Outfit Fail

Casual Clothes · Casual Friday

Ever put on an outfit and then realize, after the fact, that it is just NOT working for you? Yeah, that was this one.

I tried to emulate this casual outfit that seems to be made of simple pieces: button up, sweater, scarf, jeans and flats.

Sweater – Old Navy (similar) | Shirt – The Limited (similar) | Scarf – Kohl’s (similar) | Jeans – Old Navy (same) | Shoes – J. Crew Factory (similar)

I think, though, that is one of those cases where it really comes down to the fit of the individual pieces. Especially, in this outfit, the length of the white shirt. Mine is just too short. Maybe if I had this one it would have balanced out the squareness of the sweater.

Or maybe if I hadn’t worn my jeggings and instead stuck to regular jeans I wouldn’t feel like a toothpick with a marshmallow on top.

Either way, I think this is an outfit that I will be trying again but with other pieces. What do you think?

    I think this looks fine (and not marshmallowey!), but I know what you mean. Sometimes an outfit seems like such a good idea in my head, then I see it in the full-length mirror when I get to the office and have no idea what I was thinking.
