Lesson Learned

Ugg, I'm not pleased with this one. Last night I was thinking about what to wear today and in my mind, this looked fine so I didn't try it on. Mornings are rushed in our house so I threw this on and left for school, not giving it a thought. It wasn't until I saw this picture, that I realized something is off. I think it's the light tights that are throwing me for a loop. I'm so used to seeing my legs enclosed in black tights. Perhaps a lighter skirt would have been more suitable. Lesson learned; I need to give my work outfits a quick try the night before.

Skirt: Joe Fresh
Tank: J Crew
Sweater: J Crew
Tights: Spanx
Shoes: Naturalizer - Yes, I am wearing heels a day after I said I was going to cool it with the heels. Flats sometimes make me feel stumpy and I had one of those mornings (and days) where I hate everything. Wearing heels made me feel better.


  1. I don't know...I think it is cute. Remember, we are our own worst critics. (Well, except the awful mean anon commenters who really have nothing else to do except criticize, but then they would think Grace Kelly's nose is too big.) LOL.

    Maybe a different layering tank next time? I think the color is too close to your own skin tone and with a different, darker cardi it may work, but with a white cardi it is all a bit pale.

  2. Hmmm, that could do the trick. I"d either change the top or the bottom. One of them has got to go!
    Thanks Dina :-)

  3. Light tights are a tough one – it's funny because sometimes I wish I had them! In particular with that red H+M skirt that we both have. I think maybe something about the blue and white and t-strap maryjanes make it feel a little Alice in Wonderland. But you look cute! :)

  4. awwwww white tights are a pain sometimes. I love the top part though =) so very pretty!

  5. I don't think its terrible. The peices on their own right are beautiful. Wear this skirt again with something else!

    I think the color combo is what is a little off. The skirt contrasts with the tights and cardi kind of like a school uniform. Tan tights would have toned it down so it wasn't so... schoolgirl. But overall the best thing to do would probably wear a different color skirt.

  6. It is a cute outfit! Maybe different colored shoes with the light tights. Light tan shoes for example. Or like someone else said maybe tan tights.

  7. Aw, I don't think it's that bad, it's very ballet-dancerish with the light tights. The color of that skirt is amazing too!
