For some reason, I have this terrible habit of buying poorly fitting pants. Chinos, dress pants, trousers (I generally do ok with jeans). Here is yet another example - these brown gap pants are slightly too short, awkwardly straight leg and are being held together by a safety pin because my butt is too big. So instead of getting rid of them, I wore a longer tank and boyfriend cardigan
top: Old Navy
flats: Blowfish from Nordstrom
cowl scarf: handmade
Monday brought Cait and I to La Jolla, but only after I worked a half-day. So I needed to wear something work-appropriate that was easy enough for eating/shopping/site-seeing in La Jolla in the afternoon. I also wanted to repeat my remix item (the trousers) before it got too late in the challenge.
the dressy: top from BR outlet
the casual: striped cardigan, also from BR outlet
trousers: the Limited
belt: BR outlet
A long walk back to the car brought us to this fabulous tiled mural called “What’s your favorite color?” It was just begging to be the background for our outfit photos.
If this outfit looks familiar, you have a good memory of Day 1. [I didn’t spend hours coming up with this combo, as you can see]
Also, here’s Cait - rocking an almost identical outfit to what I wore on Saturday! GSTA. [great stylists think alike] In fairness, she packed her clothes long before I picked out what I was going to wear so she definitely wins the originality award.
I guess I should have contrasted my neutral outfit with a more colorful background.
I also have realized that I cannot pull off a straight face for these photos. I look weird doing anything but smiling. But smiling in every pic feels boring.
What is going on with my hand here? Someone please come save me from myself.
pre-7am, Milano Centrale station, heading to venice.
no make-up, hair unstyled, sleepy - but heading to venice!
6 hours later: much warmer, hanging out in Piazza San Marco
I am an average height I think (5’5”), but proportionately, I’m all legs. My upper body is very short.
I have the hardest time with tank tops, because what might be a normal neckline on anyone else, is incredibly low on me, regularly causing some bra peekage (ugh)
I love this tank I got for my birthday from my MIL, but the first time I wore it I spent all night tugging and adjusting and being paranoid I was showing too much.
For some shirts, I can adjust the shoulder to bring up the height a bit, so I did it this weekend with this top. It remains to be seen whether it will be enough to hold, but I’m in complete denial about wearing petite tops. I can’t do it!
