Inspiration Monday

Son2 is back at school, my house looks like a bomb went off in it and we had a nice rain storm last night.
That all means that I don't have to do anything all day except laze around right???

The girls over at Two Birds gave us an inspiration this week that I was so excited to try.
Our inspiration is Poppy Delevingne.
She and her sister are English models/socialites.
I fell in love with this look as soon as I saw it
 and knew I wanted to add my own twist to it.
(please ignore how white my legs are to Poppy's)
I love all of the layering going on here and it has just been cool enough to pull this off and not burn up.
I decided to add a layer of sequins where Poppy had her gray shirt peeking out beneath the stripe shirt.
I couldn't really decipher what was going on with Poppy's jacket, so I just pulled out this light weight jacket and went with it. 
 I opted for some blinged out flip flops
 and decided to forgo the hat. 
 As I have said many times before,
 my tiny head just isn't made for hats.

Are you a fan of layering with shorts?
Would you wear this right now,
 or is it still too hot where you are?

stripe shirt/shorts-Loft
sequin tank-Banana Republic
jacket-Thrifted
flip flops-Aldo
necklace-BaubleBar

I'd like to wear it - but I don't have the legs for shorts! You, on the other hand, DO! And it's a great casual look on you, Brett, especially with a little flash of sequins to brighten it up! xxxx

I can never understand when it's hot enough for shorts and sandals, but cold enough for long sleeves and a jacket. Mystery of the universe.
But you look very cute all the same.
