Day 19 (3 + 18 +9 + 20)

3 AA Charcol Cardigan + 18 UO grey, blue, black and purple sheer tank + 9 black lace skirt + 20 high heeled docs =

Day 19 (3 + 18 +9 + 20)

Ehhhhhh. I always love the way this skirt looks when I see other girls wear it with the blouse tucked in. But I think...not so much on me. I think it's much more flattering with the blouse out. Lesson learned.

Day 19 (3 + 18 +9 + 20)

I had an impromptu and brief but exciting discussion yesterday with someone about a new career opportunity I hope works out. It would be a totally new direction for me, and I'd have to start over from the bottom, but I'd be doing something I love and working in a field where my hobbies and passions would actually contribute to my success instead of being just something I enjoy in my free time. Wish me luck!

Oh Erin, that sounds wonderful! I hope it works out for you and I want to hear more about it!

By the way, lady - nice legs! You really do have great legs and that skirt is beautiful on you. I tend to not tuck things in much so I know how you feel about that.

I totally get what you mean with the skirt-- I tried it the other day and I wasn't feeling it. Nevertheless, you look awesome!

i think the shirt looks great tucked in. if you added a chunky belt, it would look like a dress. super cute on you! congrats and good luck BTW!

Katie said...

Wishing you lots of luck!!!

I think this looks great - but I understand the way you feel. I actually own two of these skirts but find myself rarely wearing them because I don't think they look very good on me though I LOVE them on everyone else!

Best of luck Erin! I think this looks good! Isn't it close to something I picked out for Paperdolls? Hmmm, maybe not but it seems familiar.

Oooh, exciting! Good luck! I always feel weird about showing an elastic waist too, but it looks fine on you! It makes your legs look really long!

Brittney said...

good luck! seriously. starting from the "bottom" is totally worth it if you love the direction it's headed.
annnnd i think i need a pair of boots like yours...you get so much quality use out of those puppies. and also? your legs look a miiiiile long here.
