When: Saturday, April 16: (This is a long post but I think it is worth it:) )
Two Bird's, a terrific pair of sisters who have a fabulous blog, inspired "Inspiration Monday's". The point of the day is to use a picture of a celebrity to inspire a look to be worn and documented by bloggers. This is my first participation in this activity and I couldn't say no. My gosh, it is GWEN STEFANI! I LOVE her. I have been following her career, music, and style for years now. Also, I love the fact that she is just a 3 years older than I am and she ROCKS her style. Gwen's son Kingston is also the same age as my son and we were pregnant at the same time. She was a style inspiration for me during my pregnancy, mainly because I was NOT fashionable during my pregnancy at all. I will have to scan some pictures sometime;)
So I have mentioned that I have placed myself on a thrift only lifestyle. I can't spend all the money I would like to spend on what I want and honestly, I have learned that if I look hard enough I can find an equivalent for my "wants" through thrifting. For this particular outfit I didn't have a plaid shirt and I thought about wearing my husband's jeans but they would have been bigger than I wanted. SO....off to the Goodwill I went.
I only had 30 minutes to shop so I was on a mission...
