Tee: LOFT
Shoes: Jessica Simpson (similar)

My hair has jet lag.  A week in South Carolina, a week home, a long weekend in Kentucky and back to the DC are and it doesn't know whether to be curly or straight, frizzy or flat.  If you can believe it, today is better than the past two days where it looked as though I had limp flat hair and stuck in frizzy extensions in a haphazard manner.  Also desperately due for a cut and color but that will have to wait until after next weekend.  Yep, heading out of town again, this time for the annual Girls' Rehoboth Trip!

And thank you to Lisette L for these adorable pants! These pants (Style #801 ankle pant) aren't just cute, but they also flatter the figure by slimming the lower abdomen, contouring the hips and shaping the behind without the feeling of being bound in tight. These pants suck your tummy in a bit but let you breathe, in fact I think they're just as comfortable as my yoga pants! The fabric is a nice dense weave that is work-appropriate and they have a pull-on style that keeps the midsection smooth. I only wish they came in petite and tall sizes (maybe soon!).  Visit their site for more info or follow them on Twitter!

Any exciting weekend plans?  Considering how exciting our last weekend was, we plan to lay low.  Emerson has ballet class and we have our friends' daughter's second birthday but otherwise I plan on catching up on laundry and other utterly thrilling things!

    Love, love, love those pants! Super flattering and fun at the same time. I already have a pair of Lisette L pants, but might have to pick up a pair in the polka dot. (Mine are plain black and I’ve almost worn them out bc I wear them all the time) You look A-mazing!

    Nope, no accessories for once! They all seemed to be too much & competing with the outfit 🙂

    Super sleek and polished silhouette. Love the perfect pop of the teal heels and the minimal, dare I see no?, accessories 🙂

    We went through that with A too, she was used to “dancing” on her own. I can’t wait to see pictures and video of her!

    I recommend contacting the company, they are based out of Canada so they may be able to assist or possibly set you up with a shop that will mail order to you. Good luck!

    I’m not at all a fan of printed pants, in fact I usually hate them.  But those pants are amazing. I’m in love with this whole outfit so much so that I searched to see if I could buy those pants via internet.  Unfortunetely, they don’t seem to be available for Quebec customers.  Je suis vraiment déçue 🙁 .  Does anyone knows where i could buy (online) an alternative for those pants.  So far, this is my very favorite outfit.

    So far she likes it, though she’s having to get used to doing the same thing as everyone else at the same time. But that’s a big reason why we wanted to get her into a class, get her used to school and such 🙂

    Allie,

    I have some teal shoes with not as high a heel as yours, but the identical color. I have been kicking myself for buying them. “What am I supposed to do with these?” Thanks for the idea. I have a black and white knee length sundress that I think will be good with the shoes. I have also been wondering what shoes to wear with the dress. I didn’t think I had anything suitable in my very limited stock of shoes.

    So actually you solved 2 problems for me. Thank you!

    Chirs

    Hooray, an Allie outfit! I’ve missed them.

    Let me count the ways I love those pants: 1) a black-and-white pattern; 2) polka dots; and 3), I have such a hard time finding interesting, work-appropriate pants. Those are fab!

    Cute outfit!  I love the pop of color.  I’ve been looking for blue color shoes but can’t commit to the right shade of blue.  I love the poke dot pants.  I just bought a pair of polka dot skinnies at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and can’t wait to wear them.
