Florals, Take Two

Monday, February 01, 2010
I did it. Don't worry about the tights...I did laundry last night, promise. I really liked this today! I think I like this better than yesterday... Sorry the pics are so blurry - I couldn't brave the cold! It was too much for me. I'm such a wimp compared to What Would a Nerd Wear..

The hubs and I just got back from chilling with the great Melissa Esplin and her fam for brownies and chitchat. She is another level of thrifting genius. I got to see her amazing clothes and even touch some (eek! I know!!). Hopefully, her thrifting skillz will rub off on me...

  1. very cute. i never would have thought to combine florals with fishnet stockings, but they complement each other so well. i'm going to try this and hope it looks just as cute on me. ;)

  31. Love the outfit, so cute! And re: your comment, I think Jim Gaffigan is really funny too. We saw him when he was in SLC a few months ago and he was hilarious. And it has been TOO long since we've gotten together. Maybe we can hit up the Overtstock store together sometime or something?

  32. You looks so cute. The skirt looks better with the plain white tee!

    ReplyDelete
  33. haha i wear my tights over and over before i wash them! i'm gross. :) yeah i am in the U's nursing program! i'm actually in the accelerated program so i don't know either of those girls...maybe they are in the traditional one? i'm so jealous you graduate this semester, but i'll be done shortly after you in august!

  34. I love this look... the skirt is so pretty and that tights is just so fab.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Love it. And further proof that full skirts rule.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love the skirt! Styling it with the white tee was genius!

  39. I like how you mixed floral and fishnets together!

  40. i love the way the simple white and dark scarf are working with the skirt. and don't even worry about repeating clothes. i wear stuff so many times between washings. i think living in charleston is turning me into a dirty hipster. and thank you for your comment on my blog. the koalas did cheer me up a bit. if only i could have those salt and pepper shakers in real life!

  41. I like this top better with that skirt than yesterday, but I'm certainly not anyone to listen to as far as fashion goes.

    ReplyDelete
  42. You are definitely not a wimp. i would not last a week in a Utah winter. I would have been a terrible pioneer!

    I really, really like this skirt with those tights. You look so cute and fresh!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lovely outfit.

    How are you dear? Hope everything's ok:**

    ReplyDelete
  44. LOVELY outfit. the skirt and top look fabulous!
    i know what you mean - i always wear two pairs of tights on top of each other because i get cold so easily haha.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. So adorable. And I repeat things too during the week... I don't always post the results. Sometimes I'll even wear the same thing two days in a row if I felt like I didn't go out or wear it too long the day before.
