INSPIRATION MONDAY...beatnik version

Olivia Palermo...the inspiration

Hi darling readers, hope your weekend was fun and relaxing.  I worked but kept up with your instagram photos which I love doing.  I am meeting so many new people on there...talking to friendly strangers too.  Today is Inspiration Monday over at twobirds.  I decided to do a beatnik or unconventional version of Olivia's style plus my friend and follower of this blog, Bev, picked me up bright and early this morning for our planned trip to Anthropologie.  Oh that store is scrumptious.  I get so much inspiration from the displays and clothing. I also stopped in The Sleep Number bed store to snag $200.00 worth of free stuff.  How did this happen you ask?  Well, 2 people that Rob and I told about our bed went and purchased a bed for themselves which left us with $200.00 bucks to spend.  Each time someone purchases a bed, we get $100.00 to spend.  I bought new sheets in the shade of "willow" and a new king size pillow for myself.  Rob already has their fabulous pillow.  I only had to pay the difference of 2 bucks.  The sheets are customized to fit the type bed you have and the pillows last a lifetime and have great neck support.   I love my bed so much.  Rob and I both have terrible backs so we splurged for the comfort and support.  Plus it has a built in massage and you can elevate your feet and/or head like a hospital bed.  It's fun!  The cats run like heck when the massage accidentally gets pushed on the remote....



I purchased 3 vintage rings from Goodwill recently, someone must have given up their collection.  This gaudy sucker is adjustable and has a big fake opal like stone in the center with gemstones on the perimeter.  $

Rob taught Caroline to do a high five.  She is a very smart dog. 

Poochy face..I wish he could train them not to lick my face everyday!

Oh, I adore your dogs and love that you include them in your photos.

You look wonderful. I'm quite jealous of your ability to wear a snood.

That's a great casual take on the original look (I prefer it actually - have I said that before? Well, it's true, you do it better. Just sayin'...)
Love your poochy face - I think it's a kissy face actually. So mwah! xxxx
