WIWW & The No-Makeup Makeup Look

I tried to get dressed this week, despite the ridiculous flooding in our area.  Naturally I missed a few days, because I doubt you wanted to see my oldest clothes soaked with muddy water and other gunk (we’ll leave it at that, because I prefer not to think about what else could be in the mud and water).  Besides, my clothes were the last thing I was thinking about.

That said, I did manage to snap a few photos.

T-shirt & Thrifted Skirt - Old Navy

This photo was taken in the beginning of the day.  I was exhausted.  I don’t know why, but I guess it was a rough day.

So I took a nap, woke up and traded the skirt for a pair of jeans, braided my bangs (even though you can’t tell) and I look more alive.

Jeans and T-shirt with Braided Bangs - WIWW

T-shirt = Old Navy,  Skirt (in first photo) = Old Navy (thrifted), Jeans = Kohl’s

Kohl's casual cotton dress - WIWW

I also wore this dress my mom gifted me (again).  It’s terribly comfortable and perfect for summer.

The entire outfit, top to bottom, is Kohl’s.

White Shirt, Jeans, Circle Scarf - WIWW

Jeans = same as above, Shirt = hand-me-down, Shoes = please forgive me, things are muddy!

Ok, girls.  I have issues with circle scarves.  I can’t seem to wear them right!

Although I love this circle scarf and I admire them on other women, they just don’t seem to look right on me.

Circle Scarf worn 2 ways

I tried it both long and wide and I think they both look kinda funny.  I wore it anyway, but…


Comments and guidance appreciated.

chevron striped maxi skirt and tank

Last week, I said I’d like to figure out a way to wear this maxi skirt more.  Someone suggested a solid black or chocolate brown tank.

So, I tried it out.

I’m just not one for wearing tank tops.  I have nothing against them, but I’m not super comfortable in them unless it like 95 degrees outside.

So I added my chambray shirt and knotted it at the waist.  I never do that, but I thought I’d live it up a little.

What do you think?

Yay or Nay??

Now, I follow Pretty Shiny Sparkly blog.  She is a master of products and makeup.  This week she did a video on the No Makeup Makeup Look, so I figured I was good and qualified to do this one.

    I think the knotted shirt is so cute! I’m gonna have to try that look (when I lose a few more pounds). And your head shot is beautiful.

    Love the skirt in the “tired” photo. You have such a nice slim waist — those are the only people who can wear such skirts. I know, I’ve tried them on… And I feel the same way about tank tops. The only place I wear them is in my own back yard to get some sun. Although you look great in them!

    I really like the outfit you got from your mom! I love circle scarves too, but I always seem to wear them wrong. It frustrates me because the whole idea is that you don’t have to tie them a certain way. Or is that not the idea? Maybe that’s my problem! : )
