First Ever OOTD!

Hello and happy Tuesday!  Sorry I’ve been MIA the past two days, but I have been hard at work adding labels to allll of my blog posts.  (Yes, every.blog.post.from.the.day.I.started.this.blog.  Eeesh, it was a long process.)  Hopefully the labels will help my blog’s organization, both for my sake and yall’s sake.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to link to an older post and then had NO earthly idea where to actually find the post.  So hopefully this will help.

Anyway…after several suggestions and requests from readers, I am finally doing my first outfit of the day post.  WAIT!  Before you furiously scroll down to see if I have OOTD street cred, let me say that I am very hesitant about adding an OOTD feature on my little blog.  Something about doing OOTD posts, seems a little like I’m tooting my own horn.  Now, there is nothing wrong with tooting your own style horn, but part of me thinks I should leave that style horn tooting to lovelies like Amber, Anh, Amy, and Andi.  (Hmm, perhaps having a name that starts with an “A” gives one instant OOTD street cred.)  I love their posts because they are stylish and fab (I like to abbreviate fabulous, aka fab.  Must learn quickly to understand my speech.)  Not saying I’m not fab, but I don’t know how fab my style is, and I certainly don’t know how fab YOU all will think my style is.  But because several of you have asked, and because I’m feeling optimistic this Tuesday, I’m going to give it a try.  I’m giving myself a few OOTD posts, and if people tell me they could care less what I wear, I’ll end this little experiment.  My day to day wear is fairly flexible, sometimes I can do jeans, sometimes I have to be a pencil skirt.  It just depends on what I have going on that day with work, school, class, etc.  So, now that I’ve officially rambled (no surprise!) here is my FIRST EVER outfit of the day post!  Hope you like it :)

So cute! Definitely keep going with it...I love the vintage bracelet!

amy kelinda said...

YAY, an OOTD! Trust me, I don't toot my own style horn, haha! I do OOTDs mainly because I like to keep track of how I wear things/what looks good/what doesn't. It also encourages me to stop repeating outfits! I love the bright blue on you, and your hair is so lovely!

Andi said...

Oh, I love it! You look Fab:)
So pretty. The cobalt blue is a great color on you! And that Anthro necklace ROCKS! PS-your shoes are amazing :)
And thanks for putting me in the same category as those ladies--they have style for miles, it's an honor!
xoxo

I was really, really hesitant at first, but now that I am into it I can't stop. I think everyone has ideas to share and the more outfit ideas the better, in my opinion. I love that blue cardigan and that necklace from Anthropologie.

Love it!! I can't pull off that kind of outfit! I am still in my jeans and t-shirt phase! But the necklace is just stunning! I love Anthropologie and I wish there were one near me!

Love it!~ Can't wait for the next one!

You did better than you give yourself credit for...hopefully this (and other comments) will help encourage you to do more of these. I liked it! That sweater color is wonderful.

Love the outfit! Next week, you should take a pic for M-F and then post all 5 on Saturday! Kind of like a week in review! Maybe do that once a month then your readers would have an overview of your style and how it changes with the seasons!

Also, I am dying to know what your Pd.D is "in!"

Love the outfit! You should take a pic of what you wear next week from M-F and post it on Saturday. Then do that maybe once a month and your readers would have a great overview of your style and how it changes from season to season! I know I'd love to see that!

Also would love to know what you're getting your Ph.D "in!"
