I suspect next year they’ll be a little more specific…

****Don’t forget to enter the Cristina Ashley Designs giveaway here***

So, Macy had a district orchestra performance last night.  They sent home a note regarding how they wanted the kids to dress.

“White shirt or blouse” (yes, they really used the word blouse)?



“Black or navy skirt or pants”?



Figuring out a way to still stand out from the crowd?



(Man I need to sweep the porch!)

    She is adorable.
    Now go sweep your porch. ;)

  19. Jennifer says:

    hahaha! Love it! I've had to wear symphony garb for almost 20 yrs now – oh the number of long black {boring} dresses I have. How fun that must have been! Good for you for letting her do it! That's what memories are made of!

  20. Sew It To Me says:

    That is AMAZING! I love it. We have a freind from church who wears fun socks and unique shoes with his suits :)

  21. I just love her tights and tennis shoes…what a great way to stand out and been seen among everyone else who is dressed like you…

  23. Dawn K. says:

    I love her originality! Plus I'm sure it was easy to spot her when you wanted to take photos =) Great blog! I'm your newest follower!


  24. I love those shoes. She looks great!

  25. Courtney says:

    I used to do the exact same thing when I was in orchestra. In fact I even did it in college. I wore pink high heels with my all black ensemble in order to have my little touch of flare. This was when I was dating my husband and his family came to the concert, they thought I was hilarious. She looks awesome, way to let her get away with it!

  26. Perfect!

  27. Love that Macy.
    And have you swept that porch yet?

  28. Heather (wife to Dave, mom to Jenna and Adam) says:


  29. That is awesome!! I love it!

  30. Anne Maskell says:

    Hi Char! I'm giving you the Versatile Blogger award! details will be on my blog tonight!

  31. I love it! There is nothing wrong with being yourself!

  32. Joni Walton says:

    She is so your child.

  33. She's so cute — I love it!


  34. Hahaha that it FANTASTIC! Good girl!

  35. Way to GO to both of you!! For her, because she has the confidence to go her own way, and for you for letting her, and helping her have that confidence!!!!

  36. Melanie Jade says:

    I love it!!!


  37. Karin (the Mrs.) says:

    haha, she looks great!

  38. Awesome, LOVE it! I hated it when they demanded that my son wear black dress pants, white dress shirt and a specific color of tie. Thank goodness we always have church clothes, but we do khaki pants and since I had to buy stupid black pants, I refused to buy a new tie and let him pick out whatever he wanted to wear there. Way to maintain your individuality!

  39. Kristine Robinson says:

    Freaking love that kid!!

  40. Nurse Heidi says:

    The last picture made me laugh out loud! What a girl!

  41. Chanté says:

    Not that I'm taking credit or anything, BUT… she obviously learned from the best stander-outer there is! ;)
    I love Macy!
