Open to Interpretation

27 February 2013


Kayla and Erica are graciously allowing me to join them for another round of Open to Interpretation. Here's Erica's pick:


And here's my interpretation:


It's not every day that I get to bust out my burgundy velvet. Nay! I reserve it for Saturday night live trips to Target with one child to hunt and gather essentials like chocolate chips, cream cheese, calcium chews, and the Almanac for Alliteration Addicts.

Simon had a few things to say about my necklace layering and I had one glare to share in response. I think I was subconsciously making up for the fact that I don't have any bracelets or a notsmall purse that doesn't fit at least 4 diapers, two sippy cups, one pack of wipes, and a wide variety of stale fruit snacks.

Some down the street neighbors were out walking their dog and caught us taking photos and I was more than a little embarrassed which (as Simon pointed out the obvious) is ridiculous because the photos are going to be seen by a little sliver of internet and are our non-friends going to all of a sudden cut ties? No.

(Still embarrassed.)

blazer: Ann Klein (believe it)
jeans: Goodwill
shoes: c/o Blowfish Shoes
shades: c/o Sunglassesshop.com
shirt: Asos

Now go see how Kayla and Erica interpreted the look. They always make me rethink my approach.

  2. I love your interpretation. Regarding the necklaces: please tell Simon to stick with what he knows and let you continue to rock the accessories. (Tell him nicely of course, because I wouldn't want to offend him.)

  5. I've seen what Simon wears - those baggy, matching green or blue tops and bottoms. What's up with those? I wouldn't listen to fashion advice from someone who wears those to work, but keep rocking those necklaces AND velvet blazer.

    And yes, totally embarrassing for strangers on the street to see you take photos that you put up on the internet. I understand completely.

  6. I am actually obsessed with your necklace combo. But you know, I would be because I am a necklace hoarder.
    How about getting caught taking pictures in public by a friend who drove by and getting called out through a text? Worse than strangers to me...;)

  7. Ms. Grace, I honestly thought the first picture of you was another professional/model pic like the one above. How fun ;) Love the shirt, by the way.

    Hope you are well!

  14. I think the necklaces look great! And I hate it when my neighbors see my husband taking my picture outside, especially when I'm posing with my hand on my hip or something. Embarrassing.

  15. Super cute! The necklaces look good, I think. This sounds weird, I know, but I am jealous that your thighs don't touch when you stand normally...even after three kids...that's just wrong.
