Elementary School Meets Fountain of Youth

Took the day off on Friday so I could attend the Mother's Day Brunch at my daughter's school.  It was so nice to not go to work and to watch my little girl put on a show with her friends.  I was told the night before, in no uncertain terms, that I was to "dress up" for the event "in a dress".  Since the weather seemed to be cooperating, I chose the Fountain of Youth dress.  Can't tell you how much I love it!  There doesn't seem to be much you can do to dress is up or down so basically my outfit consisted of dress + shoes.  Easy!
I did put on a cardigan for the walk to school.  The show and all the little notes and gifts the kids gave to their moms were so cute.  They sang us some songs, we enjoyed some bagels and juice, and took pictures with the teacher.  It was very well put together and extremely adorable.  Here's me and my little princess in her classroom.
On me: dress - Anthropologie Fountain of Youth; cardigan - Merona for Target; shoes - Seychelles "Joan"; toes - China Glaze Purple Panic (neon)
On Lil Miss (she asked me to include her OOTD deets): dress - Target (was a mere $17 and we get so many compliments on it); cardigan - ? from Neiman Marcus a few years ago; glasses - Sears

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!

  9. A Katrina Dress no less. And the shoes "China Glaze Purple Panic Neon." So perfect to color up that gorgeous Green Dress. I have looked longingly many times at the Fountain of Youth. What are you wearing underneath as support?

    I was wondering about your daughter's dress the minute I saw it. So cute she asked her outfit be included in the caption. Uh Oh! Someone is growing up Anthro. Look out Mom!

  12. Hi ladies. Thank you for all the wonderful comments - you are all so sweet!

    Sorry I'm late responding, life's been crazy.

    Laura - I wore a regular racer back bra with this dress and much to my surprise, it did not how in the back at all. Phew! :)

    Oh, and if anyone is into the shoes, I will tell you they are super comfortable. I could've walked in them all day. Finally!
