ukulele chic

hello everyone! while i'm running errands in san francisco, i thought i would leave you with a little outfit post.  i'm not sure if you are aware of this, but ukulele's are much more fun to play when you get all dressed up.  i may or may not still play in my front yard, pretending i'm performing in front of a cafe full of people, just like i did when i was a little girl.


my current favorite thing to do is play covers of non-ukulele style songs on the ukulele.  anything goes really, so long as  it catches my fancy and uses the chords i know.  but i still go back to the first song i learned on the uke, she & him's "gonna get along without you now."  it's so much fun to play!


dress: forever 21, circa 2005
undershirt & leggings: thermal underwear from REI
shoes: chelsea crew
earrings: forever 21
belt: my best friend's costume closet, circa high school 1998
bow: san franciscan artisan fair  


i hope everyone is having a fabulous week.  happy thursday!

  4. First off, that's a super cute outfit. I love the bow! Second, I just told Noah I was thinking about learning ukulele. One of my 101 is to learn a new instrument and I thought it'd be a fun one to learn (as a music major he already knows how to play everything else so maybe I'll actually learn something and can show him!). Cute post.

  6. Oh, I love bow. I am tempted to rock one soon. Those shoes are darling, too. I agree every instrument has it own outfit. I wonder what I should wear when I pretend to play my guitar.
    Hope you are having a blissful time in San Fransisco.
