what i wear & how i wear it

by @according2kelly on June 15, 2011

i’ve joined a movement – a fashion movement that is. sweats, work out pants & sometimes even pajamas have become the norm much to often. so i’m linking up with the always fabulous lindsey to document what i wear & how i wear it. there’s nothing like having a little outfit accountability to get you motivated to actually get dressed each & every day.

gingham shirt: j. crew
seersucker skirt: j. crew

maybe i’m crazy, but i just LOVE the juxtaposition of the crisp, fluorescent yellow gingham dress shirt and the classic seersucker pencil skirt.

Love all the looks! You are making me think twice about pairing up different items in my closet to create new looks! I need to look into it and change it up. :)

oh heavens! sometimes getting dressed to "hang out at home" isn't always the most motivating thing. i hate "wasting" outfits - i've got to get over that! This is a fun way to encourage me to get fancy every day.

I wish i could wear the seersucker every day! & thankyou for the compliment! I have to say, it was a great boost - I always feel like it's too cheesy looking!

You are a brave woman to be so bright & colorful! I would never think to do the combinations you do, but they look soooo cute on you! Bravo!

thanks for the compliments! i was actually just complaining about the state of my hair. it's in that iffy stage - need to decide if i should cut it or grow it! & the crocheted TOMS are new. I'm really eyeing the lime green ones too!
