Good Morning darling readers and new followers, every Monday at Suitcase Vignettes I participate in Inspiration Monday hosted by Megan and Nora of   If it is something that you are interested in trying then simply join in on the fun by visiting their blog to get the rules. They will post, earlier in the week, the celebrity photo for you to draw inspiration from.  My outfits may not always look similar to the celebrity's outfit but I am always inspired  to create something new and combinations of items in my closet that I have not tried until now.
I hope everyone had a great weekend!!  I did because I was off from work and went to a Superbowl party at a friend's house where I preceded to eat mostly everything in sight.  The food was absolutely amazing and the beer wasn't too bad either.  I worked out earlier in the day to gear up for the feast.  Does anyone else do this?  I definitaley live to eat!!

New dress Marshall's $3.00
Cardigan TJ Maxx /price less than $10.00
Hat/handmade gift from my talented friend Bev.
Jessica Simpson shoes/Macy's gift from my friend Bonnie

I am feeling comfortable and very visible in this simple easy to wear outfit today so I am linking up to Patti at Not Dead Yet Style for her Visible Monday post.  You should too if you are feeling visible in your cute outfit today.  Have a great day, I love hearing from you!!!  dawn xoxo

LOL Dawn at working out before eating a lot. I'm laughing, but THAT'S really good! I just go for the gusto and just eat, which is BAD. haha Glad you enjoyed your weekend. I watched the Superbowl too. Close and exciting. I just LOVE that dress. I can't believe only $3! You kill me with your finds. I swear you do. Love the print of it and how you paired it with the wine colored tights and cute cardi. Sorry I've been MIA. Sometimes I'll only post 4 days a week. Sometimes 5. I like to give myself a break. I want to THANK YOU for including me on your blog roll and the feature on the right. I'm so glad you like my blog and it's awesome that you're sharing it with others. Again THANK YOU! Another great outfit girl. I'm going to check your other posts I missed. That's me today..playing catch up. HAHAHAHA Take care!

Wow brilliant combination in this outfit!! Love your knitted vest and hat combo! Wonderful with the dress! Much better than my interpretation which looks nothing like it!

Love the print on the dress & the crochet vest and hat give it a great 60's vibe
