OOTD and Kidlet Style

Some days, you just want to take pictures.

You throw on a colorful scarf...

...maybe a handmade personalized necklace you got from a friend....

...when the kiddos whose names are on said necklace decide to join the party!

Then, another one shows up!

So, being the flexible, understanding mommy that I am (HA, if you know me, you know that's not true!), I just roll with it.

Good thing I've got these little ones around to remind me to SMILE!

All the girls' clothes are from our local Once Upon A Child.  You should stop by and see me sometime!  Not only do you get great deals, but you can also bring items in to re-sell and get store credit for new stuff!  I didn't have to pay out of pocket for anything the girls are wearing here, I just brought in the items that they had outgrown, and used the store credit to get their new stuff.  It's a pretty great system.  (Disclaimer: yes, I work at the store, so I might have a biased opinion, but I honestly do think it's a great system.  Try it out sometime!)


  1. Thanks so much for the comment you left on my blog! ^_^ You're always so kind! Oh and your little ones are precious! You dress them well! My grandmother used to make dresses for me to wear when I was at that age. Once I started elementary school, my mom had me mostly in thrift clothes that didn't match. Haha. Maybe that's where my odd-ball style comes from? :D

    1. Man, I WISH I had time to actually sew for my kids, your grandmother must've had more talent and free time than I do! I'm pretty sure I got my love for thrifting from my mother too, she never wanted to spend any more than she had to on clothes! Goodwill is still my happy place to this day, there's something about searching the racks for a treasure that's just awesome.

  2. Awww, cute kids
