Long Story Short

Shirt: One Clothing via TJMaxx, $8 // Skirt: Lucca Couture via urbanoutfitters.com, courtesty of Lucky Magazine // Tights: HUE via TJMaxx, $5 // Shoes: N.Y.L.A. via target.com, courtesy of Lucky // Necklace: Gift

Super quick post today! For now, this is all I have to say: I shouldn't be allowed to wear white. Within the first five minutes of wearing this shirt for the first time, I managed to get coffee on my shoulder. Even taking my clumsiness into consideration, I'm dumbfounded.

I believe I have those shoes in red. I like the taupe/grey color though! I should definitely not own white either...

Sarah said...

Love the tights and the shoes. So cute. I am the same way with white clothes and I don't wear white often for that very reason.

This is an incredibly cute outfit (the shoes have such detail!), but the bit about getting coffee ... on your shoulder? hahaha aww oh no. I don't mean to laugh in a spiteful way, but I think that's a very creative place to have a stain. Nothing a little detergent can't fix, right? :)

Good news - I didn't ruin the shirt. This picture was actually taken after the stain. I was able to get most of it out with a little cold water and a dab of detergent. I still wore it!

Sandy - I was definitely cold without my coat for the picture. But I was wearing two pairs of tights, so I was fine throughout the day.

Clare said...

Oh, I ADORE this outfit, Katy! The puff sleeves with the shape of the skirt is just perfect. I almost bought this skirt a few weeks ago and then decided against it... *facepalm*
Also, your hair has been looking marvelous lately!

Christina said...

I love every part of this outfit. Those shoes are so cool and I love the color of the tights.

Celine said...

Ah, I LOVE this outfit on you!! I love the purple tights with those open toe booties. And your hair looks adorable :)

I'd love to chat you up about dressing for cold weather. After moving to Nashville and actually having winters, I get pretty tired of just wearing the same old jeans and boots when I don't want to be freezing.

Coffee on your shoulder? :( I don't even know how its possible but I'm pretty prone to stains and flubs too so I know stuff like that can happen. I'm glad you got the stain out!

Moda de Colores said...

I love your shoes!

Those shoes are gorgeous!

I always manage to spill something on myself whenever I wear white too. I'm ridiculously clumsy.

Lisa said...

Erin said...

Jennifer said...

Erin Cathleen said...

I can't wear white either; it's a target for coffee, and I love coffee too much to sacrifice. :P But this outfit is adorable! Especially with the purple tights and cut-out booties. Cuuuuute!

Ashley said...

Bridget said...
