Maxi Monday

Every week one of my favorite blogs, Two Birds, does an Inspiration Monday link-up. I have discovered lots of other blogs through the link up. I also just love seeing how Megan and Nora, the two sisters that run Two Birds, create outfits inspired by a celebrity photo. I haven't participated in a really long time because I always forget about it until I am already dressed and at work Monday morning. When they posted this awesome picture of Michelle Trachtenberg, aka Harriet the Spy, in a maxi dress and denim jacket I just HAD to participate.

I brought my striped maxi dress and denim jacket with me to upstate New York this weekend, but didn't find the opportunity to wear them. I think it all worked out for the best because I found an awesome maxi dress on clearance at Target over the weekend. So this morning I got up early so I could take pictures and edit them before leaving for work.

This is the perfect outfit for that Monday where you really don't want to go to work and can't believe the weekend is over already. Is anyone else having one of those days?

  5. You've got the same dress as Bethie!!!! You look really really lovely in it! I don't think I've 'met' you before, so it is lovely to have come over here to meet you! I love the Inspiration Monday challenge too and yes, discovered lots of lovely blogs!

  6. You look so cute! I love it! I hope you have had a great Monday!

  7. Maxis and jean jackets are the best combo! Love this on you.


  8. I think jean jackets and maxi dresses were made for each other! I like the print of your dress. Im glad to see you rocking the maxi dress! You look soooo cute!!!

  9. So many 90s looks are coming back! I love, LOVE the combo of the maxi dress and the jean jacket, it is such an adorable and carefree look. (The denim and the color of your maxi go so well together.) And those white sandels really pop against the whole look. :)
