Hooray! It’s Friday! As indicated by my level of dishevelment in these photos, this week has been rough. Let’s just say that an interdisciplinary project makes for lots e-mails…and lots of stress.
As for this outfit, I think I liked it in theory better than in reality. There’s just a bit too much fabric in the top, which accounts for the weird way it drapes on me in these photos (that, and I didn’t look in the mirror before I took photos…). I’m also not sold on the detail on the sleeves. I know I’m boring–but I just like things to be plain sometimes. Harumph.
I’ve always known that I’m quite fair, but seeing pictures of myself on a regular basis here on the blog reinforces the notion. My skin tone pretty much blends in with the ivory top I’m wearing in these pictures. Granted, I was pretty sick at the time, but it just makes me realize that I need to step up my blush game!
Despite the fact that this outfit emphasizes my status as a pasty princess, I still like it. There’s something about the contrast of distressed jeans with the feminine lace + pearls that really strikes my fancy.
In light of my paleness problem, what’s your favorite blush? I’m always looking for new ones to try…
It’s been a while since my last post–we can thank a wicked cold for that. I don’t get sick very often, but I always seem to get one bad bout with a stuffy nose every year to keep me humble. Last week marked my annual feel-cruddy event. As you might imagine, I didn’t feel much like showering, much less taking outfit photos or blogging last week.
I’m feeling like a human again today, so I’ll share an outfit I’ve actually worn several times over the past month or so.
It’s hard to tell in these photos, but this ivory peplum top has little gold flecks mixed into the ponte material. I always thought that aspect made it appropriate only for special occasions, but I’ve decided to embrace the glitter and just wear it as an everyday top. A little glitter never hurt anyone, right?
Today’s outfit is another one that was a long time coming. This pin has been hanging out on my fashion inspiration board for months now. I really wanted to wear it right away, but the whole pregnancy thing happened, and then it seemed weird to wear a floral scarf in the middle of December.
Now that spring is on the horizon, I’ve decided to bust out the florals, and in turn, finally re-create the aforementioned pin. I liked this look so much that I’ve worn it a few times now–it’s perfect for the in-between temperatures we’ve been having, and it’s comfy!
