good outfit / terrible hair

You know when you throw on a new combination of clothes, not because you've really thought it out in your head, but because you're late and you've decided not to style your hair so you figure that whatever conglomeration of fashion mish-mash materializes will probably be acceptable but then you end up actually loving this new ensemble and then you're all pissed off because now you've wasted a cute outfit on a bad hair day? 


Just me?

Am I even speaking English right now? 



I'm just digging the colors together... orange and purple... who'da thunkit?

 Violet Dress - Banana Republic 
Orange "Heritage" Cardigan - Land's End Canvas
Serengeti "Juliet" Pumps - J.Crew
Pearl Cluster Earrings - Etsy Seller Bridal Emunique
Gold Medallion Necklace - gift
Sapphire Ring - gift
Metallic Skinny Belt in Blush - J.Crew


  1. Don't worry, the outfit looks so great it takes all the attention away from the hair!

  2. I have a dress just like this and always struggle with how to wear it! Thanks for the inspiration - it works well together!

  3. Orange + purple = best color combo everrr. I love it!

    (Didn't even notice your hair. See? Maybe that's the problem- whenever I have a bad hair day I feel like slumpin' and wearing something blah and ugly to match my blah and ugly hair. I should *really* wear something super colorful and awesome as a distraction. Brilliant, actually- bravo!)

  4. I love the outfit! Is the dress still in stores?

  5. That is not terrible hair. You want terrible hair? I'll give you terrible hair.

  6. I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes I'll throw an outfit together, love it, then take it off because I'd rather save it for another day when I'm out of the office or meeting friends for lunch, rather than sitting at the desk all day. Glad to know someone else does these things!

  7. My hair has oatmeal in it today... 'cause that's what happens when you eat oatmeal and DRIVE and bend over to retrieve your fumbled spoon from the console and then don't realize that loose hair is prone to the laws of gravity and will fall into your wide open oatmeal bowl if not properly restrained.

    Yup. And I'm wearing batman underwear. Why? Because I can.

    You look darling.

  8. Go Clemson! Of course orange and purple is the *perfect* color combo! I wear it all the time. :)

  10. You look like you are going to a Clemson game! These colors look great on you! I am a little biased about purple and orange though.

  11. Great color combo and your hair looks better than mine does, trust me.

  12. Cute combo! And I agree with you, wasting a cute outfit on a bad hair day.

  13. haha! while your hair is nowhere near terrible, you just described 3 out of 5 of my weekday mornings! ha!

    Anyway, your outfit is fabulous! Great post!

  14. A little late - but I agree with the other two Clemson girls - purple and orange gets two thumbs up in my book! :)
