Outfit: Take 2

Yesterday I went to work at the mall early so I could go shopping for an outfit.... I truly forgot how glorious it is to go to the mall and be able to just wander around and look at things. It was wonderful.

The best part, though, is that I think I found an outfit for the shoot this weekend! After reading through your comments, and the comments left by the girls on The Nest (the girls on the Fashion Board are great!), I decided to amp up my whole outfit - you were all right - we could do photos in jeans and a sweater any time, but this is our first anniversary!

I tried on this outfit and I just looked like a trainwreck. The ruffles on the blouse made me look pregnant (which would be great if I was, but alas, I am not) and the jacket was just too boxy. The jeans, however, were great. So I kept those and tried on top after top.... and here's what we (the nice associates at LOFT) and I came up with:

This pastel purple shell under this plum cardigan with these denim trousers.

I also got a skinny grey belt, which I'll wear at my waist over the blouse, but under the cardi. I have grey heels, and I'm going to wear the pearl earrings and bracelet my bridesmaids wore for my wedding (of course I got myself a set; they were custom on Etsy and I love them!).

I'm going to put it all on later and post a photo for you - I'm pretty excited about it!

I love ALL the outfits but I just had to leave the MOM comment- You are putting too much emphasis on the outfit-- you are pretty and Ryan is handsome and whatever you wear will not matter as much as the beautiful smiles on your faces--I've yet to see a bad pix of you two!! xoxoxo

Guess who?

thanks for telling the real truth about sending Claire and I a million picture messages with different options. I like what you finally decided on though!

I am so behind on reading that I missed giving my oponion! You know I love to do that! :)

This outfit is fab! Love the cardigan. Can't wait to see the whole thing!

Oh, FYI, you do NOT look like a "jerk" as you mentioned in the last post. You're crazy, girl!
