outfit of the day

OOTD: Exciting

March 16, 2013







Cardigan: Old Navy | Shirt: F21 | Dress(worn as skirt), Flats, Tights: Target | Belt: Thrifted

One of my coworkers walked into the office yesterday when I was wearing this and goes “Wow! You look exciting!” Haha, she went on to talk about how she never feels confident enough to wear bright colors, so I’m assuming “exciting” means “Whoa, you got a lot goin’ on, lady” I do! And thank you!

This was the first day in months that it actually felt good to be outside wearing just a cardigan! Our 72 degree high yesterday was definitely a tease since it’s colder again today, but I’ll take what I can get!

These photos are my first since my much needed hair cut and color this week! I was getting a bit too shaggy and although I loved this outfit, seeing photos of my bangs pinned back like that due to overgrowth was the last straw. Haha, not my favorite look.

  • OMG that kitty print on the blouse! ♥.♥ I also really love the gray and white striped cardigan. I love anything stripe-y.

  • Meg

    You look so good in these pastel colors! They suit you so well. I’m not sure I can pull them off without looking like a 12-year-old. Jealous. And I LOVE your hair!!

    • Michelle

      Oh man, I feel like I still always look like a 12 year-old! I joke that it’s my goal to look like a giant baby haha. Why should kids get all the fun with their wardrobe?!

  • I love your mixed prints!! I’m totally obsessed with that top, it looks more expensive than F21 :) You are always so cute!!


  • Your hair and outfit look amazing. You look so happy and I agree ‘exciting’. Hehehe
    That cat shirt from forever 21 is too cute.

    • Michelle

      Thanks, Cazz! It was impossible not to be happy in that weather! I’m definitely missing it now. :/ I tried happy jumping photos but oh lawd… my face was not cut out for such a thing haha

  • You look great, love the top!

  • <3 that cat blouse. Such a sweet outfit.

  • Oh my goodness, could you be any cuter? Can I steal this outfit? Can we be best friends? :D

    • Michelle

      Hahaha omg Mandy let’s be friends and raid each other’s closets for sure! I feel ripped off that our paths never crossed in Springfield! I bet they did at some point and we never even knew.

  • Pastels AND cats! I don’t this this outfit could be any more perfect.

  • That kitty top is so super cute. I don’t have anything mint with cats on it. Perhaps I need to go shopping soon….

    • Michelle

      Yessss mint + cats is a necessity, let’s be real

  • This outfit is so adorable! That top is also kind of the greatest thing ever! I am so jealous of anyone who has a cute cat print piece, I have never been able to find on for myself.

  • I LOVE the print mixing going on here. Pretty darn amazing. And I would be thankful to look exciting. Better than boring!

    • Michelle

      Amen, sister! That’s always my motto :)

  • I love love love that shirt!!!

  • This outfit is sooo adorable, love white tights!!! xx
