You ever put together an outfit in your mind or on a hanger and think to yourself, "man, I am gonna look so fierceee in this!" Well that's initially what I had thought when I put together this outfit on a hanger, but when I actually put it on one morning, it wasn't as fierce as I was expecting. Something about the button up with the blazer felt and looked too bulky to me. Unfortunately I don't give myself enough time in the morning to pick out another outfit, so I was stuck wearing it. Does it look too bulky to you? I love the navy gingham with the coral so I really wanted this outfit to work! What do you think I could change to make it work?


  1. Definitely not too bulky at all! I love the color combo - definitely a little bit Americana!

  2. I like the shirt with the blazer. I don't think it looks too bulky. I have been really into gingham button-ups lately.

  6. It doesn't look bulky in the pictures, so I think it's pretty cute! And I totally want to steal those shoes!!

  7. Does not look bulky at all. Love it with the leopard heels!


  8. I don't think it looks bulky at all! You look great! I'm actually planning to wear a button-down with a blazer tomorrow and it's one of those outfits that in my head is totally perfect but I AM sorta worried that it won't hold up to my expectations once I actually put it on.

  9. I can definitely relate to this feeling-- why is it that outfits sometimes don't translate from hanger to body? I don't think this looks bulky on you at all, and I think given that your pants are straight leg (skinny?) it's good to balance them with volume on the top!

  10. I really like the way this looks--you DO look fierce!! Coral + navy is definitely one of my favorite combinations :)

  11. I definitely don't think this is bulky! I love look, and those heels are great.

  12. I don't think it looks bulky at all actually! That's a very common look I see on Pinterest. The colors match surprisingly well too. Love those heels!
