i am wearing: polka dot skirt from an etsy thrift shop (last seen here), converse shirt from target, leopard bcbg pumps, thrifted belt, ann taylor loft necklace, stella & dot and h&m bracelets and michael kors watch.

soooo….i got busted taking pics of myself by my neighbor and the at&t telephone guy today. oh but it gets worse…after i think they have gone, i snuck back out and start snapping away posing like a moron and then i notice…OMG…the at&t guy is up on the pole RIGHT behind my house and can see me clear as day. wonderful. then i go on to explain myself and tell him about my blog which made me seem even weirder. so not only did i go with the boring mixed patterns outfit for my everybody everywear outfit (i was planning on wearing this lace dress as a top with this polka dot skirt over it) but my full length pics did not come out very well! so then i went back outside and took pics of my REAL shoes (yes, slippers) for you. hey at least they were still leopard print right?!? =)

    Oh we have ALL been there Jenn don’t worry πŸ™‚ haha I was caught on Saturday night just gone by a girl in the bathroom (I was out) as I’ve JUST gone brunette and wanted a photo of it. So embarrasing! I loveeee those leopard heels though (especially the slippers in the last pic – the best!)

    Love this ensemble, and love the slippers. Love this look overall. Tar-zhay… who knew? I kept getting caught in the elevator at the hotel this weekend trying to take a picture of myself in the mirrored ceiling.

    Adorable outfit & hilarious story! A friend was looking at pictures on my camera (I don’t tell everyone about my blog) and was like “Why do you have pictures of yourself?”… That was awkward so I know how you feel!

    I got caught taking outfit photos by my landlady last week…so awkward! Plus English isn’t her first language, so it was even more difficult to explain my blog to her! And leopard print slippers definitely count, you look fab πŸ˜€

    That’s one reason I’m glad my husband plays photographer. πŸ˜‰

    I love the polka dots and cheetah print shoes–I sure hope you wear a size seven, because I might come steal them.
