Inspiration Monday - A great weekend

Whew.  What a weekend!  It was a great, unexpected long weekend.  It was really a gift to have Friday off at the last minute!  We had a wonderful weekend full of family and celebrating.  And now it's back to the grind.  As always, Inspiration Monday takes the sting off of Monday a little bit, although I'm sharing two of my weekend outfits today.  Our model this week is Mary Kate Olson - making me feel my age 31 status very strong today as I still think of her as little Michelle on Full House.  But anyway, her totally laid back outfit was pretty much my uniform the entire holiday weekend.


This first outfit was what I wore on Friday - which was good because late in the day on Thanksgiving it got cold and we got snow.  So this cozy flannel was just the ticket.  I'm not sure how I feel about these skinny jeans anymore - they appear to be stretching out oddly and aren't as...skinny anymore.  It's quite odd.  At any rate, I was more than comfortable for a day of decorating my house for Christmas!

Jeans - Maurices
Necklace - F21
Boots - Target


As you saw in my birthday post yesterday, I dressed up a bit more for my day of fun on Saturday, but yesterday I was back into something cozy for being lazy around the house and finishing up the Christmas decorating.  In the evening we had dinner with my parents for my birthday and also a little bit of cake.  It was a nice day!

Sweater - two birds vintage
Jeans - Gap, thrifted
Necklace - swap w/CC
Shoes - Steve Madden, thrifted


I received a couple of nice new goodies from my parents for my birthday that I'm sure you'll see here soon.  Overall it was a great Thanksgiving and birthday weekend!  Even though it was great, I am ready for a little downtime though before we jump into the Christmas season.  It's going to come fast though I think!

  15. Ya, I think the minute I get off this bus, I'm putting on my flannel shirt. So cozy, pajama like, but appropriate for day to day life!

  16. Adorable inspiration look and very cute second outfit! I love that stripey sweater!

    I have that problem with jeans, especially GAP and ON jeans. They never stay skinny.
