Inspiration Monday

I hope you had a great weekend.

Today's Monday Inspiration from Two Birds is Elizabeth Hurley.
I have to tell you that I was so excited to have an inspiration woman that was close to my age!! 
Liz Hurley is a beautiful and has a classic style.
 I knew I had the makings of this outfit buried in my closet
 and was excited to see what my version would look like.
Obviously my blazer is a "louder" version than Liz's,
 but the lines are the same. 
 I choose a gray turtle neck instead of a v-neck,
 but was able to work the leopard print scarf in just fine.
I pulled out my vintage Dooney and Burke and threw on my sunnies to complete the look.
I will confess,
 that it was just too cold for sandals around here,
 so I did opt for my leopard smoking slippers.
Liz was spotted wearing this look at the airport. 
 I think I would definitely wear this for flying and probably will the next time I board a plane.

Would you wear something like this to fly in or would you rather something more comfortable?

Morning Brett!

I would. I would wear 'ither your outfit or my outfit. My would be easier to wear since I have it here. hahahaha.

I love your smoking slippers. I want some leopard shoes in some form. I saw some heels at my thrift store last week but they were size 9 and I wear a 6.5. :(

Did you see my post? I am so nervous about it.

I really like the way the scarf is tied. It pulls the whole look together. Everytime you wear this blazer, it makes me want a pink one! Heather

i love this look on you. i love the purple with the leopard and those shoes are great. i usually opt for more comfy on planes...i'd probably do leggings and a big sweater.

You look great in jeans, and I prefer the bright pink of your jacket to Liz's neutrals. I hardly recognise her without white jeans!
It's good to be comfortable on flights but please, no track suits! xxx

Oh, I LOVE your take on the look. The fuchsia blazer is gorgeous, and it is fabulous with the leopard shoes! I don't usually look this fab when I fly :)

Rebecca said...

Winner! Love your take on the outfit!

I would wear something more comfy on the plane. Sweats comes to mind! haha

Renae said...

Thank you so much Brett! I am planning to do more full body pics in the future, like on just Monday's with two birds. I want to feature my thrifty finds. When I first started my blog I wanted to focus on thrift but needed to slim down my body first. I still working at it but feel I am "ok" looking enough now.

your D & B bag is perfect dear brett! i am digging your scarf too. it would depend on how comfortable the outfit actually was, on whether i'd fly in it or not. :)

I'm still bummed that I never got one of those Gap blazers - so cute! And I'm loving your slippers. I love being smart but comfy when I travel - this is perfect.

Omg I love Elizabeth Hurley's jacket and scarf. You look great. I like the idea of pairing the leopard scarf and shoes with that outfit.

Love how you re-created this look - those leopard flats are awesome!

Personally I don't like to fly in jeans....I feel so restricted in the seat as is and the high altitude always makes me feel fluffy! I love this look and would love to buy a velvet blazer the issue is once you bend your elbows you'll get lines on the arms that don't go away!

I love the term 'smoking slippers', I can just imagine you in a silky robe, glamming it up Audrey Hepburn style! Loving the colour of the blazer paired with leopard. When I travel, I tend to wear maxi dresses because they act as blankets and are so cosy.

The shoes and jacket are a beautiful pair. Have a great time. dawn suitcase vignettes xo
