Outfit Flop?

Ever have a day where you think you’re looking ok, then see photographic evidence proving the opposite? No? You’re perfect? Ok, cool. Well, I did.

I walked around town all day on Sunday, thinking I looked cute with my cuffed jeans, socks and Swedish Hasbeens. Then, I took a look at these pictures. “Why do I look like a crazy homeless woman? Shouldn’t I be shuffling around in a bathrobe with those feet? Ack!” Ok, maybe a touch dramatic, but I’m thinking this look did not work. Unfortunate considering I walked all over town looking like this for 8 hours. Ugh.

Oh well, you win some, you lose some. At least I’m liking my new jacket. I got this on sale from ideeli because I was in desperate need of a black winter coat. I’m loving it, and it was a bah’gin, my favorite.

THE HORROR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jacket: Kenneth Cole (via ideeli)
Jeans: H&M
Scarf: Century 21 (NY)
Gloves: Ralph Lauren
Bag: Vintage Dooney & Bourke
Clogs: Swedish Hasbeens
Socks: I believe I got these at J.C.Penney when I was 12. Quality craftsmanship!

Have you had any outfit flops recently? Do you always look fashionable and amazing? (I hate you if you do.)

Also, don’t forget to enter my giveaway! Whooga ugg boots and a hand-crocheted (by me!) flower headband are up for grabs!

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.

    I don’t think it looks terrible! And that coat is great.

    Speaking of outfit flops… before I left the house today I took a look in my full-length and realized I was wearing all brown. As in, chocolate brown pants, brown flowered tank and light brown cardigan with… chestnut Uggs. I looked ridiculous. Good thing for that last look!

    you look like a fancy homeless lady to me!

  4. Right now at 8 months pregnant and stretching a limited maternity wardrobe, I tend to wear a lot of sweat/yogapants/etc. It’s quite the attractive look. LOL

    I don’t think it looks terrible! I probably wouldn’t wear the socks and shoes, but then, I feel like you can pull off a lot I cannot! And I have lots of outfit flops… they’re usually in the form of boring outfits… the worst!

    Okay, you are officially not allowed to judge any more “outfit flops”. You look super cute! I like the socks with the clogs and rolled up jeans. Nothing wrong with that outfit.

    And i’ve also almost left the house in an all brown outfit . . . last looks can be lifesavers!!!

  7. it could’ve been worse ;)

    love that coat!!!
