Blouse: Thrifted Jumper: Vintage Shoes: Frye

My boyfriend likes to call this jumper-esque number my Sound of Music Dress.  Its a bit like female lederhosen, but without all the cool leather.  Instead of wearing it up, I decided to let it all hang out & match it with a blouse and a belt.  

 On a side note, its quite rainy today, which equates to a fantastic & relaxing day off here by the beach.  Hope that you're all having a great weekend!

It looks so warm... it was pretty much dark outside all day today up near SF. :(

That's really creative to wear that without the bib up! And it does seem a little reminiscent of the outfits the kids wear in The Sound of Music, which I've always thought were really cool. Haha.

That is such a cute idea!! I love how you wore the jumper!! I really like your blouse and your briefcase as well- I think that together, they gave the outfit a sort of 1940's feel.

I really like your personal style- I'm following you now! :D

The problem is for mostbeginnersis that they are so keen to playat first, that they dont take the time to learn properly, and they soon give up. This is particularly true for young people.
