WIWW: I Now Present You a Fashion Faux Pas

I only managed to get pics of three outfits this week (hey, better than last week!) and here they are:

Outfit #1: A Day at the Park
Yes, those shorts are the one irresponsible thing I did over Spring Break.  I don't know why I was feeling so emboldened.
(My husband was unavailable for pictures and I quickly realized we have no suitable mirrors in our house for self portraits, so I improvised.  You're welcome.)
Blouse:  Kohl's
Shorts:  Buckle
Shoes:  Kenneth Cole Outlet
Hat:  World Market
Weird pose:  That's all me.  Superstar!

Outfit #2: Birthday Party
*This was such a crazy day I didn't a chance to do a fashion shot, but it's my favorite outfit.  Just imagine it with the above shoes.*
Necklace:  Custom made by Posh Mommy
Top:  Express
Skirt:  Bought on consignment
Shoes: Kenneth Cole (not pictured)
Headband:  Forever 21

Outfit #3:  With Love from Afghanistan
Scarf:  Sent from Afghanistan by my sweet sister in law Emily.  That she is serving in a war and still thought to send me something...I love her.
Blouse:  Gap
Skirt:  LOFT
Shoes:  Shoedazzle
Bracelet:  Bought during one of my trips across the border (a few years ago)

There you have it!  Linking up with the Pleated Poppy again.

I love outfit #3 the best & don't think the short shorts are as bad as you are thinking them to be! I think we are always harder on ourselves though.

Heh, I don't have a full-length mirror, either, it stinks. You are a cutie, Gin! I love the 3rd outfit. But I think they all work ;) That scarf is lovely! What a thoughtful sis-in-law! Praying she and all the others stay safe while serving our country.
