Inspiration Monday - Flip Flop

Greetings everyone!  Happy Monday!  Hope you all had good weekends.  Mine was pretty decent, a little busy but also some relaxy time which was great!  I never did get my Influenster Vlog posted, but I promise it's coming (cause I know you're all on pins and needles to listen to my babbles again...ha).  Anyway, it's Inspiration Monday and today we have Jamie Chung.

I went for the opposite of Jamie's look - instead of denim on top and white on the bottom, I did white on top and denim on the bottom!  Nothing wrong with a little flip flop!

Shirt - White House, Black Market (From cousin)
Skirt - Old Navy
Sandals - Clothes Mentor
Necklace - Butterfly Boutique
Bag - 31 Gifts
Bracelet - Charming Charlie

Boy this white shirt sure does make my nice pale white skin glow all the more though don't it?  I am your typical Scandinavian Minnesota girl - I don't tan, I burn.  So, I just opt to not tan.  Most of the time it doesn't bother me, but today I am just super translucent I guess!

I did a little bit of shopping with my mom yesterday.  Clothes Mentor was having their annual summer sale so I grabbed a few more maternity pieces for summer.  Mostly I've been worried about not having enough comfortable summer clothes to take on our trip to Northern Minnesota in a couple of weeks.  I am no longer concerned about that!  The deals were really great though, they were offering 55% off of all clearanced items, so you really can't beat that!  I do love though that I still have so many items of my regular clothing that still fit - like everything I'm wearing today.  Hooray for elastic!

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


  1. maxi dresses are the way to go when you're pregnant in the summer! i wish they would have been popular when i was pregnant!

  2. I hear you on the fair skin. I don't tan, but my freckles all connect together :) That's the Irish in me I suppose.

    Your flip flopped look is super cute. I agreen with two birds, maxis are definitely the way to go when you are pregnant. Wish they were popular when I was pregnant! Have a great Monday :) Heather

  3. Your outfit looks great! And I love the sandals with that skirt. Can't wait for tonight!!!

  4. The maxi looks so cute and comfy! Yay for new clothes...can't wait to see everything you got :)

    The Tiny Heart

  5. Blue and white is always a gorgeous, fresh combination-I love how you flipped it! This top is really beautiful and I love that I have a fellow pale friend :) We can thank our ancestors for that one, haha. Glad you found a sale for some more maternity clothes too! I bet it's difficult to think ahead to how much you'll grow/or not while pregnant. Elastic is a girl's best friend pregnant or not though, right? haha!

  6. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your take on this, the switch is just perfect :) So beautiful!

  7. I would have reversed it too but it was too similar to what I did for one of the previous IM mondays! You look awesome and I am glad you got some maternity clothes! Hurrah!x

  8. Loving the maxi skirt on you, Beth!

  9. Oh I know! Elastic is a maternity wardrobe essential! hahahaha. This ootd is comfy and cozy looking. Yes, 104°. Yikes. It is to be that all week. Which means my photo-shoots are going to be up against my LR wall for a while anyway (next week).

  10. Elastic is my friend too, and I'm not pregnant! :) I don't purposefully go outside to tan, but my skin does get tanned. My poor husband burns every time.

  11. Great twist on the inspiration! I lurv the skirt. Oh, and just an FYI, ThredUp has maternity clothes also!

  12. Oh my god! I've been away far too long! I had no idea you were pregnant! Congrats!! :) That's so exciting! :) You look great!


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