OOTD: Bubblegum Checks & Dynasty

This is me today. At home in Seattle with my boys. Working, cooking, cleaning, catching up with friends everywhere from my phone, watching tele, and glued to the news.

I'm casual, comfy, energetic and smiling with Sam. And smiling because I'm wearing my "Dynasty Crystal Carrington" bubblegum sweatshirt that screams the '80s. I LOVE THE '80s :)

These are my second pair of AT HOME ONLY SNEAKERS that I had new and boxed ready in the wings (duplicated last year). A trendy chunky Seinfeld look that makes me once again think back to my fab Varsity days in the '80s. And my word - I have seen the supportive sneaker light. Much better than wearing my slippers all day......day after day......

My sheltering and isolating drill:

Styled hair, make-up, wearing my pretty clothes, specs, glam pearls, Apple watch - and nowhere to go but take Sam on his walks. I am leaving off my wedding rings because of excessive hand washing, sanitizing and moisturizing. 

  • New checked pants. Best Theory pants I've ever owned, and I've owned many pairs. SUBLIME quality and fit. 
  • I love bubblegum pink puffy sleeves! 
  • Light blue Furla is a few years old
  • Denim jacket is five years old

I'm all over these shorter fluid tops with welts. Very versatile for my assortment of bottoms. 

I like to mix pastels with brights and white. And that's why white shoes work well for my outfits. Working my way back to a perfect Dancer's pose too.

    Darn - I thought you wouldn't be able to top "Mega Milkshake" outfit but you have done it again - adorable!
    Fav pic 11 - like from some fashion magazine personally delivered to everyone. Sam is pro in posing :) .

    Angie you look great! Tell me again what 0OTD means? I couldn’t find the list of YLF abbreviations.
    Yes to supportive sneakers in the house!

  • kellygirl replied 4 years ago

    Your Outfit Of The Day is beyond fab! You glow in brights. Love the puff sleeve sweatshirt--it does scream 80s in a playful modern way. Love your style and energy!

  • Angie replied 4 years ago

    Slim Cat and Kelly, you make me laugh, and thank you :)

    Madeline, a supportive sneaker high five, and #OOTD means: Outfit Of The Day.

  • MsMaven replied 4 years ago

    I love the way your hair looks right now. Fun outfit and poses. Thanks for some cheering up!

  • Suz replied 4 years ago

    Gorgeous, Angie!! You look amazing in that bubblegum pink and I love how it works with the red specs. It would look equally fun with the green frames or the white sunnies. SO fab. Love the pants, too. What a breath of spring air you are.

    Geez- has another day passed already ! I think I must still be up from yesterday . This sweatshirt is fantastic-and just looking at you gives me a boost of much - needed energy . I can see how in-house shoes work in a home like yours with the vast spaces and wood floors . I’d be doing it too ! And again , your hair has never looked better .

  • rachylou replied 4 years ago

    Wow that top is good! :)

  • jasmine replied 4 years ago

    You look wonderful as always, Angie, and good grief, your dog is just freaking adorable!

  • Jaime replied 4 years ago

    Whaaat! That gorgeous sweater is Banana Republic? Those pants are gorgeous! Your poses are delightful - balance is my weakest point and I am suitably impressed.
    And you look beautiful, did I mention that?

  • Mirjana replied 4 years ago

    Wow, another gorgeous outfit Angie. You look terrific in pink sweatshirt, lovely sleeves. Those pants are beautiful. This is a feast for the eyes .

  • Mainelady replied 4 years ago

    Angie Crystal Carrington Cox, you do rock the 80s Fabulously! Head to toe happy fun. You are a true day brightener!

  • UmmLila (Lisa) replied 4 years ago

    Thanks for keeping us all cheerful ... love the pants .... what a great color combo. I bought a puffy sleeve hot pink top a few weeks ago from Mango in Spain but it’s not warm enough to wear it yet here.

  • Joyce B replied 4 years ago

    Lovely and happy outfit! Sam is very confident in your well balanced poses, he knows you do well with those :)

    I am personally very smug that we are wearing bright pink sweaters today :0)

    You look terrific in your spring look! Love the pink sweater and the pants together. Also, Sam is adorable!

  • Angie replied 4 years ago

    Oh my word! THANK YOU for the awfully kind words, ladies. They make my current job at YLF easier. I appreciate your positive attitudes more than you know.

    MsMaven and Lisa, thanks for the overgrown hair love :)

    Jasmine, you are lovely.

    Suz, YES. I wear my green specs every night. I love them too. Good memory.

    Rachy, you must get a Dynasty top at some point…..

    Jaime, YES. The sweatshirt is from BR - and I got it for $39. I’m not good at balancing either…..

    JoyceB, getting better at my poses, finally. Sam is brave!

    Helena, our industrial staircase looks better in the pic - we need to remodel. And a big pink HIGH FIVE.

    Glory, lovely to see you chime in. How are you doing?

    Suntiger, bubblegum is neon!

    Laura, mutton sleeve sisters unite :)
