holllaaaa! (days 34 and 35)

hey lovelies. happy belated 4th of july! thank you to the men and women who have fought to keep our country free. i know a few words don’t suffice, but thank you for showing the greatest love of all.

on a much less serious note, i have officially worn the last of my 35 outfits. wooooooo!

i wore this for 34.

and i’m wearing 35 above. i had a stroke of brilliance and wore my maxi dress as a top. i really like how the silhouette turned out.

i also tried the combination below, but realized i liked it in theory, not in real life, so i didn’t wear it outside the privacy of my front porch.

biggest takeaways from the 11 for 30-turned-35? guess you’ll have to come back tomorrow and find out!

    I am impressed. How did you fit all of that dress under your skirt! You are brilliant.

      Thanks friend! How did I fit it? Very carefully. :)

    I liked the one that didn’t make it off the porch…and how did the maxi dress fit under the skirt?

      Thanks Mom :) It was tricky, but I folded the front and back of the dress up, tucked them into my waistline, then zipped the pencil skirt. I tugged the maxi skirt down so it wouldn’t show above or below the skirt, and voila!

    I agree with Mama V… I love the outfit-that-never-made-it-out!! And did you totally feel like you had an awesome secret no one knew when you tucked that maxi dress in?? I would have. And also I’m sure at some point in the day it would have come untucked on me and provided an embarassing situation for everyone involved.

      Absolutely. And thankfully it didn’t come untucked (how hilarious would that have been?!), but it was quite tricky to maneuver. I only wore it for part of a day. Inventive, but not the most comfy.

    I agree kls3 and your mom . . . the last outfit is great! I’m not sure why you didn’t wear it out.

    • Caitlin July 7, 2012 at 3:57 PM

      Thanks! It just didn’t feel right. Weird reason, but I’m going to play around with the concept and different pieces and see if I can come up with a combo I like.
