Choose my Adventure

Reader's choice - which version of this thrifted polyester shirt should I style first? Please keep in mind that I threw these together pretty quickly. My cats were rushing me.

In reality, I'd probably tuck the shirt in for a more prim and proper look. 

Keep the top untucked and blouse-y here...or maybe tucked in with a cute belt. See, the details weren't very well thought out on my part. 

Important lessons I learned while attempting to assemble these outfits:

  1. I have no idea how to appropriately lay jeans for photos. In fact, I wouldn't blame anyone if they chose the skirted option based on how ridiculous these jeans look. 
  2. My cats have an amazingly annoying way of sensing when I want to get something accomplished in a hurry. Kassie James kept trotting around my photo set, sniffing everything and playing with the newspaper. Then she decided she needed food immediately and sprinted right over my freshly placed clothing into the kitchen. (See her antics below)
  3. When you make it public news that a new blog post will be up that day, don't wait until the last minute. I'm exhausted and shouldn't have put it off until after watching 'My Life as Liz'. 

Have a lovely day!


  1. Option 1! The skirt and the blouse go purrfectly together (see what I did there?).

  2. Haha! I love it. I was actually trying to fit in a 'purr' somewhere in the post, but totally ran out of energy and motivation. Glad you could pull through for me!

  3. Love number 1! Cute!

    And your cat has my name! =)

  4. I'd go with number 2! simple, chic and oh so cute! :)

  5. Thanks for the votes, guys! Keep 'em coming - with the way the weather has been acting, I won't be able to wear either option for at least a few more weeks.

  6. I vote for the first options. That shirt will look wonderful with the vest!

    I follow you now!

  7. I vote #2! aw, Kassie! I adore the newspaper background - super clever.
