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!

    I love your awkward poses, bright blue nails, lovely shoes and old paint. Old paint is the shiz.

    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!

    i'm so impressed with anyone with the motivation to do the 30 for 30! you're doing great, i love this look, very cute xox


    The printed blouse with the striped skirt is an absolute divine combo! You knocked this one out of the park girl. Love it!

  18. devorelebeaumonstre. says:

    great shoes. x


  19. Vanessa says:

    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! :)

  21. Kitsune-kun says:

    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!

  23. -smatz- says:

    LOVE your blog. LOVE your style. LOVE your writing! Keep up the great work (please!). :)



  24. Lisa says:

    Tucker for Target! That sly dog! I love that top so. Plus the light blue colored nail polish, I need to put some c-o-l-o-r back into my wardrobe, I might crib that look from yours. :) Great look, as usual.
