Inspiration Monday

Happy April Fool's Day.
I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend!
Mine was very nice with both sons and husband.

Today our inspiration from Two Birds is Victoria Secret model, Alessandra Ambrosio.
I am pretty sure she looks good in anything she would put on her body, but I love the cute little printed dress she is sporting.
 I had gotten my cute little printed dress at the Old Navy $20 dress sale a week or so ago,
 so I knew immediately that it would be perfect for this challenge.
I will admit that I wasn't quite ready to show my lilly white legs out in public just yet,
 so I added the colored tights. 
 I don't own anything like that fabulous fringe bag 
of Alessandra's so I went with color instead.
  The bag picks up the burgundy in my belt.
I love wearing  booties with cute little dresses,
 but am hoping to give those up for sandals very soon.
I think this is a great look that any age can pull off
 and can also be styled many different ways.

Are you going bare legged yet?
What finally makes you decide that it is time to bare the legs?

She could wear a paper bag and still look great, ha ha!

Your printed dress is so pretty and I am loving the colored tights you paired with it. No bare legs yet, but I am so looking forward to it! Heather

Wow, your dress looks really really pretty Brett, you totally rock Allessandra's look! Yes, I also didn't want to do bare legs and I contemplated the same colour tights as you but mine have somehow got blue dye leaked all over them, I think I washed different coloured tights together!x

I went bare legged for the first time this weekend. But in Southern California you can kind of get away with it any time of year ;) LOVE those booties. I've been dying for a pair all winter.

What a cute littly copy cat you are.
Looks very nice this dress with the matching tights and the shooties (this is a word I just learned).

You look just like the inspiration photo - beautiful!

I think you asked me about bare legs a while back. I don't tan, so I just let my bare white legs hang out there, so they match the rest of me...lol. But it's not bare-leg weather yet 'round these parts, with highs falling into the high 40s later this week. Nope. This Casper Gal will be keeping her lily white legs warm a bit longer!
