It is very unusual for me to wear a graphic tee for my OOTD, but after yesterday- I need some good vibes and good karma! More about that later…
There really isn’t anything wrong with the before look- but I like the after look better. I think the darker jacket instead of the grey cardigan adds a nice contrast- same with the darker jeans. As for my shoes- I wanted to keep with the ultra casual vibe- so I opted for these Chuck Taylors. They don’t offer a ton of arch support, but they are perfect for an easy, casual look. I do think they make my feet look huge though! Maybe I’ll go back to the slip ons?!
Now- if you’re still reading I will tell you about my day. I had a shit day yesterday, literally. The toilet in my powder room exploded- filthy water was gushing out all over the floor. My son and I grabbed as many towels as we could to mop it all up- but the water just kept coming. It was like something out of a horror movie. I finally had the sense to turn the main water off (do you know how to do that in your house? If not, learn quick!). Needless to say, I called a plumber and spent the rest of my day waiting around for him to come. Fun times. And now I have to go buy all new towels… not to mention pay a HUGE plumbing bill.
Hope you’re day is better than mine. Happy Friday!
I used to love this striped maxi dress (on the left), I used to wear it with a t shirt over the top- and thought I looked cute, until I saw this picture of myself wearing it. Yikes! First of all, it’s way too long, and the horizontal stripes on my curvy body just aren’t flattering!
The mixed up stripes on the blue and white maxi are more flattering than the stripes on the grey and white dress. It also has a looser cut, which doesn’t hug my hips as much. The denim jacket adds a nice casual touch. Roll up the sleeves & add some cute bracelets to add a little style. Swap out the Birkenstocks for cute wedges and I’m good to go!
Today’s outfit is what I consider to be the quintessential weekend look- casual jeans, comfy boots, warm and cozy sweater. This is what Fall is all about! Wish I was going to a college football game to tailgate, but instead, once again I’ll be on the sidelines at soccer! Oh well… Such is life. Luckily it’s not supposed to rain!
On the right I’m showing the sweater alone, and added my leopard flats for a bit of flair. I actually think this works, especially when you see the back of this sweater. But, since I like to add a little something to each look, on the right I have layered my denim shirt underneath, added a pearl necklace and changed my shoes for these cute booties I just picked up at Marshall’s.
Now I’m ready for running errands, sitting on the sidelines, or maybe even going out to lunch?!
Have a great day!
