Hi everyone!

This outfit is one that I loved wearing in person today, but it just didn't translate well into outfit photos. Sometimes that happens, and what can you do? The colors are off, the shape is off, my poses are off. Eh, oh well. One of my favorite parts about having a fashion blog is posting all stages of my style. The high points and the low points, the hits and the misses. Sometimes I think it's nice to have an 'off'' outfit here and there because it shows I'm not a perfectly glossy magazine. I'm real and sometimes my outfits stink--there's always room for improvement and growing though!

This morning I got coffee with a sweet gal who reads my blog named Angela! She's going to Kent for fashion merchandising, as well, starting this semester and it was lovely to sit down over a cuppa cafe mocha and chat. Meeting blog readers is literally my favorite--you all make me feel so lucky. I think about it quite often what it would be like to actually get to meet all of you and how exciting that would be. I'm hoping to meet some European readers when I'm over there this fall and of course, if you're from the Ohio region email me so we can get together sometime! I'd love to meet you.

With much love, Lauren.

Well I think this outfit looks awesome on you. The colors in that dress are spectacular - especially paired with the minty-colored jacket. Those tights are super cool too. But I know what you mean about wearing an outfit and loving it and the pictures just not doing it justice.

It is so wonderful how positive an outlook you have on an outfit you consider to be such a flop.

I consider it daring and fun, a great pop of color on a dreary winter day. And wow, dear, those tights on you!!! The closer look was a small one but very enjoyable anyway :)

And I am not socially daft so much that I do not understand your invitation is for bloggers like yourself and not for the likes of me. Still, though, such a wonderful thought to see all that light, energy and beauty in person. So thank you for the thought :)

That dress looks absolutely amazing - I love the watercolour effect - and it goes so well with the pastel coat! I think it looks great in the pictures! (:
