outfit of the day(bird): too beautiful




shirt, jeans, shoes~ b. (a resale shop)
necklace~ Etsy, gift
belt~ thrifted

Last night, Mimi and I were in my bedroom as I was trying on possible outfits to wear to the Mother's Day event (happening tonight!) during which Megan and I will be giving makeovers to three lucky moms! I told Mimi that I wanted her honest opinion about each outfit, which she promised she would give. I put on the first look and stepped out of my closet. Mimi looked me up and down, narrowed her eyes, and vigorously shook her head. "Oh, no no no, Mama! Not that one! You cannot wear that," she exclaimed. "No? Okay, why don't you like it?" I asked. "Well, Mama," she explained, "It is just much too pretty." I smiled to myself, and then nodded that she was right and went back in the closet to change. This went on for the next few outfits. They were all "far too nice!" or "much too lovely!" or "way too beautiful!" It made my heart swell that she couldn't find a single bad thing to say about her mama (even though, trust me, some of those outfits were not so cute!) We never decided on an outfit and agreed that we would probably have to go shopping in the morning. Hopefully, we will find something just right!

  1. *rubbing eyes* I'm having a flashback to my youth here -- this outfit has such a distinct Sixties vibe to it. Very attractive in every way.

  8. hahahahaha, "much too pretty" - Yes, You are the prettiest part of your ensembles, not your clothes. I love it!!!! I love the shoe/wedges in this post. Crazy about them, in fact! Have an awesome time tonight! You two are so lucky to be involved in this event! Wow! Impressive. Thanks so much for your compliments!

  22. Ohh what a cutie. Your daughter sounds so sweet. How old is she? Loving that floral top and wedges and way to rock the wide boot-cut jeans. =)
