How the weather forced me to wear this outfit:

How I wanted to wear this outfit:
12.28.10d
12.28.10c
12.28.10e

Alright so yes, I might be wearing the same shirt I wore yesterday. It’s just so pretty and I was still feeling romantic, so I put it back on this morning. If wearing a shirt twice in one week is a crime, then lock me up. My one call will be to Loft. To bring me more shirts to wear over and over again.

I also wanted to wear just this shirt with my skirt but Texas has apparently decided that it’s winter and I couldn’t go without a jacket. One day the weather will do what I say and coordinate with my closet, until then I must comply.

Also, as you can tell my shirt has MAJOR static cling. Even after taping multiple dryer sheets to my body, it still clings. Seriously, nothing worked. What can I say? Cute clothes love me. I just can’t keep them off of me.

    oh, I have that same blouse in a dusty blue! I wore it Christmas Eve to a family thing and got so many compliments. My 2 year old cousin gave me the best compliment, though, when she rubbed her chocolatey hands all over it…

    I have a date with a stain stick sometime soon.

  4. oh my gosh I have that same skirt and I'm wearing it on NYE! I also paid $7 for it (one of the 2 things I caved in and bought during the 30×30 challenge)…I say it was worth the elimination πŸ™‚

  6. Static cling's the worst! πŸ™‚ I can't wait until the weather warms up here in Minnesota so I can wear my cotton dresses again. Perhaps I should just let the static at the hem just travel all the way up my leg, modesty be damned? I'll be wearing tights, promise! Hmmm. Perhaps not. πŸ™‚

    The shirt and skirt alone with the tights is a genius combo and the jacket does make it different. The static cling is a little strange but it adds a different, interesting texture at the same time. Is that weird?

    I love your tights! Do you mind letting me know how good the quality is? I wear black/grey/brown tights almost everyday to work in the winter. I get them at walmart or target and they seem to tear/get runs in them after only a few wears! I'm looking for a better brand that's still affordable. Thanks!!

  27. I like it with blazer. And look on the bright side: at least you didn't have to wear a down coat past your knees and layer two pairs of tights (both of which I had to do this morning after our big snowstorm in NYC).

    My tights are Maroon from We Love Colors. And I like the quality of WLC — they are pretty tough and very thick. I also like Hue, you can find this brand at Macy's or Anthro.

    I just bought that blazer on clearance from Target. I haven't figured out how to wear it without feeling like I'm livin' in the 80s, British, or a 40-year-old teacher. I think it may be a little too long for me.

    On a more upbeat note, I've been following your blog for a few months, and I think every day I show my friend your outfits with an "Ooh, I love this!"

    Well I like this outfit both ways! And I think the static-y-ness of the shirt actually looks kind of cool. I have very similar plum-colored tights of my own that I have yet to break out this season. Better get on that!

    You're lucky that you just had to add a blazer! We just got 20 inches of snow in New York, which is really putting a damper on my ability to wear cute shoes. πŸ™ I love this outfit though!

  56. I don't know if it would help but you could always try a cami under your shirt for a little less cling. That shirt is so worth wearing twice in a week.

    Two words: STATIC GUARD. I never needed it until this holiday season, when I purchased the cutest dress that loved me back…a bit too much. Static Guard smells all chemically (?) at first, but that goes away after a couple of minutes. It really does the trick. Good luck, lady!

    I wore the same shirt I wore yesterday today too, haha.. Mines black and it's a boat neck 3/4 length sleeve. I wore it both times under a sweater, so It's not that noticeable. I'm more worried about my skirt. I wore a black skirt yesterday and a black skirt today, but they're different. haha.. Oh the things we worry about…

  72. Loving that shirt just as much as I did last time! And those tights! We might be tights twins, but I;m no sure if we have the same shade or not. You're perfectly colorful.

    If you're looking to combat static I totally recommend hair spray, specially for the inside of the clothing. It works wonders!!

    I wear a slip under skirts and dresses 95% of the time, even if they already have a lining.
