If last week’s outfit was an example of a fail, here’s what’s hoping here’s an outfit success. Narrower denim cuffs, a better proportioned — yet still loosely fitted top — and a pair of wedges for cozy height work much better than last week’s look. One of my favorite aspects of this blouse is that it doesn’t overwhelm my smaller top half yet gives me a bit of ‘breathability’ since I’m not comfortable showing off my tummy these days. Finding it helpful to always think about my proportions rather than what works well on a friend or fellow blogger, or if I just like it. Does the cut cut and look flatter? If not, I’m ditching it or putting it back (a testament to my shopping yesterday at LOFT: swear at least 14 to 17 items went back; I couldn’t even find a tank or summer tee that fit me well even though I loved them!).
More photos after the jump, including a close-up of my favorite sentimental necklaces and what’s apparently my go-to pose.
Hope you can see my two super tiny necklaces. The first is an “s” necklace by Maya Brenner for my little girl, Sarah, that never leaves my neck and the other is a vintage piece of a little pink shoe gifted to me by my husband’s grandma; it’s the sweetest!
I’ve realized this hand on my hair is my go-to pose. No one told me, I just realized it’s in almost every outfit post. Seriously. Like “Waldo,” you can find it on every page! Do you have a go-to pose?
blouse: h&m (approx. feb. 2012) // jeans: joe’s jeans via tj maxx (2011; similar) — these have a higher rise, which is not my style for tucking in however they make my stomach (or scary muffin top feeling!) feel very secure) // wedges: nine west (2008?) // necklaces: c/o maya brenner, vintage // tote (my love!): michael kors
