Down by the river

I went out to dinner with my family on Wednesday night at a restaurant on the waterfront, and since I knew we would be eating copious amounts of delicious Italian food, I wore my most forgiving skirt. (Meaning: it has a really stretchy waist.) This outfit is comprised entirely of those closet basics that I keep coming back to time and again - simple skirt, pretty top, comfy heels. Really, this top wouldn't work with a patterned skirt - it's so charming that it needs to be the center of attention of whatever outfit it's in. (Like this one. And this one.)

PS - Did anyone else think of the Chris Farley sketch when they read the title? Because I sure did :)

Blouse and skirt: Anthropologie
Coat: from my mom (purchased at an estate sale)
Shoes and belt: Urban Outfitters
Sunglasses: Oscar de la Renta from TJ Maxx
Bracelets: Charlotte Russe and my mom


  1. ah yes, a nice forgiving skirt is always a plus when chowing down tons of pasta!

    love those wedges too!

  2. :)) It took me a while to remember what Chris Farley sketch you were talking about. "Living in a van down by the river"... David Spade was trying so hard not to laugh during that.

    Love the blouse and your flower bracelet!

  3. Oh that blouse is beautiful, the ruffles are so pretty! And I love the jacket with your hair colour, you always wear such perfect combinations for your colouring. Thank you for the comment on my post re. pattern mixing btw, you're very sweet!

    Have a lovely weekend

  4. I love this top. LOVE it - I kind of want to steal it. I also really like that you've paired it with a navy skirt - the color contrast is really nice, and the simplicity of the skirt makes the detail in the shirt stand out.
