Knitted Tight

Rosi Golan -- Been A Long Day

I had one of my lovely readers, Harriet, ask me how I got the youtube thing to not show the video and just play the song. I thought I would just answer on here in case any of you others were wondering. All I do is change the height to 25 from the emded link. And I change the width to match that of all my pictures, which is 435 for me. 


{Boots: DSW -- Socks: Alpacca farm! -- Dress, Jacket & Scarf: Thrifted -- Hat: Urban Outfitters}





I'm having one of those days. You know, the kind where every simple thing seems to go wrong. I even had to shoot this outfit twice because I hated the first pictures so much. I've also realized that I am bigger than what I envision in my mind. Kind of a shattering realization. I've been baking too much... haha. But should it really bother me? It's not like I am heavy. And I still weigh much less than before my weight loss crusade a couple years ago. Which was done healthy with lots of boiled chicken and exercise. None the less I would love to just squeeze into a bikini next summer and feel beautiful. Probably an unrealistic goal though. Or maybe not, maybe I just feel that way because it is one of those days. 

It's a friday night and I am sitting in my room. About to go read my book on World War I. Now don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic book, but how boring is that? I wish I had friends here on the East Coast to go and hang with on a friday evening. It's so hard to make new friends when you're shy. I'm working on getting over my constantly blushing thing though. I even bought liquid foundation. Which kind of scares me because  I hardly wear make up, it feels so strange and alien. 

Well enough about all my problems, let's get to the outfit. I really liked how this one came out. Blue and black is always a pleasure to mix for a strange reason. And the nice touch of gold in my scarf popped so well. I also wore my gold satchel today, but forgot to wear it while shooting. Over all this outfit was very comfy, cozy and warm. I'm quite glad I finally whipped out my favorite pair of knitted tights. They are so delightful! I'm not sure what I will do when they get hole... let's just hope that day never comes! Also can't get over these Diba boots, seriously best pair I own right now, can hardly take them off. 

Have a great weekend darlings!

Can you believe that I actually wrote you an e-mail asking the same thing about the youtube bar, but forgot to send it?! Thank you so much for the information, I have to try it now :)

Love your look, especially the tights, my favorite piece of winter clothing!

Love the outfit! Don't worry about being shy. I use to be in the same situation, but it's amazing what just putting yourself out there can do. From what I can tell you have a lovely personality. Don't be afraid to show it!!!

Yes! I've been actually wondering about this neat trick for quite a while and woop woop, now I feel so enlightened! Thank you!

I love all of your looks. I seriously need to learn how to thrift like you! And you are NOT big, you are absolutely beautiful! I'm with you with the whole putting on a few pounds thing though. I really need to start working out. I've been eating a lot better but the weight's not coming off as fast as I'd like it too. I WILL look good in a bikini next summer!

xo,

I love this outfit! It looks so great for the fall season.
I understand with the, "everything is going wrong" days. I get them also. I can't believe you would be shy; I guess I never thought you would be. Hopefully you'll overcome that. I know I'm a little shy, but lately I've been able to step out of my shell. :)
You look lovely as always.

Thank you for the information, I might have to copy you :P

Oh Kaylee, Kaylee. How I would KILL to have your figure! You are so beautiful! If I had your figure, I would parade around in a bikini all summer AND all winter!

Also, I know how you feel. I don't really get on with many people in my town, so it's hard to find people to hang out with (that aren't busy with their boyfriends)! And I'm not a foundation girl either, and I also blush really easily! Haha.

I love this look, the grungey jacket, boots and hat looks fab with the cute dress! And I always love your bright pops, this scarf is no exception!

I know exactly how you feel. I gained some weight this summer and I still haven't lost it. It's gradually going away, but it's still irritating.

Love your outfit!

oh i almost asked you how to do that with the youtube videos!! i love your scarf and i have been searching for a denim shirt like that for ages. You look absolutely great so dont worry about weight thing, but i know what you mean i lost alot of weight in the summer and i have gained part of that back which made me go into a bit of a panic. Hopefully i will lose that soonish but it is annoying, i hope you had a good day :)!!

I think you look great! Don't worry too much about your weight. Everyone judges themselves more harshly than reality warrants.

I really like how you styled that denim jacket with the bright yellow scarf! It's very cute.

You look so stunning! I love the yellow scarf and blue coat, ah you look amazing.
Don't worry about the weight love. You are beautiful inside and out! But I understand where you're coming from because I get like that ALOT. I already know that I am plus size, but there are some days where I just look at myself and yell (in my mind) "whale" everytime I walk past a mirror. Then usually a few days later, *ahem* "that time of the month" comes along (if you catch my drift) and I figure out why I had those ridiculous feelings in the first place! (Kinda like this week... urgh) :/
