what to wear~ power outfit

I have to admit I almost skipped out on this week's What to Wear segment.  A few reasons had me doubting this post; a)  I didn't know what a power outfit was (and am still not 100% sure..), b)  I can't recall ever feeling "powerful,"  c)  It was hard coming up with an outfit for this (but fast once I actually tried).
Buuut, I still really wanted to participate, and didn't want this little challenge to stop me.  I mean, I haven't missed a What to Wear since I started them, and I don't want to stop now, just because the topic is hard.
What I gathered from looking it up and asking Mike, was that a power outfit is something that makes you feel powerful or confident in.  I'm not big into power, but I like feeling confident, and I think that's how this shirt makes me feel when I wear it.  It's just so different, but so me, and I love it.  I was already wearing the shorts, but decided they went alright together.  Oooh, and this is the first time this year I put sandals on!  Woo!  I guess the shorts are sort of a big deal, and power-ish to me, because I just started wearing shorts like...last year.  I've always been too self-conscious to wear them, but I kind of just got over it, and don't care anymore.  I am kind of bummed at how pasty white I am, but that will most likely change if I keep wearing them, eh?

  1. I'm not exactly sure I would've had an idea either. I try to feel confident in everything I'm wearing but I'm not sure there's a certain piece of clothing or combo that really stands out. Doesn't matter anyway, I do like your outfit! That top is really pretty, I might have to DIY one like it!! xo

  2. Love all the colour! Those shorts are great. I wish I could find a nice pair of plaid ones for myself!

  3. wicked cute outfit! love the shirt. I wasn't totally sure what a power outfit was either haha.

  4. I like that this prompt managed to baffle all of us. You look super cute and I love the crazy pattern mixing you got going on! Most excellent!

  5. That shirt is pretty amazing. Love that we all had a unique interpretation of "power outfit" :) Keep rockin the shorts!!
