Steppin' Out Saturday -- 2-26-11

Steppin' out

And an extra sneezy outtake
Achoo!

Me:
Dress & boots, Old Navy

Em:
Sweater & leggings, Pumpkin Patch
Shirt, Baby Gap
Boots, Payless

This is the cream version of the grey dress I wore not long ago. I tried to wear a belt over the dress, but I couldn't get it to look right. It looked too much like a corseted pirate wench costume, but I bet with the right belt/placement/looseness, it'd work. And in this color, the dress doesn't seem as maternity-ish as the grey did.

As you can see, if I like an article of clothing, I like picking up other colors when I can. The boots I'm wearing above are the brown versions of the black ones I had last week. They're really baggy around the calves, but I don't mind it. That makes it easy to wear them over jeans, and I think they still work nicely with dresses & skirts.

Saturday we were delighted to celebrate the 1st birthday for our pal, Elsie.

There were party hats.

  2. Em looks TOO cute in that first picture - so much personality! And I agree with you, I think that this color of the dress looks more flattering than the grey. I really like it with the boots.

  4. Did you get the boots recently? Old Navy right? I need a pair of "baggy around the calves" boots because normal boots don't fit my calves.

  5. I, too, like this cream color than the grey color on the dress! I also really like Em's pink sweater. It's a really pretty color.
