What I Wore Wednesday

It’s that time again!  Not only do I like WIWW because it encourages me to make cute, original outfits but I also like it because I always know what I’m going to post on Wednesdays.  I’ve been so busy recently that at least knowing what to write on one day is a relief :).

On to the clothes.

dress (worn to look like a skirt) – Old Navy

Maxi skirts are so in right now.  I don’t have one yet, but I do have a maxi dress – on a whim I threw this shirt over it and now it looks like a shirt+skirt combo.  Love it!

shirt – TJ Maxx
cardigan – Loft outlet
skirt – Talbots
shoes – Shoe Carnival(?)

Why is it that sometimes you put on an outfit, think it looks so great, and then see a picture of yourself and realize otherwise…but then other times you put on an outfit  think it doesn’t look very good at all, wear it anyway, and then see a picture and end up liking it much better than you originally thought?  So odd.  That’s what happened with this outfit – I thought it had way too much cream/white and that it wasn’t flattering at all, but I decided to wear it anyway because I couldn’t decide on anything else, and then when I looked at the pictures Michael took I realized that it was cuter than I thought.  Score!

Kinda like this…

In other news, I cannot get my hair to stay in a regular ponytail.  I don’t know if it’s because my hair has gotten so long or I need to get some more supportive ponytail holders, but even when I put my hair in a ponytail in the middle of my head, it slides down to the nape of my neck and somehow becomes a side ponytail that drapes over one shoulder.  Every.Single.Time.  Anyone else have this problem?

Linking up to What I Wore Wednesday.

  1. I have the same problem with regular ponytails in my hair… Not sure why it does it though unless it has to do with my hair being longer and heavier.

  2. Very cute! I like the purple and turquoise together in your second outfit.

  3. I love that Talbot’s Skirt – so cute and springy!

  4. Ooh, I love the second outfit!! Those colors go so well together!
    I agree… My outfits sometimes look better/worse in pictures too. It’s strange!

    • I’m glad I’m not the only one :). It really is true that what you see in the mirror is not the same as what you see on camera!

You've heard what I have to say...now I want to hear your thoughts!
