Mama Tried

Well, sometimes it takes a few tries to get an outfit right.  And this is the first try for this one.

Not bad.  But it features the two other "b" words.  Boring and boxy.

I refrained from belting today, because I feel like I now belt everything and that would have taken away from the coolness of the linen.  (Yes, still hot.)

I do like the texture of the top.

And rolling the sleeves was a good move.

So why does this look just not make it?  I think maybe there's something missing.  Perhaps some color. Maybe this blouse would be better as part of a layers looks.


Blouse, LL Bean, gift from my husband; Skirt, Victoria's Secret; Shoes, Madden Girl.


  1. Personally, I like it and it looks cool and comfy. Definitely could belt or tuck to switch it up a bit. I wore a pretty cute outfit today (wish I had taken a picture!), and it made me think of you! Stay cool... :)

  2. I think it is stunning~do NOT change a thing! Laura

  3. Thanks, ladies! I think maybe all the tucking and belting of late are making me think it looks unfinished!
