Most Awkward Fashion Blogger Moment Ever?

Originally, I was going to write about how to winterize a summer dress, but I scrapped that idea because this story is way better.

OK so since I had a dentist appointment after work today, and my dentist is located at a mall, I figured I'd take a few outfit pics in the parking structure beforehand. Normally, I go to the top floor of the parking structure, which always seems to be deserted. But today it was under construction, so I tried to find a less occupied area of one of the other floors.

I found a good spot and parked my car right next to another car, which was the only other car around, and got out. I did notice the windows of the car next to me were steamed up, but I didn't think anything of it...

...Until I was outside holding my camera, and I saw a teenage (I assume) boy's head pop up from the backseat. Uhhhhh....awkward!

Needless to say, I scurried back into the car and drove to another floor, cracking up as I went. Ah youth, haha.

Dress: self-made; Cardigan: Rodarte for Target; Belt: Forever 21; Scarf: Boston Store; Tights: Missoni for Target; Socks: Target; Boots: Vince Camuto via giveaway

It's a good thing I took these pictures before my dentist appointment because half my face was numb afterwards.  Uggggghhhh, I hate the dentist.

By the way, my outfit today is almost a direct copy of this outfit on Thirty-Five Inch Inseam. I felt a little bare on top and knew the lace cardigan wouldn't cut it in my often chilly office, so I added the scarf.

Also, if you would like some tips on winterizing a summer dress, I found these helpful posts: How to Layer Underneath Dresses and Divine and Refined Look of the Day: Shirts under Dresses.

And if you want more layering tips, you can check out the rest of the wear*it Wednesday gang in cardigans at Paper Balloon Journal.



  1. You look amazing!! I love the colors and the styling!

  2. AWWWWWKKKKKWAAAAAARRRRRRDDDD. That's hilarious though. I love how you styled this outfit and your hair looks really cute pulled back like that!

  3. At least you weren't the cops (that may or may not have happened to me). I wonder what the kid thought when he saw you holding the camera, haha.

    That dress is so cute!

  4. Oh my gosh! Your version is great! I love it! Thanks for sharing :)

    Your awkward blogger moment is pretty priceless too, gotta love teenagers. hehe
