What to Wear >> To Meet the Parents

I am so excited to be partnering up with two awesome ladies for a "What to Wear" series! Every other Thursday we'll show you style ideas from each of us about what we might wear for a specific outing. First up? What to wear to meet the parents. Lucky for me, I've been married for 5 years and met my husband's parents about 10 years before that (yup!), so I have never actually had to encounter that awkward scenario. Well, I'm assuming it's a bit awkward, or at least a bit nerve-wracking. I decided to go with an outfit that's trendy without being too young looking, and that doesn't show too much skin. I figured something that says "fun but grown-up" fits the bill. At least that's how I'd want to come off.
This turquoise color is so great. It really livens up so many other things! I loved the way the mustard color of the purse plays off the blue.
Then Mitz wanted to get in to the action. That guy...
