Daily Outfit - Kate - 4/8/10

I'm not sure what's going on here, and I'd really appreciate your help figuring it out.

Good in theory, right? But something's just not quite it too costume-y, with the voluminous blouse and the long skirt and the intricate sandals? (Do I look like a gypsy?) Is it too old ladyish, with the braided belt and skirt length?

Or is everything A-OK, and I just have an overactive imagination?

Regardless, I think that next time I wear a white top with this skirt it should be a different white top.

You can never go wrong with pearls, though.

Skirt: thrifted, originally Talbot's
Shirt: thrifted, originally Benetton
Sandals: Sofft, summer 2009
Belt: thrifted
Earrings: Meierotto's jewelry
Bracelet: so old I don't remember (just a simple, skinny gold rope)

It's a cute idea,and it looks good. But I do see a little Sound of Music/Swiss Maid a little. :)

Maybe you should try this with a fitted t-shirt or sweater. Also I think a bit of a heel would help Really like the skirt.

i think you're really on to something with this outfit--i love the way the belt looks! but maybe it's the proportions that bothers you? the volume in the sleeves and the volume and length of the skirt is a lot of material?
but i have these moments all the time when i just cannot figure out how to "fix" an outfit.

Ooooh that blouse and skirt are so darn pretty! I think the voluminous sleeves with the skirt is probably what's bothering you, though the idea is spot on (and I actually like the pairing, but this is about what YOU like :)). I'd try tucking a plain white button down into the skirt and see what you think. That blouse would look AWESOME with skinny jeans too... maybe belting at the waist?
