21 Day Challenge, Day 14: Be a Copycat

(Update: The votes say tucked, so I win! When I showed GH the results he responded with, "Oh, I never thought I would win. But it just goes to show that a huge group of women can be wrong . . . " And then he jumped away quickly.)

Recently Land's End had this massive clearance sale and I bought a new swimsuit for me (to replace my 5-years-old Land's End swimsuit), rash guards and trunks for TDL's next two summers (BOOM!) and this seersucker skirt, which was reduced from $60 to $9.


from Land's End


As soon as I saw this thing I knew I needed this skirt, a crisp white button-up, and a pair of nude pumps--maybe something like these.

Chinese Laundry "New Love" pumps


But then I remembered the part where I only had $9 to spend, so I settled. For the shirt, I used an almost-white hand-me-down that I already own, and for the shoes, I decided to do some additional copying:



Before I post the pic I need to say that GH and I disagree on which looks better: tucked or un. So I'm showing both versions, without saying who favors who, and anyone who wants to can chime in with their vote so that one of us can win the argument discussion.

tucked

untucked
The shirt is from Banana Republic, the skirt is from Land's End, and the shoes are my wedding shoes from Target.

What? No modeling of the new swimsuit? ;-0

And I too like it tucked.

I like it tucked, and my guess is you do too, only because my husband thinks its weird when I tuck shirts into my skirts, so I'm acting like this is a Man Thing.

Tucked. I love the shoes and the skirt. What great inspiration!

And seriously, wasn't that sale awesome!?

You should have made a poll. (Um, yes I did apparently just boss you around. I am turning into my mother.)

One more vote for tucked.

Absolutely tucked!

With your great figure, definitely tucked! You look fantastic.

That is a cute skirt, and I love your inspiration. I vote tucked, also. I just don't think Dorothy was an untucked kind of girl.

Oh, I didn't even think about copying a movie! Genius.

Tucked vs untucked - it depends on what you are going for. If you want long legs, tucked. If you want a long torso, untucked!

By the way, I am loving your personal fashion show. I have no time to read blogs right now, but I still manage to come see what you are wearing. (It is all about priorities, right?)

I vote tucked.

I will join the masses and vote tucked. And now you have me coveting those nude pumps...

Normally, I'm a fan of the untucked, but with that skirt, I vote for tucked!

Breanne said... [reply]

wow, I was thinking I liked it untucked, but now after reading the comments (all: tucked) I feel silly. *hide*

I bought that same skirt from the Land's End sale & am wearing it today for the 21 day challenge! Mine is pink though, and I tucked in my white shirt. I vote tucked too.
