WIW 5/30: Missoni for Target ALGO mom and daughter

I admit my outfits usually have a lot going on..you know that advice that says, "When you feel your outfit is complete, subtract one piece?" Well, I'm always trying to ADD just one more pattern or matchy matchy element to my outfit. It's all very deliberate, but I wonder if the end result is too chaotic. You'll let me know if I've crossed the line from ALGO to TMGO, right? I was wondering about this all day (is this too over the top?), but then I got lots of compliments from coworkers and patients...even my elderly and/or super sick hospitalized patients (who I thought wouldn't care or pay attention) told me, "Doctor, you look so pretty today!" A lot of people liked my shoes. I don't normally wear jeans and sneakers to work, but I was on call and running around a lot and wanted something comfy, plus the jeans bookend the necklace and the sneakers match the purse.

DD is similarly into ALGO pattern mixed looks...and we both wore Missoni for Target! Check out her outfit that she picked out completely by herself (except her white school shirt that was required for the field trip). Great outfit to go to a field trip to the textile weaving center...a striped bag that she wove herself in class, Missoni for Target striped hoodie jacket, Crazy 8 patchwork quilt skirt, and sparkly light up sequin shoes! I love her ALGO fashion sense...like mother, like daughter!

    You look great! Love the necklace layered over that blouse!

    I love the matching sneakers and bag. You do ALGO to perfection. I'm jealous of DD's outfit too. I'm so impressed with the basket she wove. Wow!

  • Sheila replied 6 years ago

    Hey! To me this is just perfect! But I gotta admit, I do love me some pattern-mixing. Still, I think what you and daughter wore looks super-fun and just right for the schedules and activities of your day. Your daughter is getting some terrific mentoring in Fab-ness!

    I LOVE IT!! Your ALGO style here is remarkable and very skillfully put together. Such verve! Organized and fresh playful chaos!


    And SO K-word worthy! Your little cherub is an excellent stylish ALGO cherry on top :)

    It is ALGO, but it completely works. Somehow the b/w print of the bag and shoes coordinates and doesn't  compete with the blouse, and you have the BEST necklaces! I love this one, and I love the Kate Spade butterfly necklace, too!

    Your little one has a great style. So do you. Love the sneakers.

  • Adelfa replied 6 years ago

    I think all the white grounds the look. You both look great!

  • annagybe replied 6 years ago

    Yes, it's a lot of look. But it works.

  • Lantana replied 6 years ago

    Echoing Adelfa, it's the white that holds it all together and your sweep of satiny hair.
    I love that your daughter chooses her own outfits. When kids do that, it's like their artwork, so effortlessly fab.

    So cheerful, this must have lifted your patients' spirits. And your daughter - what a stylish little gal, though she certainly has an excellent teacher/DNA source. She needs her own profile!

  • Liz A. replied 6 years ago

    when you get compliments like that, i think it speaks to a great color palette on you.

  • Scarlet replied 6 years ago

    You and your daughter are mix masters. Seriously, I think it is genetic and she gets it from you. So cute that she wove her bag!

  • Beth Ann replied 6 years ago

    Fresh and vibrant, but not chaotic!  The details harmonize well and the overall effect is still relaxed and easy.

    Love DD's color sense!

  • celia replied 6 years ago

    This is ALGO done right, no wonder your brighten up your patients days.
    Your DD is too cute for words. My DD is also a master at pattern mixing and color combinations and I am so the opposite , it is funny when she tries to help me with what I should wear :)

    That little girl is going to be shopping your closet before you know it...and weaving bags to sell on EBay.
