One of my favorite things about thrifting is that it gives me the ability to try styles I otherwise wouldn't. I would of never paid full price or probably even sale price for this skirt; the pencil skirt and florals made me a bit hesitant. But for less than $5 I was willing to give it a try and I'm very glad I did! I love how this skirt fits and the florals are easier to wear than I expected.

For New Years we made plans to go over to another family's house to celebrate. This was my attempt to to be casual and kid friendly while still being little festive. I'm glad I didn't get too dressed up because we were only there for about half-an-hour before Little Lady got sick. Luckily, it was only a 24hr thing and so far it hasn't spread to anyone else.
When I'm getting ready Little Lady is almost always providing me with company. She asks lots of questions about what/why I'm doing things and if she "can have a little bit of" of this or that lotion/make-up. This was what I wore for a birthday-day-date with Jeremy. While getting dressed Little Lady disappeared and came back wearing her blue dress - treasuring these times when she wants to be just like her mama.
