INSPIRATION MONDAY...Pippa Middlleton

Pippa Midddleton is our inspiration this week and I love her outfit...it is totally my style and level of comfort for all day wear....love this.  Linking up with twobirds.


Hello darlings hope you had a relaxing weekend, the weather here was just perfect.  Cool and sunny.  I worked the entire weekend and all went well with the Seniors but the Halloween post party tiredness hit me like a ton of bricks.  I was dragging myself home after work{driving with one eye} and last night I went to bed at 7pm.  The extra hour did nothing for me but I am happy to have it.  Today is Inspiration Monday and I needed this extra boost to motivate me.  Thank you lovely birds...and speaking of birds, looks as though Megan and Nora were busy this weekend...wink. 


My entire outfit is NOT thrifted with the exception of my thrifted necklace for $1.99.  This is a first as we all know, I love me some thrifted finds!!   We are having this tree taken down before it falls, so I got one last shoot with it...on it, and under it.  Breakdown of my outfit: Lauren Conrad for Kohl's floral and ruffle dress on sale during the Summer, Apt. 9 sweater Kohl's on sale, Nine West Vintage Collection boots from Macy's on sale and with a gift certificate.  They were regularly $189.00 and I paid (sit down before you faint) $32.00 bucks.  Yay!  I covered them with little boots warmers things that have buttons on them.  Coach  Kristen bag, gift from my husband.  Oh by the way, I got the idea to climb the tree in this shoot from my pup Georgia after I saw her chasing a squirrel.  Now, if she could just teach me some patience...stay inspired!! Yes, that means you!  Also linking up with Patti at Visible Monday...almost forgot...sorry Patti darling....thanks for hosting!!
