Day 21

Welcome back to Second Chance Saturday!  You've probably already guessed which outfit I picked to restyle.  Day 13, welcome back.

Now, even though we didn't like this, we have to be polite.  We don't want to hurt it's feelings.  We'll start with the good.

The Good:
  • I love the idea of this sweater.  It's a unique color, a beautiful knit, and an interesting shape.

The Bad: 
  • This outfit doesn't provide enough visual interest.  The colors are all too similar, and it comes off as very bland.
  • The individual pieces of clothing don't fit together.  The turtleneck detracts from the cool neckline of the sweater, and the round toe of the oxfords with straight leg jeans make my feet look really weird.
  • My chandelier earrings compete with the collar of the sweater.
  • There is something wrong with the proportions of the outfit. 

For the last few days, I have been experimenting.  This outfit hasn't just received a second chance, it's received a third and forth chance as well (although the 3rd didn't get photographed...but don't're not missing anything.)  I've pretty much tried on every one of my 30 x 30 articles of clothing trying to figure out what works.  Honestly, I can't figure it out.  This is a cry for help. 


Solution #1:

  • The brown boots are a huge improvement over the oxfords.
  • I chose a brown undershirt instead of a blue to tie in the brown.
  • Something is still just not right.  What type of accesories would work with this? 
  • Let's face it: this hat is a little bit ridic.

Solution #2:
  • Again, I think that the boots are an improvement.
  • The open neck shirt underneath the sweater draws more attention to the neckline.
  • I like how pairing this sweater with black makes it look more grey.
  • I tried to accessorize. either of these outfits deserve to be Day 21?  You decide!  Vote below.  I voted.  I didn't really.  But I thought if I said so, someone might give me one of those stickers.

Never mind.  Don't vote.  It didn't work out.  Better luck next time.


  1. I really liked the last one the best. Love you!

    ps..I was thinking about the 'cousin campout' (I named it, not very creative but it'll work) today, we should try to do it this summer, like maybe July or August? Also, places? We have to pick somewhere in between, since Jess will be living in UT by then I was thinking maybe somewhere near Vegas or Zions National Park? Ok think about it. xoxo

  2. I like the brown boots from the first pic, but the black shirt and headband from the second. . .and I loved Doug's post :) What a keeper!
