6/30 + Everybody, Everywear

today I wore: 10 / 12 / 22 / 27 / wal-mart tights / thrifted necklace

Today a dear co-worker told me these shoes made my legs look a mile tall. How awesome was that? It was extra nice because my frizz-tastic hair was making me feel just a little bit off today, but after that, I walked just a stitch taller. So the next time you look at someone and think of a compliment, do them a favor and say it. It can do wonders. And there's a 99.9% chance they won't think you're weird. Good odds, I'd say.

I'd like to give a shout out to MJ & Akon for getting me out of my posing rut today. I blasted tunes from the car as it warmed up and I shot pictures. Do you fashion bloggers ever have music going? Sure made it a lot more fun...and go by quite a bit quicker than usual. And bonus...now my neighbors will think I'm taping a cheesy music video instead of just taking pictures of myself. This will definently build street cred.

now go see how everyone else has been styling their blazers!
and see how I have styled this blazer before

Classic Blazer | Everybody, Everywear


  1. I love how you styled that skirt -- it's gorgeous, and so are you!

  2. your jacket + skirt combo is amazing - the skirt especially! it looks great on you, and I envy the skill it must have taken to make it.

    and I love your hair! mine is always super flat and I can never get enough volume to it. your hair is amazing and suits you beautifully. embrace it!

  3. I love your big hair!! Love the color and the way you style it :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier, too!

  4. There are so many things I love about this post.
    1. The blue sky. Holy COW!
    2. Your outfit. The skirt and blazer combo particularly.
    4. The hole compliment thing is TOTALLY true.
    5. Street cred...hilarious.

    That's all for today, but I need to catch up on my commenting on your earlier posts. Some great stuff.

  5. I am just trying to picture your dance party. I imagine it to be ridiculous amounts of fun. And you need to invite the neighbors along!

  6. Awesome look of yours with blazer and lace skirt. You look gorgeous and like you're having a lot of fun.

  7. When I first ran across your blog the first thing I noticed is how cute your hair is. I love it :)

  8. Aren't random compliments just the best! I usually look around beaming like, are you talking to me??? Wowza, thanks! You look precious as always. And I wish I had your level of humidity to deal with everyday. Florida air is about 50% water.

  9. love this look - especially that skirt! love it!

  10. Your legs definitely always look SO long :)

    And you are so good at posing (dynamic yet classic, love it).

    i just had to tell you that girl your tights make your legs look even longer cause normally they're really long for me already :D

    i love that you got to do everybody, everywear, i totally forgot as always. and your hair?! SO PRETTY FOREVER

  12. You are SO RIGHT. I think that to myself sometimes when I get a compliment that I really should be dishing those out more IRL. The. Best.
    Also the best? Your skirt!!
