Inspiration Monday: Reese Witherspoon

Every time I hear Reese Witherspoon’s name I think of that stupid joke (and I love me a good stupid joke, I can’t lie):

“Did you hear about that actress who stabbed herself!? It was just on the news! Reese… uh… what’s her name…”
“Witherspoon!?”
“No, with a knife.”

Hahaha!  Cracks me up every time!  Hey now, don’t judge!

Anyway, today’s Two Birds Inspiration Monday look was this lovely one from Reese Witherspoon.

A lovely striped dress, neutral flats, a big bag, and a comfy cardigan.  What’s not to like?  The inspiration outfit was really easy to get inspiration from, actually.  So much so that I actually had a tough time deciding what to wear this morning!  But, in the end, I decided on this…

I went with an A-lined striped dress, which mixes large and small stripes on varying angles and has lace at the top.  I picked it up at the end of last summer at TJ Maxx.  Over it, I put a very straight, longer cardigan that belonged to my grandma.  I love the unique texture in it created by the criss-crossed horizontal and vertical lines (though it’s kind of hard to see… sorry!).  Nn my feet, I’ve got my Carlos Santana wedges, a Goodwill find!  I added a dainty star necklace, because my tooth necklaces just didn’t look right with this.  I’m in glasses today, otherwise I’d have sported some big sunnies too.  I left my purse in the car when I snapped these pics, but it is pretty big as well, I promise, haha!

Check out today’s Two Birds Inspiration Monday post, where Nora and Megan show off their takes on the look! You can also see some of the other participants’ take on it, as we’re all linked up.  Enjoy!
