Oops, forgot (well, moreso didn’t have time) to post Friday’s 10 day-mini challenge outfit: coral neon and white blouse:
White/coral blouse: Forever 21
Navy cardigan: H&M
Beige straight-leg pants: H&M
Navy Flats: Target
White/Navy-striped headband w/ bow: Old Navy
Reason(s) I love it: that bright pop of linear coral, matching coral wrist-cuffs (rolled), and gold button accents.
Problem: too big, too see-through for work. Probably could’ve used a good steam session before wearing it out as well, ha.
Solution: cover up the width, pair some navy (I LOVE coral+navy) with it. I wanted to wear my newly-rediscovered navy blazer with it, but I already did that once last week so I decided to wear my favorite navy cardi instead. I also forgot to wear earrings or any other accessories other than my headband, oh well! I’m still not completely sold on keeping it. We’ll have to see if I wear it a few more times before the no-shopping challenge ends…which brings me to today’s item: this (meh) beige skirt:
love want to wear it: POTENTIAL. This skirt could be so cute, I just have yet to find an outfit I love with it. I mean, it’s so friggin’ simple, I could wear it with anything! Why am I having such a hard time with it??
Problem: too see-through. I have to wear two slips with it, and still wear a shirt long enough to cover my bum. Maybe it’s a better summer skirt. It’s light, airy, and could go a long way with a splash of teal or pink. I don’t really like the outfit I picked…I don’t know exactly why because I love the different pieces, especially the cardi and tights. I just feel old in it. Maybe it’s the combo of tights, pumps, long-skirt, and overall prude-ness. I’m not one to flaunt everything, but I feel really conservative and covered-up here. Maybe nude-tights would look better. Enough with my rambles.
Solution: to be determined…
