Thanks for the ensemble this morning Angie!  I love the inspiration.

My version isn't as super duper as yours, but I'm happy in it anyway for a day of hanging out at home with my kids, prepping for a birthday party (my DD turns 10 tomorrow!)

I'm wearing black skinnies, a gray and white striped shirt, jean jacket and black/white all-stars on my feet. 

And very RATE hair (I'm waiting until the kids' naptime for a shower, since we'll be out in the woods this morning collecting mildweed pods for fairy beds)

What are your suggestions for improvement?

    Thanks JackieC!  It's a woodland fairy party, and each guest will be planting a fairy garden in a container to take home with them.  I think we'll have a blast.

    You nailed it - YOUR way - which is the point. Well done - and thanks for linking from the post. You rock. Have a fun b-day party tomorrow. I'll be cooking up a storm for a b-day bash we'll have with adults in our home tomorrow too. High five, Amy. xo

    YLF - I think you are the Sultana of Skinnies ( was going to say Queen but I like the alliteration).

  • amiable replied 6 years ago

    Thank you all!  I really didn't expect that this was a winner!  :)

    Angie - does my DD share a birthday with you or Greg?

  • Caro in Oz replied 6 years ago


  • Angie replied 6 years ago

    Ah, no Amy. Greg actually shares a birthday with Tanya (12th October), and I share a birthday with Goldenpig/Natalie (9th July). We have friends who we are celebrating with tomorrow. Happy birthday to your DD. xo

    You nailed it!  What a cute look for a casual day.

  • tricia w. replied 6 years ago

    Perfect, chic mom outfit. Looks great on you.

  • Joy replied 6 years ago

    Amy, I really like how the Cons and striped shirt seem to bookend each other. The party sounds like lots of girly fun.

  • Lantana replied 6 years ago

    Joy makes a good point about book ending. This is a terrific outfit Amy, you look great and I love your squirly whorly hair.

  • Deborah replied 6 years ago

    This looks really fab Amy. You have such lovely long legs:) Nice proportions. Effortless chic in my books.

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    This totally works!! 

    Happy birthday, to DD!!

  • krishnidoux replied 6 years ago

    This is such a winner's look on you! Absolutely fab! 

    Improvement? hmmm... a child holding your hand?

  • Aquamarine replied 6 years ago

    Fab fab fab! I loved to do stuff like that with my kids when they were younger...enjoy because it goes by all too quickly.

  • Jjsloane replied 6 years ago

    Super cute and perfect for your activities. Enjoy the party!

  • alice replied 6 years ago

    This looks super cute and a little tomboyish. My suggestion would be to add a long pendant to add a touch of femininity/decoration in the mix.

  • keruchina replied 6 years ago

    You look great! RATE in a very good way and super cool. 

  • Beth Ann replied 6 years ago

    Ah, 10 is such a great year, and you're kicking it off for DD in style!

    I think your version of Angie's outfit is perfect -- great modern fits and snappy cons!
