Compliments


Aren't compliments just the best?  When I receive a compliment on one of my outfits, I know I've gotten it right...especially when the compliment comes from a very stylish friend. 

This ensemble garnered a couple of compliments which always leads me to contemplate, what makes this outfit cuter than others.  I really think it comes down to fit!  This outfit is comprised of pieces that are favorites, that I know fit well and that I don't constantly have to readjust (yay for working towards style resolution #3).  Also, when I observe the outfits of other bloggers as well as those of women I see out and about, it's always the girls with the well-fitting clothes that strike me as the most well dressed.  Knowing this, I'm working on being much more aware of fit so that I look as put together as I want to be.


This cardigan is one of my favorites since its neutral color works with just about any outfit and it fits well.  For these reasons, it was a natural choice to layer over one of my favorite comfortable-yet-polished shirts.  Throw-on a trendy tassel necklace and voilà, I feel put together!

To you, what makes one outfit cuter than another?  What is elusive quality that makes an ensemble more "put together" than others?

  1. This outfit is cute, no wonder you got compliments on it! Fit and comfort (which kind of go together, don't they) are key ingredients for a favorite outfit for me.

    1. Thanks, Inge! I am focusing more and more on fit and comfort. It seems like it should be so easy but sometimes it's tricky...I love the idea of an outfit but it just isn't comfortable. I'm working on giving-up those kinds of outfits. Do you ever have the same problem?

  2. I am not at all surprised you got compliments on your outfit. It really is so cute and everything does fit you well. I also really like that you've got a little bit of blue-on-blue going on - I definitely think that makes it even more original. You look great!

    1. Thanks, Ashley! I didn't even think about the blue-on-blue aspect :)

  3. I've never really thought about fit making something looking better, but thinking about it, some of my fav outfit posts have been those that fit the best!

    I love this shirt on you, very a la mode and all that ;)
