An Outfit (Deconstructed) ...

I stepped out of my comfort zone a bit for this outfit...

I'm normally not so much a belt girl, much less a belt + three necklaces at the same time girl, but when you "borrow"* your six-year old's dress to wear as a top, you're allowed to throw caution to the wind, I think...

*As long as we're talking about borrowing, I should say that I borrowed (or shamelessly stole, whatever) the "kid's dress as top' idea from the far more stylish (and tinier) than me Christine. Only she wore the kid's dress as, wait for it... a grown-up dress. And she rocked it.



The Details:

  • Tank (kid's dress) -- CHAKRA
  • Belt -- Madewell
  • Necklaces -- Thrifted
  • Skirt -- Thrifted
  • Wedges -- Old Navy

Looks great! I'm a total belt girl, it's sort of like a scarf...feels secure!

The belt definitely gives a more refined and constructed feel to the look. I love it!

Joslyn, you are my style inspiration! Not in terms of copying your style (my one attempt to wear a dress over jeans was horrifying) but moreso that you remind me how imporant it is that we each express ourselves genuinely in the way we present ourselves to the world each day.

I love this running feature on your blog. :)
