I am up for a blog award. Yup. That’s right. Little ole me is about to be crowned the “Not-so-Cool Girl” in blogland.
It’s an honor really, because I have been working up to this for my entire life. Reality says I am just not that cool. Try as I might to change perception.
And this week, this not-so-cool girl is about to show you a whole bunch of lame outfit photos. That’s right! I bet you can’t wait. Some of them are even so blurry, you’ll think you’re getting a migraine. Hold off before popping those Triptans. It is just another week of What I Wore Wednesday, goober style.
Outfit 1: Fall Casual with Scarf
This is my favorite of the outfits, despite the painful expression on my face.
T-shirt: $2 discount place, Jeans: Old Navy, Scarf: Charming Charlies.
Problem: The jeans are boot cut and I had to shove all that fabric into those boots. Not ideal, but I am working with what I have.
Upside: I love my birdy scarf.
Outfit Two: Dress with Boots
The next outfit looked better in person, at least that’s what I am telling myself. It needed jewelry, but I was away and had packed when I had a migraine, so I gave nothing much thought. I simply threw clothes in a bag.
Dress: Target (about 5 years ago), Belt: Charming Charlies, Boots: Target (last fall)
The Madonna belt is not the best, but again I am trying to work with what I have and I think it looked better than the sash that came with the dress. I love wearing boots with dresses. Do you?
Outfit 3: Thrifted Designer Skirt
Ignore the polka-dots on my legs. It’s part of the not-so-cool girl thing.
Let’s talk about the shoes…I love them. Pure love. They aren’t the most comfortable shoes to wear if you need to walk or stand, but they look smashing when you are sitting for a long period of time and swinging your leg.
And the skirt?
My best thrift find in a long time. It is Barneys of New York, an Italian size and everything! I wasn’t sure if it would fit when I saw an Italian size 42 (I have no clue what that means in English), but I took a chance and it’s perfect.
Skirt: Barneys of New York THRIFTED, Shoes: Seychelles, Shirt: Gap, Bracelet: Francesca’s, Belt: Charming Charlies.
It needed a belt. It looked better with than without the belt.
Back-to-School Fashion Show
This next idea I totally stole from Lemonade Makin’ Mama.
I had my daughter try on all her fall outfits and we did a little fashion show. This way she’ll know what matches what, because mornings can get a little wonky in my house and FringeKid has a fierce miss-matched style.
FYI: I did not leave the house in pajama pants, no makeup, and a hypnotic shirt. I promise. Well, I did wear the hypnotic shirt, but definitely not with those pants.
Now, I am over at An Army of Ermas sharing my BBQ recipe. Go visit!
And if you aren’t sick of me yet…
I also brought my not-so-cool self over to Portugal the other day. Go visit me there!
P.S. The “Not-So-Cool” blog award does not exist, but if it did, I’d be a good contender. 😉
