Win Some You Lose Some

Have you ever absolutely loved an outfit you were wearing but totally ended up just not liking any of the photos you took while wearing it? That was totally me with this outfit, haha, but even though I am still not really digging any of the photos I wanted to share anyways. I mean might as well keep it real right?
I wore this outfit to go see The Grand Budapest Hotel, which was fantastic. Wes Anderson has pretty much mastered his style and this movie is proof of that. The color pallet, the set design, the costumes, everything was just spot on. It seriously made me wish I could just step into his world and live there forever.

As I mentioned in a previous post my hair is getting long enough that the curls previously held down by long hair are now deciding it's their time to shine. And by shine I mean stand up in the middle of my head all the time, haha! I was constantly having to push my little cockatoo flap back down. I think once it gets an inch longer it will have enough weight to it to keep it down, but until then I will just have to rock it!
Littlemin was very jealous that we got to go outside. I think he's been a little spoiled being able to go outside (with his harness) on the mountain. Since being in Phoenix the cats really haven't gone outside too much because they get spooked by cars. I have a feeling they will be pretty happy to get back to the great outdoors this summer. 

Hope you all are having a nice Monday.

  1. Love the dress color & peter pan collar, and that it looks great with the denim vest! :) I hope you'll give this outfit another photo session, it deserves one you love (I like this one though as well!). Oh! and so in love with the pizza pin. I'll join the trip to live inside Wes Anderson movies when someone discovers the secret trap to get there (there must be one! ;P)
    The cat, you and us

  3. Loved the Grand Budapest Hotel. THE COLORS!!! SO SO PRETTY! I always wanna import them all into photoshop and eye drop them and save them. (I may have done that a time or two...especially the ones in Moonrise Kingdom.) Wes Anderson is sometimes hit or miss for me. I think I am the only human I know who likes Wes but didn't like The Life Aquatic.

  5. You look adorable! But I know how you feel. Seems like every post with me in it has awkward pics. Three cheers for keeping it real!

  6. I love this outfit! It's so cute! I know what you mean, though, when how we think our outfit looks doesn't really translate to the lens. From my standpoint, it rocks!

  8. Amanda,


    Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I really love this outfit. I can definitely relate to not liking some of my outfit pictures sometimes. It all depends on the lighting, setting, etc. You look great, though!

  9. I most certainly will be giving this outfit another photo season because I love it so much and these outfit photos just don't do it justice I think!


    I think someone needs to make a Wes Anderson inspired theme park or something! I would spend so much time there!

  10. Forever 21 recently has had some (I got my vest from there) also I've heard that T.J. Maxx is a good place to find some.

  11. Oh my goodness the colors were so beautiful! Anderson can really be hit or miss for me too, I loved the way Moonrise Kingdom looked but didn't get into the story all that much.

  13. I think I'm going to start sharing at least one of the awkward photos that come from my outfit photos, some of them are so silly!

  14. Thanks so much. It's so weird how you can be loving an outfit only to have it not translate to photos very well.

  15. Thanks! I got them from Costal.com they have a ton of really great glasses. I totally used to watch Degrassi but haven't for years, but I think I know who you are taking about and thank you!

  17. Those are two of my favorite stores! I haven't seen any at the F21 near me, but it has been awhile since I have been to TJMAXX so i'll check there. Thanks!

  18. I think your outfit still looks fabulous! Probably one of those circumstances when you see negatives that other people don't. :) It always brightens my day to see you rocking your pizza brooch! It has a wonderful home on your vest. <3
