I found that I couldn't reply to a comment on my own blog.  My reply button just disappeared.  I tried all of the browsers I have on the computer--same story (I'll check the mobile version to see if that works).

Inspiration Monday

Our inspiration from Two Birds today is Rachel Bilson. Love her in the comedy-drama television series "Hart of Dixie" - it's a fish-out-of-water story of a big-city doctor trapped in a small town with an unfamiliar culture.

With this outfit, so far from perfect, Rachel is distorting all of her bodily proportions - increasing her hips and shortening her legs. Sorry...Who wants short legs- even if you are a big TV star?
I like her things separately (especially vest and boots), but not together. So my version of a winter outfit.

I wore
Cords: Gap
Sweater: Zara
Hoodie: American Eagle
Boots: Ralph Lauren
Beanie: H&M
Vest: Xersion (JCPenney)

Inspiration Monday

This week over at Two Birds our inspiration is...who knows? call her Jane Doe.
Love this low key casual and comfy winter look.
I think every women has worn something similar - a huge men's sweater that belonged to her husband, brother or father. Unfortunately, my hubby wears t-shirts all year long and hates long sleeves!  So I put on my own cable knit sweater , but it's not over-sized.

Delayed development

When I was young I wanted to be classically elegant, but right now, when I'm twice as old, I'm happy going with a grungy look.

It's Christmas, pretty baby!

Got some shopping done. Ate chestnuts and cinnamon apple donuts, drank hot apple cider.

sloppy screams laziness

Again with the sweat pants?
What? I'm comfortable.
You know the message you're sending out to the world with these sweat pants? You're telling the world: "I give up. I can't compete in normal society. I'm miserable, so I might as well be comfortable"

Two minutes walk to the neighbor across the street for the Christmas tree.

Inspiration Monday

Today's inspiration over at Two Birds is Olivia Palermo, who wore sleek leather pants with a chunky sweater, dark sunglasses, and an over sized croc print bag. She livened up her mainly dark outfit with some brightly decorated ankle strap heels.
So I tried to do the same - a dark outfit with bright heels.
My shoes proved to be too bright for my taste , more like a crow's feet, but anyway I decided to keep them on. Maybe if the pants were shorter, this look would be better.
