Just because I started a blog about fashion, doesn’t mean I don’t have fashion mishap’s. Take this outfit for example. I absolutely LOVE this top. I wear it all the time, it is thread bare. This was purchased in Alaska, probably 4 years ago, on a trip to visit my daughter. I wear it in the summer without an undershirt, and of course in the winter with a shirt under it. I wear it with capri’s and usually jeans. It is, in fact, my go to shirt for traveling. It is soft and flowy and hide’s all kinds of middle area problems. BUT, something about this look just doesn’t look right. Maybe it is the pants are too dressy, maybe the top looks too long, (my legs are not really that short) or maybe I just let my love for the top blind me to it’s look. You can tell by the look on my face what I think about this outfit. It’s bright and cheery, but a hot mess. The jacket is way too short for the outfit, or the top is too long, either way it is just WRONG! This was taken the 2nd day of me starting a blog. You would have thought I would have called it quits after seeing this picture, but I’m not that bright. Lol! This outfit is however, very bright. I love the top, it is a great color and flows away from my middle. I love the scarf, it has such cute colors AND tassels. I wear these capri’s all summer long, and the blue jean espadrilles are really cute. I bought the white jean jacket from Cato’s one night when I was freezing, and I have worn it several times. However, all the combined looks are just a fail….I think I was going for the whole boho look here. And once again, I like all the individual pieces, but they just lose something when put together. The vest is reversible, and has great summer colors. The top is a really pretty violet color, maybe sleeves would have helped. The jeans are rolled up, but maybe I should have left them longer. Wearing heels would have probably have helped, but I thought since I was going for the boho look, flats were more appropriate. Stacey and Clinton may not be planning a trip to Virginia yet, but many more of these outfit’s, and they will be buying a ticket. Let’s just crop the picture and no one will ever know I made a mistake????
