Inspiration Monday

Remember last week when I said I was linking up with
Two Birds Inspiration Monday to spice up my summer styling slump??
Well...
They threw the gauntlet down this Monday.(for this old woman anyway)
Here we have Ashlee Simpson rocking her outfit at some fabulous party for young people!
How was I ever gonna get close to interpreting this look you ask??
I decided to make my outfit much more casual
 since I would never be invited to
 some fabulous young person Hollywood party.
These shorts were the closest thing I had to orange shorts
 and even though linen is about as far away from leather
 as one can get, 
it works for the casual vibe I was going for.
I opted for the black wedges instead of booties since I was going casual
 and 
I chose a bright orange necklace to pay homage
 to the bright orange shorts that Ashlee was wearing.

So would you wear Ashlee's look
 or
 a more casual look like mine?

You look great. Those shoes showcase your fabulous gams.

Great job recreating the look. I like yours much better because it's real world. Ashlee's look is super cute, but I have no place to wear leather shorts, lol! Heather

Love the color palette!

Deborah said...

Super cute. I really love those wedges!

I've tried tucking part of my shirt in and my hubs losses his mind every time. I don't know why, but he hates that!

Of course, he wears Dockers like it's his job. Heh!

Cara said...

Brett, you are smoking hot in this look! Love the shorts you picked, the necklace and those great shoes. You could totally be at a Hollywood party :D

Tinfoil Tiaras said...

Your take on this look is so funky- those shorts are fab (you really can't go wrong with floral bottoms in my opinion!) and the wedges just amp it up!

Tiffany said...

Oh, wow, you look amazing!! I love your look and would wear it any day! =)

Lynne DeVenny said...

I'ma steal this look for work. Except I have to substitute a skirt for the shorts :) You look fabulous, and have been rocking the sexy back lately!

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

Well, I have some red shorts in my wardrobe, but no way do I sport them as well as Ashley or you do! I like that you took it more casual... I mean, who runs around in those shiny Ashley shorts anyway? Guess I could if I wanted the Paparazzi to chase me down. LOL

Shea Sayers said...

I love your look even more than Ashlee's--I think it's the printed shorts! I remember seeing those at Loft and now I wish I would have picked them up, the print is so pretty!
