INSPIRATION MONDAY...

Taylor Swift...

Hi and welcome to Inspiration Monday where you get to burn 2 of your finger(s) with a flat iron, wear your hat inside out with white tag on top and not know until you are almost finished the shoot, have your new camera freeze up which ended the shoot, forget to bring the remote control with you which is the entire reason for getting the camera, and not know how to set the timer as you call your husband from the dog park in the freezing, windy, weather only to find out that he can't help you.  What the French is going on?  I am afraid to continue with my day...I am now in bed all cozied up until I have to work.  Frig it!  Rant over!

<><>
 Vintage Pendleton Coat/Goodwill $5.99
If you look closely, you can see the tag on top of the hat, ignorance truly is bliss. The dogs had fun! Anyway darlings, it is Monday and I am excited about having the opportunity to play along with the all  inspiring, dynamic duo, sisters Megan and Nora at twobirds blog.  You should play along too.  They post a celebrity inspiration photo earlier in the week to give you plenty of time to plan your outfit for Monday. I am always late or the last one to post so don't follow my lead, I am just saying that YOU have plenty of time...

I am also feeling pretty visible in my vibrant, vintage, thrifted Gucci boots that I scored at Village Thrift a while back for less than 10 bucks, so I am linking up to Patti at Not Dead Yet Style for her Visible Monday post.  Check both links here and here.  Have a great Monday and stay inspired...tonight is Bingo with the seniors.  Big money, big money.  Just kidding, we reward with .35cent coupons  for the candy store in the lobby and cookies.  dawn xoxo

I had a tag hanging out the back of a jacket while at dinner with friends. I was so embarrassed!
I bet Taylor wishes she had those blue Gucci boots, I know I do. You look fabulous.

The coat is such an amazing thrift store find. I had to laugh at all the troubles you described...as most style bloggers have been there at one time or another.

This is a Dawn classic! So colorful and fun. Except for all of the mishaps!!! Hope your week goes better than this shoot!

Lisa said...

Love the blues and greens together. And what great thrift finds with the boots and coat!

Ahrgh, I'm on a no blogging ban this week but I couldn't resist as your outfit is soooooooo cute! Those boots are sensational!!!! (and the coat, and the hat!!!!!)
Oh and re the tag, if it makes you feel any better, I discovered the beret I have been wearing all day is covered in green highlighter pen, I must have put it in my bag with a pen with the lid left off, so you are not alone in embarassing hat gaffs!
Hope you are having a nice day!
