Bloggers do it Better: White-out

I made it on time to the second edition of Bloggers Do It Better hosted by Kristina over at Pretty Shiny Sparkly.

This time around it's all about white.


I actually have a lot of white. And red, black and grey. No fun prints. Nothing with "a bird on it". My closet is blah, boring and screaming out for fun and excitement!

But....at least with this challenge I was able to drag out some items I haven't worn at all/in a long time.



Like this blouse. It was a hand-me-down from my Mother-in-law. It's sheer with a ruffle front and a drop waist with a little string belt type thing. I wasn't sure how to style it because of the drop waist.


I do like how this came together though. To make it me I rolled up the legs and added grey boots. Also went with gold and silver bangles.

pants: requirements/ross/10
blouse: handmedown/free
boots: speigel/thrift/10
various bangles
TOTAL: $20 (ish)
I think I did this a lot better than the colorblocking....lol! (at myself!) Go ahead and click that link if you wanna laugh!! ;)

Truth: I only wore this outfit for only like a quarter of the day. In the morning I was doing some gardening and since white is not conducive to soil, mud and weeds I wore yoga pants. After really getting dressed for the day, I ended up changing again sometime between picking up the kids and cooking dinner.


thinking you can cook in white?!? oh no you didn't!!
White is not the best choice for running after three kids, especially when my Little Monster is a sticky monster. White is not the best choice for cooking, especially when I happen to spill, splash and splatter.
But do you know what print is favorable to all the above??

Something with a bird on it!!

Don't call me today....I'm going shopping!!!

ps. blooper alert:

high heel boots + hidden holes = stumbling and bumbling

You can't really do anything but sit and look pretty in white. I'm not really a huge fan of it because I'm such a klutz and always fear that I will end up spilling something on myself!

HAHAHAHA. THis is the best post so far. So much personality. I love the blooper and the bird dress! Okay, yes, I like your outfit too, especially those shoes but your sense of humor outshines everyone by a country mile!

Would love it, if you would stop by and see how a 45+ year old handles “White Out”—you might get a good chuckle anyway! See you there! http://stillblondeafteralltheseyears.com/2011/05/white-out-change-it-up-outfits-modeled-by-women-over-45/

I really want to pull of "all white" but I still haven't quite figured it out. I love these heels, too. And that dress...yes!
