The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

I've had the same weekday morning routine for over a year.  I get up around 5:15, head to the gym for a group fitness class at 6 and get to work around 7:45.  It's a great way to start my morning, but it does come with its share of complications.  Each night before bed I pack my gym bag with the outfit I will wear to work the next day.  I like to plan my outfits out in advance, and sometimes they are a big win and sometimes... Well, let's just say this outfit looked a whole lot better in my head then it did once I put it on in the gym locker room.  Unfortunately, I don't have enough time to run home and change before work, so on days like this I am stuck with the outfit I picked out.  

In my head it seemed to all work.  The combination of olive and dusty rose seemed great.  Pairing casual booties with the feminine pleated skirt? Total win.  Using chambray as a neutral to anchor to look?  Yup!  But on it seemed off, I think mostly due to the proportions and cuts of the garments.   I flirted with the idea of not even photographing it, but this blog is all about my personal style: the good, the bad and the ugly!

First of all, the second I saw the thumbnail of this outfit I loved it! So I think you made it totally work! Second, I have a similar routine now that I work full time. I pick out my outfits the night before largely because the baby sleeps in my husband and I's room so I hang the outfit (complete with underwear and jewelry and bag and sunglasses) in the bathroom so I don't wake the baby in the morning. So sometimes I really don't know how my outfit is going to go! It's a little unnerving!
