Red and Plaid - Not Feeling It

I was just not feeling this outfit today. Maybe it's the blouse, which is kind of baggy in the midsection. Maybe it's the jacket - too short/too cropped? Maybe it's the skirt, which is sitting lower on the waist and is all wrinkled from sitting all day and looks like it's tight across my muscly (haha) thighs.
Could also be the hose, which snagged like a spiderweb on anything that I looked at. Or the shoes, which are a smidge too big, so I kept stepping out of them.

My Calvin Kleins:
Oooh, ahhhh. A lovely classic black suede pump. These are probably the most boring shoes I own, but I recognize the need to own a Plain Black Pump.
The skirt is new-to-me. I like the red stripe in it.

Jacket (Vero Moda), blouse (Vero Moda), skirt (Jacob, consignment), shoes (Calvin Klein), belt (Bianca Nygard), bracelet (Le Chateau), earrings (Plum), hose (Hue).


  1. I absolutely love the heels...perfect shape, perfect platform, perfect heel...such a great shoe! You should get some of those heel grips so that your foot doesn't slide out, or put some paper in the toe of the shoe.

  2. I hate the days where we fight with our clothes. You just feel a little off the whole day. I know you'll be able to take all of these great pieces and rework them into other fabulous creations.

  3. I fear this not feeling it with the clothes must be catching.
    I love the colours on you but agree that it is the combination of the similar loose shapes on your top half that may be the problem.
    But I have to say I always take my picture at the beginning of the day. If you have walked to and form work and done a whole days work then you look fabulous!

  4. For what it's worth, I LOVE this outfit. And I'm not just being nice. ;)

  5. I love this outfit!i think the cropped jacket makes your outfit interesting,and You look lovely:-)

  6. Man, you guys are so nice. Thank you all for your supportive comments. You make a gal feel great.

    V: Are they not the most perfect black pumps? You're totally right - I need those heel grips.

    Hillary: I know, you're right. This combo just felt off.

    Jane: I laughed when I read your blog about not feeling your outfit. Great minds think alike. I think you are right about the two loose shapes. Yes, it's tough to feel good about how you look when you've been through a full day feeling off.

    Sal: Aw, you are too sweet.

    Lady D: I love the jacket, but just not with this outfit. Thank you!
