One of Those Days


There really isn't a rhyme or reason for this outfit.
I randomly just grabbed odds and ends out of the closet and put them on my body.
Thought that it was better than wearing pajamas to work.
Mission Accomplished.
So I thought...




Until one of my students graciously shared with me that I didn't match.
I looked at HIM for a long time.
Really? That's what you are worried about?
So, you are grading ME now?
Then, I found myself trying to school him on the concept of matching vs. blending...neutral tones, bla bla blah.
Then I caught myself.
Why am I explaining my style choice to someone who is wearing pants down to his ankles and a "I Love Nicky Minaj" t shirt?


(The scarf was more for funtion than for style today.)

Ralph Lauren Blazer (one of my faves)
Thrifted button down shirt
Zara scarf
JC Penney Cargoes (my version of jeans/casual wear)
Sam Edelman Wooties/Bedges (Booties+wedges...I like to make words up sometimes)
Louis Vuitton Sac Plat

That sounds like just like my daughter. "Momma, you know red and purple don't match" me, "Maddie, it's called colorblocking" Maddie,"well, I call it tacky". WALKS OFF BEFORE I LOSE MY FREEDOM OVER CHOKING AND 11 YEAR OLD! LOVE THE LOOKS GIRL!!

They pay attention to everything but what they should be paying attention to don't they...I remember it well :-)

Isn't it funny how sometimes the best outfits come from the "odds and ends" we just grabbed out of the closet? Those pants are the business!

GFS said...

Amazing look. Love the scarf and the preppy blazer.

I have the plus size version of those pants. i love love love them!

GFS said...

hahaha!!! So funny! Yes, don't even go there with the 11 yr old. It's a losing battle. Hell, I still have that argument with my husband, who won't wear black/brown or black/blue *sigh*

You know I love hodge-podge inspired outfits, so this one is a winner in my book.

GFS said...

I love your style and your the reasoning behind it. I definitely need more fashion in my life (hehehe). Still working on walking well in heels. LOL! I need more practice. ;)
