c/o Avery Lane poncho; Philip Lim for Target tank; Windsor cardigan; Target jeans; Minnetonka shoes.
In theory I like this look. The separate pieces are all really comfortable and easy, you know? It’s one of those outfits you throw on to go out for the day with your kids and you feel good in. And I did! (Emphasis on did.) Have I ever mentioned that I don’t currently own a full length mirror? It is 99% of the reason I didn’t find out that this look is sloppy and sort of weird until I got home later. Let’s break it down, shall we?
1) I love my Minnetonka moccasins, I do. But here they look sloppy and really weird with the jeans. They just blend in badly. They would have looked better with my black jeans or my black ankle boots would have been a better substitute with the gray jeans. And my shoes are untied, which my amazing husband failed to tell me. He’s fired.
2) I was trying to go without a jacket, so I layered a poncho, over a cardigan, over a tank, over another tank. And yes, I still froze. I think a black top or gray sweatshirt would have looked better underneath, and less ugly.
3) Lipstick! Girlfriend needs something to brighten up her face.
4) Next time I decide to do photos on a day when I haven’t washed my hair in 4 days and don’t wear a hat? You have permission to judge.
Anyone want to tell me about an outfit they hated? Instagram or tweet me a pic (@becauseofjackie) and tag it #badoutfit. Let’s amaze ourselves with our bad taste:)
