Inspiration Monday

Here in Charlotte the public schools started today.
Oh how I missed the squeaking sounds of the bus brakes so early in the morning.
It was kind of weird not having to get anyone up and off to school, but I'm sure I will be over that by tomorrow!

Today is Inspiration Monday over on Two Birds, so let's take a look at who we are working with today.

It is Jessica Alba once again. 
 That girl does have style!
I think I have styled this look just right,
 except for the paparazzi guy.
  Can you even imagine being hounded by them everywhere you go?
  It must be exhausting!
I wish I had a pair of those darling neon wedges in my closet,
 but alas, I don't.  
I went with my blue and white striped ones instead.
I will say that I am not one for cropped pants or rolled jeans,
 but somehow with the wedges I think this look works.  
 This is a great transition look from summer to fall. 
 A bit later in September add a pair of booties instead of the wedges 
and 
you will be rocking the cool weather.

What is your opinion of a cropped pant or rolled pant leg?

What a great jacket and love the sleeves peeking out from your top. I like cropped and rolled pants. They look cute with heels and wedges. Heather

Brett I like your wedges better than Jessica's :) And I am a huge rolled jeans fan.....I wore them today (will be in tomorrow's post)! The good thing with rolled jeans (besides th fact that they do look cool) is that you can wear them with any type of shoes: flats, heels, wedges, ankle boots....

You look suited up and ready for a day out running errands. The wedges are super cute and I love the cuffed jeans with them. Weekend casual or polished work week? It could go either way. Great take on the inspiration!

This is exactly spot on Brett! I love the look and I like the cuffed/rolled up jeans!

I'm a big fan of rolled jeans - especially with wedges. My sister has those same shoes and I love em! But couldn't find them in my size. You look better than mrs. Alba I must say :)

Peggy said...

Oh wow, Brett! This is one of your best! You look way better than the other photo. Great look on you. ;)

Jessi said...

You totally hit it right on! This is perfect. I actually love the rolled up pant leg look but I'm not too big on cropped pants. Weird I know.

Brett, you can rock any inspiration look you choose!

Love this look! You look fabulous. I would be so annoyed if someone was constantly taking my pictures. I guess they get used to it.

Brett- you are so cute to share all of your fashion choices with us - I especially like your awkward and awesome posts!

This copy of Alba is your best "look" of all the posts I read today. I started with your latest post and read all the way back to this one.

Please take note of the fit, proportion and choice of accessories.

You have shown us all - with this post - that we should find a famous body type (that closely matches our own) and copy what the stylist puts on that body!

Cheers!
