I got it back in May (previously worn here). Since both the skirt and my jewelry go hard on the whimsy, I decided to tone down the rest of the outfit with taupe booties and a classic chambray shirt. I like to think that if I were a teacher, this would be my Open House outfit. "Hi, I'm a responsible adult you can trust with your children, but I'm also a quirky-cool cat lady outside of the classroom." Except that I'm not a teacher, and in fact work from home, so I guess I'm just sending that message to strangers in coffee shops these days.

Now I'm feeling jealous of my teacher friends who get to come up with Open House outfits. What message would you send?
