The Next First Lady

That's who I felt like yesterday.

My friend, Natalie, gave me a Gap pale blue sweater, which I paired with a pearl necklace and pearl stud earrings.

Not usually my style. You all know I'm a little more daring.

However, I did feel like quite a proper first lady ... 
combined with the perfect '50s housewife ...
with a dash of sassy Harvard preppie.
What a perfect woman ... Barbara Bush, Donna Reed, and Selma Blair's character from "Legally Blonde." Or not.

You look so.....sweet!!! You do look great in blue.

The great thing about that sweater of your is that you can change up the look so easily. You can go from Barbara Bush to a young Gap add chick in the matter of moments.
That's a good gift!

I did your little meme from yesterday and linked back. Thanks for a good idea.

I'd vote for you as First Lady (or, wait...I guess I'd vote for your hubby as prez?? Yeah, that'll work!) ;)

You made me giggle!
I think you'd be a very GOOD first Lady, and I'd love to hear Beau's policies!

I like the outfit. Cute.

Rachel said...

I'd rather you that Michelle O. Just sayin'. Not that I have anything against Michelle, I just didn't want her hubby as president. I think I could handle Beau.

RR Mama said...

You've got my vote, hands down!

You look great! My son is sitting here and said "She looks hot!".

How do you like your new fridge?

Look at you, you can do sweet and sassy just as well as fun and funky. :) And Beau for president? Sounds good to me!

Good grief - my daughter's school is having a sock hop and I'm going as June Cleaver (chaperone). I have been looking for short pearls everywhere! They're a little hard to find these days. Can I borrow yours?

p.s. Your hair looks great!

Girl, you rock. You're like a little fashion chameleon.

You are like an edgy First Lady, which is cool.

Jeanette said...

Love the blue on you! Great hair too :}

You are so witty! I love the sweater and pearls, and though its not the norm, you look stunning! even better than the "perfect" moms, but I have to say, Barbara Bush now thats class!

Tammy said...

Looking good, lady!

And Barbara is definitely my favorite!

I would vote for you, just because you finally figured out how to flop your photos.

Now, THAT's the Mama Belle I recognize, and love so much. I have no idea who that other girl is, the one with the printer and corkboard on the other side.

That's funny. You look great! Definitely first lady quality.
Not to nit pic, but that's June Cleaver not Donna Reed.
I love those old shows. I wish Nick at Night would go back to showin' those old series.
