Inspiration Monday - Eva Mendes

Monday, July 02, 2012

How is it possibly Monday again already!?

I have to admit that I went shopping in search of something for this week's outfit. This skirt was in White Stuff but when I saw the price, I made a sort of 'pfft!' sound and left it in the shop. I then spent the next 24 hours thinking about it. I drove back into town to make it mine and discovered that it was £10.50 cheaper than the ticket price. Result! (Thank you Two Birds, I couldn't have done it without you).

Had the weather been better I doubt that I would have made like Mendes and tied my shirt in a knot, I haven't done that since high school. As it was the weather remained cold and the wind continued to blow so I chose a warmer option.

Check out Two Birds to see how others interpreted the look.

Hope you're having a lovely Monday!

    1. Thanks. I have to admit that I felt lovely in it all day today.

  3. I KNEW that was Whitestuff as soon as I saw it! It's my favourite shop but I have recently been avoiding it like the plague as it's so expensive except for sighing and cooing over the catalogue! So pretty! Love your pretty interpretation!
    Did I actually come and thank you for your help re the Googlefriend connect? I said thanks in a post but not sure if you'd have seen that or not!

  4. They have a great sale in at the moment.
    Glad I could help with the GFC, sometimes things just aren't as simple as you'd expect.

  5. such a lovely skirt. it clearly pays to go away and have a good think before making a purchase! x

    1. It makes such a change for me, I'm such an impulse shopper!

  6. I love that skirt...and I think you look better than Eva in your version of the look! Although wouldn't it be wonderful if we could have enough sun to tie a knot in a crisp white shirt...just once.... *sigh* xx

  7. Great skirt and who doesn't like a bargain? Keeping everything crossed that the sunshine appears soon.
