inspiration monday: brooklyn brooklyn take me in

i wonder if you all love the avett brothers as much as i do. the other day, i was youtubing them (is that a verb, now?) because i have a friend who had never heard of them. i was watching them play this song live, and i don't know if it was the lack of sleep, the beers i consumed the night before, or the fact that i think skinny musicians are wicked sexy (no i don't normally talk like a bostonian, but i think it's fitting right now)...but anyways, i fell a little in love with the lead singer. like johnny depp in love. i do that sometimes..i fall in love with musicians and movie stars. i'm like a 10-year old. pathetic, i know. remind me sometime to tell you about the time i met a "star" in new your city. it was months before i got over him.

anyways, this whole dialogue came about because when i hear our inspiration's name for today (brooklyn decker), i always think of this song (i and love and you for those who didn't click on the link above). here she is in all of her short-skirt glory.


and here are the bird-takes.

megan bird




skirt ~ target
shirt ~ banana republic, thrifted

load the car and write the note.

  2. Both of you are gorgeous and I envy your ability to look so fabulous. Megan, your 4th pose is stunningly fabu. and Nora your 1st one is awesomely fabu...I am running out of adjectives for you two beauty birds. Fantastic look on both of you. I have to get my hair done today before I put my outfit together. The salt water and sun did a number on it. Have a great Monday beautiful birds. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes xoxo

  4. I've been following you ladies for a couple weeks but this is the first time I've been able to pull off the Monday inspiration. Cute idea though, I just need to expand my wardrobe apparently ;)

  5. Um Avett brothers are my favorite! My brother got me their CD for my birthday and I've been listening to it non-stop! I googled their tour and the closest they will come to us is Chicago. Road trip? Love both of your outfits as always :)

  6. Nora, I love your skirt. Everyone seems to have a similar one so it looks like I need to go shopping! Megan, I love that you did the look with shorts. Nice. This was a fun one this week and I really like the look I ended up with and as usual it wasn't something I would have thought of on my own. I love how this weekly challenge opens up your options!

  8. I am so in love with the Avett Brothers. I was so disappointed I didn't get to go home for the Beale St. Festival, because they were one of the main acts I wanted to see. I may go see them in Chicago in September.

  9. Megan, it is hysterical that we are wearing the almost exact same skirt for this post:) Great minds think alike! You look fantastic!

    Sincerely,

    Julie

    Nora, I have a pair of shorts really similar to the one's that you are wearing! Thanks for some inspiration on how to wear them with a belt and long sleeved shirt! I am so excited to try this out. You look fabulous!

    Sincerely,

    Julie

  11. You both look awesome. I've never heard of the Avett Brothers, but I'll check them out.

  12. I love the Avett Brothers too! Apparently they just came to Denver and I totally missed out. I have a crush on the lead singer from Old Crow Medicine Show (you should check them out, they are very bluegrass but oh so much fun)

  13. are we talking metallic shorts over here? you birds are so smokin'!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Metallic shorts and mini minis! I love it -- I wish I could have been as bold as you ladies in my version of this look, but alas I have 18 year olds to teach and have to keep it tame...

  15. Love both looks - those blue/chambray shirts somehow good with everything! I LOVE those sparkly shorts!

  16. You both look so great! I've been away from home 11 hours a day, if I find a moment I still do have a few days for some photos.

  17. You both girlis look great!!

  18. Your family has the great legs gene, huh? Both of you look fantastic! I like your looks better than Brooklyn's - I fear her petal hem is a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen.

  19. You both look so cute (and sexy). I love that lace skirt with denim shirt combo. I think though the glittery shorts more resemble the inspiration photo.
    Thanks for hosting such a fun challenge.

  20. The answer is YES, I love the Avett Bros as much as you do! They are absolutely amazing. I have a huge crush on the Seth, the other brother. If you haven't seen them live, I highly suggest it- they put on a wild live show!
    ps. Both of you birds looks fab!

  21. I totally have that Target skirt but because I'm petite, it's not so short on me hahaha :) Lookin' great! Those chambray shirts go a looong way.

  22. This was such an awesome idea! Megan's skirt is gorgeous - I love the lace! And Nora has the Brooklyn hair down perfectly! Love it.
