How We Wore It: Summer Skirt

Hi friends! 
This week I was able to collaborate with a few other bloggers to do a "How We Wore It" post. The inspiration was this cute look from Elevate Everyday.

I love the casual chambray top tied up with the pretty soft textured skirt. I immediately thought of a few pieces I had in my closet that I could use to imitate this look. I went with a plain white top with my go to jean jacket and a muted pink skirt.

Of course McKinlee had to get in on the action too. She seriously LOVED doing this. Not so much the actual holding still part, but the getting dressed up and the before and after part.

And then I told her to give us a no smile model face and this is what we got. She cracks me up! When we took these pictures, I packed a change of clothes so she could play on the playground afterward. When we went to the playground today, she grabbed her sparkly shoes for our "shoot." I had to explain to her that we weren't taking pictures today and that was a special one time thing.

McKinlee- Dress: Old Navy  

We had a lot of fun getting outside and posing for daddy. It quickly turned to a flower picking session, and then a stick finding mission. -Busy busy toddler! Now if you want to see how the other girls wore this look check them out below and if you're interested in being a part of next month's "How We Wore It", go here. Thanks for reading!

  1. Your little girl is so cute! Love her "no smile" face! Love a jean jacket! It's a perfect layering piece and goes with EVERYTHING! So fun to collaborate!

  2. The jean jacket is a great idea in place of the chambray. I always forget how good they look!

  3. What an adorable button up skirt!

  4. I love that skirt! I wish I could pull it off!!! Saying hi from the HWWI collaboration :)

  5. So sweet!! McKinlee is such a great little model. :) I LOVE that you two coordinated. I like to try to coordinate with my little as much as possible, while she still thinks it's cool.

  6. I have been wanting a jean jacket forever now. Haven't had one in YEARS. I love how you paired it with your outfit. And of of course your little girl is adorable!
