sail on

Happy Inspiration Monday!
The ladies Nora and Megan of Two Birds Boutique
 chose an outfit to inspire a personal look.
My version of the inspired look.

"Sail on down the line
'Bout a half a mile or soAnd I don't really wanna know aWhere you're goin'

Today's inspiration is:
Jessica Biel
To see what others wore, look here.

Maybe once or twice you see
Time after time I tried a toTo hold on to what we got
But now you're goin'

My lace skirt is thrifted.

And I don't mind about the things you're gonna say...
I gave all my money and my time

I think I got my necklace at the dollar store,
several years ago.

I won these boots from LuLu's  in this giveaway from Maria at Little Tree Vintage, back in May. 

I know it's a shameBut I'm givin' you back your name, yeah, yeah

Yes I'll be on my way
I won't be back to stayI guess I'll move alongI'm lookin' for a good time
My brother as an adult.

Sail on down the line

Ain't it funny how the time can go on a

Friends say they told me so

But it doesn't matter
My brother as a child.

It was plain to see that aSmall town boy like meJust a wasn't your cup of teaI was wishful thinkin'
My brother as a baby.

I gave you my heart and I tried to make you happy
And you gave me nothin' in returnYou know, it ain't so hard to say"Would you please just go away," Yeah, yeah

I've thrown away the bluesI'm tired of bein' usedI want everyone to knowI'm lookin' for a good time, good time
Oh, sail on, honeyGood times never felt so goodSail on, honeyGood times never felt so goodSail on sugarGood times never felt so good"  Sail On by The Commodores
