The Saddest OOTD…

November 15, 2012

Scarf, Belt: Thrifted | Cardigan: Old Navy | Vintage Dress: TFA | Tights, Shoes: Target

This is the saddest outfit post ever… such a nice outfit, such pretty fall colors… aaaand my camera battery died after about 10 shots. This is the only acceptable one. Bummer, but I still couldn’t resist sharing! I’ll just have to share detail shots of my amazing mouse belt and geometric wedge heels another time. Ho-hum.

Does anyone else have tragically old-fogey type parents who go nuts when you wear white after Labor Day? I was on my way to dinner with them after work when I took this photo–that explains my rush and inability to make sure my battery was charged–and they gave me so much shit. I don’t like any fashion “rules”, especially ones so dated and pointless.

  • Love the bow collar and the belt! You look lovely! :)

  • Oh my gosh what a cute dress! You look adorable :)

      Thank you! So funny that you commented–I thought that this felt very much like a Susannahbean outfit :)

  • My mom is okay with the labor day rule, but any time I mix patterns or black and brown, she loses it. Why can’t she just understand that fashion rules are MADE to be broken? :) Love that dress, by the way!

    my mother is not a fan of boots with shorts, all summer i got reamed over that, she also doesn’t dig my whole tights under shorts concept but whatever! this is a cute outfit, i’m dying over the neckbow

  • So. much. pretty. color. I think blue (especially a darker blue like that) and mustard is such an excellent combo. I don’t have anyone in my family that believes in the white after Labor day rule, but for the record… I hate that rule. I hate pretty much every fashion rule. Everyone is different! And for people who don’t like wearing white after Labor day… Tell them to tell that to Mother Nature. ;P The Earth is covered in white whenever we get snow!

  • That dress is a wonderful wonderful dress no matter what time of year it is.


  • So sorry to hear that your camera died! This really is a lovely look. x

  • This outfit is so awesome. I hate it so much when you’re wearing an outfit that you like more than any other outfit you’ve ever put together… and your camera dies one you. I know that frustrating feeling all too well.

      Thank you, doll! Ugh, it is very frustrating.

      It’s so exciting to see a comment from you btw–I’m a huge fan of your blog and style! Such a total mega-babe! :)

  • How could you be sad wearing this outfit?! It’s the happiest clothes I’ve ever seen. But I know what you mean about the camera. I like how your tights match the colour of the leaves perfectly.
