30 for 30: Day 8 A Practice in Awkwardness

 Having another hectic week, but not so hectic that I can’t throw on some weird combination of clothing and pose awkwardly in the yard. I am so ashamed all of a sudden of our house’s new paint job. It didn’t come out so hot. I guess that’s what you get when you ask for “a broken-down dirty Santa look.” Um, but seriously. Does anyone know a cheap painter in Austin?

I was sad to miss the Ladies Who Lunch gathering today. I totally RSVP’d that I would be able to go but then I found myself downtown, between my two jobs, with no time to get back up north in time. So I publicly apologize, ladies!

    I like how you named your poses. Mine would be recurring: goofball. That skirt is so awesome! I like the successful mixing of patterns!

    OH goody I do love blouses with ties in front! They are on my wish list. BTW… I happen to lack boobs and shoulders, so maybe that's why button ups work easily on me. However, I've heard wrap blouses or blouses that have a deep V work really well for larger chests. Just an idea!

  13. Sarah says:

    I love this pattern mixing. This is one great look. That top is just full of great color!

    This look is beautiful, from the top all the way down to the tippy toe of your shoe. The skirt is a beautiful shape and I love the subtle stripes. The printed blouse is super pretty, too! Gosh, I love it all!

  20. Amber Rose, Laughing With Broken Eyes says:

    These poses are lovely, and not at all awkward!

    Well.. maybe the first one, but in the best possible way! :)

    gosh I can't even tell you're remixing clothes yet! so cute. everything is SO CUTE.

  22. blahblahblog says:

    I love the color on your nails. Is it by any chance part of the new OPI Texas collection? It looks like "I wanna be a lone-star," which I bought. I also bought "Houston, we have a purple" which is the best name ever! Austin-tatious is pretty cute, too!
