Inspiration Monday

Hello October!
I hope everyone had a great weekend.
Husband and I did tile work all weekend and accomplished quite a bit on our rental property remodel.

Today for Inspiration Monday our inspiration is Busy Phillips. 
 She always seems like she would be a fun celeb to hang out with.
Once again my look is a little more casual than the inspiration. 
 I also didn't see myself getting away with the socks and ankle booties at my age.
I went with a similar silhouette, but in darker colors. 
 Check out my earrings,
 I got them so long ago that I couldn't even tell you the last time I wore them. 
 It was nice for them to see the light of day again.
I couldn't resist imitating the  braid and geometric necklace.
  I think Busy and I could hang together don't you?
I went with more of a heeled oxford than the bootie, 
just to dress it up a bit.

Would you wear the socks and booties?
What do you think of that look?

I like your take on the inspiration. That skirt is one of my favorites of yours. I would not wear socks with the oxfords either. If the boot was a little higher, maybe. Have a great Monday! Heather

I love the earrings and that you braided your hair. Great ensemble.

I love your version, the leopard print skirt is fabulous on you!
I'm not convinced by the socks, though, I would have left them off too. Love your plait! xx

Hey Brett, great interpretation! You look very cute! You got the jewellery to a tee too! I was going to try the sock thing but I couldn't find any dark socks that were matching and weren't some hideous lurid shade! I really need to get my washing machine fixed!!!

I missed out on that skirt from LOFT. I think you did a great job interpreting the look!

I would definitely wear socks and booties if I had the right type. I don't think I do right now though. Love this look!

Love the heeled oxford! It's nice to see an "above the knee" skirt. I think there are some silly "rules" that women over a certain age need to lower the hem.. I feel it's more a matter of what you wear with it and how the legs look :) You look FAB!

Your look is even better- I love your bright earrings and animal print skirt- so sassy! Do you watch Cougar Town? You could be Courtney Cox & Busy's new best friend, not that I'm implying you're a cougar, you're just as sexy as those ladies that's all!
