Little Lady and I were super excited when we saw that Old Navy was selling women's and girls' dresses in the same pattern. Or at least what we thought was the same pattern. Old Navy's online photos of the girl's dress showed the flowers as dark orange/red instead of the white you see on Little Lady's dress. I was prepared to return them, but Little Lady was with me when I opened the package and was excited to wear them even if they didn't truly match. She was happy that the patterns were the same even if the colors were not...I could learn a lot from her half-glass-full mentality.
She accessorized her outfit all on her own - the girl totally has more style than her mama. Since our dresses went together we decided to do our hair in the same style too. I've been on a bit of a dutch braid craze for the last year or so and I don't see it every stopping. You can also see in the picture below that my hair is starting to go grey. I haven't dyed it in over fifteen years, Honestly, I don't want to deal with the maintenance hassle. I tell myself it's just glitter strands...but I'm only 35 and it's a LOT of grey hair.
This shirt is over ten years old! I bought it at H&M and it's still one of my favorites. I have thing for buttons. Add the umbrellas and I'm pretty sure this shirt was made for me! The skirt is a Goodwill find and the booties are by Nine West.
I recently purchased this dress from Anthropologie. It was on sale and I the embroidery and colors are breathtaking. The picture doesn't do it justice!
This dress is orgianlly by Gap but I picked it up at a Goodwill. Blues and greens are more favorite color combination. The pattern is actually little ladybugs...if you've ever met my boys you'll understand why I had to get this too add to my closet. The sweater is another thrift find; I like how warm and cozy it is. The jeans are from Banana Republic and are my current fav. They are high-waisted and stretchy but not to the point where they feel baggy at the end of they day.
I found this dress on ThredUp last year and it's become one of my go to fall dresses. Navy and wine is another one of my favorite color combinations - especially in the fall. It's funny, I think all of our family has a piece of clothing in these colors.
In the picture above Z is asking that I restart Your Welcome. For the last month or so we've listened to this song at least ten times every day.
I figure it's only fair that also I show you some of my more casual looks too. This sweater was another ThredUp find. I like that the quilted and pearl detail dresses it up a little bit. These moto sweatpants are from Gap and are super comfortable. They are a little bit big but that's one of the things I like about them.
