Inspiration Monday

Happy Monday Morning!
I hope everyone is doing well this fine Veteran's Day.

Today over on Two Birds our inspiration is Jessica Hart.
All I can tell you about her is that she is Australian and was in the Sports Illustrated Swim Suit Edition.
 Jessica is wearing such a classic look here. 
 I am pretty sure just about anyone can pull off this look.
Sadly, I don't own a traditional trench coat,
 but I do own this fabulous blue version.
I decided to put a twist on Jessica's look with 
the cowl neck sweater and added
 a plaid shirt for some interest.
I am not sure why I look so annoyed in this picture,
 because I was so happy to be using my new coffee mug that a friend gave me!! 

No Shop November Update
I confess that I broke down and bought a pair of shoes this weekend.
Someone posted a pair on Instagram that I had been looking for for about 2 months now.
They were on sale and I had a coupon. 
 They ended up being $13.
As son2 says, " I couldn't afford NOT to buy them"
I promise to do better for the rest of the month!!!

I really like your take on the inspiration. The trench coat is such a pretty color!

I almost broke this weekend because I saw a vest that I wanted but decided to be strong. It's soooooo HARD!!!

Your son was right. Such a bargain and after looking for it for 2 months, you cannot pass that up.
I love this look and this coat on you. A bit spring-like. But really lovely.

brett, you definitely pulled off the look! your shoe purchase was a super price. plus it's not like it was an impulse buy. you had been searching for 2 months. knowing when to break your own rules has value too. ;)
