inspiration monday: alright alright alright

the inspiration
eva mendes
megan bird



dress ~ F21
shirt ~ thrifted
shoes ~ Target
earrings ~ Dots
sunglasses ~ garage sale

nora bird



dress~ H&M, from megan
sweater~ vintage, Wild Riffle sale
shoes~ F21


a group of gals and i went to go see Magic Mike on saturday night. it was pretty amazing ~ and by amazing i mean matt bomer is in it. and as long as i get to see matt bomer every once in a while, i'm happy. i'm not a huge fan of channing tatum ~ he's kind of meaty and a little too muscly for my taste. but that boy can dance. the rest of the guys are just ok for me, too (except that wrestler who is in it...he's just a plain meat head). the other lead, alex pettyfer, is pretty cute, but he looks a lot like my brother-in-law, so i had that in my head the whole time i was watching the movie. kind of weird.

the funniest was matthew mcconaughey. we were all laughing that he pretty much just played himself the whole movie. because i truly believe that in real life, matthew probably wears short bike shorts and cropped skin-tight yellow tees. he also probably wears a tasseled thong...but we will never know. i'm pretty sure he had his agent write it into his contract that he got to play the bongos as a stipulation to him playing the role. and about four or more times in the movie, he used his old dazed and confused line, "alright alright alright". like i said i'm pretty sure he just played himself. but himself was perfect for this role, so it worked.

have you seen the movie? do you want to? i recommend it, but mainly for the comedic factor (oh and the sweaty man dancing). and matt bomer. because if you don't know who he is, you need to find out.

alright alright alright.
xoxo,
two birds

  2. Gah - I love polka dots and stripes, and they're so perfect on you here Megan! I don't know if I could get into that movie. I'm not a big fan of overly muscled guys either. But other people sure have been getting excited about seeing it.:)

  4. THANK YOU! I'm so glad I'm not the only woman in the world who's not a Channing Tatum fan.

    You ladies look great as usual! I'll have to link up later after I actually shower and get dressed for the day.

  5. You both look smashing! Sadly, it was way too cold for bare legs and wedges here today.

  6. I'm SO excited to see Magic Mike. And, ok, I know exactly what you mean about Channing and I used to not care for him. BUT then I saw him in 21 Jump Street and on SNL and he was HILARIOUS. Seriously, I saw a whole new down-to-earth side of him and loved it. He did a McConaughey impersonation on SNL and it was dead on and sooo funny - worth looking up because you will like him more because of it :D

  9. It was so fun seeing the movie with you both! I agree with Megan bout Channing Tatum, he is so funny and charming he totally won me over. Plus, he was in She's the Man which is one of my favorite movies :)

  10. I've been wanting to see Magic Mike, mostly for the funny element/ Matthew Mcconaughey being himself. Love both of your interpretations of this weeks inspiration.

  11. I would choose your versions over Eva's ;) I love the take you both took on it! I haven't seen Magic Mike, but I feel like I've already watched it with everyone's recaps ;)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Megan, I love how you included pattern mixing in your look, so adorable! And Nora I think you're officially the most stylish pregnant woman! I actually don't really have any desire to see Magic Mike...I'm probably one of the few females on the planet to say that, but Channing Tatum doesn't really do it for me either.

  16. hahaha dying over the "I'm pretty sure he played himself" part. I haven't seen the movie, but that's exactly how I picture him to be in real life too. lol.

    You guys both look stylish and chic but the pattern mixing in megan's outfit is making me want to raid her closet!

  18. Eva Mendes is such a doll...great inspiration. And you both totally rocked it! Knotted tops are one of my fav style options.

  19. Hi ladies if has been a while since I commented! Nora, I love your combination, stripes, dots and orange are my very favorite and you pulled the pattern mixing off wonderfully. Megan your outfit... I took a second/third look. You have such gorgeous legs that go on forever! Where have you been hiding them? This length of skirt suits you so well.

  29. I so want to see that movie. I have gone numerous times to see live chippendale like shows and had a blast but now I think I might just stick to the movies...maybe. Anyway, I really like the choice again this week. Easy and comfy. Megan, love the mix of vibrant, lovely dots, and stripes. You look extra hot today! Nora, I can't understand how your legs stayed so thin and your weight is only in your belly and boobs...??? You look sexy...(is that appropriate to say?) I think it absolutely is appropriate. Love the print on your dress and cute poses. Thanks for hosting...dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  37. Oh my goodness. The first time I went to see male strippers (I mean the only time) one of them totally looked like my little brother and I had to tell him to go away.

  38. Y'all look super cute & summery!

    Matt Bomer is pretty much the ONLY reason I want to see Magic Mike...the still of him in about half a Naval uniform pretty much gets my motor running on overdrive...
