Open to Interpretation

Freckles in April OTI

I was totally excited to hop on the Open to Interpretation Bandwagon. Here's the prompt:

And my take on it...

Sweater: Gap
Shirt: Forever 21
Skinnies: H&M
Booties: Zappos
Necklace & hat: old

When I saw this prompt, I actually laughed out loud. Not because it isn't a great prompt (it is) or because I didn't know what to do with it (I actually had several ideas for different combos), but because of the hat.

When Dan and I were in college, he had this big furry Eskimo hat, and like any sweet and kind girlfriend, I made fun of him incessantly for it. Then today I ate a very large slice of humble pie when I asked to borrow it. For a fashion post.
This prompt was also great for letting me know when I need to give up on an article of clothing. I originally wore it with a chunky pink sweater that I dearly loved several years ago. I keep thinking I might wear it at some point, and I finally tried it out with this. While it made the outfit look a little more "authentic" to the original, I just felt frumpy and not cute all day. So the moral of this story is when you are deciding whether to keep an old pink sweater, see if you like it with a somewhat ridiculous furry hat first.

Oh, and these pictures? Had to be taken while a bunch of construction workers were around our condo complex. One kept giving me weird looks and I couldn't figure out why until I realized that I was taking pictures of myself in a weird hat. "Christmas cards?" he asked. "Um, no, it's for a...project."

Thanks to Kayla, Erica & Amy for letting us join!


  1. Super cute look. Those booties are adorable!

  2. You are so cute! I really love your booties. I've been ignoring them because I didn't really love them when they first came out...but I might have to change my mind. There are some awfully cute ones around!

  3. I love the hat! And despite my original disliking of booties in general, I am quickly being swayed by cute ones like these!

  4. Way cute! I love the booties and the stolen hat. ;)

  5. Haha! That hat is the cherry on top of a fantastic outfit! and you are so bold to take photos around other people - I just hide on our roof. Which...really isn't hiding, but I pretend it is. You look fabulous and thanks for participating!

  7. Haha! I love that wore the hat in at least one picture!

  8. love that *you* wore the brain works faster than my fingers :)

  9. Ha, I love the hat! ;) I actually love your whole look! I need to get myself a sweater that works with layering tees because I'm loving the way this looks!

  10. I LOVE how you interpreted this outfit! I love the thin layered sweater on top and the black pants. And the shoes, oh the shoes. So cute, Preethi! Thanks for joining in!

  11. Ha ha! I love the hat, but the shoes I'd borrow in a heartbeat! :) Love your outfit! Thanks for the comment.

  12. That hat is SO awesome. But my favorite part is the rolled pants with those shoes. Fantastic! Glad you decided to participate!
