This is one of my favorite outfits. When I saw it in the store, my new Julie 'had' to have it. It is beutiful on her. The dress is made of denim abd has little flower like things on it. The tee shirt is pale blue, and had cute little flowers on one of the sleeves. I only use the boots with this outfit as I have nithing else that would go with them, but they are so cute! The charm is a little piece of plastic to go on your necklace. Not really anything special, but then again I don't like charms.

This outfit doesn't seem to get much love, but I like it! Here is the lovely Zoe modeling it for you:
Shirt: The shirt is a bluish turquoise (bluer than the jumper) and has 3/4 length sleeves. The outfit I got has shorter sleeves than in the AG picture, but I actually like that because in the AG picture they look like an awkward length. At the bottom of one sleeve, there's a cluster of printed on flowers, and the bottom of the other sleeve has an American Girl logo. I would prefer flowers on both sleeves or not at all, but that's a teeny tiny complaint. My one issue with the shirt is that it fits weirdly around the armpits. It's like they made the sleeve holes a little too big, if that makes sense. I was worried the jumper wouldn't fit properly over it, but thankfully it's fine. Because of the armpit issue, the shirt may look a little odd when worn without the jumper. Not awful though. I will have to get a picture later!
Jumper: The color of the jumper is a pretty and rather unusual dark turquoise. The fabric is like a light corduroy and there are little clumps of 4 embroidered dots every inch. The bottom of the skirt falls right at the knees. No complaints at all with the jumper and I think it could be cute with other shirts.
Boots: The color is actually a bit off to me. They're a different shade than the jumper. However, they're reasonably cute anyway. I didn't think I would like them because in the AG picture they look crinkled, but they don't really fit that way. These shoes velcro up the back, but you can get them on your doll without messing with the velcro if she isn't wearing socks or tights. I know this because at first I didn't realize they had velcro Boots fit on fine over thick tights.
So overall, yes, I quite like this outfit. The color is really nice and the style is good. Pretty, but not too frilly, and it seems a bit younger than a lot of the outfits AG offers right now, which I consider to be a good thing! It looks like something I may have worn back in the mid 1990s if it had full length sleeves. My one complaint other than the weird fit of the sleeves around the armpits is the lack of tights. The doll's legs look naked without tights! Light blue tights to match the shirt would have been great. I just put some white tights on my doll though and called it good. Oh and a little hair do dad of some sort would have been nice, too. Regardless, I give this a B+. The lack of tights and hair thing for the price combined with the odd fit of the shirt knocked it down a tad for me.
