Royal Blue.

I'm linking up with Anna of In Honor of Design for this fun little outfit post. I love that Anna quoted Audrey Hepburn who said, ""The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her hear, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years." This is part of her True Beauty Files

The other night I met up with my girlfriends of KRAP (explanation here) and wanted to wear something fun, but not really fancy. I call it: "Leggings Plus Other Things That Make You Look Like You Put Effort Into It." Or (LOTTMYLLYPE) since we're talking acronyms.  Lott My Llype is great when you're a mom because it involves leggings, which are super easy and since you wore them all during your pregnancy you will not want to give them up. Then you pull out the fanciest looking long blouse from your closet (not the pea-stained Target-t-shirts mind you) plus a fun little necklace and some no-fuss shoes. Heels? No thanks. I opted for boots since it was chilly out on this particular night, but this outfit would also be cute with ballet flats.

What do you wear out to dinner with friends?

Cute! Right now I'm in the midst of upgrading my wardrobe and seem to only wear the same things all the time even though I have plenty of other options--I'm in a rut and want to hop out of it! Maybe I should ban jeans for awhile? Or try the new leggings that are sitting on my shelf gathering dust--you are inspiring me!

Oh, "Lott My Llype" made me laaaaaaugh! Mom or not, leggings or tights, boots, and necklaces make all the difference!

Love the high socks with the boots! I always wear dark denim and a white tee. It's totally my go to outfit. But I'm loving the blue here.

Alexa said...

Thanks you all! Love that color blue! :)

tinajo said...

Oh it depends on how much energy I have - sometimes just jeans and a top and sometimes dress and up-do. :-)

You look lovely, that shade of blue is great. :-)

Casey said...

Okay that shirt is truly business in the front, party in the back, but WAY. way. WAY better than a mullet!!

Kat said...

all about the leggings- actually just got myself a super duper nice pair from lulu that i'm hoping i can rock for the next 9 months... :)

Anna of IHOD said...

Oh my word. This shirt is fantastic! What a stunning color on you. Now in the fashion world that shirt would have been worn with no tank underneath..or bra for that matter. LOL! And you are proof that the way you styled it is completely stunning. :D
Thank you so much for linking up! Can't wait to see more!
