day 15 // a case of the blahs

I was having an "icky" day today and if it were under normal circumstances, then I would have never taken an outfit photo (shhh don't tell my blog readers!). I think it's because I couldn't find a tank to wear underneath this sheer blouse, so I improvised with a nude coloured spanx tank. Do you know how uncomfortable spanx are? With jeans on? At the office for 8 hours? Yeah, definite case of the outfit blahs.

Do you ever plan an outfit and then end up feeling uncomfortable in it?

Hopefully the rain stops and I can take outfit photos outside again tomorrow.
HA! Who am I kidding? I live in Raincouver.

  1. Oh totally know what you mean, but you know what? No one else ever does! I love this quirky outfit, the print, the pin, the colors! It's so fun! Hope you feel a little cheerier soon :)

    Oh and I love "Raincouver" that's a lot better than Vantucky, guess Vancouver, WA is full of hicks? Blegh anyway only a few more months..

  2. That happens to me frequently, I plan outfits but just end up wanting to change to feel more comfortable. Love that blazer though! I've been looking to buy more blazers..maybe a cream/pale pink one!

  3. In reply to your comment..hmm I would say that Black Swan was worth watching I guess? haha I really don't know. It was nothing like anything I've watched before. It was thrilling, very suspenseful and I was definitely mind-boggled. It was just super strange. Natalie Portman was a really good actress. If you do watch it, you must watch it with a friend. I do not recommend you watch by yourself. LOL!

  6. Your expression in the second photo cracks me up. It's like you're contemplating how uncomfortable you are and thinking "Hmm Spanx tank...yeah, no."

  7. That happens to me but more so with makeup. Like today I have bright bright bright blue eye shadow on and at work I looked in the mirror and thought, "What was I thinking???" lol It just doesn't go with what I'm wearing today!

    I love the flower with the leopard print! Very pretty!

  8. oh ya, of course. If it's really bad, I buy a new outfit - i work in a clothing store - though that's not a great habit to get into, I know!
    LOVE the look of this oufit on you, though.

  9. The uncomfortable outfit does happen sometimes, have to say. But in your case, although not feeling fab you do look lovely! I like the colour of that blazer.

    I find RW&Co and Smart set have great camisoles in lots of colours that I wear under sheer items, they might be a little more comfy!

  12. Urgh, I hate those days when you leave the house unsatisfied with something outfit-related. Really though, you paired the brooch amazingly with the blazer and the leopard print top. I am loving these daily posts! Can you continue your challenge for March, pretty please?

  14. It certainly doesn't show that you look uncomfortable, you look great! Loving the daily blog updates, although I know how much work goes into them!

    P.S. do you have naturally curly hair or do you use a curling iron? It's gorgeous!
