Inspiration Monday – Katie Holmes

This is a great site!  Click the link below to visit them.

This week the inspiration from the Two Birds blog was Katie Holmes.  I am having so much fun doing their challenge every Monday!  Here is the photo they posted for our interpretation this week.

Mostly, I am a fan of how Katie Holmes dresses.  I think she looks great in this shot.  This ensemble was easy for me to interpret from the items laying hidden in my closet.  The problem for me this week was that I do not currently own a pair of high waisted jeans.  I like this look, and am on the hunt for the perfect pair, but I have not located them yet.  Here is what I ended up wearing.

The jeans are from Cache.  The top is Pleione, from Nordstrom, and the cardigan is Kersh Essentials (Costco?)

I like how my look turned out.  This is definitely an outfit I might have put together in my own.  The one thing I think is not realistic for me is that Katie wore flats and let her pants drag on the ground.  I do not enjoy dragging pants. 🙂  I took my shot in my blue suede flats to stay true to the look, but in reality, I probably would wear these wedges with this outfit.

Both the flats and wedges are Tory Burch.  I can’t get enough navy blue in my wardrobe, including shoes.

      I’m glad… It makes me feel so much better about all the times I have made mistakes while commenting on someone’s post! 🙂

    I agree-the pants dragging on the ground look is not for me either. I too took my picture in flats but then switched to wedges when I went out, mainly because it was raining and I hate wet cuffs!

    I love your take on Katie’s outfit-very chic and fun 🙂

    I also do not enjoy dragging pants. Why spend money on jeans that will only fray before their time? That said, high-waisted jeans are pretty much made for platforms or wedges, so I’ll reserve my HWs for equally high shoes.

    That cardigan looks perfect. Costco, you say? I didn’t know there were clothes there…

      I do find a few gems at Costco occasionally. Sometimes they suprise me with what they carry.

      The show is pretty cool. It’s worth the big crowds.

    I also don’t like dragging pants, but I want my hem just as close to the ground as it will possibly go without touching it. Ahhh, a fine line, no doubt…
    I love your take on IM using what you have. I’m with you though on the doing some shopping for some ultra high-waist pants thing…fun!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier:-)

      It is a fine line! 🙂 I even get to the point where I think I want my jean’s hems to work with all of my shoes, no matter how high they are. 😉

    I want a close up shot. Your outfit looks so cute from afar. Love Tory Burch!!!

      I know what you mean! 🙂 I had no photographer today, so I wasn’t pleased with my results either. I am a big Tory Burch fan too!

    your outfit is great, i love your jeans and the striped top. your blue tory burch shoes are so perfect.

    i totally agree…although i love my pants super long and almost dragging, i don’t actually like them dragging, nor would i wear them with flats. love your version of it…especially with the stripes.

    you don’t need the high waisted jeans you look great in your own outfit!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and your comment.
    I just had to go for heels with my look to so the wedges would be my choice.
    Am very excited about the kitchen remodel – stop by again and you can see how it all turns out!

    I love the details on the two pairs of shoes in the last picture! I also really like your shirt, it really dresses up the outfit.
