Not Crazy About Monday


This is one of those outfits that look okay in the mirror, but then you see the pic and go.."wow, that really doesn't work for me". I love everything I'm wearing. It just didn't mesh as well as I wanted it to. I will say that is one good thing about taking pics of your outfit. You really do get to see what works and doesn't work. Here are the details of one that didn't quite work...

Everything except the belt is Target.

So as you can see it was a nice morning in Houston. We took the scooter to work and here I am in the parking garage of my office building. Will and I both work for the same company. It's where we met. We never did work together or in the same department. We were on the same floor, which lead to casual flirting in the kitchen. The rest is Willary history :-)

After a long day of work, working out, and grocery shopping. I came home to a pkg from D'Rae who was my accessory swapper from Oh That Girl's Accessory Swap. I got a beautiful navy blue butterfly scarf, a rockin' pink and gold ribbon belt, and a pretty jeweled heart shaped pin. Thanks D'Rae! I can't wait to work these into my outfits. And thanks to OTG for setting up the swap. It was my 1st time participating. I enjoyed picking things out for Laurie and seeing the goodies D'Rae sent.

Is the OTG swap limited to only accessories for girls? Can I use this to swap my vintage cowboy belt buckles and swinger cuff links?

You wish AD! :-) TNS next week? I'll call with more details.

Those are some awesome pieces you got from the accessory swap! So cute hearing about you and your hubby too. I am still jealous of your scooter!!

I think your outfit is cute! I do agree about how differently things can look in pictures vs. the mirror though. Cute Willary story also!

Now see, my first reaction when I saw this picture was that I loved the outfit and you looked great! I do understand what you mean about taking pictures and seeing an outfit completely differently. Ive had that happen often- this past Saturday the most recent!

I like the outfit, but would wear it w/a different shirt underneath...the turtleneck is not my favorite. But the sweater is so cute!

I like this outfit... you're right about outfits looking different in pics - but that one of the reasons I blog - is to get an outside opinion on my outfits, and to be able to look back and see what looked good, and what was eh.. not so good!

Personally, I haven't seen you wear an outfit that isn't super cute!

I actually like the outfit too and was trying to see what you don't care for...maybe it needs a necklace, maybe you feel something is missing? Either way I think it looks very flattering on you.

But I do know what you mean about taking pix...it's much different than just looking in the mirror. It's taken me a while to get used to that myself since I'm still so new at this.

Thanks ladies. I do have to agree with V though. I think it's the turtleneck that's throwing this outfit off. Too dark and it made my face looks fuller or something (but maybe it's just a still haf-asleep look). Also not crazy about the belt. I'll tweak it.
