Inspiration Monday

I am so glad it's Monday!
I had a terrible stomach bug all weekend and I am so happy it's gone that Monday is a good thing.

Our inspiration this week from Two Birds is Ashley Tisdale.
Seeing as Ashley could be my daughter,
 I needed to "mature up" her look just a bit.
A longer dress and shorter jacket seemed like 
the adjustments needed.
I debated on whether or not to wear tights,
 but since it has been warmer here, 
I went bare.
I think I need to get the ole self-tanning lotion out!
I also debated on the cowboy boots.
  I never know if wearing cowboy boots with a dress 
at my age is appropriate. 
 I decided since I wasn't wearing them with a
 flowing little sundress 
that I could pull it off.

What is your opinion on cowboy boots, dresses and the mature women???

dress-Missoni for Target
jacket- AllSaints
boots-Gianni Bini
sunnies-Coach

I love them! There is no age limit on cowboy boots, especially if you're a southern girl! And you have knockin' legs--I think cowboy boots with this dress, showing off your legs, is PERFECT. Btw, love your hair up.

My opinion is wear whatever you like, whatever your age; if you love it and wear it with confidence, you will look just fine!
The dress is beautiful and works perfectly with the cowboy boots. xxx

I love this on you !! You took the inspiration, didn't copy it, and made a gorgeous version for yourself. I love the boots, and that Aztec dress is killer!

I really love how you pulled the inspiration from Ashley and completely made the look your own.

I think someone being able to pull off cowboy boots has more to do with personal style than age. They definitely suit you!

I think it is a great look. I tried boots witha wide skirt dress and that is wrong (well to me it is): too girly. But cowboy boots and dresses... No problem.
I think tights might have even been better with this look but hey.. If it is too warm it is too warm. But bare lefs in February?? What kind of weather are you having? We are nowhere near those kind of temperatures yet.
