Funny how things work out.
When I was looking through Pinterest for orchids, this was the one I fell in love with because, c’mon! Blue? And orange? Together? That’s my signature color combo!
And when I spied this skirt – another product of a recent Mad Hunt – I knew I had to create an outfit around it. The cardi was a no-brainer because it picked up the blue perfectly, and I thought the orange cami would just pull it all together.
But I just wasn’t feeling it. (See me smiling? Yeah, totally faking it.) There’s something off about this ensemble. I can’t quite put my finger on it. Is it the proportion? The knotting of a cardi (my first and last attempt at it)? The bulky shoes? Maybe I should’ve worn my hair up in a pony? Argh!
It’s way too hot outside for photo shoot redos, however, and I still do love the orchid that inspired it, so I’m posting this as a cautionary tale: sometimes, reality just doesn’t match up to expectations.
