You get a divine long-sleeved t-shirt, a skort, a pair of boots, underpants, and a hair thingy.
For all the pastel, it's pretty nice, and I see a lot of girls wearing this sort of thing around the mall where I work. I love the detail on the shirt. It's a really fun pattern!
The skort is okay - nothing to write home about, but it makes the outfit supercute, so I'm not against it. I'm just waiting to find things to pair with it, rather than just the matching shirt!
The boots, though, are a bit ick. They feel like suede on the outside and they have velcro up the back to help get them on and off. It's still not easy to do, though, and I can imagine them developing lots of wrinkles and folds from trying to shove them onto a doll's feet. Also, with the silver ribbon around the top and their pale blue color, I can't think of much that they'd be divine with.
I've got Bea wearing the shirt with the cropped pants from the Kicking Back outfit and it looks MUCH better. It reminds me more of a play shirt that way, than when paired with the skort. Also, it's made of a good t-shirt material, like you get with nice shirts at Limited Too or somewhere, and it doesn't remind me much of my pyjama shirts at all - except for the ones I wear with jeans when I don't feel like getting dressed to go to the grocery store in the winter time.

Overall, the outfit is cute. However, I'm not very fond of the shirt, nor the boots. I think that the strappy shoes that are sold separately are a much better choice for this outfit. My favorite pieces by far would be the skort and the cute undies. I must say that I'm disappointed with the meet outfit this time and I give it a B.
I think this outfit is sooo cute and so fuctional! my dollies love it and it's a snap to put on. I didn't have trouble with the shoes like everyone else did.
I love my American girls and my rabbits

I think they usually change every couple of years.
While this isn't my favorite meet outfit, I do like the colors and it seems like it might be mix and matchable. The boots are a little better than I expected, which is good because I'm not a fan of boots. Here is my Marina in this outfit.
At first I hated this outfit and was mad they changed it (I really loved the Ready for Fun outfit), but when I got an actual doll in this one, I fell in love with it. I think it's the pastel and pretty blue. Now I like this one a bit better than the old one. As much as I like the red and the jeans, it just looks really nice on the dolls. I like the skort; it is a nice touch. The boots are a bit tricky to get on, but surprisingly my nieces have not had much trouble when they play with it. The shirt design is not my favorite, but I think it works as a whole, and my older niece (who was 9 when they changed it) loves it.

The skort looks like something I would have worn at age 10, but I am not using it on my dolls now. Why? I was 10 in late 1987 and the first three quarters of 1988. So it would not be my style or fashionable right now. It may not scream "eighties" out loud, but I do not really see little girls wear skorts like that except for some athletic activities or as part of a uniform. B.
The shirt is fine. The colors may not be the favorites of some people. But the style and design are all right. It can be worn with other pants or simple skirts. A.
Underpants are good, as usual. A.
The boots- I wish they had included tennis shoes and socks instead. The outfit seems like something worn in a rather warm season due to the skort. So why the Ugg style boots? C.
Overall- not terrible, but neither Elise nor Inga are wearing it right now.

I really don't like this outfit, but I love the undies! I ordered them for Nicki (since she comes sans underwear) and ended up buying three pair for some of the other girls too. I Like Your Style undies - GMOH-04 ($3 a pair) get an A from me!
I like this outfit all right. It doesn't really go with my doll's personality, but it is quite cute.
I dislike the graphics on the shirt, but that's just my tastes at the time. I would have liked something like that when I was in the AG target age group. In fact, I recall having a pair of pajamas when I was little that was in similar color and pattern as the shirt.
The skort and boots are just a shade lighter in color than the jacket and pants from the tracksuit, so there might be some mix and match potential right there in the right combinations.
I'm a fan of undies, and the ones that come with the outfit are great -- they're not too thick and they don't peek over the back of pants like the jeans from the Sparkly Tunic outfit.

I don't like this outfit. The shirt is okay and goes with a lot of stuff, and the undies are ADORABLE, but the boots are just plain weird looking and don't go with the outfit, plus they're getting wrinkles from being put on and off. I'm afraid that one day they'll crack. The material they're made of feels very cheap. The skort is bleh. It has nice shorts underneath but that's about it.
I'm not very fond of this meet outfit to be honest. I don't like the pattern of the top and the boots are really bad. I'm planning to remove the silver trim on the boots and change the colour somehow. I love the underwear and the skort is pretty nice. It looks great with other pieces. Here's a photo of April wearing the skort with other AG pieces. I would rate this a B.

I didn't like how this outfit looked when I first saw it in the catalogs, but now that I have it I really like it! I just love the bright, happy colors of the shirt-- it might not be your cup of tea, but to me, I think it looks fantastic! The skort is a really pretty shade of light blue-- not only does it match the shirt, but I can also see it matching a lot of the other tops I have.
Although the boots look OK with the outfit, they feel really cheap-- not something I'd like to wear myself! The purple ponytail holder is cute, and the underwear is also cute with the silver and blue lining across the top. Although it looks fine on my #25, I especially like it on my Mia for some reason. I would give this outfit an A, but because the boots are of rather low quality, I'll give it an A-.

I think this outfit is really boring. I was pretty disappointed when I got my #21 and saw that she came in this. The shirt isn't really that versatile, but I do like the shirt and the boots with jeans tucked into them. That's really the only way I've found to adequately mix-n-match this.
The outfit has grown on me greatly. When it first came out, I was all "Yuck! What was wrong with the Ready for Fun?" Now, I like it. The shirt isn't exactly something I would wear, but it is still better than the "Real Me" shirt and the Star Hoodie dress.
The only good part of the whole outfit is the skort. I got this outfit with Sadie and I honestly didn't like it - changed her right away. The skort I find to be pretty flexible because it looks great with pastels and black. The boots were okay... not that they really match anything. The shirt is unrealistic compared to past and present meet outfits.
I bought this outfit from a board member and overall I am unimpressed. Don't get me wrong! It is a cute outfit and defnitly something I would have loved to wear when I was around the age of 11 or younger.
Shirt- Its ok. I don't have much to say about it other than "ok". I have not found much I like to match t wth from my dolls' clothes options. On a PM doll it will fit but it is a little snug. B-
Skort- I loooooove it! Love it! Love it! At one point in time, I did own a dark blue skort just like this and I loved that skort. I find this skort has a lot of mix and match potential which is a big plus to me. This also is a bit snug on PM dolls but it does fit over my PM Sam's booty. A
Boots- they are decent but I don't find much they will match. But I do like them because I will use them as a rainboot stand in when completing an outfit. B
If you plan to get anything from this outfit I recomend the skort!!!
