inspiration monday: tulips

happy monday, all! i hope everyone enjoyed their weekends...and that you were able to spend the weekends with your kids and/or you moms! i got to do both!! sunday fun day with modelo mimosas (thanks for the idea cayla!) and my not-so-secret recipe margaritas! there are lots of wonderful moms in my family and to be able to spend time with them on mother's day is wonderful!!
on to today's inspiration. the ever-effortlessly casual nicole richie. she has such a great glam/boho/chic look....i would love to raid her closets! here is today's look:
a perfect bring-your-kid-to-the-park look. i love the florals and the denim mixed together...i decided to do a similar but also very different look. i don't own a blue denim jacket. i am not sure why (note to self next time i am thrifting!) but i do have a white one, so i went with a brighter take on nicole's look.





romper ~ F21
jacket ~ Gap, thrifted
shoes ~ $9.98 store
scarf/bracelet ~ garage sale
earrings ~ F21

happy monday, all! i can't wait to see your takes!!
xoxo,

  1. I love a white denim jacket and I like your brighter version of the look! Cute romper! There is no short supply of blue denim jackets at the thrift stores I frequent, so you should have no problem finding one. Finding a white one is a trick so that was a good thrift! Glad you had a great Mother's Day! I brought my oldest home from college Friday, so I had all three of mine home for Mother's Day so it was nice.

  2. I love your take on Nicole's look. I recently thrifted a blue denim jacket, but it was off somehow. Too boxy, maybe. Still, the local thrifts are teeming with denim jackets, so I've no doubt you'll be able to find something good.

    I love Inspiration Monday! It makes Mondays suck less. Thanks for that! :)

  8. I love your take, it's very fun and summery! I somehow love EVERYTHING Nicole Richie wears (well, once she stopped hanging around Paris Hilton - remember how terrible her style used to be?!?)

  19. Oh I really like your outfit with the white Jacket, I usually find white Jackets hard to combine, with your dress it is perfect.
    Have a good week!

  20. Hi, Good Morning a day late. I was so happy to see red and white with a nude shoe...just perfect on you and I don't own a denim jacket or a romper...how did that happen? They will be on my thrift list. I know you felt great in this outfit and comfy too. Awesome look for you. Dawn xoxo

  21. Good morning. I just wrote a nice long comment that dissappeared, so if you happen to get two, I'm sorry. You look great in the romper, and I am inspired to take a second look at that item for my own closet. Thanks for doing the challenge, it is very fun to participate.

  23. Oh, so cute! Both the inspiration and your outfit! I love rompers and bought one last summer. I ended up never wearing it but I think it might be time to break it out and try!
