Florals in the Wind

Sunday, January 31, 2010
Thank you for all your comments and suggestions! It seemed like there were two sides:  (1) if you didn't like or feel good about your outfit, you didn't post it or (2) you posted it anyway as a learning experience. For me, I don't post it if I don't feel good about it when first putting the outfit on. A few of you have mentioned figuring out what is wrong with it first and then fixing it the next time you wear a similar outfit, which I think is a great idea.

The outfit from my last post made me feel frumpy and disheveled by the end of the day instead of feeling put together like I did in the morning. I felt great in my outfit from today but the picture didn't quite document that and that's okay. (I wish I had fixed my shirt first.)

Is it weird if I wore this floral skirt again tomorrow? I just love it so much!

  5. Well, the skirt looks wonderful and you'll be with different people tomorrow, so I don't think it would be weird!

    Sorry to hear about that bee ruining your fun on the swings! That was such bad luck to swing into a bee as it was flying. I've had that kind of luck too! I hope you haven't been stung very often since then. Have a great week! =)

  9. quite possibly one of my FAVORITE outfits of yours! it looks so great, and did you cut more bangs or am I dumb? your hair looks awesome too. I always struggle with my hair in pictures so I'm always envious of those who have perfect hair :)

    beautiful skirt! i totally support wearing things multiple days in a row.

  12. I think we might live in the same neighborhood! Have recently found your blog and love a fashion blogger in my own town! I'm a PhD student at the U and I love your on campus fashion photos!

  13. love you skirt, i had my eye on it around christmas but i totally forgot about it! it looks great on you.

  14. You are the artist and stylist of your life. If you want to wear that skirt every day, it's OK. You are in charge of you!

    We're just along for the ride!

  15. I love love LOVE this outfit. I'm slightly obsessed with pink and grey together and that floral skirt is gorgeous!

  17. I think this outfit and the one you were previously questioning are cute - I'm a sucker for patterned tights and scarves. I like how the patterned tights you're wearing today add a modern look to the floral skirt without clashing against it.

    On the whole, as long as I have time to photograph my outfit, I post it even if I'm not crazy about it. I'm (obviously) not a high fashion role model - I'm just trying to figure out what works & doesn't work on my body, and the failures or simply not-so-great outfits are part of that too.

    Plus, if I know I'm going to be uploading a picture of what I wear, it's additional accountability to make sure I feel polished before I head out the door.

  18. I totally am in love with your entire look. You look chic, modern, pretty and casual all at the same time.

    I'm totally one of those folks who don't post my major fashion fails (heck, I've deleted whole posts are making them live when I regret an outfit choice) - but think it's important to be able to grow and learn from former fashion mishaps.

  19. I love this outfit -- it's so cheerful! And I think it would be cute if you wore the skirt again soon -- it's pretty.

    I have to say again how much I love your new header. You look like you're looking down at all your posts! :)

  20. you're shoes are so gorgeous and i adore that skirt! the length is perfect as well as the floral print. it's definitely not weird to wear a skirt THIS gorgeous twice in a row. i probably would too :P

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like your skirt! I must say this outfit looks much lighter and fun, where your other one looked a little dreary. :) Looking good!

    ReplyDelete
  22. So pretty! The ruffle top is such a lovely colour!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I really like the mix of colors. The gray, pink, and floral make me think of spring!

    I'd say wear it again! :)

  33. I really like the feminine vibe of this outfit ;) the colors work so well together, I love that you picked the pink hue and didn't do what most people would and pair it with either a neutral or the dominant color in the skirt.
