My New Favorite Outfit: Outfit Surprise

Outfit Surprise

I was looking at my skirts and pulled out this one, as I haven't worn it in a while, but was really unsure of what to pair it with. Then, I had one of these "I wonder..." moments. The ones where you have an outfit idea which will go one of to ways: you'll put it on and LOVE it, or you'll put in on and look a little bit like a toddler playing dress up in the dress up center at preschool. This, I loved. It's a little edgier than my norm, but I like that. I also like it can go with or without the cardigan, as Mother Nature's idea of spring is a little different than mine, hint, hint. What about you guys? Have you had any surprise outfits lately?




Cardigan: Ann Taylor $5 (thrifted)
Top: Express $20
Skirt: Target $11
Bracelets: Express $14
Shoes: Nine West $30

  5. They go together really nicely! I sometimes picture new pairings of pieces in my head and I think my failure rate is probably a bit higher than my success rate... but some of those successes have been some of my favorite outfits and ones I go back to over and over again. So, definitely worth it to try! Have a good weekend!

  9. I hadn't seen this skirt of yours in a long while & I do love that skirt. I have a very similar top to yours which reminds me to pull it out of my closet & wear it. =)

  18. like how you are experimenting with mixing patterns. it looks pretty cute. I think I would personally pick a shorter cardigan my first instinct, but long one looks really cute too.
