Bold & Blue, Baby

Monday, February 18, 2013

Merry Monday to all!
Did you guys have a good weekend?  My boyfriend & I were in Orlando with my sister, Shannon, and brother-in-law, Ross, for their BABY SHOWER!  I am so excited for my first ever baby niece to be born in April and celebrating her soon-to-be appearance in the world :D

The baby shower was thrown at Shannon & Ross' best friends' home on Sunday afternoon, and it was absolutely adorable!  Showers --whether they be of the baby or bridal assortment-- are some of the most fun events to be attend.  These celebrations do tend to bring up difficult questions about what is appropriate to wear though.  If the shower is being held during the day, as this one was, I personally tend to stick to something mostly casual but also a teensy bit dressed up.  Below is the type of outfit I would have worn to her shower if it had been the normal February weather we are used to in Florida.  However, it has been downright frigid [for Florida] the past few days so I switched up my outfit in the end.  I personally think this look would work for a shower though because it is equal parts fun, comfortable, and fashion forward-- yet practical for any games you play (unless there is running involved... then you may want to stick to flats...)!









Ecoté long black & white print tank top with stud details: Urban Outfitters, on clearance for $10 in 2011
These two are good options if you like the studded idea but don't want to go the print route: Forever 21 $14.80 or Forever 21 $22.80
Forever 21 dark wash skinny jeans (also seen here): $10.80
Fergalicious blue wedge espadrilles: DSW, on clearance for $10
-Similar styles: Amazon $15.24 (on sale from $39.95), Amazon $16.99Amazon $19.99 or DSW $49.95 (If you are willing to pay a bit more, this last pair is almost the exact same pair.)
American Eagle silver hoop earrings: Around $4 in 2011
-Similar style: Forever 21 $3.80





Would you wear an outfit similar to this for a daytime party?  Are you a fan of messy hair and/or cat eye makeup?  I [obviously] am a big fan of messy hair (if you couldn't already tell from past posts, haha).  I just feel the most "me" when my hair is free falling and my eyes are rimmed like Luna's... Is that weird?  ;P


And for your viewing pleasure, enjoy a few pics from the baby shower this weekend :)



I love my sister and her adorable baby belly!

For all the mama-to-be readers, Shannon got her beeeautiful black & white maternity top for $19.99 from Macy's!



Xoxo,
-Allie
