Living Dolls

LEOPARD TOP - TJ Maxx
BROWN CORDS - Gap Maternity
NECKLACE, SHOES - Downtown LA
LEOPARD RING - Forever 21




This morning I emerged from the kitchen to find the girls in their toy box playing.  I wasn't sure what exactly was going on but they seemed to be amused and not fighting which are two very good things.  When I asked Princess Sparkles what she and Pigtails were doing she told me, "we are dolls.  And we are being very very still so you can't find us."  I laughed and asked why she didn't want me to find her and she said, "because you were mad at me for knocking over my cup."  Oops.  I felt a little bad about that one.

Little dolls, Sparkles and Pigtails
Today's "Inspiration Monday" from the ladies at Two Birds is Vanessa Hudgens in a brown-toned monochromatic leopard outfit.  I don't usually copy a look so closely, but I really liked it (though have to admit it didn't necessarily photograph all that well).  I was excited to put on my leopard top since this is probably the last time I can wear it for a while since the belly is growing quickly.  And I finally got to wear some cute fringy shoes I bought in downtown LA at the fashion district.

Anyway, I have to say I look forward to these days because I never have to think too hard about what to wear thanks to "Inspiration Monday."  In fact, I think I'd like to have someone else dress me sometimes.  Like celebrities and their stylists.  It'd be kinda like being a doll!

Oh yes, wouldn't it be great to have someone zoom in and dress us plus do our hair! You look pretty glam for a preggy mommy this morning! Have to give you props for that, I know it's got to be hard! Happy Monday Claire!

sweeties. Love Sparkles' double hairband styling.

Wow! You were able to replicate this look perfectly! I saw the inspiration photo and realized I don't have any leopard print clothing. Bad fashion blogger! :)

you one hot mama. You rock animal print anytime, looks really cute with your cute bump. And the oversized accessories are so cool with the top, you have such a keen eye for style. The shoes are so tribal chic, perfect with the outfit. Another great outfit dear friend!

Kara said...

You look super fabulous as always! I love that you had the items to follow closely....I would have loved to try it with some brown cords like Vanessa. I totally feel you on not having to think too hard on Monday-one of my favorite parts of IM too:-)) Ah, yes, a stylist....that would be so fun!

rachel said...

cute outfit! love the shoes and shirt! your girls are so funny. you should have them play "doll" more often if that's all it takes for them to be good!

Tara said...

I own ZERO leopard print items, which is a major failing on my part, I think. I definitely need to work on that. Love this outfit, and the accessories are absolutely my favorite part. That necklace is especially gorgeous!

Nicole Feliciano said...

yes indeed, leopard is a must this season. great post. and thanks so much for linking up on Monday Mingle.

Jill said...

I'm all about animal prints. You rocked it. Great shoes too!

Mrs. J said...

Your maternity style is definitely an inspiration to me for the future. Every outfit you put together is very cute and comfy. It's like you haven't skipped a beat since becoming pregnant. Love it!

You did a great job copying this look and your version is better of course!!
