'ugly' pretty

Skirt/Sweater from F21   Tights from HUE   Scarf/Belt from H&M   Shoes from Lucky Brand   Ring from Aunt 

Anyone remember way back? That time when kids were meanie pants to each other & compliments would go something like this: "You're funny ... Funny looking!" or "You're pretty ... Pretty ugly". Sticks and stones.

My preteen self had a broken heart. Yet, somehow 'pretty ugly' has become a trend that I'm love love loving as a 20-something gall.

'Ugly Pretty' nail polishes are my favorite for Fall. Ogre Green? Mud Brown? Concrete Grey? Yes, yes and yes please!

Yesterday I painted my nails OPI's A-Taupe the Space Needle && asked the boyfriend what he thought. "It looks a little like a muddy swamp" . . . He sure knows how to flatter this girl.

well you look very pretty, pretty in these pictures!

Katya said...

Maybe you should start your own polish line and get the boy to name them. I like 'muddy swam' haha!

That outfit looks soooo comfy and fall-like! It's super flattering on you too :)

Katya said...

Hey girl. Um, you are gorgeous. I love the color on your nails. The uglier the better. At least they are complimentary to your outfit! Ha! Tell the bf that that's all that matters!

Okay, when I first saw this post, I was like YES! I love the red/pink together... I just love it. I need to style something with pink and red somehow. It looks gorgeous.
You're funny...and pretty... and that's it. K, bye!

Katya said...

Hi, I just found your blog. Super cute outfit. I love the sweater. Can't wait to read more.

Katya said...

ps, I have something else to say (k bye really means I lurk around creepy-like)
I love the way you use color. I envy that about you! I have too many faux fashion rules in my head that need to be silenced!

Katya said...

Great post, you pull of those fall colors beautifully. Especially muddy swamp! :-)

Katya said...

It's funny how your perception of beauty changes over the years. At our age being different and unique with what we wear is what it's all about! Boys are just a little behind in that area of development. lol

Love love love this outfit! And I completely agree on the nail polish. Aparently I have an affinity for wedding colors. Make that wedding-name colors because the colors are actually black and gray. Not my personal vision for a wedding but I'm pretty sure nail polish color namers spend entirely too much time smelling polish.

Katya said...

Looooooooooooooove this outfit, Katya!! You look so fashionably fall-y! Cute!

Katya said...

You look adorable in that outfit! I completely agree with the other comments, it's a perfect fall look! And I am a fan of the "muddy swamp" nail polish, it looks fab!

Ha ha that's definitely an idea. He must have some pretty creative name up his sleeve ;)

Katya said...

Throw them faux fashion rules out the window! If I've learned anything while blogging, it's that rules are there to be broken (maybe this is a life lesson too? ha ha)

PS. Can you be any cooler? No? Didn't think so.

Katya said...

You have no idea how flattered I am that YOU would want to copy me. Cue the blushing :)

Katya said...

Boys are years behind - they just don't get it :)

Katya said...

He's something I tell yah ;)

Katya said...

Really? Pinning me? That's like the ultimate compliment in the history of ever.

Katya said...

They must! How else do they come up with the wacky names? Beats me!

Thanks so much for the comment Ramsey! I've been a long time follower of your blog, so it's such an awesome feeling to have you commenting on mine :)

HAHA that is hilarious! My sister painted her nails a greenish color this week, and needless to say, our Mommy wasn't too thrilled - she thought it looked "sick" in a bad way! There's nothing ugly about your look, though - I love the stripes with the red scarf! You look so perfect for fall! :)
