Journey Girls Pink Plaid Outfit

A Great Casual Outfit

When I saw this outfit in the store I immediately thought that it was design with Kelsey in mind.  Kelsey is the adventurous Journey Girl, enjoys being outside, hiking, and exploring.  This outfit look like a great exploring outfit. 

Journey Girls pink plaid outfit.
The outfit starts with grayish brown boots (the same boots that are always with Journey Girl outfits) for trudging around in the great outdoors.  Then there are black leggings for pants (leggings are not pants, not for dolls…not for humans), a cute pink gingham long sleeved shirt, a brown puffy vest with pockets, and a brown belt.  And as always…there is a purse.  The purse does not seem to fit with this outfit, but maybe that’s because I think that this an exploring outfit.

The pink shirt is a long fitted shirt.  It goes past Kelsey’s thighs.  That makes the leggings more acceptable.  The shirt Velcro’s, which makes it easy to get off and on, but buttons would have made it look really nice.  The shirt also has a wide collar that is very cute.  It is a well made shirt.  It can be worn without the vest and still look nice. 

Even without the vest, the outfit looks nice.
I like the vest.  It looks like an explorers vest.  It has “pockets” to hold things in…well you could hold things in them, if they were really pockets.  All they are is flaps sewn over fake pockets.  It looks nice, but it would be neat to have real pockets to put things in as Kelsey goes exploring. The brown is a good color and can go with other outfits pretty easily.  I like the belt that comes with it also.  It helps break things up.  It is really nice when the vest is off.  It’s too small to double as a headband.  It has an easy Velcro strip in the back for getting it on and off.

The belt Velcros in the back for easy removal.
I’m not a fan of leggings, but in this situation they look okay.  I can see where jeans may have looked funny with this outfit…so okay the leggings work.  The boots are nice.  I’m glad that they are a different color other than brown or black.  They don’t quite match anything, but they aren’t off enough to take away from the outfit.  As I have mentioned before…I hate the slit down the back.  I wish Journey Girls would come up with a different design for these boots.  From the front they are super cute though!

Let's get some nicer boots Toys R Us…come on!
Oh, I forgot to mention the purse.  It's black and shiny.  That’s it.

All ratings are out of 10

Value 8 – Like the blue bloused outfit the quality on this outfit is good.  There is good versatility with the pieces also.  If the price was closer to $12 all of the time, I would give it a higher value score.  But since most of the time it is closer to $20…the value score is a little lower.

Fitment 9 – Great fitment.  Everything fits great.  Wish the boots were better.

Versatility 9  There are a lot of great pieces that can be used with all sorts of other outfits.  The other thing that is great is that some of the pieces of clothing can be used for casual, work clothes, or more going out types of outfits.

Cuteness 9  I think this is one of the cutest non-dress outfits.  The only outfit that compares to it is Dana’s meet outfit.  It’s cute and functional at the same time.

Overall 9  This is a wonderful everyday outfit.  Kelsey can go out exploring in this outfit.  She can go camping, or biking, or even go to school in this outfit.  It’s a wonderful all around outfit.  That and the versatility of the pieces make it a great addition to your wardrobe.

Would the journey girl outfits fit american girl dolls?
I don't have a journey girl and I love that outfit!!

JGKelsey said...

Probably not. The shirt and pants might fit...but I doubt it. The Journey Girls are thinner than American Girl dolls. So I don't think it will fit. I'll double check this weekend and let you know.

Thanks Emma. It is really cute on her. Not fancy, but cute.
