If You Will

28/30 [12/9/10]


Until recently, yellow {or mustard if you will} wasn’t really a color I wore. But I was fortunate that on a lovely day during the Nordstrom Annual Sale, that this little guy found me, and I’ve been enamored with yellow ever since. So with the challenge winding down {yes I will probably mention the end of this challenge in every post until it’s over} I thought I would give this cardigan one final hoorah. I was really excited by the idea of this outfit. I had yet to wear this cardigan with pants, nor had I worn this particular scarf. So I thought the combo seemed great, fabulous actually.

The actual result was, unfortunately, less than fabulous. These pants are a little big {and while I wouldn’t complain about that most days} it just made the look feel a little sloppy. This shirt was also not cooperating as it refused to stay tucked in. I thought a belt would help the pants from falling down/shirt untucking itself, but it was more a pain than anything.

C’est la vie. Not everyday can be a winner, right? Better luck tomorrow {today actually}.

Pin It!

    I'm sorry that you didn't feel as fabulous in this look as you look - because I think you do look fabulous. I love that shade of yellow on you, especially with that scarf. They just work so well together.

  3. Sorry for your sartorial woes but there are awful days like that. One of my WORST days was the very first of the challenge. I was so excited to begin but just ended up disappointed. I do love that sweater, though, and you make it look good!

  6. Awww...to bad that the outfit didn't work out to be fabulous in real life. Take solace in the fact that it looks good in pictures. That scarf is so pretty.

  20. Love the mustard, love the scarf, love the hair. Love, love, love. Seriously, I'd steal your hair except I'd look really strange as a blonde. And even though I'm sure you could pull it off, it wouldn't be very nice to make you be bald. <--that whole tangent was sort of creepy. Sorry. My compliments always end up weird.
