Grandma & Me: Purple And Grey

For this months "Grandma and Me" post,  Alethea and I are sharing what we wore to Chicago's Field Museum when I was visiting the kids last February.  Sorry the pictures aren't the best; museum lighting is not the best for personal photos. 

Because it was a long day that involved a lot of walking we dressed very casually and comfortably.  I wore high waist light denim skinny jeans from Charlotte Russe along with a pearl embellished sweatshirt previously shown HERE from JCPenney.  Alethea wore grey sweat pants with a purple and grey mushroom onesie. I brought out the purple in Alethea's outfit by wearing a purple neck tie and Alethea wore a purple headband.



Alethea was so intrigued by the pearls in my sweatshirt...she kept trying to pick them off.  haha!  She also thought my neck tie was pretty tasty too!


For jewelry,  I wore one of my daughter's vintage bracelets.  Isn't it pretty?



And here she is, sucking on my neck tie.  haha!  Everything goes in the mouth at this age!


Whenever I am with her,  I can't stop kissing her!  Those chubby cheeks are just so kissable!  I leave lipstick kisses all over her face!


I really love all the jeans I purchased from Charlotte Russe.  I wear them all the time.   They have held up very well.  The fit is perfect for me.  For $25.00 a pair (on sale) I couldn't be more pleased.  Unfortunately these are sold out already, but if you need jeans next fall, check this store out!


My black lace up combat boots I also got at Charlotte Russe (sold out).  They were so comfortable for walking all day!


This week my posting schedule will be a bit different.  I normally don't do another fashion post until Friday but I was asked to co-host with the Ageless Style ladies for their monthly challenge, so I will have another fashion post tomorrow.   Our theme is "yellow",  so I hope you come back tomorrow to see how I styled this color.  I will not be doing a fashion post on Friday because of the special Tuesday fashion post.

Have A Great Day!  Amy

    1. Thanks Cheryl! I bought this sweater this season and it's one of my favs. It is so comfy, yet dressy because of the pearls. I love it.

  4. You both look gorgeous, the purple looks so pretty with the blue jeans and gray. Just my type of an outfit and I might have to purchase some of these boots next fall (I decided that heeled booties aren't for me.)
    Aletha's outfit is so cute too with the mushroom print! What a fun age she's at right now, why do they have to grow up so fast!!

    1. Thanks Elli! I'm with you on the heels. I've purchased so many shoes with heels that just aren't wearable for my climate or lifestyle. I love them, but I can't walk long in them, which makes them impractical. Now, I try to buy shoes with chunky heels, wedges, or no heels at all. I actually get a lot of compliments on these boots whenever I wear them, proving that you really don't need to wear heels to look fashionable. I so agree with you on how fast babies grow up. Wait till you see next month's Grandma & Me post. She's gone from looking like a baby to looking like a little girl.

    1. Thanks Ruth. I requested lavender pieces in my last Stitch Fix, which is why I've been wearing them in my fashion posts. I really do love this color and I think it is very flattering for my skin tones.

  7. I love matching outfits and your granddaughter is such a cutie! Love her head wrap and I believe you when she tried picking your embellishments of your sweater. My son is 4 and thinks it's still fun! Lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ Thankfully your sweater remained unharmed because it's such a beauty! Happy belated Easter and happy Monday! See you back here tomorrow for your special post.

  10. You both look gorgeous and I think those jeans are the perfect fit. I'm tall so I always struggle to find jeans that are long enough - wearing them with combat boots solves that problem :)

    1. Thanks Leanne. I'm 5'7 and what usually happens to me is the jeans fit great until I wash them; then they're too short. These are the best jeans I ever purchased, and so inexpensive too!

    1. Yes, I get in trouble too cause parents these days worry so much about toxins and chemicals and they worry about my lip stick getting into the baby's system. Parents are so much more protective then my generation or the generation before me.
