Inspiration Monday

Waking up to a dreary, rainy Monday here.
Hope you are having lots of sunshine wherever you are.

Our inspiration from Two Birds today is Julianne Hough.
Talk about the total package!
This girl has it all, not to mention a very handsome brother.
I like Julianne's look here,
 except her top is a little too
 Dancing With The Stars for me.
I went a little different way with my top.
These are my coated jeans,
 which sadly I will tell you after the first wash,
 didn't hold up great.
I even washed them according to the directions.  
My jacket didn't have cool leather sleeves like Julianne's,
 but the shoulders have leather patches.
It's all good!

Is this a look you would wear?
Are you into such lacy tops?

booties-Nine West
sunnies-Steve Madden

I like your take on this look even better than Julianne's. The orange top is perfect and so is that jacket! Bummer about the coated jeans. I hate when things like that happen after the first wash.

I think the orange lace adds more pzazz to the outfit compared with the original inspiration. You do chic casual better than anyone, Brett! xxx

Shon said...

Of course you are wearing one of my favorite colors! It gives the outfit such a punch and the details are right on.

Okay, I am loving everything about this outfit! Too bad your pants didn't hold up through the wash, they still look great though!

I love this with the bright orange shirt... totally cute!

Alexandra Shook said...

I like your color scheme better! I've heard that coated jeans can be hard to care for. I love the look but think I will probably wreck them if I get a pair.

Sorry I haven't been around lately. I don't know what happened to this last week!

Once again you rocked Inspiration Monday your own way. The shell is so pretty & the tops look great - layered.

Great look Brett. Love that pop of color in the sweater, makes it all come together.

I like that you added a bold color to your interpretation. And leather inserts on the jacket, very cool! :)'

GOOD!!!! Really contemporary. Well done. Love the boots. And the jacket and the top.. Oh heck.. everything.

And about the coating of the skinnies...I took them to the dry cleaners the first time, because I was so afraid I would spoil the coating with washing. And they were really expensive....
Alas... the coating was completely gone. SAD
