She’s Buckled Up on Navy

Category: My OutfitsEyeliah @ 10:00 am

Warning mini rant in this paragraph! Anybody watch Whip It yet from Miss Drew Barrymore? I’m halfway through (bedtime came early last night) and I am really enjoy the styling, characters (hello Juliette Lewis) and soundtrack.  What I am not happy with (SPOILER ALERT – skip to the outfit if you haven’t yet seen this movie) is the typical Hollywood story line direction it’s moving in, a pageant meet up just happens to be on the same day as the big game, Iron Maven just happens to overhear the one time Bliss mentions she is 17.  So let me guess….. she goes to the pageant thing with her mother, gives her inspirational speech where in the middle she confesses she has to leave and upsets her mother, goes to the big game – is winning but then Iron Maven calls her out for being underage so they are forced to forfeit the game and she will temporarily lose the support of her teammates, but don’t worry she will win them all back and her mom will be there to see it and start to support her roller-derbying ways.  Ugh, I hope I am wrong!

To The Outfit

Remember when I asked you for helpful suggestions for styling my white and navy skirt?
It was Jessica‘s idea I was dying to try first since I have the perfect navy striped top, then I added in Megan‘s suggestion for grey. Thanks ladies!

    Well now I’m dying to read what you had to say about Whip It, but I haven’t seen it yet! It’s next on my netflix que but with a very long wait 🙁

    The stripes are cute with that print 🙂

    Hey, this does look good together! I like that I tell others to mix prints, but I rarely do it myself! Haha.

    I haven’t seen Whip It, but it certainly sounds like we all know exactly what is going to happen in it… Ugh, I hate it when that happens. Love the stripes with the print, the outfit looks so effortlessly cool and fresh!

    Ha, just watched it the other night – you’re pretty close… I agree that it’s mostly eye candy, kinda fun, but nothing too memorable. I do think Ellen Page is pretty adorable. Love the boots!

    The movie is okay, but the soundtrack is kind of amazing. I downloaded it last week, and have listened to it too many times to count.

    Actually I’ve never heard of Whip It before, but the plot looks to be quite blah from your description >_< Anyway, Love that skirt! I'm looking forward to more mixing with it 😀
