wiww … it’s a little too short

Welcome all my new wiww friends
I love that so many of you visit
to see what irrational outfits I will wear each week
or is to see my highly valued posing skillz

whatever your flavor I hope you enjoy your visit.
Stay, look around
read a few old posts, learn a new tip, a recipe, or just hear me ramble!

this weeks outfit i am embarrassed by
when i put it on i loved it
i thought it looked great in the mirror
then i went to edit the pictures

i think i had on too many layers and the the length of the tank
made the cardigan look way too short
which in turn makes my h frame / apple shape look way to short and round!

let’s start with the cardigan…
i love it.
i also love that i got it on clearance at kohls for like 4.00! Holla

sequin teal cardigan

I used the gold sequins as my metal color inspiration.
I knew right away which necklaces i would wear.
the gold chain was a gift from my grandfather
the other necklace was a special order from Amanda Lynne Designs
a tree trunk with our initials carved in it..
ugh i get giddy each time it see it!

now enter the disaster..

short teal cardigan

black long sleeve-old navy | jeans-charlotte russe | green tank-mod bod | teal cardigan- kohls | necklaces- gift from grandpa, other Amanda Lynne Designs | black ballet flat socks- meijer

so what do you think
if i would have lost the green tank could it have worked?
maybe a t shirt and not a long sleeve shirt under next time..
maybe it’s the baggy jeans that are throwing it off?

  1. You are cute! And I wouldn’t call you a disaster by any means. I think tailored pants (skinny jeans) would sharpen you up a little, but it’s whatever! The goal is to be presentable to the rest of humanity, right? 😉

  2. Love the cardi! Love the price!! Love the color! Its a good color for you…. maybe pair it with skinny jeans or a skinny white jean! and it wil be perfect with short sleeves when it warms a little!

  3. I agree with the two girls above that you are adorable and funny! 🙂 I love the pop of blue and the necklaces! I even think the rest of your outfit isn’t too bad. Maybe, like you said, having short sleeves under your sweater instead of long and a complimentery color, like a soft yellow instead of the green? But – I was distracted by those cool birdhouses behind you!! Is that your house? Did you do those yourself? Love them! 🙂 Have a blessed day!

    You are so funny. I like all the layers! Maybe you could try buttoning the cardigan in the middle (just under the bust) instead of at the top? That might give you the shape you’re after.

  5. Two things, I think you’re adorable. But I also think you’re right. You could have lost a layer either way and it would have given you a bit more shape. Either ditching the cardigan or ditching the last layer (looks tan to me?). Take all of this with a grain of salt though… my yoga pants have never been to yoga.
