Busy Philipps has teamed up with LOFT for the fashion company’s fall campaign. In a series of comedy shorts, the actress is seen starring alongside her adorable seven-year-old daughter, Birdie, who delivers some hard and honest fashion advice to her mother.
“I already told you, that outfit!” exclaims the youngster, pointing to the ensemble that she thinks her mother should wear on her first day on set. After failing to take Birdie’s advice, Busy learns the hard way that daughter’s do know best. “I thought it’d be funny to have Birdie seeing me off to my first day of work, and dealing with my anxiety and nervousness over picking out the perfect ‘first day’ outfit,” the Cougar Town star told WWD. “Which, by the way, is something that happens every time I start a new show.”
The short, which Busy also directed, shows the special bond that the star shares with her daughter. Fans of the actress have become familiar with both Birdie and her younger sister Cricket, 2, thanks to the hilarious tweets the Dawson's Creek alum has shared documenting her kids’ hijinks and funny sayings.
Birdie(who is 6 and a half) just asked me if I think she is aging well. I'm dying.

In the second video of the series, “Fall is Hot" (available Oct. 8 on LOFT’s social media channels), Busy plays the quintessential fan of fall who is ready to embrace the highlights of the season (think pumpkin spice lattes and comfy knit sweaters) even though the heat of summer is still in the air.
