Daily MelWear: Purple and Teal

 I've embarked on a mission to attempt wearing some items I've had for YEARS; things that I've decided to get rid of because I just don't wear them anymore. My hope is that you all can give me some input into whether I should pitch these items or keep them and style them differently.

This striped shirt is one such item.  I normally wore it buttoned and tucked in to these white pants or brown pants. 

My original plan was to leave the shirt untucked and belt it higher up.  That looked awful.  It doesn't taper in at the waist at all and it's too long, so not so much. Then I tied the shirt at my waist, but that was too casual of a look for the office.

This end result makes me feel a bit self-conscious and overexposed because of the white pants, plus I think the silver belt is a little too skinny. 

So here is my question to you: should I get rid of the striped shirt like I'd planned or is there a better way to style it?

Today's outfit:

Striped Shirt: So old I can't remember

Teal Tank: Plato's Closet

White Pants: Charlotte Russe

Silver Shoes: Payless?

Necklace and Earrings: Wal-Mart


  1. Okay, so I like this as is. You look great in the white pants and I love the silver accessories. Can you see yourself mixing the top up with other outfits?

  2. EEEEPS! I'm pretty super stoked that I found you via Taylor's blog! You are UH-dorable. I'm so excited to continue reading! I'm DEFINITELY following you, girl!

    Congrats on hitting your goal weight. It gives me hope that I'll hit mine someday... My daughter's almost 17 months. That means I have a year and a half to catch up, right? ;)

  3. Taylor: I'm not really sure about remixing the top. It's a quandary for me.

    Sadie's Momma: I love the name Sadie! So cute! And now I'm following your blog because you are super cute! If you want to check out my other blog that details the whole weight loss endeavor, the site is Let me know if you have any questions!
