Inspiration Monday

Happy Monday Ya'll!
Ours was a nice wet weekend and looks to be staying that way through the first part of the week.
Hopefully it will wash all the pollen out of the air!

Today at Two Birds our inspiration is January Jones.  Don't you just love her portrayal of Betty on Mad Men?  I will be honest and admit I am a bit more inspired by her Mad Men wardrobe than this look, but it was fun to try and come up with something.
I went with a lace top as well, but not quite as intricate as January's.
  I don't own any sort of leather bottoms,
 so I went with printed jeans.
I added a necklace for some detailing and threw on my beloved Levi's jacket.
I would say my look is much more casual than January's and definitely not red carpet worthy.
It is running errands worthy though!
I will tell you that I had no idea JOE had made his way into my shots. 
Looks like he is going to be camera ham!

So what do you think of January's look?
Does it inspire you or are you more inspired by her
 "Betty" wardrobe.

I like your look so much better than the orginal...your printed jeans are awesome! Have a wonderful week, Brett!

I agree with Pam, I like your look much better. The printed pants are more for everyday than the leather pants. I like January's Mad Men look better too.

Joe is going to be a fun addition to your photos :)

I really like your version. I think it's very wearable and I'd definitely choose it over January's look because, chances are, I'm not going to be on the red carpet any time soon!

I must get a pair of printed jeans. My daughter showed up to dinner the other night in a pair and she looked adorable. You look great Brett and I love the look!

Hmmm I like yours better! It's more cohesive overall and there's a bit of glam with the high wedges! I think it's a little different from your usual style, too, but I like it a lot! Also, Joe is too cute!

I love the printed pants and your lace top. You came up with a really great outfit despite not owning leather leggings. I'm loving that pretty necklace you added!
