Closest to a ballerina I'll ever be

Tuesday, March 15, 2011
How do you like my new layout? I LOVE IT. OMG. I'M SO AMAZING. I got bored with my other layout and just had an uncontrollable itch to fix it up that I skipped the gym again! My priorities are obviously dead on.

I felt like a ballerina in this outfit. I just wanted to twirl and spin and skip...and I did...in my head. Speaking of ballerinas, I just bought this shirt and these flats over the weekend along with my bf jeans. I love shirts with longer sleeves. They camouflage my buff upper arms so well. And I'm sure whoever invented cap sleeves was NOT a woman...at least not a woman who was insecure about her upper arms...like the rest of us...right?...or is that just me...probably just me.

I am still accepting questions for my second Q&A sesh. Ask away here before another year passes or I don't blog anymore and/or you never see me again.

I'm wearing an H&M white shirt ($10), Forever 21 black pleated skirt (gift from my sister-in-law - buy similar!), handmade flower necklace worn as a belt ($3), and H&M black flats ($13) with a JCPenney bag (free with gift cards).

  2. I love your belt, or necklace, or beltlace. I like 3/4 length sleeves. They are my favorite. I like the new layout, it feels less cluttered, and clean. Not that it was ever dirty or anything.

  3. VERY cute outfit. Adore the yellow and black together. That skirt is just awesome times ten! And yes, the new layout is lovely.

    As for cap sleeves, I confess, I like them. Longer sleeves annoy me because I think they make my arms look short. Perhaps what we women all have in common is insecurities about our arms in general. ;-)

    much love: kimberellie (with a baby in her belly)

  7. I used to love cap sleeves! Now I'm moving towards longer sleeves, but I have nearly all my summer t-shirts with cap sleeves! Boo.

  8. I love this outfit - especially the skirt - I've been eying chiffon skirts lately, and I think I'll add the one you're wearing to my wishlist, haha. I also love the necklace worn as a belt, it really brightens it up. :)

    (Cute layout, btw!)

  15. Love the look! And LOVE your belt.

  16. Cap sleeves=el diablo. It was probably a man that invented them. Just like stirrup pants, because no one over a size 0 would ever invent something like that.
    I love the simple, freshness of this outfit. Just gorgeous.

  17. This is a really good look. You look like you're glowing. I really love that skirt. Also, I like the blog layout. It looks great.

  18. hahaha I totally feel ya on the upper arm issues. When I look at myself in the mirror, it is obvious that my shoulders extend faaar beyond my hips. I'm an inverted triangle. I don't even swim, how does that happen?! Ugh. The universe has yet to make a t-shirt that I like...though Gap has come pretty close!

  19. nice skirt!
    you look so pretty <3

  20. You know I love this, from head to toe. I love minimalism.

  21. I love the new layout! And also how you worked the flower necklace into a belt - this outfit looks great!

  22. I totally agree about longer sleeves. Though there is that dreaded length between cap and the length of your sleeves that just looks a little awkward. But my personal favorite has always been elbow-length. Just so feminine and forgiving.

    I wish you had posted a pic of you twirling. Woulda been so fun! ;)

  23. I love the new layout. And that skirt is to die for. I need one!. I feel exactly the same way about capped sleeves. I have buffy buff upper arms, and if I gain a pound it goes right there. Since us mormon girls stay away from sleeveless, I stalk these shirts with longer sleeves. Love it.

  24. Love the new layout and LOVE the skirt! Any ya, I'm totally with you on the sleeves. Makes no sense!

  27. Adorbs! the outfit... the layout too. Though I'm trying not to get bored with my layout because I have absolutely not graphic design talents so that means finding someone to change it up... and that's just stressful.

    I think the longer sleeves look more professional too.

  28. i really love the outfit. so fresh and springy. i also enjoy the new layout, looks good. and for reals about cap sleeves. they make me so self conscious, i like a good sleeve length.
    oh and the yellow belt/flower/genius/necklace thing is adorable looks great as a belt.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yes! definitely loving the new layout!! And also really love the ballerina-esque outfit. The skirt is gorgeous.

  30. YAY! NEW LAYOUT! So pretty... I'm so jealous of your HTML skills.

    And in total agreement... cap sleeves are the devil. But so princess-y and cute. Damn upper arms! Why must you be so hard to tone!??!

  31. So pretty outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Your waist looks super-duper tiny in these pictures! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Love the new layout, and LOVE how you used the necklace as a belt, so perfect!

  34. Looove the new layout! Pops of color is the way to go...and turquoise, my fav. ;)

  35. Do it... I dare you... Make it tough with a moto jacket or hard jewelry.

    ReplyDelete
  36. So do mine! I'm realizing my shoulders aren't getting any slimmer...

    ReplyDelete
  37. Me too! I'm just waiting for someone to exploit this longer-sleeve idea to us Mormons... I'm surprised Shade or DownEast hasn't picked it up yet.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I know, right? Even when I "work out" my arms they just seem to get bigger and not slimmer...

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yay! Mission accomplished. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Cap sleeves are truly horrible - especially if one has broad shoulders and arm muscles/flab (no matter how hard I work out its never smaller, just firmer or softer. ick.)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ahh!! Me too! I hate arms! Okay, that's not true.

    ReplyDelete
  42. love the skirt and the new lay out, much more appealing and easy to navigate.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Cap sleeves are not my friend, though I wear them anyways sometimes. I'm in love with this look, I looooove twirling and being girly and pretty. so. much. fun. !

  46. Great twist on the ballerina outfit. I love all the different ways you wear the flower sash, but this might be my fav!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Well, buff upper arms aside, I prefer women's tops that have sleeves like what you're wearing. I bought my wife a woman's t-shirt on-line and was surprised to see it had almost no sleeves--I didn't like it. I thought all t-shirts were like the men's variety.

    BTW, having you as an on-line friend is the closest to a ballerina I'll ever be!!! =)

  48. OMGosh! You're adorable! I love it! I need to follow you because I clearly need some fashion assistance.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I hate hate hate cap sleeves!! Such an unflattering length of sleeve unless you have arms that are amazing...

    I love feeling like a ballerina!

  52. This is so super-adorably cute. I LOVE the necklace-turned-belt!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I have a skirt like this...but I've not worn it yet. I think you've given me an idea or two.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Swooning over the skirt. And the flower belt is perfection!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Cute outfit! I love that skirt, perfect for twirling haha No, I'm with you cap sleeves are terrible, so not flattering. Who wants a shirt that cuts you off at your thickest point?

    ReplyDelete
  56. You look so beautiful!! I absolutely looooove that belt!! Will definitely try to do one for myself... ;)

  57. I love your new design! I'm launching mine today, hopefully!
