Are you a multitasker??
I am, although I never know if that is a good thing or not.
Yesterday when I went outside to take my outfit photos, my phone rang.
I decided I could talk and take pictures. 
Meanwhile, I was also trying to dodge the workman working next door.
Nothing more weird than a bunch of workmen watching you take your own picture!
I think my multitasking was a success. 
I only got caught twice by the workmen and I had a relatively normal phone conversation-I think. 
(Shelley, you will have to weigh in on that, since I was talking to you)
I was going for the long over long look that I have been seeing in quite a few magazines lately.
This is a very comfortable look.
 I like the feminine lace like crochet sweater over the more masculine gingham.
The riding boots add balance to the gingham and the mullet skirt plays well off of the lace like look on top.

Are you a multitasker?
Or are you more of a tunnel vision type?

gingham shirt-F21
crochet sweater-CAbi
mullet skirt-Marshall's
boots-Anne Klein
necklaces-I honestly can't remember
earrings-Old Navy
phone-iPhone 4

LOL -- imagining the workmen getting quite a kick out of this.

All women are multitaskers and do it quite well...so those workmen were just jealous...they are only able to tackle one task at a time! Eat your heart out guys!
You look lovely in this outfit!

You are beautiful Brett- what a fab outfit! I love the crochet sweater and the skirt is fab! I'm an ok multitasker, getting better as my new job demands it!

I have a hard time not multitasking. There is too much to do during the day.

That outfit does look very comfy.

I'm a multi-tasker too. But sometimes I lose focus and then forget where I was with all of them. So, that's no good.

I've been hoping to see someone in the blogosphere give the long-over-long look a whirl ever since I saw a feature in Instyle. You pull it off beautifully.
I have a long vest I may now try to style over a maxi skirt.

Cute pictures!! Nice maxi outfit!
I used to be an excellent mutitasker...not so much anymore...too many senior moments! lol

Nice comfy outfit.

I can put my pants on, make coffee, and brush my teeth all at the same time. My life is so busy it's the only way I survive.

I'm definitely a multitasker! Have to be, love the long sweater over the mullet skirt! Everyone has been loving Mom's belt today :)

LyddieGal said...

Chic on the Cheap

I am a multi-tasker, if I don't have three plates spinning at a time I'm bored. These pictures are adorable, and so is your outfit! Love you in a long skirt, and that sweater is so beautiful. It looks like something I would live in during colder months.

Love this combination, my multi-tasking friend!

I think I'm actually a multislacker-- you know, slacking off on multiple things at once? hahahaha. I like this long over long look a lot. If it were me, I wouldn't have thought to wear a blouse. The extra bit of pattern is very chic.

Wow, I didn't have a clue you weren't giving me your undivided attention! But then again, the way I was rambling and venting, you could have put the phone down and done your whole photo shoot and I would never have been the wiser. Love the look...and the pics!

Kristin said...

As a working mama, I'm forced to multitask! Love your necklace!
