Inspiration Monday - Going on a picnic, leaving right away

I'm here! I might be a little later to the party today, but I'm not missing Inspiration Monday just because it is a work holiday! The birds picked a lovely choice for me to duplicate for a day off of work actually, so I I'm excited about this one!  Here is gorgeous Halle Berry.

And here is laid back comfy Bethie!  I love that I'm getting a little more use out of this peasant blouse, I thought maybe I wouldn't use it much once winter was over, but it's such thin, lightweight material it seemed a perfect choice for today.  We're heading to a picnic at the Pants Monkey's grandmother's house, so if I sit in the sun, I won't worry as much about burning my pale little shoulders!

You know what else is the best about work holidays?  Not drying or doing much to my hair.  Oh how I love that!  And the other best thing?  The Pants Monkey is home to take my pictures, so I can use my iPhone again.  LOVE that.  Love it. 

Speaking of the Pants Monkey, thanks to all for the anniversary well wishes yesterday!  You are all so sweet and kind!  I will have an outfit post from our dinner out yesterday for you all tomorrow!  In the meantime, I'm heading off to enjoy the rest of my holiday, likely with a beer in hand at the picnic!  Don't forget to check out two birds right here for more Inspiration Monday outfits!

Outfit rundown:
Shirt - Decree, JCPenny
Tank - Mossimo, Target
Shorts - Old Navy
Sandals - Mootsie Tootsie

  1. Hey Bethie! I'm even later to the party than you!!! I LOVE that top! My mum gave me a similar one from the 70's (but in blue and white) and I adore it, it's so good for the sun, I wore it so much when I lived in Indonesia!
    Hope you don't burn! I can't believe that I sat out in the sun with a large wide-brimmed hat on my head yesterday, half in the shade and STILL my cheeks went pink!

  2. You look awesome and fresh! Great inspiration!

  3. Perfect casual look for an outdoor picnic. I wish I could go outside without being eaten alive! I have so many bites. I'm supremely lazy and never do anything except wash my hair on normal days. Occasionally it'll get the swipe of a flatiron, but wash and go is my motto!

  4. A picnic sounds so nice! I haven't been to a picnic in... five years, maybe???!!!

  5. Such a pretty top and you're making me nostalgic for picnics (I hope you had a grownup style and snuck a flask or beer in there!) I hope you had a lovely anniversary-looking forward to seeing pics!

  6. Picnic sounds great...i haven't done one for a long's just not my hubby's cup of tea. That's a perfect outfit for the occassion...a nice flowy top with a pair of cute shorts. Looking forward to see your anniversary pictures :-)


  7. Happy Memorial Day! Sounds like you had a good one. I like lazy days too, that's what holidays are for!

  8. i am backwards commenting today! a picnic does sound fun, especially one that involves beer!


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
