Inspiration Monday

It was a sad weekend here in Carolina when the Panther's just couldn't pull out a win on Sunday.
Now both of my teams are out of the play-offs.  The Saints lost on Saturday.
There's always next year.

Today, the girls over on Two Birds chose Katie Holmes as our inspiration.
I never really know what I exactly think about Ms. Holmes.
I am not sure where she is going dressed like this. 
 Not that her look is horrible or anything,
 but I expect more from my celebrities!
Her boots and coat are pretty fabulous though.
I decided to give my sweatshirt a little pizazz by 
adding some bling to the neckline.
 I also threw on my velvet skinnies with it.
Nothing wrong with skinnies and a sweatshirt,
 just dress it up a bit!

Are you a sweatshirt and skinnies/leggings girl most of the time in the winter?

sweatshirt-Kohl's
velvet skinnies-Loft
boots-Matisse
coat-Dillard (very old)
monogram necklace-c/o oNecklace
bling necklace-Marshall's

I expect more from celebrities too! I think you're out-shinning Katie here for sure - your look is very put together!

No, I am definitely not a sweatshirt and skinnies girl, I don't possess either (but you already knew that!)
You look very chic, Brett, and way more at ease and elegant than Katie Holmes in that photo, doesn't she look awkward? I am really wanting some tan boots, but can't find any I like that I can afford... Poor me! xxxx

this is why i could never be a celebrity...too much pressure to look good all of the time. i happen to love a casual look, and i love how you dressed yours up!

I know it...these games have been some real downers!!

You look great and the bling is definitely a winner.

Happy Week to you and yours!

Cozy and warm is definitely what I go for in the winter. This outfit is great!

Katie Holmes style is very down to earth girl next door. I think she purposely tries to dress like a normal person when she is out and about. She's a horrible actress though, lol!

I was so sad about the Panthers! :(

Also, you look so much better than Katie Holmes here. What is up with her stance? Does she have to go pee or something? Weird.

AND...I nominated you for the Liebster award over on my blog ;)

This is a perfect take on that look. I really, really like the proportion of the tall boots with the long jacket.

Brett, I love that ourfit on you and I think the browns are great one you. Velvet leggins sounds so comfy, i should look for a oair. I love the bling you added to your sweatshirt, perfect pop of shine!
I like Katie's look here, and white I do like a bit more polish for a celeb i think she has great taste; her brown ( alpaca?) coat is gorgeous!
XX, Elle
