Week 9 :: of SarahTaylor and nothing

Wait for it…wait for it…

Yeah.

I got nothing.

nothing

click me! click me!

Nothing much to say about today’s outfit, that is.

No, that’s not a diss on the magnificent SarahTaylor, who presented me with this challenge pic only after much cajoling on my part because she’s a self-professed non-fashionista. (Hrm, I seem to have a lot of regular readers who profess this; should I be flattered or concerned?)

I just think that sometimes, simple is best, as evinced by today’s dupe.  It’s actually very similar to Monday’s look in color scheme and vibe.  But, whereas I felt deliberate and structured and “put together” on Monday (must’ve been the layers and the heels), today is all about being casual, comfortable and classic.  And really, does a chambray shirt and skinnies need much commentary?

Challenge Week Thursday

Okay, I take it back.  I have plenty to say.  Firstly, I need to point out that Aly took the garden shots yesterday then gave up on me halfway through.  This should have been an indication that things were sure to go awry.  Because this morning, the pair of wedges that I thought were amazeballs – not only because of that fierce giraffe print – giraffe! – but also because I got them for the low, low price of $4 at the thrift store – ended up killing my feet so much, I chucked them aside at the last minute and threw on my tried-and-true riding boots instead.

Did I say “last minute”?  Why, yes.  Yes, I did.  In my haste to put something on my feet and dash out the door for carpool, I forgot that the boots-and-skinnies combo cuts me as effectively as a piss-poor magician doing the box trick.  Already in a foul mood, I attempted to do the morning photo shoot at work but no amount of encouragement from BF could cajole a decent picture out of me.

I got nothing.

So now, I think I’m just gonna stop talking and let the pictures – the ones I managed to salvage – do their thing.  And in the spirit of today’s post, I won’t even mind if I got very few comments  or none at all.  After all, in the immortal words of Rand MacIvor (who, btw, inspired the text for this post and who – by his graciousness and artistic genius – has unwittingly acquired me as a stalker): “If you have nothing in mind, at least you have lots of room should something happen along.”

  1. I don’t know how I should feel about picking an outfit that initially, left you with nothing to say. Flattered that I did something I once thought was impossible, or further reassured that I am the polar opposite of a fashionista?

    I like the combo, and I even like the idea of the boots, but shorter boots. Yes. That.

    Now that I’m looking at this, I liked Danielle’s pick more… I’m gonna go with the fact that I am further reassured that I’m the polar opposite of a fashionista. Yes.

    • The last time I wore boots with skinnies, they were shorter and they made me look even more stumpy. Feh. I don’t think it’s the height of the boot shaft; it’s the color of the pairing. I just have to wear monochrome boot/skinnies combo so the line isn’t interrupted.

  2. I’m sorry you had shoes & photography issues, but overall I think the look turned out nicely. I’ve got this same inspiration photo in my “Imitate This” board on GCOGH – chambray and yellow are a great combo!

    • Thanks for the virtual pat on the back, Selah. See, readers like you make even my most discontented, icky days worthwhile. And how funny that you have this same pic. Great minds…

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
