Inspiration Monday

Today over on Two Birds our Inspiration is Michelle Dockery.
She plays Lady Mary on Downton Abbey.
Are you as huge of a fan of the show as I am??
Honestly, I would love to try on all the outfits Michelle wears as Lady Mary!
Michelle happens to be one of those people that looks great in anything she puts on. 
 This very simple look is so chic on her.
I went with what was in my closet,
 but I normally wouldn't wear such a full skirt with this fuller blouse.
  It is okay,
 but a closer fitting blouse like Michelle's is a better way to go.
I know the see through trend is either a love it or hate it kind of thing. 
Usually I would wear a cami under this shirt,
 but decided to be more daring today. 
 Hey, why not??

What is your opinion of the sheer blouse trend?
Would you or have you worn it?

blouse-Zara
skirt-Old Navy
shoes-Nine West
bracelet-Ily Couture
watch-Fossil

You nailed this Brett! The skirt and top are perfect for this inspiration photo. As far as the sheer top trend, I would definitely do a cami. I am just not that brave to go with the bra. Love this!

Like it for a blog inspiration post...but I do not recommend wearing it out without a cami. Covered is often more stylish and sexy than revealing is. Have a great week, Brett!

I think your styling of this look is SPOT ON. You look amazing! I'm always a little cautious with whether or not to wear a cami under shirts, but sometimes you've just got to go for it! You look great!

Michelle Dockery is one of my favorites. She always looks good, not screaming for attention, etc. I like your interpretation of this look because I think it's very you! The hemline of this skirt is so fun, too. It looks like it must swoosh really nicely whenever you move.

Brett,
Love this look on your! The sheer top adds, and it is good to be bold online, if not here, then where?
I do love Michelle, she is georigous, but I truly like your outfit more.
XX, Elle
