Leather shorts have I not.

Today is MONDAY, which means my return to the blog-o-sphere is JUST in time for Two Birds' Inspiration Monday!  This week's challenge is a doozy, featuring the lovely Miss Ashlee Simpson in red (LEATHER) shorts, a flowing blouse, and boots.  She can rock this look like no what's a girl like me to do?
Ashlee Simpson, being awesome.
As I mentioned in my last post...I hate shorts.  Consequently I own precious few, and I DEFINITELY don't own any RED shorts.  So today I opted for my favorite pair of shorts (which featured in yesterday's post, unfortunately) and a loose blouse, figuring I could at least stick with the blouse+shorts theme.  And of course, as a hats-off to Miss Simpson, I untucked one side of the blouse. ;)



What I'm Wearing:
Blouse:  Anne Klein 2 (thrifted)  |  Shorts: Lee "One True Fit" (thrifted) |  Belt: Thrifted  |  Boots: Tractor Supply Company  |  Glasses:  Gucci knock-offs (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)  |  Necklace: Gift

Ashlee's outfit has the whole "night out on the town" vibe going on.  Mine is a bit more laid back... Maybe it's time to go shopping for a pair of red shorts?  DARE I try to pull off THAT look?  Hm.

Today kicks off my first day of "vacay", and I will be spending it working on my research project from my trip last summer to Thailand.  It's hard to believe that last year, at this time, I was exploring Chiang Mai...

I miss Thailand.
