Inspiration Monday: Sarah Jessica Parker

Happy President's Day and it's almost the end of Monday and we have enjoyed our long weekend very much. We went up skiing again even though the weather was very warm, the snow was melting and it was turning into mush. I crashed into a father and his very young toddler - they were standing in the middle of a wide space - and I had to run into them! Fortunately, the only one who suffered any form of pain was me. I cannot wait till I start skiing on the harder slopes, because I find that people congregate in groups to chat or have their lessons. It is terrifying because I am not good at turning yet so I pray every time I go down so I do not hit anyone. 

On to Inspiration Monday - we have Sarah Jessica Parker as an inspiration today. I love SJP and she is so daring with her colours and style; I would love to morph more into the way she dresses one day!

I love everything about this - her use of colours. I never would have thought of pairing two colours from the same family but it works very effectively. The red bag adds a nice contrast to the blue and she wears a fairly neutral pair of shoes.

I have a blue dress in this shade but I really lack sweaters or cardigans! (Must thrift for more! Any excuse will do!) So I looked at what I had in my closet and I do have a pink dress which I bought off Etsy and never worn before, because the weather has been too cold.

I paired it with a red sweater, seeing that pink was from the same family of colours, and this was probably the only red sweater I had, out of my 4 or 5 sweaters I own. It is made of possum hair, yes, you heard me right! I bought this from Australia when I was back two summers ago. 

It was too cold for me to go out without any sort of leggings or stockings - but hey, it's all in the name of blogging that I do this. :)

If you know me well enough, you would probably bolted upright on your chair very because I am not a girly sort of girl - so this dress is really not something I would normally wear. I was so taken with the softness of it when I saw it on Pinterest one day and spent days, weeks thinking about it. It was shipped from Bangkok so there was no way of knowing if it would even fit me, as the sizes are different there. I am happy to say that it did.

Hair clip with flowers, bought for RM3 in Malaysia (less than US$1)

 I found these shoes at TJ Maxx this week for $29. I left the size tags on because at first I was unsure if I would return them. They are a keeper!

Gold clutch: Bought through Ideeli for $29

Hope every one of you have a good week ahead. Linking up with Inspiration Monday over at Two Birds.

    1. Thanks, it was fun wearing it, even though it was for a few moments! Can't wait for the weather to get warmer though!

  2. I think you look super gorgeous in this red monochrome outfit. The color totally flatters your skin. And I like that dress especially the ruffles at the neckline.


  3. Oh what a beautiful outfit! SO dreamy and romantic!

    1. It is a girly girl sort of dress. Thanks for visiting and taking the time to leave a comment!
