This is just one of those outfits that makes you feel like a million bucks... even if the wind is working against you. Blowing your hair every which way (bangs + wind = the worst) and giving you silly outtakes like the one seen below. Awkwardly grabbing my own boob in public, or in the process of pulling my sweater back in place? That's for you to decide.


Sorry, I had to include that. I wasn't expecting it so when I was scrolling through my photos I nearly had water come out my nose. I always think to myself that I'd like to share outtakes from time to time, but they get buried, and I eventually forget about them. Sometimes I feel like such a dork sharing all these posed photos of myself. I try to be "natural" but of course, in front of the camera, I try to stand a little straighter, make sure my hair is in place, and my clothes are sitting perfectly. I'm a little bit more disheveled than that. We all are. So in the future? More outtakes! I'll save them up and even put them in a post of their own.

Hope you're having a lovely Wednesday!
xoxo

  3. I adore your cropped cardigan! And well, everything else about your outfit for that matter. Also, totally feel your pain about the wind/bangs things.

  4. Mix and match those prints, girl. Love it. Also I also love your hair, but I'm especially digging the current color combo you've got going on. 💜💙

    1. Thanks, Jordyn! It's really just a transition color while I work on my next color but it did turn out pretty excellent. ;)

  8. Pattern clashing at its best. Whenever I wear midi skirts, I feel like I look like an old woman, but you really pull them off.

    1. I feel like there is a trick to them that I haven't quite identified yet but I know what you mean. Sometimes I put them on and they feel so awkward but other times they look perfect!

  10. Gorgeous! I love your hair and the outfit; very cute!
    Maybe the pics are deceiving, but it looks almost like spring there! It's probably like where I am in Michigan, where it keeps going back and forth between all the snow melting, with a few "warm" days, and then getting dumped on again. haha, got majorly dumped on yesterday, and now the sun's out! woo!

    1. Pictures are definitely deceiving. This is the weirdest winter ever. We'll have 50/60 degree days then the next it's snowing. This was one of those 50 degree days, the sunshine makes it feel so much nicer though.

  12. I love the stripes and polka dots mix! It works really well with this outfit. I love it when people post their outtakes, they're so entertaining. I need to see how many I can dig up, I'm sure I have plenty of ridiculous ones to share.

  13. I love seeing a good outtake shot! I always mean to share some of my own and forget to put the post together. Or maybe I'm intimidated by how long it would take to sift through my pictures to find the best one.

    Anyway, this outfit is just perfect. I love the mix of pattern and your wonderfully full polka dot skirt. I need one like that!
