Teach me how to Duggar

It will probably take me a few days to catch up on my sleep enough to blog about what I actually wore to the festival.  So, in the meantime, here are a few things I wore recently, not to a festival.

I liked this outfit, but I also really felt like a cool homeschooler.  You know – the kind that’s aware of current fashions, but still has to wear long skirts. They look pretty, but you can still always tell them apart from the public and private school kids.  Like the Duggars, for example.

To top it off, I’m even wearing fair trade paper beads that help support orphans, which seems like a very cool homeschooler thing to do. (You can buy your own here.)  The earrings, btw, are from Francesca’s – my commitment to the cause only goes so far.

Unrelated to the whole homeschool look are my shoes, which are on their very last leg (no pun intended), but I refuse to get rid of them because love them.  Honestly, they’re probably my favorite pair, so in my closet and on my feet they stay.

1 - turquoise maxi, floral blouseWhat do you think?  Would you pair the long blouse with the long skirt, or am I not passing the cool homeschooler test as well as I think I am?  Regardless, don’t you love all these colors together?  Yay, spring!!!


  1. I think it works mostly because of the proportions of the top since it is narrow and fitted the look doesn’t get too slouchy… I have a blue midi skirt I wear with a fitted peplum top which is my favorite outfit. Looks pulled together but feels like pajamas 🙂 Keep rocking it friend.

      I love peplem tops, Jenner, and I’ve yet to buy one. I think I was scared for a long time, and now I just haven’t found a good one. But, I can only imagine that looks awesome on you!

    This is one of my all-time favorites of yours! This is completely fabulous – and I am stealing the look for work. Just letting you know so that if you see a photo of me and I am looking radiantly similar to this – you know why. I’ve been looking for a way to incorporate a skirt into teaching without looking and feeling super dressy – and failing. I love it with the long blouse. It looks comfortable yet professional. Thank you!

      Aww, yay! I’m so glad it was helpful, Caitlin! And please do tag me in a picture or send me one when you wear the outfit; I’d love to see it! 🙂

  3. I like to call my long layers on long layers on long layers my “older Jewish lady look”… But my layers are usually black, which is not very homeschooler of me.
    The title of this is hilarious, also I love the tied beads.

      Ooh, that is also an accurate analogy, Beth – I like it! (btw, did you ever see my post about the closet minimalism? I should have tagged you in it, since you were the inspiration in the first place!)
