Get the Celebrity Mom Look for Less: Alyson Hannigan

Mr. Candy and I are huge fans of How I Met Your Mother (original show title:  How We Stole All of Our Show Ideas Directly from Candy and Mr. Candy’s Life) — and not just because the characters drink a lot.  But mostly because of that.  (Fellow HIMYM fans:  Remember the Pineapple episode?  TOTALLY the original The Hangover.)  I also adore Lily’s, aka Alyson Hannigan’s, style on the show and used to think, Wow, maybe I should become a kindergarten teacher so I can afford clothes like that, too!  Then they cleverly addressed that with the whole credit card debt storyline and — wait, where was I?

Oh yeah.  Alyson Hannigan’s style on and off the show — I dig it.  Here’s a cute and casual look for us moms that she funked-up with a vest.  Also a flattering ensemble for most shapes, whether pregnant (as she is in the picture) or not.  The blouse she’s wearing alone cost more than $200 at Barney’s, but I found some equally cute (or so I think) substitutes to help us get the look for less:


Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. She also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats who enjoy blanketing every inch of the house in kitty fur.
