Pirated

Yesterday I was flipping through an EW and saw a picture of Carey Mulligan in a still from The Great Gatsby. She was wearing a scarf tied over her hair and it looked so beautiful I knew I just had to try it. . .


 As soon as I came inside Arlie started squealing that she wanted to be "a pirate too!".

Ahoy.

I'm so sad that I got a new battery but my camera isn't really focusing any better. I've run through all the internet fixes, now I guess it's up to the professionals. Sad face.

thrifted scarf, top, jean jacket and necklace (worn as bracelet)
H&M skirt
Target tights
DV Dolce Vita shoes

Haha, you just got a kiddie compliment ;) I love that scarf though...and it adds some great detail/colour/texture to the outfit. Fun skirt! Someday I too will be daring enough to wear leather.

totally unrelated to this post, but Katie (from salt + pine) sent me a message over the weekend about meeting this year. I thought 'i'd love to, but how/when??' Ryan is being considered for a position that will require occasional travel to seattle, and when i heard i told him- oh maybe i can meet katie this year after all! now that i'm reading this post, i'm remembering YOU live in the area too!! (that would be really, really cool to finally meet you :))

Aaarrrrgh! Kidding! You look Fabulous my dear, especially love that skirt and top.

You look super cute. I am always trying to figure out the scarf thing because it looks fabulous on others. But when I put it on I feel like the guy in Bruce Springstein's band. That leather skirt is killer too. I think a winner all around. PLUS you get mad pirate props from your daughter. YEAH!
