Picnic Lookbook

J. Crew Keeper Shirt  |  Asos Skirt   |  

Celine Mini Luggage Tote  |  Christian Louboutin Pumps  |

t+j Designs jewelry:  Crystal Cuff (new arrival & adjustable for smaller wrists!)  |

Gold Faux Stack Bangle  |  Red Colorblock Cuff

I feel in love with this skirt on Asos a while back and then saw it on a stylish girl when I was pregnant. I instantly had fashion envy and decided to take the plunge and buy the skirt although I was 8 months pregnant.  Irrational yes, but how happy am I now that I can sport this gingham skirt :)?  When I came down the stairs, my husband said, “Are you going to a picnic?” It may be one of those fashion items that men don’t understand, but I still love.    Tablecloth or skirt, it’s a great summer piece!

Do you own anything your significant other doesn’t understand as a fashion item?

    I have many of those items =) I love the skirt on you though. It's such a statement piece. At least, when it's time for a picnic with Grant, you'll have the perfect piece to wear.

    Haha! I love that your hubby just doesn't "get it!" My husband is the same. I have a pair of CL's with a platform and he calls them my "clubfoot" heels. He's crazy, but at least he still goes out in public with me. I should worry when he refuses to leave the house with me. I am still swooning everytime you post your gorgeous Celine bag!
