One of my rules to live by is always smell the milk before you pour it on to your cereal (not true. I actually rarely do this. Bart is the one who suffers from milk-paranoia in our family. Also, this is two days in a row where I’ve talked about cereal. How sad is my life?).
My other rule that I actually follow is that when Kayla asks me to do something, I do it (especially right now, a week after she agreed to not only do half the $5 gift guide, but also formatted all the pictures for me).
A few weeks ago, she asked if I’d participate in the first public round of Open to Interpretation, a series she’s been doing with Erica and Amy for a while, where they choose a picture and then put together an outfit that’s based (however loosely) on that picture. It’s good times.
This is the picture they picked for this time:
And. . . .here is what I wore (I know, the excitement is just about to kill you, right here sitting at your computer):
|Sweater: Old Navy, Striped Shirt: Old Navy,
Jeans: Target, Necklace: gift, Shoes: Landen
I couldn’t look at the camera, because there was a little child sitting on my bed making me laugh.
Sadly, both of my red pants were in the hamper, so I had to make do with regular jeans (more lies! I don’t own any red pants).
Both the shirt and the sweater are things that I wear very infrequently and don’t really like, but together? I was actually quite a fan. The best part of the outfit for me, though, was the necklace from my in-laws (they bought one for each of the daughter and daughters-in-law in Venice last year) – the picture doesn’t make it very visible, but in real life, I thought it really kept the whole thing from being too blah.
