Normally on Monday’s I do Inspiration Monday with Two Birds Boutique. You all know that I love to use inspiration photos to help me come up with outfits but for some reason this week’s Monday inspiration photo was just not inspiring me.  Instead I  had an outfit in my head based on a Stitch Fix blog post I saw last week. A blue dress with a white button-up shirt tied over the top? Yep, I have those pieces. And I loved that the blog post showed how to take a simple dress and layer it up to create six different outfits!

So that’s what I wore. My brain is not firing on all cylinders this morning (although, let’s be honest, when is it ever on a Monday morning) so I needed something simple. And my husband even told me that my outfit was “cute”. He couldn’t quantify it beyond that, but I’ll still take the compliment.

Also, this morning I took 9 pairs of pants to the dry cleaner. Nine! So hopefully once most of my pants are clean I’ll start wearing something other than blue again. Although, no promises.
