Two Birds chose a deceptively simple look for today’s Inspiration Monday.  Black and leopard?  What could be easier?

Original Inspiration: Kate Moss

Still, I struggled with this outfit.  It’s strangely warm and rainy in Chicago today so I wanted to wear boots.  But I don’t really have a black top that I like wearing with these pants.  And my turtleneck is at the dry cleaners even if it had been cool enough to wear it.

Kate’s sweater looks as though she has a running race bib on it so I actually toyed with the joke idea of wearing one of my many race bibs for the photos.  But, this weekend was crazy with no chance to take outfit photos.  So I’m sneaking them in before work wherever I can and this AM I didn’t have the chance to take a silly photo.  So I subbed the white of the print with my new pearl necklace.

All of this to say, I love the idea of this outfit but not my execution.  But I’ll still keep playing around with it until I find something I like.  Because, again, black and leopard?  What could be easier?
