What I Wore Wednesday - Patriotic Nerd

What I Wore Wednesday is being brought to you today by yesterday's outfit! =)

Shirt, Skirt & Cardi: My Sister's (Without her, I'd have nothing worth wearing!)
Shoes: www.6pm.com
Belt: Thrifted
Bracelet & Earrings: Target

I really wish I could figure out how to get good shots of details! The thing that makes this outfit super cool is the belt. And you can hardly see it.

Here's the reason you're getting yesterday's outfit. My eyes have been itchy and bloodshot since Saturday! I don't know why. I'm guessing it's the pollen or whatever it is that causes allergies this time of year. Anyways, I have decided to give them a little break and wear my glasses.  What's that? I can post a picture of myself in my glasses? Well, I don't know... It's not that I don't like them. I just think I look like a bit of a nerd.  And in today's outfit, it's a bit of a patriotic nerd.

Okay, stop begging, I'll show you already! lol

Navy tank, striped cardi & khaki skirt: Target
Ring: Premier Jewelry Designs
Shoes: Gift from a co-worker


Aren't these shoes adorable?? My co-worker couldn't think of anything to style them with, so she passed them on to me! The only thing I didn't consider when wearing them to work today is that because they don't have any sort of a strap, they make the "flip flop" sound that can be sooooo irritating in an office!  Oh, well, lesson learned!

Look at you in your glasses! You look so cute :)

I can't believe your co-worker couldn't figure out how to style those shoes...I think you need to send her a picture of each and every outfit you pair those shoes with. Love them!

Your glasses are adorable! You don't look like a nerd at all. I call it studious!

Your skirt from Wednesday is awesome!

Wow! Check you out, skinny minnie! I am loving this first look. (Another one to copy.) The skirt fits you perfectly, and yes, I can see the belt! Love that, too!

You know I'm a fiend for stripes...I need to go (back) to Target and check for that cardigan. I'm jealous of how cute you look in those specs...I would definitely work them into more outfits if I were you!

You have a great blog, and some brilliant pictures. I think a compliment is in order. You look stunning in all your pics, you have confidence and you look very feminine in your outfits. Keep up the excellent work.
Take care.

Cute outfits and sorry about your eyes. I have the same white tee you are borrowing from your sister!
Those red slipper shoes are very cute.
As far as detail photos just take a close-up photo of the outfit or the item in question. I just move closer to the camera on tripod for this. Or you can take one of your full body shots save a copy and crop the 2nd one to zoom in.

Being a nerd isn't a bad thing. I think it's quite sexy myself!

Isn't it always great to get awesome hand me downs!? Super cute shoes but I would hate that 'flip flop' sound! :-/
