what to wear to a teddy bear picnic

maxi dress look boots with dress giraffe bracelet boots with dress what to wear to a teddy bear picnic

Rainer's Kindergarten class had its "Teddy Bear Picnic" today. It's a little performance (3 songs) and then the kids eat a picnic with their families. It's amazing that it coincided with having the day off for me (since it's difficult for me to take a day off in my work). I was SO happy to get to be there.   Rainer was adorable.

I paired this maxi dress with low boots to make it more casual.  The belt is a thrift store belt that is way too tiny to wear with jeans but fits perfectly with the dress.  I have big plans for paring this dress with different belts, different shoes, sandals, or moccasins, and with a jean jacket or denim vest over the summer and into the fall.  I'm crazy in love with the print.

I'm linking up with Passion for Fashion today.  Click through for more style inspiration!

    1. Yes--I was so happy to find the bracelet at Target--was so tempted to get other animals (they had zebras!) but limited myself to just this one. Thanks for stopping by, Rachel!
