Inspiration Monday

Did everyone have a nice weekend?
I can't believe we are back to Monday already.

The ladies at Two Birds gave us Miranda Kerr as our inspiration this week.
Of course she is famous for being a Victoria's Secret Model
and her soon to be ex- husband Orlando Bloom.
Or as I like to call him...Legolas Turner.
This first thing I knew about this outfit is that I don't own a jean skirt of any sort! 
I also wasn't sure I could pull off the double jacket look without looking too bulky.
 I decided to switch up the jacket and skirt. 
 I added my leather blazer for some richness
 and the scarf because it was freakin' cold out!
I am not sure I would say this is one of my favorite looks
 or that I would even wear it again.
But it made me think outside of MY box.  

How about you? 
 Is this an outfit you would re-create or be inspired by?

 No Shop November Update
I did great this week.
Bought some books at the used book store,
 but used store credit that I had accrued. 
All's good.

This is a tough look to re-create, but I think you did very well. That skirt is pretty sweet!

Good job for the No Shop November too. I can feel myself starting to crack, but so far so good! Things have been a little stressful so shopping is always my go-to.

Ooh, your boots are really nice Brett! And I like the black skirt better! I don't have a denim skirt either but I did have a skirt of a denimy colour! x

No denim skirts in my wardrobe either (or any that short!) lve what you did with the look, Brett, the leath blazer is fabulous. And well done for keeping going with No Shop November. xxxx

Oh my! No denim skirt? I love having denim skirts... it solves the "how fancy will it be" conundrum -- it can be dressed up or down. Still, you did a great job of making the inspiration your own!

Great interpretation of the look! I like the double jacket idea!

Love your leather over denim, nice layering!
Chic on the Cheap

Brett,
You pulled it off for sure! I love layering jackets, and did a similar look recently.
It does not look bulky, it looks chic!
XX, Elle

i actually like the way your double jackets and scarf look better than what's her face. i don't know if i could pull the double jacket thing. i imagine i would be uncomfortable.
