Inspiration Monday

So I am back from my little vacay and I apologize for any weirdness my blog underwent while I was gone.
I was posting from my iphone and had almost no service.  My post on Monday was up as Friday most of the week and my Tues. post came and went randomly until it reappeared as a post on Thursday.  Not blogging from my iphone again!!

I am linking up with Two Birds again this Monday, soooo
Let's get to our inspiration picture for this week:
Thankfully the inspiration is Katie Holmes and not Suri 
 who may or may not be wearing a nightgown.

I didn't have a chambray anything but a shirt and thought we would all be embarrassed if I just belted that and wore it as my inspiration.
I went with just a casual little dress like Katie.
  The stripes might be considered chambray in color,
 but I think they are really gray.
  I added a pop of color with the shoes and
 did brown accessories like Katie.
I didn't have a small child to use as an accessory
 so I will just have to go it alone in my pictures!
Don't forget to enter my monogram key chain giveaway if you haven't already.

Hope this Monday starts you off to a fantastic week!

Can't go wrong with a classic striped dress. And I love that you added the bright shoes for color. It really dressed up the classic pieces!

I love that simple dress! It's very cute and looks great with the belt! I chose a simple dress today too, not a chambray one either.

I'm outraged that you didn't borrow a child for this photo! :-D

I like your interpretation! Perfect pink flats! You've even got your hair in ponytail.
Great job Brett! Cute as always!

Peggy said...

tee shirt dresses are so comfy! Love the pink!

Renae said...

You did a pretty great copy of Katie, except yours is knit and gray and shoes are the wrong color, but who is noticing right? ok.

I just going to go join your cute site anyway. hahaha.

Come on over to my little humble edge of the blogosphere and see if you'd like to hop on too?

:D

The pink shoes are awesome, and I don't think you needed to wear your chambray mini shirt dress because this looks great. and you're right... thank goodness the inspiration wasn't Suri... we'd all be modeling scarves and pajamas.

Great casual look. I'm not sure if children make good accessories. Hope you enjoyed the vacay!

Bravoe Runway said...

This is a great dress Brett, and looking at your post, I just realized that there is nothing in my closet that looks like this! I need to add something similar! My Mom called after reading your comment and said she agreed with you! The outfit was quite Mary Tyler Moore looking :)

Tiffany said...

Haha! You can borrow one of mine. ;
) I love that casual little dress!

Dawn said...
