Pretty in Pink for a Relaxed Day!!!

Pretty in Pink for a Relaxed Day!
Pretty in Pink for a Relaxed Day! - by dinagideon on Polyvore.com
So here is the outfit that I decided to wear for three reasons: 1) It is gorgeous outside and I was feeling decidedly "Springy!" 2) I am walking from the school to Starbucks (about 1.25 miles) after I am done for the day (don't worry, I brought walking shoes and will store the flats in the backpack--I made room); and 3) It is CW's six-month birthday (big deal when you are this small) and I wanted to wear very "girly" colors.

The polyvore shows the outfit in its entirety. Some changes--the shirt is not the Parisian polo (although I do own that one), instead it is the polo from J. Crew, Summer 2006 that had the critters on the chest. The polo I have has the whale critter. The fossil watch is similar to the one in the set, as are the pearls.


Here is the outfit, full length. I do LOVE these pants. They are so pretty and comfortable. And again, the material is ridiculously soft. If you didn't visit the Polyvore site, the pants are the colored cotton chambray cropped chinos (still for sale at jcrew.com). The shoes are the fresco-print (on silk) ballet flats (last I checked they were still for sale at jcrew.com). These shoes are from my collection of Fresco printed items. I love the fresco print. It must be the colors, green, olive, and pink that drew me in...


Since it is CW's 1/2 year birthday, I had to put a pic of her and me together. You can also see the whale critter closer-up and you can see the watch and necklace, too. I think I got the necklace from Macy's on "super-sale."

I hope to comment back to all of you who commented on the two outfits yesterday (THANK YOU) but I have a meeting in a few minutes and then we are off to shop at Costco, Macy's, and possibly even IKEA, so I may not be able to comment back until tomorrow!!! Please forgive me...I love commenting and commenting back!!!

That color is so great with your complexion! Love all the pink with the Fresco shoes... we are both on a Springy wavelength today! Have fun shopping :)

oh, and Happy Half Birthday to Miss CW! We like to do half birthdays around here even though my kids are older. We don't do gifts, but we can get half cakes (the round ones) at our local grocery and any excuse for birthday cake is fine by me! Plus, the kids really like it when they can say they are "3 and a HALF", "5 and a HALF" etc! :)

Awwwww, what an adorable pic of you and CW. Happy 1/2 bday to her. You look beautiful as always. I love your necklace and the flats. I too am a fan of that pattern.

Joyce: Did you find that when your kids were young that you would want to pose with them and just ham it up? I love this!!!

FFM: Thank you...I will let CW know!!! ;)

Sparrowsandsparkles: I am so grateful that J. Crew carries these saturated colors...my complexion desperately needs them...

Isn't spring the best? I love that heady smell of early blossoming flowers!

I am totally going to steal that idea of the round cake for the half-bday (hope that's okay)...I love that your family celebrates half-birthdays!

Shopaholicdiva1027: Thank you! Do you have anything in the fresco pattern? I bet you would look beautiful in the shell (and you wouldn't have to have a cardigan as a contrast color the way I have to)!!!

HeidiG: I enjoyed that starbucks like a mad woman. Nothing is better than having a long day at work and getting to celebrate with a delicious cup of starbucks decaf latte. MMMM!

Jordan: Thank you. Seeing my baby on my blog at work makes me miss her desperately...she is a cutie, huh?

Beth: Thank you!!! I definitely agree with you about the baby... ;)

Lissa: I had the same thought about it being preppy...I felt like I belonged in some sort of movie about Boston in the '80s. :)

Gwen: Thank you for noticing. I really am trying hard, but it is difficult to see the progress yourself. Words like yours remind me that the hard work is well, working!!!

3PP: Thank you. All you DC ladies need to meet my lil CW...when she is old enough, we will have to style her in some crewcuts. Too darling!

Ashley: Thank you. The distance seemed okay at first, but once I got started (did not wear the flats--that would be a crime)...my other walking shoes started chafing my foot. Yep, you know it, I got a blister. (This always happens when I transition from my winter walking shoes to my summer walking shoes!)
