April 4th, Too Much Beige?

 I know, I know, a few weeks ago I said to dress in all one color to look taller (and thinner)- but I fear I may have steered you wrong!

Take today’s outfit for instance, I like it- but is there such a thing as as too much beige? It seems a little boring…

Maybe the problem is the cropped pants paired with a grandpa sweater. I think it  makes my legs look really short.

The length of the sweater is almost the same as the length of the pants- so the proportions are wrong.

As you can see on the left, the dark skinny jeans make my legs look much longer- especially paired with this dark plum tank. The dark solid under the cardigan gives the illusion of a long vertical line- and then the cardigan and necklace add interest.

To add even more personality- I’ve got on my leopard ballet flats. I’m always a fan of a little leopard in an outfit! 🙂

As I’m writing this- the look on the right is sort of growing on me… maybe it’s not as awful as I originally thought?! What do you think? Right or left, or both? (Or neither- gasp!)

It’s Wednesday, so I linked up with Pleated Poppy– today she is showing pictures of 5 parties she has thrown over the years. Man, this gal is so creative and she totally inspires me!
