my outfit: the college try!

I am sure you all are with me on this: do you ever have a piece of clothing (or two) that you like, but you just can't seem to get it right when you wear it?

That is how I have been with this top (it's purple by the way... really dark if you can't tell). It is just a tunic style t-shirt from the Gap. It fits nicely, the color is great and it's very soft. But every time I have pulled it out to wear it I end up not knowing how to style it and putting it back in the closet. Grrr.



Even still, I like how this outfit came together... but I am still a little wary about the top. Maybe it's just a mind hurdle.




Either way... I gave it a good college try. Any way... moving on, I saw a gal at the coffee shop with her skinnies cuffed the other day. It reminded me how much I loved that look, so I had to knock it off. That is one of the main reasons I love getting out to coffee shops and other places I don't usually get to linger as a mom... there is lots of inspiration in what other people are wearing. Especially when you're at a place that you don't usually go!

The jacket, the shirt and the belt all look great together! I covet the jacket. It looks like a versatile piece to have.
And you have developed into being quite the model. Congrats on your cute self!

I have this shirt both in white and the navy/white stripe...in white I have worn it with leggings, boots and a boyfriend cardi with a scarf..the navy/white I've worn with skinny jeans, yellow flats and gold jewelry..just some more ideas! I think the fit is the key thing..I sized down in the tee and that seems to work well! I like what you did with it!
