Get ready for some big, cheesy smiles. I couldn’t help myself; Raines – my six year old – took these pictures. (I set everything up, it’s not like he’s figuring out ISO settings or anything, but still. I couldn’t believe how well these turned out.)
Remember my old graphic tee + bandage mini outfit? (Of course you don’t but just nod politely I do have a point here….) anyway, if you (don’t) recall, I wore that outfit to the Franklin Institute’s Spy exhibit and ended up with a wardrobe malfunction due to lack of skirt. So….yeah. Mental note: Find longer skirt
A year later, I think I’ve found it. This pencil skirt is done in a soft jersey (similar to the ones Target had a while back) so it feels like you are wearing a t-shirt on your legs. (Actually, that sounds horrible scratch that.) WHATEVER. The skirt is comfortable.
My last remaining issue was the pencil skirt + flats combo. It shortens the legs, your know? For a small girl, it’s pretty tough to pull off. But I found that half-tucking the tee (to show off a higher waist) helped to elongate the legs, making up for the flats. Thoughts?
Shop The Post
And just in case the widget doesn’t display properly…I’ll do it the old-fashioned way, too.
skirt: Weston Wear Sandee Skirt, currently on sale for $72
bag: Marc Jacobs pretty nylon hobo (old)…but the Marc Jacobs Pretty Nylon Sasha is pretty close
on Pax: Mini Rodini sweatshirt and shorts, Saltwater sandals (Actually Yoox has a ton of Mini Rodini on sale…I’ve updated the Babies and Kids Shop (I’d link directly to the Mini Rodini section on Yoox, but their search is a disaster.)
And even an artsy shot. Nice one, Raines.
ps. I sat Mike down tonight to help me cull through the Men’s section of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’ll talk about it more tomorrow, but you can get links to our favs now in our Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Shop.
