work taffeta + crazy lady hair

I dunno.  I was pretty pumped about this outfit and now I'm feeling very "meh" about it.  "Meh" as in "Meh-atronly."  100% the high collar's fault, but leaving the shirt unbuttoned a bit makes the fun ruffles wilt.  Boo.  Oh well, at least my skirt is swingy and has pockets!

  1. I think it needs a necklace. That would make it a little younger. But you look really cute!!

  2. I really really like this outfit a lot! I don't think it looks matronly at all, it's absolutely adorable! And you're looking very slim from the side!!

  3. I'm channeling you and skinny-belting today. Got a cute mustard one from F21 for $2.50. Check 'em out!

    Loooove your skirt.

  4. I like the tights! They have a good contrast with the skirt! Cute and classic!

  5. I think a necklace would be too busy. I like the shirt though. But maybe next time pair the skirt with a slim turtleneck?

  6. This is such a cute outfit! You can pull anything off! The tights are fantastic!

  7. LOL. This looks so similar to my OOTD for tomorrow (Wednesday), it's uncanny. But I really like it!

  8. Very cute! adore the skirt, and the post title is hilarious!
