Outfit miss

Hi all!

I am posting an outfit that I wore a while back that I would consider a miss.  Of course, I checked this outfit in the mirror before I left the house and I thought it was great, but when I saw the photos I was not impressed.

Sweater: Gap
White cami: Old Navy

I have decided that although the jeans are so comfortable I don't really like the light wash.  I think that they make my legs look larger than they are.  I love a dark wash denim with a little fading on the thigh.  Slight fading on the thigh can help the leg appear thinner.  The sweater.... I love the color, but maybe unbuttoned would have been a better option?  The white cami under the sweater seems to be hitting me in a weird spot (really looks strange), perhaps a more flowy tank would have been better?  Also, I feel like if I had a darker color shoe it might have grounded the outfit.  In this picture my feet are blending into the background.

Has this happened to you?  You wore an outfit that you thought was great, but when you saw a picture or caught a glimpse in the mirror you were not so impressed?

Have a great day!

  1. What a great cardi! I love the color!
    Oh and that's happened to me plenty of times. I usually take pictures in the morning before going to work, and I've had to change because I hated how the look came out in the picture. And I agree about the dark vs light wash for myself, too. The dark wash is always more forgiving when it comes to my thighs. LOL! :)

  2. I actually think your outfit is pretty cool - put-together yet casual yet contemporary.
