What the Kids are Wearing

7.09.2012


{ F21 top, ring, & flats | skirt c/o Sugarlips | vintage belt & watch | Target sunnies | Nine West bag }

I wore this outfit to a recent family outing and as I was saying hello to everyone, my grandma gave me a quizzical look and said, "That doesn't match." I was kind of taken aback not knowing how to respond to that. Uhhh... thanks? To break the awkwardness, she quickly said, "But that's what the kids are wearing these days, right? Mismatched clothes?" lol! Nice save, Grams.

Regardless if I match or not, I'm still obsessing over this skirt. It has two effects on me: one where I just wanna twirl around like a little schoolgirl (I'm so mature), and two, one that makes me wanna pick up an accordion to play. Besides that, I adore these three different colors implemented! I mean seriously, color-blocking and pleats all in one skirt?! Yes please!

  13. Hahah, that's a very Grandma thing to say. :P It's hard for today's fashion to be completely understood by the previous generations, so it's awesome she's so free about it.
    Cute outfit!

  14. I love this, I just wore the exact same sugarlips skirt and couldn't think of how to pair it with anything colorful (or mismatched as your grandma would say) but you look amazing and I think i'll have to copy this combination soon! :)

  15. I bursted out laughing when I read what your grandma said because mine says things like that too! To me, your skirt is neutral so a pink top goes well with it. Great outfit Rachel :)
