Uncontrollable




Dress (Taylor find at Marshalls); Scarf (H&M); Tights (Target);
Shoes (Nine West); Watch (Fossil); Earrings (Limited)

You know when things don't work out the way we plan - we say the universe is telling us something?  Well today the universe was telling me to wear my blue/green tights.  I had the best intentions of wearing black tights - but 2 weeks in a row of work travel has left me with a basket full of unwashed black tights. And so sometimes my fashion choices are as simple and uncontrollable as a laundry issue, or as complex as the universe interceding and showing me a better option... I prefer to think it's the latter :)

I love this pairing - houndstooth, floral and teal tights! Very creative. One of my goals this year is to break out of my ordinary pairings. Your looks are definitely giving me some inspiration.

I'm glad I'm not the only one whose outfit choices are sometimes dictated by what happens to be clean! Though I think you're pulling it off much more chic-ly and stylishly than when it happens to me. :)

Awesome dress, the scarf is perfect with it!

Rachel said...

I really like that you ended up wearing brighter colored tights with your black and white dress! It definitely takes the outfit a little out of the norm.

Kristin Reynolds said...
