My Epic Outfit Fail

Mustard Sweater, Plaid skirt, Atlanta Stylist

Outfit fails can happen to anyone! Nobody gets dressed with the intention of looking a hot mess, but hey it happens. I can’t tell you how many times Kaylin (my photographer) has sent back my pics from a shoot and at least one look was all wrong. I’ve had moments where my mom gut was hating on me or my pants or skirt was twisted or the look wasn’t as cute in reality as it was in my head.

I’m sure we can all attest that things don’t always turn out the way we want. This look is evidence of that. Here I am thinking I’m cute or whatever only to realize that my sweater is bulging through my skirt.  I was going for an effortlessly chic look by opting for half-tucking my sweater.  Clearing I failed!  Typically, a button-down blouse works better for the half-tuck look.  For a thick sweater like the one I’m wearing I should have only tucked in just a few inches of the material either in the front or on the side. 

Once I got the pics back and saw the error of my ways, I cringed.  How could I have done such a dis-service to this super cute look?  I thought about re-shooting the look but reconsidered because life happens, right.  I guess I should be grateful, it could have been a situation where my skirt was stuffed in my underwear. 

Have you ever encountered an outfit fail situation?  What was it and how did you handle it?
