Faux Jeffrey Campbell Litas and a Sleepy Monday

"You tired?"  Pigtails asked.
I nodded yes.
"Go sleep."
Haha.  Don't I wish.

BLUE STUDDED TUNIC - Collective Concepts (thrifted), $5
OLIVE SKIRT - Forever 21, $7
ORANGE BOOTIES - GoJane, $48

 


Monday's Inspiration: Kerry Washington

I was thrilled when I saw the picture Two Birds decided to use for "Inspiration Monday."  Kerry Washington's outfit reminded me of this Collective Concepts tunic I just thrifted at GW the previous week for $5.  And I get to wear my fabulous JC knock off orange booties!

Pigtails tells Bucket to "Go Sleep!"

Even though it's the beginning of the week, somehow I'm still tired.  We really ought to have three day weekends all the time so Monday could be the recovery day and I could "go sleep."

Really love how you recreated the look! Kerry's outfit is great and I love those bright shoes. So glad that you finally got to share these fabulous JC look-a-likes here on the blog. I really love them and they add a great pop of color. Adorable outfit, Claire! Hope you are able to get some rest this week!

Ooooh, Niiiiiceeeeee booties!!!!!
Love it! This is a great interpretation- the top with its studs and the accessories totally evoke her dress!! I am afraid my interpretation wasn't so good!

Let me tell ya, technically I do have three day weekends and I'm still exhausted. It's pathetic.

Every time I say I'm tired, my daughter offers to "set" me to bed. It's really pretty hysterical. :)

Maiken said...

you totally nailed that outfit! very chic and at the same time kind of rock'n'roll as well ;)
btw, I know that feeling when you're so tired after the weekend because you have worked so hard! typical me..

Shea said...

Wow I'm so impressed with this inspiration Monday look--it is what I wish I would have put together! I didn't join in today because I have nothing resembling that awesome dress, but that shirt echos the style perfectly!

Rebecca said...

Those booties are really fun. I have been trying to justify buying Litas to myself.

Terri said...

Your shoes MAKE this look--an excellent take on the inspiration. I wish you could go sleep too. My memory of my days of young motherhood is that the first year always felt like one long dream.

Shon said...

So cute! I really love Kerry Washington and feel like she does not get her proper credit! Your baby boy is getting so big!! They grow so fast don't they? Ok, go take a nap now! LOL
