Top* Ann Taylor, thrifted;
Skirt: Ann Taylor, thrifted;
Tights: Hue;
Boots: Target;
Headband: Target;
Trench: Banana Republic, gift from mom.

This is the story of a girl who:

-  was going for a Blair Waldorf-Meets-Alice-in-Wonderland look in her 18th outfit for the 30 for 30 Remix Challenge;
- wanted to wear her neon orange tights that she got on super sale over the summer, and has been patiently waiting to pull them out ever since;
- felt pretty darn perfect until she got to her usual outdoor photo spot;
- and nearly got blown away by the wind storm;
- and then realized how un-photogenic this outfit looked when it was mussed;
- nearly froze to death because she has no idea what 'freezing' is until it comes because of her town's (usually) mild winters;
- is probably going to get this skirt altered after the Remix Challenge because it is now way too big;
- found a red wall during the last five minutes at the park and realized it would just have to do.

Yeesh. Hoping tomorrow will be a better day, outfit-wise, weather-wise and photo-wise.

*I'm swapping the striped Ralph Lauren jacket out of the Remix Challenge for this white top because I need more tops for layering. Call me a cheater, cheater pumpkin eater all you want, but wearing my plaid shirt with everything was going to get really ridiculous.*


  1. I love the monochromatic thing you've got going on here! And wind is my biggest enemy right now! Ugh, I'm tired of having to pick my hair out of my lipgloss!

  2. Despite the weather, you look great. I would never have thought about orange tights until now :)

  3. Sorry that the weather didn't cooperate with you, but I love this outfit! I think it is so pretty and ladylike and the orange tights works so perfectly with it because I almost didn't even notice them until you mentioned them in your post :) (shows how observant I am!)

    Hope the weather gets a bit warmer for you - I hate the cold too!!
