Kid Logic

Outfit Details:

tee - Joe Fresh, skirt - Winners, belt - H&M, shoes - Joe Fresh, necklace - gifted

Yesterday, I told Maya that I wanted to be a kid because kids have so much cool stuff.

"Then you shouldn't eat anything" she replied.


"Because eating makes you grow big and tall. So if you don't eat, then you'll grow smaller like a kid!"

Kid logic...

I found this skirt in the dead of winter marked down to $11. Seriously just $11. I was so thrilled that I just might have given a little happy dance in the store (just a subtle one).  And who wouldn't?  Stripes, full skirt, paper bag waist (we'll ignore the fact that it might make me look just a lil bit wide), cool asymmetrical details? WINNING!

I later discovered a ribbon tie on the inside part of the skirt (right below that flap pocket) and a button near the waistline. If you button the ribbon, it makes the skirt hem the same length all around rather than asymmetrical, and causes a funky bustle effect.  EPIC WINNING!

This anchor tee that I bought from Joe Fresh reminds me a lot of the whimsical tees that Anthropologie sells. It came in both this blue on cream colour, as well as a pink on navy colour. I couldn't resist buying both of them, although I justify the purchases because I bought one fitted and one big for a slouchier fit.  Hmmm, I see where Maya just might have gotten her brand of logic from.

I love everything about this outfit! It is fantastic! Nautical but not over-the-top, fun little prints, cute details - big winner!

Hahaha - I bought the exact same top in both colours, too! I paired the white one with my Lost Time skirt from Anthro recently and loved the combo :) You look adorable here and I love the super cheap skirt! Hooray for a good deal!

Ohh, Maya sounds adorable! I love it when kids say things like that. Love the light colors in your outfit.

Love this casual look. I'm surprised that the skirt only cost you $11! That's a bargain. It looks like it's worth more than that. Also think the anchor tee is really cute. Looks like something Anthro has stocked.
