Inspiration Monday

I survived my 50th and what a great birthday it was.
If you follow me on twitter or instagram then you know my friends threw me a surprise party.
I hope to have a post up about it soon.

As for our inspiration today ~ it is Lauren Conrad.  She always looks great and never trashy.  I love that about someone her age.
You can check out other LC looks at TwoBirds.
 I love this simple, fresh look that anyone can wear and look great. 
 A crisp, white shirt always works no matter what it is paired with.
I will have to admit that I really wore this look like this most of the day. 
 It was a bit cold to go sans coat.
I love LC's forest cords, but mossy green would have to do.
  I also added some jewelry because I wanted to wear some of my birthday gifts!!

Do you agree that a crisp, white shirt is a wardrobe must have?

The coat is the perfect touch as it picks up the leopard in Lauren's belt.

HAPPY 50th girl!!! You look at least a decade younger so don't sweat it! When you stop rocking a leopard print trench, that's when you can worry :) I love the colour of these cords and those booties are beautiful!

I love your inspired outfit. And keep the jacket on...it looks amazing, especially with those boots. Like the way you belted your belt too.

You get a "PERFECT" from me for this outfit. Really good. And yes I agree upon the crispy white shirt. So I bought three of them. Only to find out that my bosom is too big for blouses and they look ridiculous. Sigh...
Gone off blouses now.
