Inspiration Monday

Good Morning All.
I trust everyone had a lovely Valentine's weekend.

This Monday our inspiration from Two Birds is Taylor Momsen.
The only thing I know about her is that she was linked to Lindsey Lohan at one time.

Anyway, I am coveting her shoes in a big, big way.
I decided to go with the same idea as her outfit as I don't have anything as fabulous in my closet as she has.
I pulled out this dress that I have had for ages and paired it with a cardigan instead of a coat. 
 I used the same style scarf as Taylor only a different color palette. 
 Then there are her shoes...
I remembered these plaid babies and thought I would add a touch more pattern mixing to the outfit.
I added my gray hand-warmers instead of gloves and decided this was the outfit that represented me.
I like how it all came together and it forced me to pull some items from my closet that I hadn't worn in a while.

Are you a fan of Taylor's look?
How about those shoes???

I like Taylor's outfit but mainly because of her coat. I'm drooling over your booties, to be quite honest!

I love the stripes paired with plaid! The hand warmers just make the whole look fun! What did we ever do before hand warmers were invented? Blessings! Susan

You look terrific in this outfit!

It's interesting and helpful to see how you draw inspiration from a photo and then come up with your own (better!) outfit.
