Inspiration Monday - Wide stripes

It's Monday again!  And I'm linking up with the lovely ladies of Two Birds once again for Inspiration Monday.  This week's inspiration is Olivia Munn seen below:

She's lovely.  I didn't copy this look 100%, but when I was shopping with my friend on our day off last Thursday, I found a shirt that I thought was similar, but more to my taste.  And it was the perfect choice to wear out to dinner on Saturday night with the Pants Monkey for our early birthday celebration.  We went to Moscow on the Hill in St. Paul - fabulous food and vodka bar, if you live in MN you should make the trip over there.  Anyway, here is my interpretation:

This shirt from Forever 21 was a steal, so I didn't feel bad buying it, and it was the first day of my no longer being on a shopping ban, so I thought I deserved a treat.  Between this and the necklace you saw on Friday, I spent just around $20, so not bad at all.

I love the lace detail on this shirt.  Definitely need a little something under it because it's pretty see-through, but I have plenty of camis and t-shirts that should more or less fit the bill for that!

Added some simple black pants, shoes and jewelry and I was good to go!  I think the Pants Monkey liked it too. :)  

Head over to Two Birds to check out other blogger's interpretations of this look!  Also, if you are a local reader, check out details on the Two Birds blog for their next Vintage sale coming up the first weekend in December.  I was on my "ban" during their last sale, but this time I plan to check it out!

Have a great day!
