Fashion prodigy: the bandeau top

We are riding out the last days of summer here in Cleveland. It's been warm and humid but the kids are loving the long summer days and looking out for lightning bugs at night. 

Izzy hasn't worn this Burberry-inspired skirt in a while. She was surprised when she found it hiding between all the dresses in her closet. At first she wasn't sure what to do with it. But in true fashion rebel form, Izzy transformed the skirt into a top.

The look is kind of like a bandeau with a generous peplum overskirt. At first she wanted to wear the top as a mini-dress but I said, "No way -- too short." So she paired it with orange loose-fitting leggings.

Not many girls can pull this off. But I think she can.

When feeling like a red head, just add a wig.
