Adrien: Outfit Trauma

It was one of those mornings where I just stare at my closet blankly because I have no idea what to wear. I found pants, I decided on shoes, I picked out a cardigan. But, as always, the top confounded me. (This is why I wear so many dresses, people.) Why can't I find inexpensive cute knit tops in interesting colors? WHYYYY. Life is so hard. I finally dug out some sad Target tee I found in the bottom of my drawer that put on  because it wasn't striped or black. Yay. This is what I came up with:

Not bad, but I decided I didn't like the shirt tucked in and untucked:

Which is not really better because these pants have a giant button placket thing. Ugh.

 I'm tired.

t-shirt: Target (similar)
pants: Banana Republic (similar)
cardigan: Ann Taylor (similar)
shoes: Frye (similar)
bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs Hillier Hobo
necklace: Banana Republic (similar)


  1. I hate those mornings. I try to pick out things the night before because otherwise I end up making hasty decisions before caffeine has worked its way into my system.

    That said, I really like this outfit! I think it is cute. The pants are very Hepburn-esque. And the color with the print cardi is a great combo!

  2. Lovely!

    I absolutly cannot pick out clothes in the morning either. I have to make those decisions the night before or I end up in the most mismatched and ill fitting outfits.

  3. I'm pretty sure I have that exact same Target purple tee. And I'm with you on the dresses. Skirts I can find. Dresses yay. Cardigans and layering tees run amuck in my wardrobe. But good standalone tops are hard to find.
