Inspiration Monday

Did everyone have a nice weekend?
I had a lovely visit with son2.

Today's Inspiration Monday photo from Two Birds is none other than the infamous
 Pippa Middleton.
She has great style on most occasions and is undeniably beautiful. 
 She seems like she would be pretty fun to hang out with as well.
This challenge was a bit of a stretch for me just because
 I don't really own a lot of dresses for this time of year. 
 I will wear the heck out of a dress during the summer,
 but fall and winter...not so much.
I paired my motorcycle jacket with this wrap dress, 
added a pair of heeled oxfords
 and pretty much called it a day.
I did add the broach to pin the collar back on my jacket so the neckline of the dress could be seen.
Sadly, I do not own a fabulous leopard clutch.

Are you a big dress wearer when the temperatures start to dip?

I love Pippa's style! Loving that gorgeous dress and the jacket.

I love dresses and in theory would love to wear them in the winter, but I usually end up changing at the last minute. I like to be warm!

You look lovely! The dress and that jacket go well together. And just add some tights and you're good to go for a chillier day!

You know, I'm not sure I could do these inspiration posts. You have to be creative... which I'm not. You've been doing a great job! Including this one!

Love your version, Brett! I think dresses are versatile pieces for colder months, just add tights and boots and a top layer, and you're good! xxx

I think you did a great job using pippa as your inspiration, do you have leopard heels or a scarf? That could sub as the bag:)

Kezzie said...

You look gorgeous Brett! Like me, you seemed to go for a Kate Middleton-engagement-style dress!!! Hee hee!

Teddi said...

brett, you look lovely! i like the bow & wrap detailing of your dress. i'm getting excited to wear my long sleeve dresses, & tights with boots. so, yes, i wear dresses in the fall & winter. i get so tired of sandals and being sleeveless.

Lovely interpretation... my faves are the brooch (so unexpected!), the color blue of your dress, and those fabulous heeled Oxfords. :)
