Twofer Tuesday: Fails

I've seen other bloggers post their fashion fails so for Twofer Tuesday today, I am sharing two of my lesser liked looks. I don't think they are seriously horrible (well at least I hope not anyway), but I would never wear them again. We all make mistakes so hopefully I will learn from these!



Jacket-F21 (similar, similar) | Top-Kohls | Pants-Old Navy (similar, similar) | Scarf-DIY (similar, similar) | Flats-souvenir (similar)
What's wrong? For starters, the nude flats aren't my favorite with the gray pants. In fact, I don't really like the gray pants with this outfit at all. I don't wear them enough, so I think I was just forcing myself to wear them when it didn't really work at all. 





Shirt-Kohls (similar, similar) // Skirt-Loft via thredUp (similar, similar) // Vest-Loft via thredUp (similar, similar) // Tights-Walmart // Shoes-Target (similar) // Bracelet-JCrew Factory (exact)
This was an issue of wear all the new clothes! I actually wore it a while ago when I got that skirt and vest (and see how big it was before I altered it?). The black tights are shoes are too dark. The vest proportions are obviously wrong. Heels, boots, different colored tights or no vest would have really improved this outfit! 
Well, you win some and you lose some!

  2. Oh my goodness I don't think there's anything wrong with either of these! I think they are both pretty cute, actually =)

  3. While I don't see anything wrong with the outfits you posted, I do love the practice of blogging about what we learn through this process! Often times when I make a recipe, I have a recommendation as to what I'd do differently next time.

    I love that you are willing to share that side of you with us!

  4. I love that you keep it real! Not every outfit we wear looks perfect or "off the runway." I still think you look adorable though and I LOVE that hairline braid!

  5. I really like your moto jacket! I really don't think either of these looks are horrible, I really do like the idea of both. :)

  6. Thanks Valerie! I probably should have titled it something like 'Needs Improvement!' They just weren't outfits I was proud of or felt good in. I don't think Stacey and Clinton would have stopped me though! ;)

  7. That's definitely one of the big reasons I started blogging! I love all that I've learned! :)

  8. Its a cool feeling to post the not so perfect at times, I did a post with all the wrong poses, but I like this idea, outfits I don't love.. I do like the first one though but I can see your point on the shoes, maybe a cute boot. Great idea for a post though

  9. I love the scarf in the first outfit! I know what you mean about forcing yourself to wear a neglected item. Most of my failed outfits are the result of that exact situation. Live and learn!

  10. Your smile really shines in the first outfit, so much so that it makes any possible imperfection with the outfit unnoticeable. Also, I love that skirt! I actually don't mind the black tights in the second outfit, and think a black necklace or scarf would have balanced it out? But I definitely agree with you on the "win some, lose some" sentiment. That's been the story of my blogging life.

  11. More black on top definitely would have helped! That's a great suggestion! :)

  14. I don't think they are bad at all, in fact, I really like the first one! But we are always so much more critical of ourselves, especially if we had something particular in mind when we started out.

  15. I really like the first outfit - especially the hair!! Such a great braid!

  16. Ok - so I totally did not notice anything wrong with either outfit. Even after you pointed out the flaws. You are gorgeous, stylish, and way to hard on yourself(: Susan

  18. I REALLY struggle with my gray corduroy pants as well! Why is that?! When I've searched for gray corduroy pants on Pinterest, I haven't gotten a ton of great ideas either. Sigh. I love gray with light pink together, so I'm planning to wear my gray corduroys with a light pink tank and black cardigan this week...I'm really hoping that it works out so I can feel good about having spent the money on my gray cords!

  19. It's funny you should say that; I love grey and light pink together, too. I just don't have much light pink in my wardrobe. Purple and navy are ok combos with it, too. I just feel like I typically like other pants with outfits more. Your outfit sounds cute!
