On a Windy Sunday

Monday, December 20, 2010
Fact:  I hate the wind. It messes up your hair, it throws your skirt up, it gets stuff in your eyes - it's basically a girl's worst enemy (besides a frenemy a la Paris Hilton...I don't get it).

I broke one of my rules - I wore like colors together!!! You don't understand...this is a BIG DEAL. I NEVER wear like colors together in accessories. I've done it with clothes but NEVER accessories!!!! CAPS!!!!!!!!!!! I wore pink earrings, a red belt, and purple shoes. I really like how it turned out with the little bits of pops of color. If you broke a style rule this past week, link up here!

  2. I love this bag SO MUCH! I may or may not be stalking my local JC Penney's for one for myself =)even though I should be buying for others right now!!

  3. I really like your choice in accessories here. I'm not sure I would have thought to pair the purple heels with the red belt but I think it works. LOVE the pops of color.

  5. I love the accessories. I also love this skirt every time I see it on you. I should really DIY myself one sometime if I ever come across a pretty curtain material. :)

  6. Wait, it's from a CURTAIN? After you said it I could totally see it, but it's so cute, it could totally be from Anthro!

    And those shoes are utterly divine!

  7. Love this outfit. You look so chic! The pops of red/purple/pink colors are perfect. Oh yeah, and total congrats on your new job!!

  8. Wearing like colors is one of the rules that I am trying to break too...I do it occasionally in clothes but like you have never done that for accessories. Except for maybe shoes and belt. I accessorize so infrequently because I am afraid it'll inevitably clash with something else. Great job!

  11. You always make me laugh!
    I love that skirt, I can't believe it's made from a curtain! The black turtleneck makes you look so prim and proper. The red belt was a good call, you look lovely.

  12. Love this rule-breaking that's going on over here, keeping things interesting! I do that all the time, though, wear like colours together... It's not always easy but when it looks good it looks REALLY good. Like you.

  24. Wind is the absolute worst enemy! I especially when I wear my hair down, apply lip gloss, then walk outside to an insanely windy day...

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think your hair still looks great, even if it was windy. Mine would have fallen completely out haha. Love this outfit. And psh, rules are meant to be broken (well.. most fashion ones are anyway... :P)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Haha, keep braking those rules. I hate the rain; ugh. Gets you all wet, especially when it's just raining a bit.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Your outfit is sooo pretty! :D Haha I love that hair picture XD

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love your hair up! ....it really shows your beautiful jaw line (not to mention, it also showcases your earrings ;) The outfit is very chic and Hepburnish!

    ReplyDelete
  32. i love how sleek you look here! the turtleneck and hair are perfect together.
    i wish i could pinpoint more of my "rules" like you can! then i'd be breaking them as much as possible!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I absolutely love that skirt. So many other bloggers would have worn it short and full, but the full cut and longer hem is AMAZING!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ohh this outfit is lovely!
    I love the little bursts of colour

  37. Wow, I love this outfit to the core. The purple/red, the patterned skirt -- it's so festive and fun. I'm also loving your ballerina bun -- what a great remedy for wind-swept hair moments.

    ReplyDelete

  47. your satchel is ssoo gorgeous! I'm still in love with those shoes. I have berry heels on my christmas list now... :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hahahah xD I cracked up... your hair wouldn't mess up anyways in that bun, but that was soo cute!
    Btw, by like accessories do you mean like similar colors? Or you never wear the SAME color accessories, because red, pink and purple are different colors... I didn't really understand that

  50. I love everything about this outfit. You look so great in a turtleneck and a bun! I have a question about modesty for you-what about form-fitting clothing? I'm just trying to figure out the line between modest and dowdy.

  57. That's interesting... I used to do that all the time when I was younger (like colored clothes AND accessories), then I moved on and thought that was lame. I like your hair (looks like the wind didn't mess it up too much) and the pattern of your skirt!

    ReplyDelete
