Inspiration Monday - Out of the loop

I love participating in Inspiration Monday because I love a good challenge, especially when it comes to my wardrobe, but I gotta tell you, I don't know that I've known who about half of these young actresses have been that I'm copying!  I'm so out of the loop!  I blame it on two things - 1. I am getting older and 2. I don't have cable TV, so I really don't see many commercials or do a lot of channel flipping.  I do read People magazine though so you'd think that would keep me up to date!  Oh well.  Our inspiration model this week is this girl here - Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

This was an easy look for me to copy - while I don't have booties like hers, it gave me an excuse to wear the new boots I bought at Old Navy's after Christmas sale and it was perfect because I wore this outfit for my low key New Years and it did start snowing before we got home, so I was happy to have boots on!

I wore the shades here to try to be just like her.  Overall it really wasn't very sunny on Saturday.  The Pants Monkey and I ran a bunch of errands during the day and I did bring my shades, but didn't really end up needing them.

I love these boots - they are so warm and comfy!  I hope they'll be making another appearance soon.  I have switched back to my Olivia & Joy bag that I got at TJ Maxx early in the fall - I have decided that when I'm running errands or shopping it is nice to have a crossbody bag and be hands free, this one lets me do that and fits nicely over my heavy winter coat!

I was excited to wear a scarf too, I'm really trying to incorporate more scarves into my outfits because it's so popular right now to do so!  I have had this one for a number of years actually, just never knew what to do with it until now!

And once again, I accidentally deleted a comment on my last blog post instead of hitting publish.  Maybe I should have another New Years resolution to not moderate comments from my phone....At any rate, my apologies!  I don't want to alienate anyone!

There will be another outfit post today as I'm wearing one of my Christmas goodies on my first day back at work, but I didn't want to make this post too long, so that outfit will be posted a little later.  Hope everyone had a great New Years and enjoy today if you're luckier than I am and don't have to work!  Don't forget to head over to Two Birds and check out what other folks posted for Inspiration Monday!
