DISCLAIMER: I get a lot of, "You should wear heels with that" every time I wear a skirt. Yes, I realize this but heels are not an option with 21 kindergartners so I am sometimes stuck in flats that make my legs look, ahem, womanly... and I'll just accept that. I also realize that this skirt should be hemmed to my knees but it was $1 and my hemming pile is currently too large (same as my dirty clothes pile and I may or may not being wearing those clothes too).
Okay, onto the question.
I like color. Lots of it. But I've been trying to decide if this outfit is too, "LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME". Like when I saw this picture I matched the stop sign perfectly behind me and I can't decide if that is a good thing.
99% of the time I wear what I like regardless of how I think I may be perceived by others, but let's be honest here, what do you think? Too much color for you?
If I were going to substitute a different colored shirt/cardigan choice, what should I choose?
(and can I tell you how much I loved the part in the movie The Help when Skeeter is taking off her shoes and her mom says, "take off those mexican boy sandals" and they're the shoes I have! and I agree with every other girl in the blogosphere, that movie was incredible. I especially loved Celia Foote, did you have a favorite character?)
