So it's back to my closet, armed with ideas and inspiration from those fabulous ladies and their blogs I viewed, to try using what I have on hand. First go round did not go well. Hey we all have those moments, right? I hope.
Here is my first attempt at dressing fashionable in these blistery cool days...
No, No, No
I had the right idea pairing leather with plaid. Very cute, but somewhere between the oversized, hand-me-down skirt, hanging scarf and mid-calf boots I ended going hobo-esque. Help me. I did wear this out. Just like this. I'm laughing right now because the cool mug is not helping.
After viewing the pictures. I thought, "maybe ditching the scarf would help".
Getting Better, but Not there...what's the Deal?

Finally, I had to accept that the skirt was too big and made the overall look appear sloppy. So I traded this skirt with another that I like but have to suck it in to make it work.
What do you think? Better?
Well great, I just won't eat for the rest of the day. (Perhaps it's time I get back into an exercise routine?)
This May Be It

The bigger skirt, coupled with the scarf - No, No, No!
Frustrated with my skirt debacle and the need to suck it all in, I changed the bottoms entirely and finished the day out like this...
I'm Going To Eat!

This is by no means my first fashion fail and I know it won't be my last, but that's how I learn and where the fun comes in! Hope you enjoyed sharing in my hard-knock learnings and if you have any suggestions or tips, please share! Help me get out of this rut.
Thanks for reading!
