Inspiration Monday

The ladies of Two Birds Blog have given us another inspiration photo for this weeks Inspiration Monday post.
This week they chose this casual outfit by Gwen Stefani. I decided that this week I would take the outfit a little less literally as it was a fairly easy outfit to replicate.
So I ended up with this:
I changed up the heels for flats as heels would not have been practical for the outing this outfit was used for, a simple late night backyard BBQ, and I added the white top so I didn't get too old later in the evening.
Shirt: Spydenim Mens Wear
Jeans: Dorothy Perkins
Top: Tommy Hilfiger
Shoes: Converse from China
Glasses: Magazine Freebies
So I kept the check shirt, dark jeans, oversized animal print sun glasses and bright red lippy, so I think I did quite well and put my own comfortable twist on it!

  6. I agree that it was fun to see you use this look for a casual event. I like how you put on the lipstick too. That is such an important part of how it was originally styled, and it looks good with your version. :)

  12. It's funny. Gwen looks comfortable in that outfit. You do, too. However, to me jeans are never a synonym of comfort, haha. I guess I nned to buy bigger jeans, hehe.

    Have a great week! ;) Hugs!

  13. Great recreation! I would have swapped the high heels for flats too, as we all know what happens to high heels on soft grounds like grass... Yikes! :-)
