I caved and took my pictures outside this morning even though the sun wasn't quite up yet. I just couldn't resist, it is so nice outside and is only going to get nicer!
One of my favorite things about reading other blogs is that I can gather inspiration. I can't take credit for today's outfit. I saw the idea on the blog Messy Jess C found here. Her blog is adorable and she wore an outfit that I thought, hey, I can just about duplicate this! So, I gave it a go today - I think she wears this look better, but I gave it a good old fashioned try!
Unfortunately I don't have a lighter colored jacket, I think that is the one thing that would fix this look just a bit. Just another thing to add to the list for after the shopping ban.
I am trying hard not to match my bag to my outfit as I could be really bad about that last summer when I was first blogging, I always wanted my bag to match. So I've more or less broken the habit, except I couldn't help it today, I had a bag that ties all these colors together. It's one I haven't even carried in close to a year as I wasn't even planning on keeping it, but today I thought, maybe I'll give it another try. Yes it's a Coach, but let me tell you, got it for a steal. I have never ever paid even close to full price on a Coach bag. Yay for Ebay and thrift stores!
Halfway through the week. Jealous of Mr. Monkey, he took tomorrow and Friday off. He's going to have outstanding weather. He needs the time, his job has been beyond stressful for close to a year now and as much as I'd love to be off and home with him, I know he needs some time for himself. That doesn't mean I can't still whine a bit about being jealous though! Happy Wednesday!
