Simply Sassy OOTD Bloopers

Hello everyone and welcome to the blooper reel from my Simply Sassy OOTD! This week has brought us double the outfits and double the laughs and I had such a great time shooting both of these looks. No matter how sad, exhausted, or burnt out I am feeling, nothing puts a pep back in my step quite like getting the creative juices flowing by styling an OOTD and taking pics. It is my instant dose of confidence to do something that I think I’m good at and feeling good while doing so. I am so glad that I have been holding true as best as I can to my 2023 blogging goal of more outfit posts and can’t wait to see what I come up with next! Now, let’s take a peek at these bloopers:

Lol, I have NO idea what this stank face was directed towards, but yikes!

Every morning when I work from home, I open the floor to Melvin and Penelope to get their exercise. They are the most adorable, distracting creatures on planet Earth and sometimes I feel like I’m the one getting the work out instead. While they are normally pretty good about managing their mischief, some days like today, they are especially on one which turns my whole morning into blooper filled chaos. In the past half hour since I have sat down, I have gotten up SIX times to tear them away from their beloved windowsill which they love to chew on. In this process, I only tripped once which is actually not too bad for me lol SMH.

Mel and P recently got a taste of adventure when they were out with Johnny as they evaded him and ended up in a completely non bunny proofed area: The game room. They had a blast thwarting all of Johnny’s attempts to bring them back to safety and thoroughly enjoyed hiding underneath our record player. I can tell after their exploration mission that they are ready to be on the move and Johnny and I have grand plans to perfect our bunny proofing game and allow them to free roam when we aren’t home.

This process is going to be one of trial and error and I just know it is going to be bloopers aplenty in the Miller household while we figure it out. Our little gremlins are SO clever and are very good at finding new and exciting ways to escape our cardboard bunny blockers and playpen fence. Mel and P are also very fast, turning these instances into utter fiascos. I’ll never forget the time I had to mute a conference call while I tried to find Mel when he made a jailbreak! But, hey, they still manage to make fiascos adorable and Johnny and I are just as obsessed with them as the day we brought them home. ❀

Stay tuned on lifewithlilred for more as Johnny and I attempt to transform our downstairs into a safe bunny haven and lot’s more OOTDs and bloopers coming soon… Bunny bloopers included!

Do you have any pet proofing advice? What is something silly that your pet does? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Simply Sassy OOTD

Simply Sassy OOTD

Hello everyone and welcome to the second look of my double OOTD week! My weekends have been less than relaxing for a while now and I knew I wouldn’t have had the time to do an OOTD shoot this past Saturday. So, I decided to change things up when I had a light workload last Thursday morning by doing my hair and makeup and taking pictures once I got home. This worked out really well for me and I am going to try to stick to that schedule to give me one less thing to worry about once the weekend rolls around.

The second outfit I shot didn’t come out as accordingly to plan as the first one did, but that’s okay because I ended up loving it! This look was put together on the fly and sometimes that’s the best way to go. Check it out:

Who? What? Wear?

Snakeskin Tie Back Top: Japna, TJMaxx

Retro Straight Leg Pants: Sincerely Jules, TJMaxx

Speech Bubble Heels: LFL, TJMaxx

Gold Hoop Earrings: Argentino Vivo, TJMaxx

Additional accessories are from Claire’s, American Eagle Outfitters, and Target

My original plan for this outfit was to style something to wear to the Cleveland botanical gardens, which I would love to go to this summer. My bestie, Cliff, let me borrow one of my favorite button down tops of his that featured jewel tone dried flowers for the pattern and I was excited to wear it. However, it just wasn’t happening once it was on. My husband is tall, but Cliff is even taller and I was swimming in his shirt no matter what I did to try and make it better. Since the look I had in mind crumbled to pieces, I ended up winging it!

I still wanted to wear my slacks by Sincerely Jules since they are brand new and began building my outfit from there. These pants are very different than anything I own and I think that’s why I like them so much, despite their simplicity. They fit perfectly and hug my body in all of the right places without being too tight. After surveying myself in the mirror with them on, I decided that they could work for a date night rather than a date day and the rest of the look came easily once I had an occasion in mind.

The Sincerely Jules pants were an ideal neutral and it gave me free reign to pair them with pretty much whatever. To invoke some date night sex appeal, I chose my snakeskin patterned tie back top by Japna. When I tried my pants on in the fitting room, I definitely pictured them more for work and daytime wear. It wasn’t until I put the top on that I realized they could be used for a night out too because I thought I looked slammin! I loved how my tattoos popped against the palette I created and the peek a boo cutouts at the waist and back added that date night flare that I was looking for.

For shoes, I chose an adorable pair of speech bubble heels by LFL for an extra dose of sass. These shoes are just pure fun and further enhanced the night on the town vibe. The pants also covered up the low-ish ankle strap on the heels to give me a seamless leg line and add some length. As much as I love these shoes, I rarely get to wear them because the ankle strap can be problematic so this was a nice bonus for me! They also introduced a new texture among the sheen of the top and cloth pants and we all know that mixing textures appropriately is a great way to make the eyes dance!

After the base of my OOTD was settled, it was time to accessorize. I didn’t want to go overboard with jewelry since a fair amount of my tattoos were visible so I kept things simple. I went with my favorite pair of Argentino Vivo hoops to add some movement as the clothing was more form fitting. Then, I put on a few statement rings and bracelets for a blingy pop without being distracting and called it a day. πŸ˜€

Although this is not what I had in mind at all for my second outfit, I am beyond happy with how my Simply Sassy OOTD turned out! I felt so good and confident in this look and I can definitely picture myself wearing it for a night out with Johnny!

Do you plan outfits or wing them? What was something that you thought would look really good and didn’t end up working? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
