Inspiration Monday - My current uniform

When I saw the picture that the two birds picked for Inspiration Monday this week I knew it would be easy to play along.  This super cozy laid back look from Katie Holmes is this mama's uniform right now. Oversized sweater/sweatshirt and leggings with boots?  Check, check and check!

It's also giving me a chance to show off my awesome new coat that I bought at Sam's Club of all places!  I tell you, sometimes those memberships pay off.  This is a London Fog and I love it.  What's neat is that it's not all that heavy - but let me tell you it is plenty warm.  I was able to wear it until we went into the huge deep freeze last week.  I'm back to wearing again and it's awesome.

Mr. Monkey has a similar jacket he bought up north this summer.  Lightweight and warm - perfect for running errands when you're likely to get warm inside!

I love that it has a belt too and it also has a hood.  This is one of the best things I've purchased in quite some time.  Plus, you just can't have too many coats when you live in Minnesota!!

For more Inspiration Monday outfits hit up two birds over here.


  1. Katie Holmes is my style icon. I love her classic looks, so effortless and chic. You look fabulous and ready for anything!

  2. This turned out great and what a score on the coat! Sam's Club does surprise you sometimes. Loving the new blog design and name too!

  3. Nice! I love jackets with belts -- winter gear can look so shapeless, and this works wonderful!

  4. Glad to see you are still blogging and taking part in Inspiration Monday! I always loved seeing your takes on their outfits! I'm just getting back into the blogging world and hoping to do my own next week. I'll also be starting my 'Thursdays are for Thrifters' link up again this week!
