Inspiration Monday

I hope everyone had a great weekend.
Saturday here was just miserable, so husband and I had a Netflix marathon day.
Luckily on Sunday the sun came up and it was beautiful outside.

Today over on Two Birds our inspiration is Elizabeth Olsen.
I am curious as to why she is never photographed with MK and Ashley??


I busted out my leopard print skirt
 which I haven't worn in quite awhile
 and paired it with my motorcycle jacket.
  I knew I wouldn't be wearing my jacket all day,
 so I added a pop of color underneath.
  You know me~I have to have color.
As you can see, I didn't stop with the red sweater,
 I added a deep eggplant cami under that. 
 If you are going to add color just go for it!
Basically I had 3 different looks with this outfit 
depending on the time of day you saw me.
I love an outfit that can be that versatile.  

Would you have added a pop of color to this outfit
 or 
would you have stayed dark through and through?

skirt/cami-Loft
red sweater-J.Crew
boots-Express
moto jacket-JCPenny
tights-Old Navy
necklaces-F21
random bracelets

So cute, love that jacket paired with the skirt!

A big yes to the pop of color! I really like how you can still see the red cardi peeking out from under the zipped jacket, and that you get a double dose of color without the jacket. It's a fun look with the leopard print skirt! :)

A big yes to the pop of color! Especially the red and purple together.

Mary Kate and Ashley dress horrible, so they don't want to get upstaged by their cute better dressed sister, LOL! Did you see that bag one of them had on at the Oscars after party? It was horrid. Heather

My weekend was an okay one. I worked on Saturday and was sick all day yesterday. I'm starting to get back to my normal self. Your outfit is so adorable.

Teddi said...

brett, your motorcycle jacket with the zipper detailing was a lovely match for the inspiration. i like how you added the color! :)

Perfect! I really love your look today! Much much better than Baby Olsen's.
Definitely one of my fav outfit of yours!

So versatile and I do love that red! You're right about Elizabeth... maybe they just don't attend the same events? Although I remember reading an interview with her where she said she didn't want to get by on her sisters' fame.

Stephanie @ Henry Happened said...

Yeah, I prob would have worn a black top b/c I'm boring like that - kudos on the red! Love your jacket too, a motorcycle jacket is on my list!

Rebecca said...

I like the moto jacket. It looks great with the bright top.

Yay! A celebrity that I recognize on first view lol. I love what you did here the sweater looks great with the leopard skirt

I love the color you added to the outfit! Isn't it interesting how something like a leopard print can serve as a neutral and to with so many things? Love that. I'm curious. What did you and your hubs watch on netflix? Always looking for a new show since I have given up the news!

I'm voting for a pop of color. Love your take on the inspiration! Debbie @ ilovemylemonadelife.com

I'm in love, love, love with every single piece you're wearing! Animal prints seem very big again, and that's a good thing.
I have a red/purple combo for an upcoming VM ;-)

Your hair is so nice, how do you do it like that? Love your colourful version of the look! It felt very weird for me to be in all black and grey yesterday- I always like to have colour too!x

pastcaring said...

Oh yes, I would have gone with colour too! You look lovely, Brett, that is a great skirt on you, look at your fabulous legs! xxxx

I went through a period of wearing purple and red together in high school. Loved it!

Watching movies is the best thing to do on a gross day.

Love your leopard skirt, the big print is so fun and I like it so much more than my small printed one.

Very, very nice. Love the pop of red with the skirt. Would not have thought of that. Thanks for the inspiration.
