kinda, really




{skirt: Ark & Co via Bicyclette Boutique, tee: Urban Outfitters, watch: Portobello Market in London, mesh bracelet: TopShop, woven chain bracelet: DIY via Honestly WTF, photography by Kari}

Yes, I actually wore this skirt to take Ryley for a walk, and right after I wore it to the grocery store. And yes, I did get a few extra looks from a few grandmas in the produce section, but hey, I figure it's better to be overdressed than under dressed right?... or is that just my theory? I feel like there must be some affirming quote from Chanel or Audrey Hepburn out there somewhere.  In other news I finally tried out that amazing woven chain bracelet DIY from Honestly WTF - it's just as good as I imagined I love it!

Well I agree with you that it is better to be over dressed than under dressed. I find that most girls go out in their Lulu Lemon leggings and a t, and really, everyone is starting to look the same. I love that skirt, the waist detail is so pretty. Love your bracelets!

I am always the overdressed girl at the grocery store and I say embrace it :) That skirt is just fabulous- I have a friend who has a very similar (down to the braided belt waist line) one in coral that I adore, and I feel much the same about yours!

I think it's sooo much better to be overdressed than under dressed. And I don't think you were over dressed. I dress for my life, and that's a wonderful affair to me....even if all it involves is going to the park with my Baby :)

I've read so many great reviews about it :D

This is one of my favorite outfits so far! There is certainly nothing wrong with bringing a little glamour to the grocery store!

actually Audrey Hepburn said the exact opposite - that it's always better to be under dressed than over dressed.
