Very cute outfit, the skirt is great. My daughter and I had a similar talk the other day, whereas she thinks I need help dressing nice---I tell her, I went to college to study fashion merchandising, I know things--she said you have lost your touch. Gotta love 'em!



My daughter has always been such a fashion she got that...I have no idea...certainly not from me. I love the looks she puts together...I am trying to get her assistance in "defrumping" me!
Come visit sometime!


Love the black and white outfit! I've worn jeans and either tee shirts or sweaters for so long I wouldn't know how to dress anymore!


1. I love that black came back this year.
2. That's a great outfit and I esp love the floral motif!


Love that skirt!

Love the outfit, love hearing about your dear daughters, LOVE this post.


very hip! can't wait to hear a bit more about the gift show!


Oh my girls are sooooo picky about their outfits-they're destined to be like you're daughter, only I hope with as much style as yours.

Yesterday my five year old wore a frog costume with a ballet tutu and rain boots to the grocery store. And my eight year old insists on layering everything, tee shirts, sweaters, EVERYTHING!


You said it well, raising girls! Even now days when we're heading off to town one of my daughters will say, "Mom, are going in ... those jeans?" Or "...those shoes?". Thanks for sharing your story!
