Today is Inspiration Monday over at Two Birds.  I definitely needed some inspiration today.  I was dragging.  So I was pleased when the inspiration photo popped up with this:

Ashlee Simpson

Hey, I thought.  I’ve pants that are the same color.  And I’ve got several white button down tops.

But then when I was standing in my closet (stay tuned tomorrow for a closet tour!) debating which white button down top to wear this polka dot top jumped out at me.  Ashlee’s top is a more flow-y and blousy than any of my more structured white button downs so I thought the billowiness of this polka dot top was more appropriate.

Turns out I really like this outfit!  And the best part?  I’m actually working from home today so I’ll be able to wear this into the office another day and no one will be the wiser!  Except you all.  And you won’t tell, right?
