A Hot Mess in a Striped Sweater

I, and my outfits, have been photographing like a hot mess lately.  Take this outfit, for example:



I look like a hot mess in a striped sweater.  My skirt (vintage, thrifted) is crooked and my navy tights (Nordstrom) look black.  I have no complaints about my sweater (American Eagle Outfitters via TJ Maxx) or my booties (Nine West via TJ Maxx) though, so that’s something.  And my hair is respectably big today, so I guess that’s something as well. 

I think it's because I've been distracted with work.  But, no excuses.  Instead, I'm going to embrace it; that's right, folks, big hair and crooked skirts is just how I roll.

Happy Wednesday, Everyone!

  1. I absolutely love those booties, and I didn't even notice your skirt was off. I love that sweater, too.

  2. Ummm...so cute. Your crooked skirt is part of the charm. And that sweater is fantastic--you'd think it would do the opposite of its flattering ways, and make things look broad, but that's so not the case. The stripy optical illusion just makes the waist look tiny!

  3. I'm starting to think this crooked skirt thing is an epidemic. Love that sweater, though!

  4. I probably wouldn't have even noticed the skirt being off! LOVE that sweater! Not sure what to call it, but the liney-optical illusion thingy (lol) is such a cute little detail!

  5. I didn't even notice any of those things until you mentioned them. That sweater is awesome. The seam across the chest is a really neat detail!

    If it makes you feel any better, I've been photographing like a hot mess lately, too. I have no idea what's going on -- maybe it's the phase of the moon or something -- but I keep coming off looking faintly drunk. Not an attractive look, let me tell you.

  6. Call yourself a hot mess if you must, but I'm going to call you fashionable! I think you're the only one who knows about your skirt, and it all looks quite nicely put-together to me. Although if I stare at your sweater for too long I get a little dizzy, haha.

  7. I think you look just hot, no mess. We can be so hard on ourselves, you know? Your booties are the best!

  10. I love your red striped top, so adorable! The vintage skirt is lovely and looks demure and ladylike. That's the thing about skirts, my pockets always ended up at the back.

  12. A hot mess? what? I don't see it. I do, however, LOVE that striped sweater. especially because of the neckline break in design.

  14. You crack me up every time, girl! I don't think you look like a hot mess at all - I really love your sweater and if your skirt was crooked, the photo doesn't show it! Oh, and great booties (as always) :)
