Windy City

Last week, Laura said she feels a little "4th of July" when she wears red and blue together.  I can relate!  One of my co-workers actually told me I looked patriotic in this outfit.  I guess that's okay, right?  At least red, white, and blue look nice together.  And there are not stars or stripes, so at least it's a subtle patriotism.  This skirt has been neglected all winter.  Now that it is officially spring, I should show it some love.      

The other day, I mentioned that the wind makes taking outfit pictures more difficult.  I spoke too soon.  On this particular day, I had a lot more trouble!  I got exactly one decent picture, where my hair isn't blowing all over the place.  An outtakes collage had to happen. 

Cardigan & Shoes: Old Navy
Top: H&M
Belt: Chinese Laundry
Skirt: Bass


  1. Oh my goodness, that's a windy day! I feel very 4th of July wearing red, white, and blue too. I usually play around with different shades of reds and blues to avoid it. Love this skirt!

  2. I tried to take picture over the weekend and gave up, then I tried yesterday and it as too windy then too. Boo.

  3. Love the outtakes! And love your outfit, too! I think the textures and patterns help not make it look too 4th of July! And thanks for the shout out! :)

  4. I feel the same way, and I'm glad to know it's cool to embrace it anyway. They look good together, so why not? You can paint with all the colors of the wind? Yes?

    Also, I really love this red sweater on you. It looks great with the color of your hair!

  5. I realized after responding to Laura's post that I think the trick to not looking fourth of July-y is to include another color in the mix. I think having different shades of blue (unless that's black in the skirt and not navy) has done it. The wind can get pretty ridiculous, but if it weren't windy, then we wouldn't have outtakes to enjoy!

  6. your skirt is super cute and prefect for spring.
