Inspiration Monday - Ashlee Simpson

Monday, July 30, 2012


I do not own any orange shorts and I definitely do not own any orange leather shorts. I had thought that any pair of shorts would have to do, I thought about wearing these, worn for an Inspiration Monday last summer, but whilst in town on Saturday I saw this cute skirt and decided that this would be better. It's not orange but it's close enough. This will be my last purchase until September as I'm on a spending ban for the duration of August and have set myself a little challenge to keep me occupied.

I actually wore this on Sunday as I have a 'no thigh' rule for work, but I can be forgiven for that, right?

I mentioned last week that I'd organised a Clothes Swap, I just thought I'd let you know that it went well. We raised just shy of £170 for the charity and a number of people have asked if there will be another one and, you know what, I think there will be.

Thanks to Two Birds for another great inspiration, see the others here, and as I type I'm wondering if Baby Bird was welcomed into the world this weekend?

Hope you all have a fabulous week.
Love

    1. I also have a no armpit rule, a no shoulder rule and a no earring that will make a clattering sound on the telephone rule.
      Too many rules??
