A Blue Cardigan & Shop My Closet Week 15


Welcome back to another Style Perspectives!  I loved all the spring sweaters from last week.  Thanks so much to everyone who linked up and joined in the fun, and a special shout out to Deena for creating our collage.



Today we're joining Christy for her "signature look" - a cardigan, tshirt, jeans and a statement necklace.  Be sure to head to The Blended Blog to see how she's styling it, and find out who the top two looks were from last week.

So.......do you ever have an outfit idea that looks good in your head, but when you put it on and take pictures, it doesn't turn out so great?  That happened to me this week.  And then it started to rain, and I ran out of time, so I'm stuck with this look.  Which is why I'm not a fashion blogger, but a blogger who writes about fashion sometimes.





It would have looked better with white Converse or sandals, and maybe a darker blue cardigan.  And what about the tree that appears to be growing out of my back?  It looks like I'm sprouting green peacock feathers!  Oh well, there's always next week.



It's week 15 of Shop My Closet, and I'm calling this "collage of the Tom's", since apparently I wore them every day.  Not sure what happened, since I don't really like them THAT much. Apparently, I need to get more creative with my shoes.

  1. Your varsity cardigan is so cute! I'm loving all of the layered looks from the week too! My Tom's are always by the back door so I'm wearing them more often than not also.

  2. I love the shades of this outfit and the cool cardigan, but mostly the greenery and I can now picture where you are in your backyard because I'm a snoop.

  5. It happens to me all the time. I usually don't realize that I don't like it until I see myself in the full length meal... when I am already at work! With that being said I love the color of your cardi!

  9. Hi Lana! You are my first stop on my Blended Blog "get to know you." I feel like it happens all the time when an outfit doesn't work in photos like I thought it did in real life. Then I wonder if it really looked like that and I just didn't know? Haha. I like your outfit, though! I think the blue cardigan compliments your blond hair!

    1. Thanks Whitney. I do like the color, but I think I'm better in brights.

  10. I like the blues and whites of your outfit! I think it works!

    But I know what you mean about things looking quite different in my head than when I put them actually on. Happens all the time! That's why I usually try my work outfits on on the weekend to make sure everything works, especially when it's a new combo.

  15. I like your varsity cardigan. I know what you mean about outfits looking better your head - that always happens to me for work - and then I end up running late and frantically trying to pick something else. Have fun in Vegas!
