30for30: Twenty


I really love this outfit. And it fits perfectly into today - rainy and gloomy. Chris called me shortly after he got to work this morning to let me know severe thunderstorms and tornado warnings were heading my way. So I spent the majority of the morning watching the news and praying that I wasn't going to have to drag Maeby into the bathtub (which she hates) and keep her in the tub while I maneuver a mattress or heavy blanket on top of us (which she would have not liked). That would have been a nightmare. Thankfully we only had heavy rain and strong winds. 

When everything passed on, I got ready for my day and this outfit was born. I hadn't pre-planned this, I just kind of stared into the closet and eventually walked out with the skirt and cardigan. I'm learning that this skirt is super versatile. It may be making several appearances between 21 and 30. I even topped it off with a Sydney-esq inspired bun.

Cardigan: Liz Claiborne
Skirt: NY&Co
Tights: Target
Socks: We Love Color
Boots: Steve Madden




Temperatures are continually cooling down as the day goes on (yay!), so I may end up adding a scarf and jacket to this ensemble.

I've been dying to try the Sydney bun, but I'm afraid my face is too round!

Love the greys and the cute bun! Hope the weather doesn't get worse...although the thought of you and your boxer dog in the tub did make me giggle a bit. :D

Cute outfit. I tried to do the Sydney bun once, but it didn't work out so well. I need to try it again!

Mandy said...

I'm glad you're okay! I don't know how I would deal with living in a region where there is a threat of tornadoes. I've never seen one, but I'm deathly afraid of them!

This outfit is super cute! The gray and lavender are so gorgeous together. Glad you didn't get blown away! We have 2.5" of rain coming our way tonight. It should be pretty nuts.

What a cute stay-at-home outfit!! Sexy but comfy. Not easy to do, but you did it.

& yeah, bathtubs & mattress' are a part of my life during certain seasons, too. But I love the South, always will.

Linda said...

Getting prepared to drag your dog into the bathtub and maneuver a mattress on top of you both sounds like a nightmare. I'm glad the storm passed.
That skirt looks super versatile. I'm surprised it is not already a wardrobe workhorse.

Wowza! I love how you wore that cardi as a top, all buttoned down and tucked in! That skirt really is super versatile... and with those amazing ribbed tights, your legs look a mile long! :)

I love this! It's so cute. I have similar cable knit leggings I need to remix again... yours are inspiring!

Also, I'll take earthquakes over tornadoes any day.

The blogger bun looks super cute on you! I love the side-swept bangs you did in the front. This outfit is very flattering on you. I like the muted colors - purple and gray are perfect for a gloomy day. Glad to hear you and your dog didn't get whisked away to Oz by any tornadoes this morning!

Kate said...

You look so cute with the bun! And I love the grey and purple together, those tights seriously make your legs look 2394857 miles long.
