Stripey











Occasion:

First of all, it's my BIRTHDAY today!!! Woohoo! D and I celebrated by going to see a Broadway musical in NYC. We saw 'Baby It's You' about the Shirelle's rise to fame and their career. We also went to a nice restaurant and had a great dinner. This morning I woke up to pearl earrings on my nightstand. D also got me almost all of the Glee soundtracks. Thanks for making my birthday so special for me D! I love you and can't wait to celebrate many many more birthdays with you:)

I am going to preface this post by saying that I really don't like this outfit but that is part of style blogging and also part of life...so here goes. I have actually since returned this shirt because I didn't like the way it fit once I saw the photos. It is definitely too big and unflattering. But this is my daily life documented in photos so you know you are seeing the good, the bad and the ugly (hopefully very little bad and ugly!).

Lots of style bloggers have this navy and green stripey shirt and when I saw it on others I loved it...so I ran out and bought it. Turns out, this was one of those items that definitely looks better on others (and the hanger) than me...oh well, you win some you lose some. I paired it with this navy skirt and I think that because the shirt is baggy and the skirt is flowy, the whole balance of the outfit is off and just looks big and awkward. I should stick to the one looser/one fitted piece rule...its a tried-and-true one. To add some color, I wore this fun beaded necklace, some turquoise sandals and topped the ensemble off with this fun panama hat. It was a good effort, but in the end it just didn't pan out.
