Inspiration Monday - A good weekend

 Happy Monday everyone!  Did you all have a good weekend?  I sure did.  I did a lot of stuff too!  We'll get into that in a minute.  First up, it's Inspiration Monday and today we have Kate Moss (who I always thought was too skinny) in a leopard print coat.


Yep, I had nothing like that in my closet at all, but one of the things I did this weekend was actually go to the two birds garage sale and found this leopard print shirt, so I figured, it was the next best thing right?

Shirt - Gap, via two birds sale
Tank top - Maurices
Pants - Nine West, thrifted
Shoes - Mossimo, thrifted
Necklace - Charming Charlie
Bracelets - S&D, gift

The two birds sale was pretty awesome, everything you could fit in a grocery bag for $20.  You can fit quite a bit, I'll tell you that much!  Thanks again Megan and Nora!


Besides shopping, I had a chance to have lunch with my Pants Monkey on Saturday and then we went and spent one of his birthday gift cards so he could have a couple of things for the upcoming holidays.  After that we got dressed up and went out to dinner for my dad's 60th birthday (we went to Erte in NE Mpls for you local folks).  It was delicious!  After that we went back to my parents for cake and visited some more.  Then we stopped home real quick and changed and headed to a friend's "White Trash" Christmas party.  Everyone was encouraged to dress up in "white trash" type attire.  I threw something together with the help of the Google.  Overalls and a white tank top with a Santa hat.  Yep, classy.  We didn't stay terribly long, but it's another guy that homebrews beer, so Mr. Monkey wanted to at least stop by for a little bit.


Sunday was a day full of laundry and other chores.  Sometimes you need a day to be lazy and to catch up on other things.  I have decided since I have some time off to use that I'm going to take this coming Friday off and make it a short week.  I think I'll do some baking, maybe a little Christmas shopping or maybe just be completely lazy and watch Christmas movies all day!  No matter what, it will be wonderful.

  13. Love your leopard print top! Sounds like a glorious way to shop. Echoing Sheila, no pics of the white trash look? Lol! Sounds like a great theme for party food. Mmm! I can think of a number of recipes that would fit right in at that party.
