What NOT to Wear

Ever had one of those mornings when you just throw on whatever is sitting on the stool in your closet, or on the floor for that matter?
That is what this outfit is all about.
A total mish-mash that quite frankly doesn't make the cut.
 Pants are from day before,
 cardi was on the floor,
 tank was first one I grabbed from a drawer.
Clearly, I just grabbed every blue accessory I had in the closet
 and threw it on.
I DO NOT suggest doing this.
So this is a tale of unsuccessful dressing. 
 Lesson learned: Put a little thought into it and check a mirror before you leave the house!
I hope you have learned something from my mistake and dress beautifully tomorrow!

Does it ruin your day when you realize what you are wearing isn't really working out,
 or do you just brush it off and go on without another thought?

cardi/tank-Loft
cargos-Banana Republic
flats-Anne Klein
ring-ebay
bracelet-Stein Mart
necklace-Old Navy
belt-Nordstrom Rack

Ha! Good question! Doesn't ruin my day - however I feel more productive when I feel well dressed.

Thanks for stopping by at looking forward to following you

Ha, you're so funny! I'm wearing a similar outfit that just didn't turn out as expected. Plus, I forgot to wear a slip. lol It's not ruining my day, but I am trying to stay at my desk, so no one sees more than they need to! ;)

I LOVE this look!!!!!!!!
My favorite trend-setters and outfits are from unplanned places. You remind me of Sarah J Parker! She looks like she dressed in the dark and always comes out perfectly!
I LOve ThiS!!1!!1!!!

Well, whatever the case, I LOVE that pop of pink and the pattern on the cardigan. And the pants look so comfy!

I love to have my outfits planned and ready, but life happens. You gotta just go with it!

I swear like, EVERY day is one of those days for me. I just grab whatever's clean (or sometimes, whatever's not clean...oops) and throw it on, and I'm good to go. It definitely doesn't get me down if I don't like what I'm wearing, UNLESS it's the opposite of my usual routine and I spent a million hours picking out an outfit and it just doesn't work. That's just discouraging.

Anyway, I actually quite like what you're wearing here. Maybe just a quick change of accessories and I'd give it an A+!

Love the cardi, even if it isn't comfortable with its companions.

That was me today- I thought the outfit was great in theory but in person it just wasn't happening (to be posted later this week). It made me feel blah all day :( I think you still look better than most people do when they're trying! Great colours!

I think this outfit is completely fine. Just taking off a couple of the blue things and that's all. Really super cute. You're way harder on yourself than you need be. Say'n.
