LIKE MAMA...LIKE DAUGHTER!

I had a very casual day today...running around this small town where I live. Fabric store, drugstore, grocery store, lunch at Panera Bread, et cetera. My outfit was also casual...a very preppy uniform I might say!

"HERE'S WHAT I WORE." I paired the pink 'Resort' polo by Lilly with my khaki skirt from Tar-jay.

The pink & green ribbon belt is from CK Bradley...years ago. Love my preppy grass green 'Roped-In' ballet flats by Lilly. I carried my bermuda bag in the 'Shrimp Cocktail' pattern by Lilly--it is truly one of my fav pocketbooks. (The cashier at Panera Bread asked me "Is that a Lilly Pulitzer purse?" "Yes ma'am, I said...it's the Shrimp Cocktail pattern." She gave me that TMI look)! I wore a pair of gold monogrammed disk-style earrings and the matching monogrammed ring, all of which I've had forever! I also wore my 'Chameleon' watch by Rolex with a green band. My ponytail was adorned with a pink grosgrain ribbon. Of course, I wore my rollring wedding band by Cartier and my lipstick was 'Parfait' by Chanel. My fragrance of choice for the day...'Wink' by Lilly and my nail polish 'Pink Mink' by Chanel.
This is a stock image of the Rolex 'Chameleon' watch, with interchangeable bands. I bought mine back in the 80's and bought extra bands to coordinate with my outfits...Obsessed, even waaaaay back then!

iPhone cover of the day...white, with pink monogrammed decals, from 2PreppyGirls. Totally obsessed y'all!
Mlle. Coco Chanel had an appointment today at the beauty shop and of course, she had to dress up...like mama! Don't judge.

"HERE'S WHAT MISS COCO WORE." The bandanna is precious isn't it??? It's the Lilly 'Shrimp Cocktail' pattern (available on ebay at lillypadsstore)--Coco insisted on getting one to match ma mere's pocketbook!!! Her top knot is adorned with a darlin' pink & green ribbon and her leash and collar...pink, of course!

Thank you so much for visiting with me today. I'm trying so hard to keep up with my blog reading and it seems I'm just getting further behind! Please be patient with me. If you have a specific question for me, you may send an e-mail to: Miss Janice {at} Miss Janice {dot} com.

I'm planning a cute giveaway for next week...it's a Southern thing y'all!

Love the outfit(s) today! It's refreshing seeing folks look put together when running errands, it's unfortunate that what you and I would call "casual" is actually dressed up to most people! I especially love the purse, and Coco is adorable!

I love my Lilly Bermuda bag so much I have never used it because I am still mourning over the loss of my bag from the 80' and I don't ever want to be without one again! You have inspired me today to get that bag out of it's box and take it out on the town. You look so darn cute I want to too! :) xoxo

I bet y'all were the cutest pair in town!

How cute you and Ms. Coco look today. I read a few years ago, unless you are 16, casual is not blue jeans. I always try to look nice when I run errands. Even when I was on crutches, I at least tried to dress up my sweat pants as much as possible when I left the house.

James said...

Just wanted to tell you I enjoy your lifestyle, it's a marvelous to behold.

Oh Miss Janice, I would love for you to come have tea on my porch. And, I'd be doubly honored if you brought Miss Coco along as well. I would love showing both of you off to my friends and neighbors as they walk by. I know they would be very impressed with your (and Miss Coco's) impeccable style.

Best,
Bonnie
