30 for 30: Outfit 22








Occasion:

Friends, I have a bit of a confession to make...I wore something not in my 30 for 30!

I did it by accident, I promise!! Let me explain...I've been sick for a few days (I won't get into the details), but the first day I woke up and felt a bit under the weather, I took some sudafed and ibuprofen immediately to help me get through my day so I could make it to school. However, I was in such a haze that morning that when I reached for my 30 for 30 approved boots, I saw these cute little black flats in the back of my closet (that I have never worn before) and thought "Hey, this would look super cute together!" I was too out of it to realize that I was about to wear something that wasn't previously designated for 30 for 30! Please forgive me...I won't do it again:) Also, Kendi, if you could find it in your super fashionable heart to forgive me as well, that would make it all better!

So aside from my little 'indescretion', here's #22! Since I wasn't feeling so hot, I decided to compensate with a 'dressier than normal' outfit. This little black cardi has been a closet staple this winter and I love how it is a bit different than just a plain button down cardi - the cute side zip and cross-over are a bit unexpected:) I paired the cardi with this taupe colored silk blouse and my black pencil skirt. Since the sweater is a bit busy and the blouse has such cute neck details, I simplified my accessories. Just a pretty gold chain necklace and a patterned silk scarf headband. The black flats have cute bead/button detailing that didn't photograph well in this lighting...but I guess that's what I get for wearing items that are not approved!

Outfit:

Sweater: J.CREW

Shirt: Thrifted

Skirt: GAP

Tights: Century 21 (Hue)

Necklace: Banana Republic

Scarf: Century 21

Shoes: Banana Republic


Have you had any slip-ups in your 30 for 30? Do you over-compensate when you aren't feeling well with a nice outfit?
