Rule Breaking Monday with Clothed Much: White on White

YES! I know I have no posing abilities!! I will try and improve :)

As a stay at home mom, I *rarely* get dressed up, and that's saying a lot for a hairstylist who used to live to get all fashioned out. So, for my very first outfit post and Clothed Much's Rule Breaking Monday, I thought this white on white outfit was appropriate. I tend to shy away from color (I'm trying to change that), so all my cardigans are white or ivory. I didn't think a white blouse would work under a white cardi, but I kind of like it. I loved this swiss dot blouse, but it does a weird poof thing when I tuck it since it's an empire waisted tie shirt and is an awkward length untucked, so I needed to cover it since I haven't hemmed it yet.



{cardi: target/ skirt: h&m thrifted, blouse: jc pennies, belt: thrifted vintage, necklace: vintage rhinestone}

I see now how this cardigan has a bubble shape right above the hem and doesn't work with the belt, and I'm not feeling the pleated skirt either, but at least it helped control the shirt poofiness.... oh well, better luck next time!

Welcome to the world of fashion blogging! The white on white does indeed look good. I think it's because of the texture and print of the shirt underneath.

I think the white on white look is very effective. I actually wish I had more white in my wardrobe. Also love the project on Elaine's blog at the moment, I might try and participate in it as well.

Thank you for your comment! Very cute outfit, I think the white on white works well! I hate it when tops do that funny poof thing when you want to tuck them in, so annoying!

Cute blouse! I can definitely understand the whole annoying poof thing. It happens to me all the time. It may be the most annoying outfit issue ever! But you fixed it quite well. :)

You can earn $20 for completing a 20 minute survey!

Guess what? This is exactly what big companies are paying me for. They need to know what their customer needs and wants. So large companies pay $1,000,000's of dollars per month to the average person. In return, the average person, myself included, fills out surveys and gives them their opinion.
