what should i wear & how should i wear it

by @according2kelly on July 12, 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 wore & how i wear it. there’s nothing like having a little outfit accountability to get you motivated to actually get dressed each & every day.

but this week, i’m playing the game just a wee bit different. instead of showing you what i wore & how i wore it to the 2011 evo conference this past week… i’m asking YOU what should i wear & how should i wear it.

my brother is getting married THIS friday & i’m in wardrobe crisis. i still don’t know what i’m going to wear! i’ve have narrowed the choice down to six mustard-colored outfit possibilities. shoes & accessories have yet to be decided, but i’m hoping that maybe with your help i can find the perfect wedding ensemble.

so, without further ado, please help me decide what should i wear & how should i wear it…

what-i-wear-wednesday

{option a}
sweater: anthropologie

{option d}
jacket: talbots
skirt: talbots

{option e}

{option f}

so now it’s up to you. please, please, please tell me which outfit YOU think i should wear this weekend, to my brother’s wedding. option a, b, c, d, e or f?

together, we can make amazing wardrobe decisions. may the force be with you.

so what did YOU wear this week?

I vote for D! Too bad Talbots stuff doesn't look as cute on me as it does on you and the girls in their monthly catalog!

Of course you look super cute in all the outfits, but my favorite is D!

I'm voting for b, d, or e. You could be like Kate Moss at her wedding and wear all three, or just count me for whichever you like the best, because you could rock all of them!

im stopping by from the pleated poppy... my favorite is F but i think i would try with lighter shoes. i like D as well if it is a more formal or church wedding.

So many great options! You look amazing in all the outfits though, I don't think you can go wrong.

I love b. You can't see the cute details in the pic, so the others don't see how cute it is...or d. It is very cute..a. And f. Looks like something your mother, which is me, would wear!

I adore the dress in (B) but w/o the sweater and w/ the shoes from option (C). :0)

I think D is the most classic, if you're going for that look. C also seems more dressy than the rest of the choices, although they're all fabulous! Is that sweater in the store currently?

Oh my gosh! I went to this site & I was so surprised to see the Kelly I know! They all look great; you always do. I think D.

They all are good but d and e are my favorites :)

I am in the minority and think A is best. It is fun and colorful and cheerful for the happy day. Also, the full skirt is playful. And I just think I'm digging the bright colors on you--looks best to me!

I would go with D, but maybe a dressier shoe...You look beautiful in all of them, D looks more like wedding attire to me ;)

I vote the skirt from F, the shrug from E & add a tank or camisole underneath - ivory, pink, pale blue or yellow. Love that skirt!

great idea! I do need to pair it with better shoes. i do love that skirt. it looked kinda "old lady" on the rack, but i'm just in love with it.

@according2kelly

i don't think i had ever been inside a talbots store prior to this shopping experience. they had some really lovely things!

@according2kelly
@according2kelly

that would be adoreable. I am worried about cold summer nights. maybe a pretty pashmina?!

@according2kelly
