inspiration monday-short shorts and shine

Blouse- Thrifted; Tank Top- Smart Set; Shorts- Old Navy; Shoes- Charlotte Russe; Necklace- The Bay; Purse (used as a clutch)- Aldo; Nail Polish- Violet by Revlon

This is my first time linking up to Inspiration Monday over at two birds, where they post a weekly picture of a celebrity and our job is to re-create the look from our wardrobe.  Today's inspiration is Olivia Palermo, fashionista and villain extraordinaire from the reality shows The City.  She is one of my celeb style icons and I absolutely love her colourful, patterned blazer and bejewelled shorts.  Taking a quick scan of my blazers, I noticed that they are all neutrals (note to self: must buy a fun blazer) so I decided to swap for a patterned blouse, black short shorts (so short they are never worn outside the house for fear of ) and I wore my sequined Charlotte Russe booties for some shine.  

Add a conniving smirk, toothpick legs and wads of cash and I could basically be Olivia's twin!

  19. You look better than she does. I love that you chose a shirt instead of a blazer. The fabric flows better and it really mimics the blazer well.
