Inspiration Monday: Eva Mendes

When I saw Two Bird's pick for Inspiration Monday happened to be Eva Mendes, I had to sigh. It's simpler to sigh than to say, "If only my curves looked like hers, my skin mirrored her beautiful complexion and my husband looked like Ryan Gosling - oops did I just say that out loud?"  Like I said,  it's easier to sigh. Beauties like Eva can make the simplest of outfits look chic.  She even chose a color coordinated furry companion as the perfect accessory. 

I wanted to jazz up this look in hopes that Ryan might get confused and yell, "Hey Girl" in my direction instead of Eva's. Then we'd go Notebook it up on a dock in the rain somewhere. Ahem, I don't own a brown skirt but I do have a brown dress that I threw this watercolor tee over with a white belt like Eva's.  She finished her look with a simple sandal which I mirrored with a simple shoe but in blue.  All that's missing in a furry companion or Ryan.

While I go think about my dreamboat boyfriend, check out the other blogger's takes on Eva's look over on Two Birds blog!

Lovely outfit! I love turning a dress into a skirt. The top you have on is lovely! And the necklace is super fun! I'm with you - a furry dog and Ryan? That woman is too lucky, lol!

Sigh...if only I had Ryan Gosling as a companion... but anyway, I love your interpretation! Your shirt has such a great print. I keep seeing this necklace on bloggers everywhere and I love it every time!

Great necklace. I'm really into blue this season too. I think dogs are the perfect accessory...except when they start licking strangers.
