hello gorgeous

First off, thanks for all your great comments on yesterday's music fest & for reminding me that I really do need to get into the habit of sharing my new favorite artists/songs/albums more often! Duly noted.
{ What I Wore: sunglasses c/o Silvano // Old Navy tee & booties // Citizens of Humanity jeans }
Lately I have been thinking about having to go back to "re-creating" my looks on the weekends. Seeing that the sun is saying good-bye earlier & earlier & that my boss doesn't think taking photos of one's outfit is a good enough reason for leaving work early, I am left with no other option. 

In fact, this is a look that I wore last week to work, carefully laid out on my desk chair after work (when I got home at dusk), & put it back on to document it this weekend. And in doing so I had a funny observation.
Somedays I could put on a potato sack & feel good about myself. You know those days when you are just on, feeling fierce & fabulous.

Other days I can pull out all my favorites, the forgiving jeans, the top that accentuates in all the right places, look in the mirror & just feel "meh" about it all.
I'm not sure if it is the barometric pressure, my sign being in retrograde, the cycle of the moon or what, but somedays I just feel "cuter" than others.

When I wore this outfit last week, I got dressed in the morning & felt totally boom-shacka-lacka. In fact, I was really feeling the boyfriend jeans + bootie combo!
And then putting it on again Saturday, I was just so "blah"!
Same outfit, nothing fancy.
So now I'm curious, do you have "cute" & "un-cute" days too... for no apparent reason?

  1. Love this look. And I absolutely have days of not feeling good or feeling amazing no matter what I put on! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Definitely! I have "ugly days" as I call them where nothing seems to feel right on me, I can't seem to get my hair/makeup in a way I like, etc. I hate those days! I think you look darling in this, regardless of how you felt on your 'off' day :)

  3. I don't know if this is your answer, but it would be for me: Even though I wear my clothes multiple times, I never wear exactly the same outfit twice. So there's something exciting about wearing every outfit because I've never worn it before. I've had to "recreate" outfits a couple times and it's not quite as exciting just because the newness has worn off. Maybe that could be it?

  4. I can completely relate! There are definitely days when I'm just not feeling it, even in one of my favorite outfits!

  5. Love that shirt and you have such a pretty blog! Hope you are having a good week and I think everyone has days where they feel cuter than others. It's normal.

  6. I know what you mean about the sun- I tend to run to the park around the corner at lunch and take pic's with my self-timing camera. Of course if you look at my blog the last few weeks this hasn't happened. This is a cute outfit and I get what your saying about feeling *meh*. However, I was shocked these booties came from Old Navy! I so seriously need to go there and soon!!

  8. What a cute look! I def have those 'no matter what - uncute days' My hair will refuse to cooperate and no amount of makeup will help.. sigh.

  9. I definitely have days where I just hate my outfit/hair/makeup and everything just seems off. Then there's days where I feel so pulled together and fabulous.

  10. I LOVE that shirt! I didn't buy it because it felt weird around my chest. This looks well, gorgeous on you!


  11. I definitely have those days! It can be the same exact outfit but just doesn't have the same feel.

  12. I have those cute and uncute days too... a lot of times they happen in the same day! I'll be loving my whole look all day at work, and then get home and go to take pictures and I am just NOT feeing it. Anyways, you are totally cute today! I love the boyfriend jeans with booties, I actually wore it this weekend :)

  13. Totally know what you mean about throwing a potato sack on and somehow feeling okay with because you're just comfortable!

    Cute outfit!

  14. I LOVE this look! You look so cute and comfy! Stripes are just the best!


  15. I definitely have those days! Of course, the worst days of all are when you feel all super fierce fashionista and then the pics don't do it justice. Ugh! The worst! Anyway - I wonder if you just felt that way because you had already worn the outfit before? Perhaps the novelty of a new outfit combo had already worn off? (PS love that shirt!)

  16. Such a great casual look! I'm getting a little sad that the sun is setting earlier and earlier too. It definitely makes it tough to get those photos in before it's too dark. Totally swooning over your boots - they're a must-have for fall!

  17. Oh for sure! Some days are definitely just blah and a half for no good reason at all. But you look super cute...love the bootie and bf jeans, and what an awesome tee :)


  18. I totally have cute and uncute days! I think its a girl thing. But how can you feel uncute in a top that says "Hello Gorgeous?!" It compliments you as you put it on and look in the mirror! ;-)


  19. Haha, I totally was thinking that I was going around telling everyone else compliments all day, but I guess I should show myself some love too! xx

  20. Uh, totally agreed! My cute days usually coincide with great hair days, and vice versa. Isn't it weird how sometimes cute casual looks can make you feel more fabulous than super dressed up ones?! I don't get it. Love this outfit. Wearing comfy clothes can be soo relieving!
