Josie Kay Photography bio picture
  • Hey there! I’m Josie Kay

    American Poet, and one of my favorites, Mary Oliver asked; “So tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one WILD + PRECIOUS life?” Her question resonated with me personally and professionally and those two words became a mantra to drive my life and work.
    Personally, I am in love with the idea of life being WILD + PRECIOUS. Because it is. It’s fast + slow, big + small, crazy + simple…wild + precious. Life is full of these moments. Everyone has a story and I’m here to tell it.

Shirt Dresses

Current clothing obsession: Shirt dresses

I love them! They are seriously SO COMFORTABLE and you can wear them in a variety of different ways; with belts, jackets, boots, sandals etc. And  in most weather conditions from spring to fall!

Whenever I can’t find exactly what I’m looking for in a retail store, I go thrifting. I love finding something one of a kind and reworking it to create exactly what I want…

I found this baby at Goodwill for $5, at first glance I think it screams HOMESCHOOL MOM FROM THE 90′S!!!  Relax, I was a homeschool kid, with a homeschool Mom from the 90′s whom I love very, very much….so I’m allowed to joke about it.

I basically just cut it off and hemmed it (and when I say “I” , I mean my Mom, she is much better at hemming than I am), switched out the original belt for this brown one, and rolled up the sleeves. BOOM. DONE. Brand new shirt dress, that I’ve worn once so far, but has gotten me several compliments and two honks (:

Okay, I have to know. How do you sit in a dress that length! I have not figured it out!!! I have one a bit longer that I have not worn out so far. I am pretty sure I would flash everyone.

hahah very ladylike, either cross your legs or your ankles…or sometimes I do wear bicycle shorts underneath a dress I’m not sure about! Or you could always do leggings! They’d be super cute with this… Post pics of your dress Danielle, I wanna see!!

We will see. I already had one of the boys lift up my dress to my underwear while at a church garage sale. It scared me…
