Skinny Cargo Pants, Sequin Tank and Striped Cardigan - Inspiration Monday

OLIVE SKINNY CARGO PANTS - Old Navy
STRIPED CARDIGAN - Pretty Good
SEQUIN TANK TOP - Old Navy
FEDORA - Eugenia Kim for Target
DAISY STUD HEELED CLOGS - Forever 21

Yesterday at Fedora's house, I found Princess Sparkles and her friends applying make-up on each other.  It was funny to hear them tell each other, "close your eyes" as they smeared lipstick all over each other's faces.  They looked like they belonged in the movie, "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane" or clones of Robert Smith from the Cure.

Today's "Inspiration Monday" comes from Drew Barrymore.  Thanks to Two Birds for the link!  At first I was trying too hard to copy Drew's look, then I finally let go and did my own thing.  I decided to make my military piece be the skinny pants and did the stripes in the sweater.  And I went with a sequin tank (because everything needs a little bling!). 

Anyway, today I'm a little tired...as is Princess Sparkles and Pigtails.  Maybe too many activities over the weekend.  I better do as Princess Sparkles and her buddies do and apply some make-up (though not quite as heavy handed) so at least I look awake in Pigtail's baby class!

I actually love your spin on the outfit, it makes it more you instead of a copy. I want that hat! I'm so mad I missed the hat line! I love the bead cuff, where did you get it??

ps. "What Ever Happen to Baby Jane" has to be the craziest and funniest movie ever. It came on Turner Classic Movies last month.

I have to agree, your take on this is wonderful, I see the inspiration, but I also see how you make it all your own... also that hat is pretty much amazing! I am literally kicking myself for not buying any of the Eugenia Kim for Target hats... you always make them look so good!

Oooh, I love your take on the inspiration look! And that hat is gorgeous!

And yeah, like you ever need makeup. You're gorgeous, my dear!

Bonnie said...

I love the interpretation of Drew Barrymore's look. This is one of my favorite styles of clothes to wear because I feel that it really fits my personality. I also love that you kind of inverted the colors that Drew used. You wore a lighter cardigan and a darker shirt. It's a nice way to make the outfit your own.
And you look adorable in that hat. <33

Gorgeous bracelet!

I totally wanted to play along with the inspiration this week, because that look of Drew's is one of my favorites, and then I forgot...boo!

Oh well, I'm adding your version to my inspiration folder, too, because I love it :)

Love the look. It's a really unexpected choice of elements. Made me grab my striped sweater jkt out of the giveaway pile, and those olive jeans are fab! I want them in any color.
