Ever have one of those days when an outfit looks better in your head than it does when you put it on? Yep, that was today. I wanted to participate in today’s Pantone link-up with The Modern Austen and wear something linen colored but my outfit just wasn’t doing it for me. Original plan? This top, untucked, with a linen (or oatmeal, as I prefer to refer to it) colored boyfriend cardigan and the brown pants. But the untucked top and the long cardigan just weren’t doing it for me. So, I tucked in the top. Nope, that just looked weird. So I swapped out the cardigan for the navy one. Better, but not great.

As a last resort I buttoned up the cardigan leaving the tie on the neck of the blouse sticking out. But now I just look lumpy.  Sigh. Win some, lose some.  This will definitely not be one of my favorite outfits of the month.

Speaking of which, Kelsey suggested that I start doing recaps of my outfits each month and tell which ones are my favorite. Since I’m not in the office tomorrow I will be sharing that information with you! The best part, you get to vote on YOUR favorite outfit from April! So, if you’re stopping by from Work Your Wardrobe or the Pantone link-up, I hope you stick around and share your opinion.
