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?

Black Moto + Tartan Print Skirt

Hey ya'll, hey!  Guess what I'm sitting here doing...

Watching football with my husband.  Never would have thought in a million years that I'd become a football fan.  Welp, Christmas is this Friday and in the spirit of the holiday I wanted to wear something "Christmassy." I think this tartan print skirt (worn

here

) is a perfect option for the season.  How would you have styled this skirt?

Red Plaid Skirt w/ Black Peter Pan Collar

When I first saw this skirt...

 It was love at first sight and then I hoped that I could wear it.  Being short, I usually stay away from long skirts, unless they are really cute and then I make them work for my height.  I think I did well for myself.

Something Like DOPE!

Hi Stylenista's

This year is coming to an end and what a year it has been.  I attended a vision board party in January and as I look back over the last 11 months I'm overjoyed at seeing some of the items that I put on my vision board come to life this year.  *Proverbs 29:18 - Without a vision, the people perish...  I'm so excited to see what year 2015 has to offer.

The look in this post was inspired by my diy beanie.  After seeing a similar version on a model at a fashion show I knew right away that I was going to give it a try.  I must admit that the finished product was very cute, however, I didn't account for the fact that I would have to wear it over all this hair.  After a few minor adjustments, it turned out rather cute.  Oh! One other thing.  I'm only wearing one thrifted item!!!!!!!!!!!!
