Painted


My Threads: Sweater: H&M, Skirt: H&M, Tights: H&M, Jacket: Urban Outfitters, Booties: Target, Clutch: Nordstrom Rack (similar), Necklace: J.Crew Factory, Watch: Michael Kors (similar)

Sometimes, I get dressed in the dark. Okay, a lot of times I get dressed in the dark. No, not because I'm a vampire. Marc often gets up after I do, so I try to avoid turning on the light and waking him up. And even when I can turn on the light, it's still dark. That's how terrible our one light bulb is.

I promise there is a point to this rant. I don't always get the full effect of an outfit when I look in the mirror in my dimly lit room. Which is what happened with this outfit. I put the jacket on as an afterthought (because it was freezing outside), and now I'm not sure how I feel about it. I don't hate it, I just don't love it. 

But what's a girl to do. I guess turn on a light while she's getting dressed. That'd be a good start.

Do you ever change your mind about a look after you're already out the door? I think this happens to me a lot. 

Happy Hump Day!

  1. Emmily, when my bf visited me in germany and was still sleeping while I needed to get ready for work is to select clothes the evening before and put it in another room ;-). I like how that painted colourful skirts stands out in the black.

  2. I'm a fan of this outfit! That's pretty funny that you have to get dressed in the dark though - I think you've done a great job considering haha! Hope the boyfriend appreciates it - maybe you should buy him an eye mask? ;)

  3. I have the same problem. In fact our whole house doesn't have good lighting. I may *think* that the outfit looks okay and then get outside and realize that all the colours are off by 2 shades. Then I just say I was "thinking outside the box" : )

    I kind of agree with you on this outfit. I'm not sure that the jacket is adding anything to the outfit. Everything else I love though.

  4. Hi Emily. I found your cute little blog today through a couple of linkups and I am glad I did because I am loving your cute, girly style. The skirt you got on here is adorable and I like how you dressed it down a little bit while still looking girly.

    I am Ada and I blog over at Elegance Personified - a newer blog, just like yours. I love the blogging community where I can connect with real and stylish people like yourself. I would love for you to check out my little blog.

    Thank You and I will stop by again. Ada. =)

  5. I like how the jacket brings the tan shade of the shoes up and pulls it through the entire look! And I am in love with that skirt - it's so pretty! For getting dressed in the dark, you always seem to nail it!

  6. This skirt is so pretty–I love how saturated the colors are in it! Trust me, if I got dressed in the dark, it'd end up much worse than this!

  7. I like the jacket, and the whole outfit! I've been getting dressed in the dark lately too while my husband is on break from law school. Sometimes, you just have to take a gamble :)

  10. I love that skirt! I do the exact same thing! It's terrible, but I usually change 2-3 times before I can figure out an outfit for the day.

  17. Very pretty... Especially for getting dressed in the dark! :) And yes, that happens all the time... Catch a glimpse of myself and say "Hmmm... Not my best idea." Lol

  18. I actually LOVE it. And I would have never thought to pair those wedges with it....genius. And aren't those puppies the best? I ear mine all of the time. Thanks a million for linking up and your sweet comment!! xoxo

  19. What a gorgeous skirt, and the wedges are unexpected yet really cute with this. I like the half tuck too.

    If I got dressed in the dark, I'd probably end up wearing two different shoes or something. Kudos to you for doing so great!

    Thanks for linking up today!

  26. 1. I love that skirt. Wah! All of the colors are fun.

    2. I think this jacket goes wonderfully with this outfit. Gives it a little bit of edge.

    3. I can't even pick clothes that match if I choose them in the morning, which is why I always pick them out the night before. Otherwise, I stand inside of my closet like an aimless troll who can't tell navy blue from black.

    4. H&M should pay you for the advertisements. Every time I look at one of your posts, I want to go to H&M. Immediately.

  33. That happens to me a lot! But sometimes the opposite happens and I start out feeling unsure about an outfit and end up loving it! I actually think your outfit is really cute! I love your skirt and I think the jacket looks great also! :)
