Flowy Skirt + Gust of Wind = Bad Idea

Was it a windy day today?  No, it wasn't.  Was it windy as I was walking into Target on my lunch break?  For some reason, yes, it was, and we nearly had a wardrobe malfunction.  Fortunately, as the big gust of wind tore into my skirt, my hands were free and I was able to keep myself clothed!

Today, I was trying lots of new and different things.  I'm not a big scarf girl, but I picked up this cute scarf yesterday and decided to try it out.  I knotted it around my neck the only way I knew how and it looked . . . well, not that great.  I got to work and started reading today's blogs and what did I find?!?! An amazing tutorial from the beautiful Linley! So, I used one of her methods that allowed me to hide the ruffles on my cardigan.  Not that the ruffles aren't cute, because they totally are.  But I thought that ruffles and the printed scarf were a bit much.  I did not do the scarf justice! But I'll learn. =)

I'm also feeling like maybe I'm learning from Tiffany by branching out a bit in the color department.  I'm also using her little trick of tying a knot in the back of my shirt to make it fit the way I wanted it to. I didn't like the way the shirt looked untucked. It just looked messy.  When I tucked it in, I didn't like the way it laid against my post-baby belly (yes, eight months later, I still have that belly!). But then I thought of the knot and . . . voila!! I was happy.

So, thank you, Linley and Tiffany for helping to make my outfit work today!

This is a better shot of the shoes.

I must say... these pictures weren't taken until after work.  That is why I'm looking down, so that you can't see the washed out barely there makeup or the not-so-cute hair. Oh, well, we do what we can when we can!
