Maroon + Mustard Stripes

I haven't been feeling too well the past week or so. But for whatever reason, putting on real clothes the other day actually made me feel a little better. :) 

This outfit has been in my repertoire for awhile. All of the pieces are old so it, unfortunately, has taken a back seat to other newer pieces/outfits. But we've been experiencing unseasonably warm weather here in Dallas so I figured I needed to work it in before sweater and boot season is over. 

It was a busy day so I wasn't able to take any pics until the end of the day. This is how I wore it all day...chambray tucked in the front (out in the back) with the leopard belt. 

So imagine my shock when I looked at the first round of pics and realized that my thighs look very hamhock-ish. Very.

This was my reaction. :|

What can I say? I have big juicy legs. It's hereditary. :)

So I untucked the shirt and instantly liked the outfit 10x better. Too bad I didn't realize it until the end of the day. ha! Ah well. I felt cute, so I guess that's all that matters, right?

  1. I havnt been feeling well either. Somehting is going around, some sinus/upper respiratory something or other that everyone seems to have... i had the same discussion with myself this morning... i dont want to dress up cute today but i knew doing so would make me feel better, and it does make me feel more productive! and your thighs most definately do not look ham-ish. you look like a gorgeous stylish woman with a great figure.

  2. Isn't it great to rediscover things in your closet? And I laughed out loud at the ham-hockish. Rock those curves! You look great.

  3. I think you look super cute, but I can totally relate to hamhock thighs, so I know what you mean! I especially see it in pictures. I will think I look all cute, and then I'll see a picture and gasp. ha! You look great, though! Found you through Shanna's linkup :)

  4. Love the color combination! I'm sure your hubby loves those hamhocks! :)

  5. Listen I have thicker thighs too and there is NOTHING wrong with it. I am proud of every inch. You look great girl, I love the oxblood and bright yellow :)

  6. You look fantastic both ways!


  7. I love this color combo, and I've always loved stripes over chambray. And girl...I have the same thighs. I just learned to love them :)

  8. The striped cardigan looks so cute with the chambray! I think you could've left the shirt tucked but you gotta do what makes you comfortable :)

  10. You look great....I hope you feel better soon.

  11. Embrace those curves m'dear! You look great :)

  12. Angie I love both looks actually! The belt in the first was really cute And I have thick thighs too and think they are Cute. So you look just fine! Hope you feel better and love the high bun!

  13. I'm sorry you haven't felt well lately. Isn't amazing how just putting on real clothes can make us feel a bit better? You look beautiful in BOTH pictures!!

  14. Totally with you on the hamhockish legs hahah. Sometimes I go a whole day tucked in before catching my reflection and realizing how wide my hips are looking on my smallish body. So awkward. Love your outfit though!

  15. Hi Angela I am a new follower! I love how you pieced the outfit together! I understand having thick thighs! I have learned to embrace them and like you and I have learned how to style an outfit so it flatters my curves. This is so funny because I remember earlier this month I stood in the mirror for about 30 minutes going back and forth about tucking in a shirt because I was like they make my thighs look huge, but then I kind of liked how slim it made my waist look with the shirt tucked in. Your beautiful and have a great eye for fashion! & LoL at Ne Ne's faces, I have had those moments too when looking at pictures of myself! I hope you continue to feel better!

  16. Dressing up always makes me feel better too! I think you should embrace your legs! A lot of men love a girl with thighs! I used to have thunder thighs in high school from dancing a lot and I lost them in college... sounds crazy but I kinda miss em! They were just something about me that made me :) I love this outfit on you... tucked in and out! I love that you added the yellow with the maroon!
