Inspiration Monday - Checked out

Hello!  Hope you all had wonderful weekends - especially those that got to take advantage of an extra long weekend with the holiday on Thursday.  My weekend was lovely.  I managed to get off work a little early on Friday and had a fun date night with my Pants Monkey that included ice cream - some of the best ice cream in our area in fact!  Saturday we ran a bunch of errands and had a belated anniversary dinner with his parents.  Sunday we actually got some stuff done around the house in prep for both the baby and our upcoming garage sale.  So it was a good weekend.  But now it's Monday - but hey, it's Inspiration Monday! Today's model of choice is Rebecca Minkoff.

Her printed pants are so adorable - but none of my printed pants still fit all that well and I wasn't in the mood to wear a belly band with them - not to mention, it's going to be 90 degrees or more today, so a skirt was necessary.

I'm so mentally checked out - there may be five full days of work this week, but it's five days until I have a week long vacation!  And it cannot come fast enough - I swear my office has had more issues lately with the building we are in.  And since I support facilities, well, it's been nuts some days.  But right now my mind is up in Northern Minnesota which is where I will happily be very soon!

 Shirt - Old Navy
Skirt - Cliche Minneapolis
Sandals - Old Navy
Necklace - S&D
Bracelet - Swap with CC

Now if I could only will this week to go just a hair faster!  Then again, if things stay as crazy at work as they have been, maybe it will go fast!

For more Inspiration Monday outfits head to two birds over here.


  1. Lurv the royal blue! I'm so glad you had a good weekend! I'm very jealous of your vacation time coming up!

  2. I can definitely relate to time going slow until vacation. Today is still going slow since it's my first day back! It sounds like you had a good productive weekend. These shoes are so darn cute!

  3. CUTE! I love all of this blue, you look amazing! I am so glad you had a great weekend!

  4. Cobalt blue is definitely your color, Beth! It looks so pretty on you! It's always hard to concentrate at work when you've got a vacay to look forward to. Hope the week goes by fast for you!

    The Tiny Heart

  5. That looks GREAT on you! The color, the fit, the shoes -- it's all perfect! I am happy you have a vacay coming up!!


  6. lucky! i love northern minnesota!! i hope your week flies by!

  7. You look great! Printed skirts are always great in the summer! I hope that your week goes by fast too!

  8. Today was one of those days when time seemed to scream by ("I have too much to do and not enough time to do it!") and crawl by ("how is it still only Monday?"). Hope the week goes by quickly!!!

  9. I looooove those shoes! I'm excited to find out what you're having too :). My appointment is on the 16th but if my doctor doesn't see it I have another appointment on the 24th. We may find out the same day!



    Southern (California) Belle

  10. I think these saturated blues are really a great color for you. The pops of white are fantastic too. I do wish this week was already over. It's been a tough one, and only getting worse.

  11. I wouldn't want anything to do with pants either with those temperatures. :) A week away sounds really fun - hopefully this week goes by really quickly!

    Jess - J's Style

  12. You look so pretty in blue (forget wearing pants, it's too hot). And I know what you mean, Mondays are the slowest day of the week for me.

  13. Well, look at you? You don't look prego in this outfit at all. Just comfy and casual with an 'un-tucked' top. I love your fun blue sandals. I remember them from last summer when I first started following/stalking you, hahahahaha

  14. Such a cute outfit! I adore those shoes with it too!


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