Friday, March 26

Liberty of London (for Target), Baby Gap and vintagey hat from the local street market has been combined today to create a boho chic spring look. Leaving the house, I was pretty dang proud of myself. Until Riley was trying on her new shoes (Lelli Kelly's and SKR's) and the child next to Riley asked her mother if Riley was Amish.

.......Awesome. Nothing against Amish people, but long dresses, buns and bonnets are just not my thing. Needless to say, I was a little annoyed that this tween girl didn't understand my vision for this outfit. Minutes later, I realized she was a kid and while attempting to devalue her opinion in my head, I took the hat off of Riley and left the public eye. I usually ignore any comments about wardrobe as I live in Iowa and don't take much offense to what anyone says here anyway (No offense, for those who live near me and ARE fashion savvy, I still love you ;)).....but I don't want to have Riley get weird looks from other children. So enjoy my failed attempt, you will not see this hat again my friends.

CONTEST INFO: Please enter our randomly generated Coach keychain fashion log drawing by checking out my post from Wednesday and posting your ideas! I'd love to get some more people involved before the deadline this upcoming Wednesday, so be sure to check it out & tell your friends! :)


  1. The hat is not Amish. LOL! Put it on her again. She can pull it off just fine.
