Olive Branch

This is one of those looked-better-in-my-head-than-in-the-pictures outfits.  Do you ever have those?  You think you look fab and realize you look pretty weird once the pictures turn out?  I regret not belting or tucking in this top, because it is just too flowy for my tastes.  It kept getting caught in the wind and billowing out, which trust me is not a good look.  I asked my boyfriend if this top made me look pregnant when the wind got it (trap!), but being a smart boyfriend he said "Uhhhhh, it's flowy!"  Paired with these olive cargo pants I've only worn once since buying them two years ago, this outfit is perfectly regrettable.
Top: Merona
Pants: LOFT
Shoes: Mossimo
Necklace: c/o Stella & Dot


Have you ever worn an outfit that seemed great in your head but horrible in execution?

PS, check back the rest of the week for your chance to win your own gorgeous Stella & Dot necklace!

I really like the shirt but I think you're right....it needs *something*. On the plus sign, it makes the ladies look great, so there's that. ;)

oh i do that more often than not. but practice makes perfect, right?

i like the colors here a lot - and the crops look great on your legs. but you're right, it needs something... maybe a blazer for an added layer? that might work better with the top than a belt... (?)

That pretty much happens all the time to me. It's happening less the longer I blog though, taking pictures of myself (as ridiculous as it feels) has def helped me figure out what's flattering. But not always. Hee.

There's something about the pants that don't seem very *you*. I could be totally wrong though.

I don't think this outfit is that bad at all, but I totally know what you mean. There have been too many times where I walked around thinking I was hot shit and then saw a pic and was like oh my...don't ever let me wear that again hahaha Live and learn. The good news is, no matter what you are gorgeous.

I had that moment yesterday! I went to take outfit pictures and after was like EWWWWWW WTH!
Thats one of the perks I think of taking pictures of your outfit, you really get to see "if it works".

I have those days myself. But the good thing about these days is I learn a lot about what suits me and what doesn't and having started making sure my closet is only stocked with the good, no matter what the current trends may be.

It happens all the time to me Kinsey! I snap the pick and say WTF? LOL Plus I'm a big and tall girl, so I have to watch cuts, colors and patterns.
