Inspiration Monday - Crazy weekend

Well hello!  Welcome to Monday!  Anyone else's weekend go by way too fast?  Man, it was a busy one for me, but not all in a bad way.  I'll recap in a second, but first up as usual, it's Inspiration Monday with two birds.  We've got a bit of a menswear inspired look today from Vanessa Hudgens - or Eddie Redmayne if you'd rather!

I went more after Vanessa's look.  And sadly I don't think Mr. Monkey would be caught dead in Eddie's look, otherwise I would have made him play along!  At any rate, here's what I pulled together for brunch with a good friend on Saturday morning.

I wasn't really in the mood to tuck in my shirt and wear a belt given my pregnant self, so I opted for a long t-shirt instead.  I also missed the boat on the shoes.  I do have shoes similar to the ones Vanessa has on, but chose my leopard ones instead.  Oh well, they're cute right?

Jacket - F21, from two birds garage sale
T-shirt - Maurices
Capris - Duo Maternity, thrifted
Necklace - S&D
Shoes - Xhiliaration, Target 

After brunch with my friend I came home to discover my dad and the Pants Monkey had taken out a good portion of the wall where our new window will be going.  The good news is there is not mold there as we had once feared, but they're still going to replace it when the window is done.  I think they have a tentative game plan for installing it too which is great!  The downside, it'll likely be over Labor Day weekend, but at least it should be done soon!

The rest of our weekend was a little busy with our music group, a wedding reception picnic for one of Mr. Monkey's co-workers, shopping a little with my mom and Mr. Monkey brewed a little bit of beer.  And somehow we still had time on Saturday night to relax with a home cooked Mexican dinner and two movies!  I'm not sure how we pulled that off!

It's a short week for me this week - we have a cabin weekend coming up with our music group.  I'm looking forward to that!  But for now, must work.  Make sure you head on over to two birds for other Inspiration Monday looks!


  1. I love the outfit and loved it on Saturday too!! I had such a great time on Saturday!!

  2. I just adore that little jacket/sweater! I think it shows off your belly in a great way! I like the leopard shoes, I had a pair like that once.

    Wow your weekend sounds like it was fun! Hooray for house projects! I am so glad that you do not have mold, that would have been the worst.

  3. The stripes/leopard print make for fun pattern mixing! Glad to hear there was no mold discovered and now you'll have a new window :)

  8. That jacket is perfect and adorable. Trust two birds to have great taste first and you second. LOL Thanks for the fun compliments, friend! You don't look very 'baby bumpish' in these pics. Sounds like you have had one too many happenings going on around there.

  9. The outfit is great, I love the bolero style jacket and the shoes add the perfect touch :)

  10. I have a similar style jacket only mine is plain navy:)Have a good week!

  11. The flats are perfect for brunch, so no regrets, ok? I love the formula of this outfit ... Fitted through the bump but playing with a bit of swing in the jacket!
