Inspiration Monday - Luck O The Irish

Hello everyone!  I'm actually participating in two birds Inspiration Monday for the first time in weeks!  Can you believe it??  Anyway, the model this week is Alyssa Miller - Jake Gyllenhaal's girlfriend.  

My pictures aren't the best, my regular camera died so I had to rely on the cell phone this morning - but I kind of went for a mishmash on both of their outfits in a way!  And it's St. Patrick's Day so I had to pull in some green too!

I am a small amount Irish - and I know, aren't we all on St. Patrick's Day? - and it may not be much, but I'm proud of what I have!  We'll be celebrating this evening with corned beef brisket and a little beer.  Last year Mr. Monkey and I may have went a little overboard in our celebrating, so I'm kind of glad we will be keeping it a bit more low key this year!

Shirtdress - Gap, thrifted
Jacket - AMX, from cousin
Leggings and boots - Target

And before I go, I have to share this picture of my little lucky charm  - he just barely fits into this onesie I bought him for today from Old Navy, but it at least works well enough for today!  He's my favorite.

He was so well behaved at my cousin's wedding this weekend - I was pretty proud of him!  He did great in the car too which gives us encouragement for a bigger road trip we'll be taking this summer!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all!  And be sure to check out two birds here for more Inspiration Monday outfits!
