clumsy is an understatement


Sweater from J Crew   Boots from Winners  Skirt from F21   Belt from Gap   Bow Earrings from Kate Spade
Needless to say, I'm not graceful by any means. These burgundy tights are not only fun to wear, they are kind of life savers. Nothing covers purple bruises better than colored legwear. Over the years my family and friends have learned that "ow" is part of my everyday vocabulary. "Ow, I tripped" - "Ow, I fell down the stairs" - "Ow, I walked into the table". All totally normal and expected. I've learned that I should not try to jump over anything, that I need to hold on to the guardrail at all times (even up the stairs) and to always check if the glass door is closed before going inside. Oh and to buy furniture with rounded edges, no sharp corners for this gall. Us clumsy people have it hard.

I am continually walking into door frames. it's pathetic. I can't just go through the middle of the door, i have to veer to the side then the pointy metal part the door latches into stabs me.

Right now I have a HUGE black and blue on the back of my leg and I can't even remember where it came from.

But your colored tights are wonderful, even if they aren't covering up bruises, and your color blocked outfit is fabulous!

I can completely relate! I think it's an endearing quality... who would entertain others if clumsy people like us weren't around?

Hahaha - this post has ME written all over it. I fall up the stairs all the time. Embarrassing!!! I once fell down (or up, who knows) the stairs three times in high school (it was an unforgettable day) and when it got to the third time, I just sat there and cried. Ha! Too funny!

Cute belt!

So happy I was able to discover your blog! You have the cutest style and I am loving your hair! I love how you mixed the colours in this outfit - coloured tights with some neutrals in the skirt & sweater but then another pop of colour in the belt - just lovely! Looking forward to following along :) xo Candice
