Another Monday is here and almost gone. We had a great time at the cabin this weekend.
Our friends Paul and Monica have a cottage right on the lake and it was our annual "friends weekend" We have known all of these people for 25 or more years. There are definately some characters in our group. I hate to say I'm definitely one of them!
When you know people that long you know the good, the bad and the ugly about each of them.
The good is enough to cancel out the ugly, and sometimes the bad is what makes them good.
I'm always so wiped out on Monday's. We stay at the cabin and get up super early to make the drive back in for work.
So on Monday's I always look forward to hanging out in my fluffy pants and linking up with Two Birds @ http://twobirdsboutique.blogspot.com/ for Inspiration Monday,
and Patti @ http://notdeadyetstyle.blogspot.com/ for Visible Monday.
Adding Meet Virginia Design for Thriftaholics weekly http://www.meetvirginiadesign.com/
Adding Spunky Chateau which is another of my favorite link ups http://spunkychateau.blogspot.com/
And Color Blind for Thrifters Anonymous This is a new one so I'm excited http://shanaandadam.blogspot.com/
I have to add a little note here. This is the first time I've linked up with 5 blogs from one post.
I think I should be awarded blogging thrifter of the year!
Here is my Two Birds inspiration, the beautiful Olivia Wilde. I don't really wear stripes so I focused on the maxi dress and leather jacket. I'm pleased with the look. I think you can dress just as edgy as the younger chickies, but gussy it up in a Silverstyle way.
I have been wanting to try this maxi out. I have a wedding in the spring at the Palmer House in Chicago. It's a pretty upscale place and I will totally be freaking out on what to wear. I would definitely wear some sparkly sandles............Oh, look where I'm going with this, summer isn't over and I'm worried about what I'm going to wear to a wedding next May! I think I need to get another hobby!
So rock on my little bloggie buddies and check out the other entries for their take on their look and their inspiration.
Maxi GW 2.50 Newport News (wondering if I should take it in)
Jacket quite a few years old but I think it was 75.00 or 100.00 at a local dept. store
Shoes Target clearance around 20.00
