August 15, Ankle Socks

It honestly almost pains me to post this before photo because in my opinion it is SO BAD!! And please note, I wouldn’t actually wear this- but I have seen women that do, and I feel it is my duty to point out that ankle socks with tennis shoes are a major don’t!

It’s not just the ugly socks that are wrong in my before look, the denim shorts are also a problem. They don’t fit well- they are too tight, creating almost a baby romper look! They pinch at the thigh- which is not flattering at all. The after shorts allow a little room- making my legs look thinner. I also like the lighter denim for this casual outfit.

While this is adorable on a 2 year old, it’s not so cute on me! Photo creds: Ruffle Butts!

But the problems don’t even stop there. The oversize, crew neck is also bad. As mentioned, it is too big- you can see how the shoulders drop down my arms, and I had to tuck it in or else you’d wouldn’t have even been able to see the shorts. And to be frank, it’s just a plain, boring shirt. The Michael Stars shirt in the after photo is a better option. It’s still super casual, but also has some style to it with the Henley neckline. My Converse All Stars (with no socks) complete this easy outfit.

March 2, Weekend Casual

Today’s OOTD is what I call weekend casual: jeans, t shirt and tennis shoes. 

There’s nothing wrong with the outfit on the left, but it isn’t very stylish. The outfit on the right is a better version of the same idea.

In my opinion, broken in jeans is the epitome of relaxed style! (As seen here and here) Even if they aren’t old, these ripped ones sure look the part!  Best news is- they are from Target! And they are as soft as sweat pants. Seriously! Paired with this cute and comfy long sleeved Michael Stars t shirt- I’ve got an easy, casual weekend outfit. Happy Saturday!

Nov 21st, Disneyworld: Day 3

We did Epcot yesterday, and I am exhausted! I loved every minute of it though… friends had told me that it wasn’t that great- and to even skip it- but boy am I glad we didn’t! We had so much fun, saw so many things, and did some amazing rides!

Here is what I wore:

Again, I dressed in layers- and am glad I did! I kept changing my outfit throughout the day- it would be warm, then cold and windy, then warm again… crazy!

I wore my skinny cargo pants, a tank top, a white waffle style cotton shirt over the tank and then my denim shirt on top. As you can see, I have a small black cross body bag to hold my essentials (lip stick, sunglasses, map and tickets) and then on my back I have my backpack with the bigger stuff. I’m wearing my Puma’s- which proved again to be a great choice! My feet never hurt!

As I stated on the first day- I know this isn’t the most fashionable look in the world- but it is cute enough to not embarrass my family!

Pants: Micheal Kors, Shirt: Micheal Stars, Denim shirt: J Crew, Shoes: Puma

Not to be mean- but I did see some things I would advise not to wear.

It’s a horrible picture, but can you see this gal’s stretch pants? I wonder if she looked in the mirror before she left the hotel room? This is awful!

This family decided to wear matching tie dyed shirts…

It’s hard to see, but this gal has little Winnie the Pooh on the back of her socks… seriously?!

Today we are hitting Universal Studios! I’ll post my outfit from today tomorrow!

March 5th, Dressed for Success

It’s Monday, which means I’m heading into the office today, which means I need to dress somewhat nice!

I’ve chosen this cotton red Michael Stars dress. It’s super comfy, I like the bright red color, the bell sleeves and faux wrap style.

My only issue is the length. I’m a little worried that it’s too long (since it hits me below the knee) but paired with my black boots I think it works. What do you think?

I do know that at least it’s better than the dress on the right.

I call this my ‘nun outfit’. The length is awful- hitting me right above the ankle. This is not flattering at all. It’s very matronly and old fashioned looking. I bought this over 12 years ago and it’s been sitting in my closet ever since. Now I know why!

I’m hooking up with Monday Mingle today. Be sure to check it out for other great ideas.

For you petite gals who want to look taller, here is another great example of how to dress in all one color.
