We’ll call this post “outfits in the wild” because while we left the house several times this weekend and did lots of picture taking, there wasn’t a lot of thought put into taking actual outfit pics. Regardless, I hope they help you get dressed and feel cute, or at the very least feel seen and validated since I basically wore bike shorts, tees, and cutoffs all weekend (but really all summer). Feeling like I should throw in a dress or two… unfortunately for me not sure a toga counts. Maybe this weekend????
Not much inspo here, but the sweatshirt I’m wearing is so cozy and bandanas make for easy accessories! The real OOTD happened later when we all dressed up for toga night with friends!
Poppy’s outing wish for her Birthday was to play at the park and playground with her fam, so we packed up and went to the best park we know – Wright Park in Tacoma.
My summer splurge! Haven’t taken them off my feet since they arrived. Worth it!
I highly recommend a toga party :)
TIPS FOR TOGA MAKING / The younger 3 kids and myself used huge (xl for Griff, 3x for Tilly and me) men’s tees (should’ve gotten a size bigger for poppy) and put one shoulder through the neck, tucked the unused sleeve in and bunched it towards the back, then gathered the other sleeve at the shoulder with cord/ribbon, and finished with a cord/ribbon belt, and some garland for a crown. For Yoder and Espen, I used costume fabric and while it worked ok, a sheet would’ve been better. There are lots of tutorials on YouTube for using sheets! Several of the other families found dresses that could be accessories to look toga-esque or bought a costume and they all actually looked really fun and cute but I kinda like seeing the DIY versions and honestly, the accessories (belts, crowns, jewelry) are what make the toga (or whatever you want to wear). You could technically wear a white tee, jeans, a crown, and some jewelry and look like a good sport.
Will share more of a recap from our busy weekend, later this week!
