Fashion Show

Me and my sister (Aren't Jessica's pants incredible?  Express!)


My little man, Charlie and I were in desperate need of a mother/son date.  So naturally I took him to Peachy Keen's Fashion Show with me.  :-)  Charlie especially loved the music, (he was pretending to look through his telescope to see the models and was fist pumping the air the whole time), and LOVED the cupcakes (don't ask me how many he ate...ok, 4...but they were miniature).  

My sister and I have made it a tradition to go to these fashion shows together, which I love.  I also was able to meet up with some of my favorite Raleigh bloggers.  

I didn't have a ton of time to get ready for the show, so I went with my trusty skinny jeans, heels, and a button down white shirt.  (I also through in a little flare with the mini vest thing.)  How many times can I talk about the importance of having a classic white button down?  You need one if you don't already have one!  It can seriously save any outfit dilemma you might be having.

What is your go-to outfit when you don't have a lot of time to plan?

PS.  Have you entered to win a monogrammed pillowcase in the color of your choice?  Go here to do it!
Linking up with Shanna and the The Pleated Poppy.

Ok, I don't care that you didn't have time to get ready...that outfit is fabulous! Seriously!

My go-to outfit would probably be skinnies (colored or regular) and this flowy white blouse that I have. Similar to yours, but very functional and you can dress it up or down :)

You do the coolest things. I wish we had fashion shows in my area! I bet Charlie was the best looking one there :)

Sam M said...

I love how involved you are in your community. It seems like you're constatntly taking your boys to really cool places. The fashion show looks really cool!

I love your skinny jeans. I bought the best pair a few years back and my sister's dog ripped them to shreds, I seriously cried. Since then I have had a hard time finding just the right pair.
You and your sister are gorgeous!!
Charlie looked like he enjoyed his cupcakes. In my eyes, 4 mini ones equal 1 normal sized one!

Denim, button down and flats work for me. Both you and your sister look great. And Charlie looks so handsome with his bicycle tie and all.

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

You both looks so great, and Charlie is a little heart breaker!

Rachel said...

He is too adorable! I just want to pinch his cheeks! You and your sister look so much alike (although I'm sure everyone says that to you).

Becky Marie said...

My classic white button down just got a nasty stain on it! It was by far my favorite shirt. Time for a new one. Great tip.

You are beautiful and I love that you do mother and son dates.

I love those pants with the stripe down the side--and lately, I have no idea why, I've been craving a vest, too. I don't own one, but suddenly I can see so many outfits that could be improved by one.

How do you keep your the armpits of you white shirts white-- mine are for a while, but all eventually start to get discolored. I have tried different kinds of deodorant too.

Seriously any advice?
