Outfies? Can they be a thing?

Today, you receive crappy iPhone pictures. Some ladies have mastered the art of outfies (do you think I can make that word happen? It's like selfie meets outfit: outfies. Or is it like fetch from Mean Girls; I can't make it happen?) with the iPhone, but I have not. I want to blame it on the terrible apartment lighting, to which the let's-paint-the-walls-ceilings-and-baseboards-all-the-same-color room certainly contributes. Anyway, do you ever love an outfit so much that it must be memorialized in any way possible, no matter how grainy and terrible the photo quality is? Today's outfit might seem like nothing spectacular, but it scored me many compliments. Plus, I felt great wearing it, and who doesn't want to applaud an outfit like that? (Answer: anyone who does not openly and frequently post pictures of him or herself online.)

There's nothing a great scarf, comfortable heels, and a perfectly fitting dress cannot tackle.  Am I right?

The Look:
Scarf: Target (last year)
Earrings: Francesca's (recent)
Dress: J.Crew Factory (I got it during a 50% off promotion. It's a comfortable dress with sleeves. Even though I'm not Catholic, I attend a lot of Catholic-type functions, so I love me a dress with sleeves. I believe in respecting the religious building I stand inside, and I know you technically shouldn't have bare shoulders in a Catholic church.)
Shoes: J.Crew Factory Sylvia wedges (which might be the best shoe purchase I've ever lie...and they were 50% off)


  1. It's definitely cute! No wonder you got so many compliments!

  2. Classic but so darn cute! You deserved all of those compliments!

  3. I have been looking for a dress with sleeves for what seems like ages! I can't believe I missed this one! I guess I'll just have to live vicariously through you. That is such a great scarf, I love the way this outfit came together.

  4. I'm always looking for dresses with sleeves! This one is pretty perfect, and I love it with your scarf. The earrings are the cutest little pops of color too!

  5. I love this term. At first when I read your headline I was confused but now I totally get it. There is totally such a thing and you are rocking it!

  6. For some reason, your iPhone pictures come out amazingly crisp so I wouldn't worry too much about it! Outfies are perfect. I think we should all start calling these pictures by that name :)

    I love your dress! I like that this outfit is simple yet totally polished and even pretty dressed up. Every time you mention those heels, you make me curious about them and make me want to try them for myself but I'm too afraid to buy them, have them not work out or not fit and have to pay to ship them back :/ That scarf is just lovely and pairs nicely with your navy dress and little green earrings.

  7. You could add the red, white, and blue scarf from my blog post today to this outfit for July 4th! Perfect! Chic and comfy for the festivities!! Blessings! Susan

  8. I'm stuck with outfies this week, because I'm in a hotel and I don't even have a balcony! I'm glad you shared this look, even with the mirror pics. It's super cute!

  9. Outfies, hahahaha! I really love this outfit, Danielle. You look amazing in that dress, and I love the colors in your scarf as well.


Feel free to throw some witticisms my way.
