Like Mary-Kate and Ashley

It's funny how the "blog world" inspires me!  I've recently seen a couple different posts from blogs I follow covering the Olsen twins (click here to read about J's Everyday Fashion Olsen style or click here to see how B.Jones Style plays with volume). 
I remembered I have these outfit photos in which I remind myself of one of the twins:
(old) Gap skirt - FC ($6.50)
American Eagle cami - Mom from long ago
Free People vest - FC ($12)
Sunglasses - F21 ($5)
Handmade wrap bracelet by Drew O'Reilly via FC ($18)

Maybe it's because I so often see them in maxi skirts and dresses:

Ashley via The Budget Babe
Mary-Kate via fashionprose.wordpress.com
(personal favorite)
Or maybe it's because of the over-sized sunglasses they are always rocking:

Whatever the reason, I was instantly reminded of the twins when I saw these pictures my sister took (thanks Chan!).  Now many people cite the Olsens as serious style inspiration while on the total opposite end of the spectrum, many despise the way they dress.  I, myself, can find inspiration...I just tweak it to work for me:  in the above photos I defined my waist with a belt so as not to be swallowed up by the long length and layers!

How do you feel about the Olsen twins' style?  Do you love it or hate it?

...And, oh yeah, remember this?

I absolutely love their styles. I really like your grey maxi skirt with the plaid. It's so cute without looking like you really had to try!

I love the Olsen twins. They really have the boho chic look down...did you see them on Ellen when she gave them the giant purses and glasses? Too funny!

I think the olsens have just as many style hits as they have misses - as we all do. but this look is a hit for sure!

Chic on the Cheap
