Today's the Day......

8.22.2010

........of my daughter's first baby shower. I am so excited! I am sure she is, too. After all she gets to open all the gifts and then gets to bring them home and get everything ready for that new bundle of joy that will be arriving soon. I just thought I would share with you what I am wearing to the shower. No big deal, but it will look nice and be comfortable I hope plus I got some really good deals on two of the items.



 Wearing these dress khaki pants from Talbots that I have had for a while. They are a silky feeling material and very light and comfortable. The top is dark navy silk from Talbots. I just bought it on sale, now get this, for $14.99 regularly $79.50. Can I hear a woo hoo!!


Here is a better look at the blouse.


My daughter gave me the necklace for Mother's day and it will be perfect for today.


I lucked up on these shoes this week at Macy's. These are my hoochie mama or hoochie grandmama shoes I should say.Now don't these look like shoes every grandmother should wear? These are navy blue, too and they were originally $89 and I paid $31. Another woo hoo!!


Just look at the platform and heels on these things. I usually can't wear high heels without my achiles tendon killing me so since these are platform they are more level and they make me very tall. Kind of feels weird since I wear flats all the time. I need the heel for the length of the pants.Well, that's it. I would wear a nice sun dress if I was younger and had nice unblemished legs and toned arms, but I will let all the young ones dress like that. This shower is for her friends and next month will be the family one.


I hope everyone has a great day today. I will take lots of pictures and share them this week. 

I will have my regular Met Monday post tonight.


Y'all come back now,

KIM

  7. Dear Miss WooHooness!!! Great outfit. I was doing yoga on the deck the other day, checking my posture in the reflection of the storm door and realized as my arms were extended in warrior pose, I had my Granny's underarms! God love her, but where did those come from??? Oh well, there are worse things and I love your outfit!!! Have great fun today,

  9. Kim, your outfit is lovely. Love the tan and navy combination and the shoes are perfect. I don't think they look like a grandma. Your necklace is gorgeous, what a beautiful gift. I know you will have so much fun and I can't wait to see all the pics. Hugs, Marty

  10. Kim- You are going to look MAVAHLOUS, darling...simply MAVAHLOUS! Great looking outfit. Are you going to be painting in that BEFORE or AFTER the shower. I mean I can't imagine a day going by without you painting something (just to put some of us to shame);>)

    I can't wear those hoochy Mama shoes anymore either and I wore high heels every day of life for 35 years. Now, because of my work, etc...and having to move fast...I wear flat, usually rubber soled shoes. Now that I am out of heels they are very uncomfortable when I do put them on for an occassional event.

    I love the necklace and it's extra special because your daugher gave it to you-espeically for today's party. Make sure you take tons of pictures...well at least several..so we can enjoy the shower right along with you.

    Most of all-just enjoy yourself and your daughter! xxoo Diana

  27. Kim, I love your entire outfit! Talbot's is my favorite store, and their sales at the end of a season are wonderful. I wonder if they still have an outlet near Gwinnett Place Mall. That used to be my favorite place to shop when I lived in Liburn. You'll be the best looking "Gram". Enjoy your day! Looking forward to pictures.
