The Uninvited Guest

Cardigan, J.Crew. Blouse, Tommy. Skirt, belt, and pumps, Banana Republic. Yellow necklace, thrifted. Pearl necklace, shady little shop in Paris.
News flash: I have a hidden talent. No, not the footfist thing, that's old hat. I can predict Oscar winners like it's Roger Ebert's business and last night was no different (what up, six years straight!). I can also stuff my face into a coma, complete with recurring nightmares, new nightmares, and a nightmarish bloat. The latter has decided to overstay its welcome and I am ruefully stuck indoors because nothing will (comfortably) fit at the moment. Does that happen to you? Well, it happens to me so often that I almost never wear pants (unforgiving), which usually gives people the wrong impression: that I'm fancy and overly girly. I guess it beats grumpy and gassy! I'll take it.

Love all the color! And very bare legs - I can't wait until I can get away with that.

rlutz said...

ha...sadly that is another reason that I rarely ever wear pants...dresses and skirts are so much more forgiving!!
I love how you rock the colors...all those greens and yellows and that great belt!! Love the outfit!

Miss Priss Morgan said...

Another one for the "I'm copying this" folder on my desktop! I am bloated and gassy all the time... But I love jeans so I recently went and bought a few pairs a size up for those "balloon" days!

Classy Chassy said...

All these colors = AMAZING!

aaez said...

ah i see you choose the skirts over pants, so clever! i opt for oversized shirts. so while you look "overly girly" i look like a middle aged mom in the 90s. must rethink that...

Popcorn, Pugs & Peonies said...

Wow, I never would have tried to put those colors together, but they look amazing. Must remember this idea.

Bri said...
