A Blue Study

This was definitely a study in fail. This is one of those outfits that when I looked in the mirror before walking out the door, I LOVED. These navy blue wool Céline trousers are new and their fitted high waist and wide legs have quickly turned into favorites. The striped button down is the first button down in over a year that I love how well it fits right out of the box.  BUT, none of that translated into the real world if these photos are any indication. These are actually the okay pictures (I refuse to say these are the good pics because they're NOT) and the outtakes made me realize that while I have always been a fan of leaving my shirt untucked, these pants are best shown with a tucked in shirt or a even a more delicate top to offset the wide legs. I am also unlikely to pair them with flats again.
Shirt: J Crew; Trousers: Céline
Earrings: Blue Nile; Necklace: c/o Gorjana (2012) (current)
Shoes: J Crew (current)
This is a great example of how your favorite pieces don't always translate into your new favorite outfit. At least it didn't for me on this occasion. :(
