Not a good combo

This outfit seemed like a good idea in my head last night, but I put it on this morning and realised it wasn't quite right, with not a lot of time to fix it. Tried to fix it with a belt but changed my mind at the last minute. Felt uncomfortable all day at work.

Won't be wearing this top and skirt together again. The beading on the top made it sit awkwardly at the front and the zip down the back of the top meant it kept riding up. It was very difficult to keep in place as you can see by the wrinkles, think I should have kept the belt ;)

What I wore today:
Top: Just Jeans sequin front black tank
Necklace: Chanel (via Reebonz)
Bracelets: the usual
Skirt: French Connection plaid pencil skirt
Shoes: Rubi silver primo ballet flats
Bag: Balenciaga 2005 Magenta RH work

I covered up with a cardi in the office.

Closeup of accessories:

What do you do when you get up in the morning and want to make a last minute change to your outfit? Do you try to fix it, or do you abandon it and go with an old favourite instead?

  3. mmm I feel like this outfit could work if you'd teamed with high heels and super-high fierce hair and makeup a la Gwen stefani... depends where you were wearing it..

    1. Thanks! I'd love to rock it with the fiercest heels! Stupid knee injury. :P

  4. i hate when i feel like i don't have time to change, and what i compiled in my head is just not working.

    this skirt is amazing, but with the length being a bit longer, a sort of awkward in between knees and ankles, i would have definitely worn heels. because the cut of the skirt is a bit dramatic, a plain black plunging v-neck could have worked, coupled maybe with a more statement piece of jewelry.

    1. Great tip, thank you! I wish I could wear heels again! Definitely think a statement necklace would really add to this look, thank you!

  5. If I really don't have the time, I always go with an old favorite!

  6. Aw, too bad it didn't work. I do like that top!
    But, if something goes wrong, I usually throw together something entirely new, starting with an old favorite. :) Always works!

  8. Sometimes the not-so-perfect outfits are just as useful to catalog as the amazing ones. For the record, I don't think it's a flop, though I would have worn different shoes perhaps. At any rate, now you know!

    1. Thanks! I take pics every day so I can remember combos to avoid, even before I started the blog. it's such a great idea! Although doesn't make every outfit perfect, just turns them into better learning experiences :)

  10. Aww i think it actually looks quite nice! Though i understand the whole tucking in shirts can be very annoying and sometimes just dont work. I usuallly try and fix my outfit with adding something like a cover up or belt but usually just end up changing my outfit to something boring and basic because ive had enough trying! haha
    lovely blog btw!

  12. It can be frustrating when an outfit doesn't work out. It leaves you miserable all day. HAHAHA I've been in that situation MANY times unfortunately. I usually don't have time to change. I try to think about it more the night before.

  19. I like the beading... very nice details. Sometimes we do end up in outfits that we just don't feel right. Your outfit is not so bad. I think the pink bag is a nice accent!
