Sept 5th, A Labor (Day) of Love

Tank, black cardigan and cropped jeans.

Same look as on the left- but something is seriously wrong!

I titled this post ‘A Labor of Love’ because that is what this project has become for me! Although it’s time consuming, I’m enjoying posting everyday.  I love getting dressed every day (never thought I’d say that). This project has totally inspired me to think twice before getting dressed- and I’m enjoying looking ay my closet in a new way.

Tell me- have you been inspired? Please share!

My outfit today is simple, cropped jeans, a tan shirt and black cardigan. On the right I am showing how even this simple look can go wrong. My shirt’s neckline is too high and it is too tight (notice the tummy bulging underneath- time for more sit ups!). While the black cardigan is actually really cute- it looks strange with this neckline, adds nothing to this outfit- and appears blah. The black shoes- surely I don’t even need to explain how bad these are.

On the left I have swapped out the tight crew neck shirt for a loose fitting, longer tank. My secret with tanks is I always wear a tight tank underneath. It helps suck the tummy in, and also prevents the tank on top from appearing see through. Over the tank I am wearing a black cardigan, but this one has more interest. It is better fitting- longer, and has a cute little gather in the middle.  I also added my cute new necklace that I picked up at Forever 21 yesterday. To complete the look I am wearing my snakeskin slides. I love how this tiny bit of animal print can make the entire outfit.

A looser tank and longer cardigan fix this outfit.

Snakeskin wedge- so cute!

  1. This outfit looks great and is so versatile. I really love the little details, like the pop of snakeskin, the pretty necklace, and the flowiness of the top. Very pretty!

  2. I love that you showed two versions of this outfit!

    I’m going to run to H&M tomorrow and hope that I can find a cute tank like that tomorrow! I’m looking for some flowy basics to cover my post-baby bulge!
