one of those days

Do you ever just have one of those days where everything feels off? I've been battling a cold for the past few days and I forgot how much these things WIPE you out. Mentally. Emotionally. Physically.

I rolled out of bed this morning, fresh from a deep Nyqil sleep, threw this outfit on (in hopes to recreate this outfit) and ended up feeling uncomfortable all day in it.

I actually have lots of days like this (more than I would like to admit, actually). I usually tend to not document them on here, but figured I would own up to it -- an outfit flop. There. I said it! We're only human, right? It happens.

But...

To see how a lady like jacket like this should be worn, check out this little lady. She did it right.

And now, sweatpants are calling my name.

Jacket: Tweed suit jacket, Urban Outfitters
Blouse: Polka dot sheer blouse, Therapy in SF
Shorts: Jean cut off shorts, vintage Levis
Boots: Black suede over the knee boots, Topshop

  1. The blouse is stunning! If it wasn't -10 degrees in Toronto I would be dying to wear it!

  9. Man, your outfit flop would be an outfit-win for me...
    I often go "gee, this doesn't work at all actually" when I catch a glimpse of myself halfway through a working day, I hate when that happens.

  11. Hate those days... But I've found it usually has more to do with me than with the outfit (on those days, I even feel uncomfortable in my favourite outfits, so).

    Anyway, I think your outfit looks really good!

  14. You look gorgeous despite not feeling quite yourself. Feel better!

    I always struggle with looks that don't feel worthy of documentation, but I think it's honest to show even those that aren't our favorites. Well done!

  20. I like the attempt! I think it would lovely with darker jeans! For me, that's what's off-putting.

    But you look lovely, as always! I wish I had hair like yours!

  22. Oh I cant believe this is a flop for you! I saw this yesterday and then decided to wear jeans shorts (I made them last night haha) because I liked it so much and I just posted an outfit picture and everything!.

    I dont think you ever get it wrong! Even those Jodpur things you linked in your post the other day looked good on you!

    But I hope you feel better :)

  24. Awww..I know EXACTLY how you feel. When my schedule gets really busy in the Spring and Fall I always just throw on whatever's around ...and then I feel guilty for not dressing up. But if I do, I'm uncomfortable! That's why I like to set time aside just for dressing up. Or planning the days ahead so I'm prepared :]

    I hope you feel better! [Hugs]
