Modern Mom Style: Makin' It Work

1/30/2013

I could not be more excited for today's Modern Mom Style! Why, you ask? For a few reasons, actually. Let me break it down:
  1. It's a never-before-worn ensemble.
  2. I {again} found use for some items I rarely wear.
  3. It was my first time wearing the scarf my brother bought for me.
  4. I tried out a new camera angle in an attempt to look taller. {Did it work?}
Exciting, right?

Purple Top: Kohl's
Tan Top: Rainbow
Leggings: Target {Similar}

Boots: Target {Similar

You see that tan top peeking out? It's a tank top with a really strange neckline. It's cut long, which does nothing for my petite frame... Let's be honest. It makes me look stumpy and pudgy {thanks to its shapelessness}. I wish I had tried it on in the store. Let this be a lesson to you! Anyway, it has been sitting in my closet for a year having only been worn, I think, once prior to this outfit.

Well, this particular day I wanted to wear this scarf, and I was trying to think up how I could do that. I didn't think jeans really suited it, and I remember it being a day where we had a light dusting of snow, so I wanted to stay warm. I have these leggings that really flatter my legs, but I don't wear them often because I only have so many ways to cover my front {ahem} and my rear. I'm a true believer in the cardinal rule of never wearing leggings unless your rear is at least mostly covered, and your front is certainly covered! I had already worn leggings with a long tank and cardigan a few days prior, so the cardigan was a no-go. Then I spotted this tank... hm... I gave it a whirl.

Just right! It peeked out just enough from under my top to cover most of my little booty, and covered my front entirely. Win! I was able to wear my purple top, which I thought paired well with the scarf, and didn't have to worry about not looking appropriate.

I don't know about you, but I'm super proud of myself for making some use of my neglected clothes!

  4. LOL! Thank you! I'm not always so thrilled with it. That's the way it goes, I guess.
