167 - Neon Floral

Black Velvet Crop Top - American Apparel, Pants - Urban Outfitters, Belt - Vintage (gift from my boyfriend), Shoes - JC, Jewelry - Unearthen + Konstantino + Vintage

Why, hello. I'm just standing here in a windy alley, letting my hair get thrown about in an attractive manner. ***wheeeeeeeeeeeew** (that's wind noise, okay?)

I really love this outfit, but I cannot believe I decided to pair these shoes with it. I am having major shoe regret when I look at these photos! I should have worn black creepers. Ugh. 

 Fellow bloggers, do you ever do this? Do you photograph and outfit, then look at it afterwards and drive yourself crazy with one thing you wish you would have done differently?

  1. I am jealous over your awesome flower power pants. The creepers definitely would have made my day, but I love your current shoe choice as well!
    I love following your blog. Your outfits are so fun!

  7. I really do love your style, you're incredily unique- dispite what you said in your video!! You really inspire me.
    I do this all the time, look back and think why didn't I wear these shoes, or that jacket instead.
    I love your pants, the print is so lovely.

  8. I do have this issue, today even. I do, however, think that this outfit kicks ass and I am loving your green hair. I love the the pants!

  9. The creepers would have amped it up, sure, but your current shoes aren't so bad either! Those pants are heavenly, just saying.

  10. Super stunning chica, you are beautiful. I love you. And you're right on the creepers - I always have afterthoughts once i'm out the door.

  11. I always regret wearing things when I look back at the photos! So annoying!
    This outfit is PERFECT, I am literally in love with your hair! You have amazing style, definitely one of my favourite bloggers. Could you tell me what camera/lens you use? I have a Canon 600D but am looking to make the most of it instead of just using the auto settings! Your photos look amazing and so professional!

    1. Thanks Lucy! I actually don't own a camera -- I coerce my friends and loved ones into taking pictures for me. Blake Jacobsen photographed these and he has a Canon 5D Mark II. Usually my photos are taken on a Canon T2i, though. Blake's camera is extra-super-fancy compared to the T2i, but the T2i appears to get the job done! Most often, it's a 50mm lens.

  12. gahhh i have outfit regret way too often, like, in normal life, too. but don't fret, these look awesome. In regards to your last post: yay looking like a video game/cartoon character, i think this might be the best way to live.

  13. Just did with my second to last outfit post! I should of known better, I don't dig myself in shorts, I am entirely too self critical, so why I went with flatter that flat boots... I don't know. I can totally see your outfit with creepers, but it still looks nice how you styled it first.

  14. WHATTT this outfit is so perfect i'm speechless! everything from the pants to the jewelry! You look stunning Madeline.

    And I totally relate to you on wishing I had added or taken away something from an outfit after i've shot it, but I guess that's just part of our creativity that's ever changing!

  15. no regrets, you look smashing!! I can't believe how good those pants look with your hair, and the hip slung belt with it? geeeenius I say!

  16. "Do you photograph and outfit, then look at it afterwards and drive yourself crazy with one thing you wish you would have done differently?"

    Ohh yes. For the longest time my shoe collection was pathetic, so I would contantly regret my shoe decisions. I also have an adorable belt that I've had for god know's how long, and I lost it in a box in the closet. I found it last week, and was raging at all of the outfits I wanted to wear it with for a whole freaking year. Gah.

    I have to admit, though, the outfit looks pretty awesome with your shoe choice. It really works with the belt, and the pattern style of the pants.

    Oh right, your pants! The fabric is exactly like what my dress in my most recent outfit is made of! Let me guess, the tag says Insight? ♥ (I've also seen a shirt made with the same fabric on Nasty Gal!)

  17. Awesome outfit, as always :))
    And yes, I always find something wrong with my photos afterwards.

  18. ah yes, I do that all the time! You take photos then open your closet later and think to yourself, "Why didn't I wear those?" Half the time the proportions or the colours are just so much better with the outfit, than the shoes you actually did wear. Here, those shoes you're wearing are super kickass, but I can see wear a creeper would have an entirely different effect....

    Also, your hair is amazing! I sent a link to a friend of mine and she's thinking of trying it out as well. The colour seperation of your hair makes the green in your pants really pop out, which is great.

  19. so beautiful!
    these pics are awesome *-*

  20. Love this! I always feel like a real model when the wind is in my hair haha and start swooshing it around like a professional

    I do do that ALL OF THE TIME with my outfits but i actually really like the shoes you have put with it here they are a less obvious choice.

    Also I never thought I would ever see you in 'trendy' floral trousers but you have really made them your own with the crazy (but amazing) hair, makeup, belt and cropped top

    Very cool, very cool indeed

  23. Ha! I don't have enough clothes to just wish it - I wear those shoes or whatever it may be the next time I wear the outfit. And the next and the next and the next...

    Love the outfit - especially the pants.

  24. You are TOO COOL. LOVE THIS. LOVE EVERYTHING. Especially the print of those pants!

  25. Your hair + your outfit makes such an amazing combination!

  26. i do regret some things quite often, and it’s usually my choice of shoewear — therefore, i just don’t take pictures with my shoes in them :D
    love your floral pants though! i want a pair, but i’m on the fence about it.

  28. i do agree that those shoes look good with the look. but i do have a same problem sometimes when i see the outcome :)

  29. I actually do that a lot with my outfits as well! It seems like viewing your outfit in a mirror is completely different from seeing it through a camera. Regardless, this is AWESOME. I love the belt/basically everything about it. Oh, and your hair is just great. You rule my world.

  36. You look freakin' hot. Especially that last photo - I adore it so much! The neon green hair is SICK. I never wanted neon green hair until now. I'll have to add that to my list of colors to dye it when I start dying my hair. I want to wait a while though, because I guess I take pride in the fact that I've never dyed my hair. It's weird, I love crazy hair colors, I just want to put it off as long as possible for myself. And I totally know what you mean about regretting one silly little thing in blog pictures. Sometimes I forget jewelry or eyeliner or something, but usually it's BandAid issues. I am so clumsy and I always happen to cut myself on a photo shoot day. Next time I'm wearing a cute outfit I need to stay away from sharp objects. But I have to shave my legs for photos, and razors destroy me every time. Gosh, I need more pants.

  37. I just wanted to say I absolutely adore these photos, your friend Blake has some mad photo-taking skills, love the colors ! I adore how you paired up that belt w/the printed pants, your new hair came out beautifully too, looks awesomesauce. x

  38. Ohh my I have it all the time.. :P even though the pictures are nice I am thinking I should have worn this or that. I thought nobody else had it. Now I feel much better that I'm not alone. However I think that those shoes you're wearing on the photo are great, and creepers would be nice as well :)

  39. I am NUTS for your hair colour right now! it's just brilliant. Looks really nice on you.

  40. New to your blog and really enjoying it, thanks! I get shoe remorse all the time, however I love yours w this outfit. I'm just gonna think more about what you said in another post, about how your gave outfits don't get as much response as ones you are kind of "eh" about. Some people will like it, so that's as good an outcome as any. :)
