Arrrgh Matey!

Does this look say "swashbuckler"? Are you wondering where my giant plumed hat and sword are?Yeah I was kind of afraid of that...

But this is what I looked like this morning... See the way the way this thin cheaply made tunic is clinging to the waist of my leggings? I realize that what I really need is one of those low slung belts... but I don't have one of those... this is what I have (and yes I already left the house looking like this)... is the scarf a total fashion NO?
(if nothing else you can see that apparently the scarf improved my mood..)

Do I look better like this?...

Hey Mrs. F. -- I just stared reading your blog a few weeks ago. It's great! I like your outfit with the scarf, and the smile on your face really sells it.

Also -- I'll say prayers for your little girl. She's adorable and I hope the next year goes by smoothly for all of you.

and thank you.

Mrs. F- I think the scarf is cute and I wear them a lot with jeans. By the way, I tried the tortellini w/bacon and peas tonight. It was out of this world! I am adding this one to my book. You Rock!! Thanks!

Preppy Mama,

Good! I'm glad you all liked it! :)

Ok, let me start by saying Mrs. F, you KNOW I think you are adorable and the last picture is of course my favorite (Kid obviously got your tongue genes).

But actually am a fan of the tunic/legging combo sans scarf. I do see the cling, but maybe some spanks or something to smooth things over. If not, maybe a really fitted tank or something under to do the same thing.

Lame of me to leave this at the end of the day. Sorry. And it's not like I think the scarf looks bad (you definitely DON'T look like a total dork), I just think the "without" picture looks not as bad as you think (at least from the picture).

lol, THen again, what do I know?

Mrs. Furious said...

alright I am going to email you the side view pic... not so good.

But I think the tank underneath could do the trick!.... or possibly not wearing these old workout leggings with the bad waistband... or buying an actual belt...


and LOL yeah Kid got my tongue! (and that's about it)

katieo said...

old workout leggings? I thought those were the new ones you got at the gap, do you still have those?

Mrs. Furious said...

I returned the leggings and got Target ones ($20 vs $7... pretty much the same)

Now the Target leggings are cropped and it was really cold today so these are some old slightly (very) bootcut leggings. They don't have the full length leggings at Target anymore (did they ever...). Ideally I would like to find some normal pants.. but I am still having major difficulties in the pant area. I think this top would look good with some khakis. I normally wear it with jeans and the waist issue is not so bad.
