Like So Classy

Tuesday, January 11, 2011
This was my back-up outfit. My first outfit sucked so this is what I wore instead. I always make a back-up outfit when I have an iffy outfit. In cases like this, I almost always wear the back-up outfit...like always. And they're usually a lot better than the first. But it takes me longer to get to bed because I have to come up with TWO outfits. Life is so hard sometimes.

I'm wearing all classic pieces here since I'm so classy.

I wouldn't have minded if my bow was bigger...than my head. But that would've made it floppy. And when I think of floppy, I think of ears.

I got these earrings for $1 at a garage sale from an old lady over the summer. She had tons of jewelry but I was really poor back then so just chose two pairs of earrings. They're a little heavier than I'm used to but it's nothing like these babies.

I'm wearing a JCPenney trenchcoat (free with gift cards), vintage earrings ($1), Gap shirt ($12), secondhand Gap jeans ($9), Target clogs (gift from my in-laws), and JCPenney bag (free with gift cards).

  3. It's kind of crazy what a big difference hair makes. Your bun ties it all together, and if you'd worn your hair differently, I don't think the outfit would have been as awesome. Still awesome, but not as awesome. Yap.

  6. classy classy lady!! and i think i can totally copy this outfit. and it is a plus with the wide leg pants because of the lovely huge bandages on my foot!

  7. I believe I have those exact same jeans but in a lighter wash. And they look great on you! You just motivated me to brush off the dust bunnies from my pair (I'm not a huge jeans person) and I hope they still fit!

  31. Love this classic with a twist outfit, by twist I mean it's not a boring plain white shirt ( love the bow accent). The more I look at those Target sandals....the more I want them.

    ReplyDelete
  32. It may be "classic", but this is my fav outfit so far. And I have those same jeans. Off to find a bow blouse and trench. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. you look adorable with a bun! you have a very pretty face, and that hairstyle shows it off so nicely. And I am likeing the comeback of flared pants. You kind of master the classic work outfit thingy and still stay stylish while doing so. hurray to that.

  36. You've gotten so much wear out of those clogs - I love it! I really want a pair, but considering there's still ice on the ground, i probably wouldn't be able to wear them for a couple more weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yup - I'm definetly bookmarking this look to replicate some time in rhe future when I acquire a trench of my very own - your look is the essence of class and style! I do ADORE a bow - neck blouse!!
