Pigtails loves jewelry.  Not sure where she gets that :)  Just the other day we were in her "Mommy and Me" class when she took a slinky we were supposed to play with while singing, and turned it into a lovely bracelet.  It was actually a good idea and I appreciated her accessorizing.

After checking out a few posts from participants of "Bloggers Do It Better" hosted by Pretty Shiny Sparkly, I felt inspired to try out the "White Out" trend myself.  Okay, it's not exactly white out, but I did do all neutrals and tried to keep within the same vein.  I decided to go with a white eyelet skirt and a neutral button up shirt.  I also got to wear my amazing blush colored stilletos (thanks to FancyFierce and Fedora for the lovely birthday gift!).  They kinda remind me of a ballerina.  Now all I need is the tutu!

I also linked up with "What I Wore Wednesday" on the Pleated Poppy

Anyway, I had a lot of fun playing with this outfit.  I did consider doing all white, but it's a little dangerous with my two girls.  I decided to keep the jewelry simple.  It's something I learned from Pigtails, "When accessorizing, less is more."  Unless, of course, it's a diamond, then more is more.

AH! By far my favorite of all the White Out outfits I have seen. I love every single aspect of this. I hate beige up near my face so I am envious of anyone who can pull it off. Which, so far, would be... uh, you. And those shoes are to die for, seriously.

I love that you went white all the way down to the nails - and the touch was beige ties it all together so perfectly. You did an awesome job with this one!

Oh girl, I love this look! Love the mix of different neutrals here even more than the whole white-out probably. I WANT those shoes badly...I hope you just bought them not too long ago. I'm going to look for them now!
Also how ADORABLE is your precious Pigtails?!! I'm so excited about these stages with my little girl:-)

I love the shoes!! I could NEVER wear white because I sit everywhere and I'm too clumsy. I'd get my clothes dirty immediately after I leave home! -_- But you look great! :>

Xx, Khla

This is actually my favorite white-out look that I have seen. I love that you paired the white skirt (which is gorgeous) with a neutral top. The white jewelry and nails were nice touches.

I wish I had your mad fashion skills.
I feel like we should meet up and go shopping sometime.

This looks great. Would have been perfect for that 'white out' challange too!
I absolutely love the shoes...

Regarding the nap comment...My son rarely naps but I have conditioned him to do quiet time in his room while my daughter naps. He is pretty good staying in there and playing/reading for couple hours. The room is a mess when it is over but oh well...

I LOVE the white and khaki combo--one of my favorite looks for summer! And I love those blush shoes with the outfit. I envy that you can wear tall shoes--it's one of the curses of being tall that I am stuck for the most part with flats... :(

Happy Cinco de Mayo Claire!

Rebecca said...

Those shoes are fantastic!

Shea said...

This is such a pretty look! I love the mix of whites, khakis, and blush tones.

Mrs. J said...

You look GREAT and I actually think mixing neutrals is better then wearing all white. Give your friends a hi-five because those shoes are FABULOUS!

ps. My little 2 year cousin always takes my bangles whenever I visit. Lol She has the accessory obsession too. :)

Dawn said...

Beautiful outfit on you...so glad you are following...looking forward to more fab fashion inspiration from you..Dawn Suitcase Vignettes.xo

Tara said...

Gorgeous! I absolutely adore this outfit! (Do I say that to you all of the time? I feel like that's generally my first thought when I see one of your outfits...) I'm impressed with your bravery in wearing just the white skirt around the girls...B would have used that as target practice for juice or something :)

Also, those shoes are amazing!!
