Inspiration Monday

For this Inspiration Monday Two Birds gave us Reese Witherspoon, and she wears two noteworthy pieces: an animal-print flowing mini skirt and hot-pink sandals.
I don't think I ever had a short flowing skirt in my wardrobe. I always liked a  more lady-like style skirt.
Also, I already wrote here that I'm not a big fan of wild animal prints. I have two and both of them are tops, and their prints look more like small dots, circles, and irregular shapes, so from far it's hard to say that they areactually leopard prints:)
So I went upside down with this look. I wore a high-waisted pencil skirt and silk blouse. Normally I would never wear this combination with a denim jacket, but for this inspiration I tried to bring down my lady-like look.
Unfortunately, I am not fully pleased with this look. I am thinking that my denim jacket should be brighter and not so dusty-blue-washed ...or maybe the skirt is too dark for this jacket and I need a lighter one...then it would look better. It seems to me that another bright accessory (besides the shoes) is needed here.

You know what you like, and you can tell you definitely prefer the outfit without the jacket. I happen to love it both ways, and those shoes are amazing!
