inspiration monday: spy games

the inspiration
blake lively
megan bird



pants, earrings ~ F21
tank ~ Target
jacket ~ Express, thrifted
boots ~ thrifted
scarf ~ thrifted

nora bird



jacket~ H&M
scarf~ Target, gift
shirt~ Old Navy
jeans~ silence+noise, b. (a resale shop)
booties~ F21

when i walked out of my room in this outfit, henry looked up and said, "wow, mama, you really look like a spy!" to which i replied, "well maybe i am." i didn't think he believed me, but then he kept asking and trying to trick me into telling him if i really was. i told him that a spy never tells. he even told me that he was a spy, and asked if i had ever seen him at the base. i said, "nice try, buddy, but if you were really a spy, you would never actually tell me." a seven-year old can't fool a spy.

And arent all mamas spies to a degree? we always no all the ins and outs of the household and the kids lives, i think that's quite sleuth like;)xxx

  11. Too funny! It is kind of spy like - something Sarah Walker on Chuck would wear (yes I am a nerd who enjoyed that show).

    I had a little more trouble with this one, but I still submitted my outfit!

  33. I gotta admit that I just love Nora's look today
    The scarf and shoes she picked out are just too fabulous, although the fur scarf from Megan's look is pretty great too.
