Inspiration Monday

Today for Inspiration Monday the girls over from Two Birds 
have chosen Emma Roberts.
The only thing I know about her is that her Aunt is Julia.
She is wearing an adorable dress
 and I really like how she styled it here.
Since I had nothing in my closet that even came
 close to that adorable dress,
 I improvised.
I took a simple LBD and draped a scarf around the neck
 to mimic the pattern down the sides of Emma's dress.
I went ahead and belted the scarf so it wouldn't just go flying off at every move I made.
I have worn this dress quite a lot,
 but would have never thought about styling it 
in this manner if it hadn't been for the inspiration photo.

What has inspired you to try something you wouldn't normally try lately?

This dress is so versatile and the scarf adds a bit of fun and whimsy to it. I really like the booties as well.

Way to go!
Happy Monday!
