Outfit of the day: Birds and lace

Outfit Details:

blouse - Sears (Attitude), skirt - H&M, boots - Miss Sixty

My apologies for the unplanned hiatus I took. Whenever things get crazy around here, the blog is the first to fall to the wayside. (If only I could figure out a way to make money planning outfits and blogging about it!) Don't worry, you didn't miss anything. My outfits tend to lack creativity whenever I get super busy. Either I fallback to tried and true outfits that I love. Or I default to jeans and a shirt, jeans and a sweater, jeans, top and cardi... well, you get the picture. 

This skirt, which I found many moons ago at H&M, is very reminiscent of the Tracy Reese Spinning Lace dress. I love that it's a skirt which I find so much more versatile, and easily downplayed for everyday life than the Spinning Lace dress. Surprisingly, I found this blouse at Sears(!) of all places.  I love the whimsical bird print, and the blouson sleeves. I wasn't sure if I preferred the shirt tucked or untucked with this outfit, so I tried it both way. In the end, I settled for tucked because I thought it de-emphasized my non-existent torso a touch better. But which way do you prefer?

Looking at these OOTD pictures, I'm not sure why my colour palatte has been so muted lately. I suppose its me dressing like the weather again. We had about 8 inches of snow dumped on us last week and it's veeery sloooowly melting away. I'm sure that I'll dress brighter and "funner" once the warm weather arrives.

Awe, the bird blouse is adorable! I love the muted tones with the bird print in the blouse and lacey texture in the skirt. You're right, the skirt is very comparable to the Spinning Lace dress and much more versatile! I need to find a lace skirt!

I need to find a lace anything! I'm a huge proponent of tucking in shirts. Love the print on the shirt. Also, its not getting any warmer here either. Still below freezing somedays.

That is a really pretty skirt. I like your outfit and agree that the top looks better tucked in. I'm looking forward to warmer weather as well:)

I LOVE the shirt and like it better tucked in.
