Before I say/show you anything else, let me remind you that the clock is ticking on the giveaway for this cute lil’ thang.

IMG_2541Go here and scroll to the bottom of the post to find out how to get your name in the hat before Thursday night at midnight because winner takes all on Friday!

Aaaaand here we go with Wardrobe Wednesday. This week, I’ve added a feature that I haven’t officially named but am thinking about calling SPAHMD!, which, when translated, goes a little something like, “She paid HOW much?? Daaaaang!” (okay, so it’s not really a proper acronym; I’ll keep working on it).

I “thrift” (I love that blog-world has made that a verb) almost all of my clothes from Goodwill, and while that may skeeve some people out, there are plenty of others that either do the same or want to know just how good of deals you can actually get.

So glad you asked! At the end of each outfit source list, I’ll also include how much I paid for the entire thing. Prepare to be shocked. (Wow, that was dramatic; I have goose-bumps now).



Top:: Banana Republic ($7), Skirt:: 21 ($20), Gladiators:: Decree/JCPenney ($10), Bracelet:: my mom brought it home from Paris (*le sigh*).

TOTAL: $37 (Pretty high for me)

TOTAL: $14 (Now, that’s more like it!)











Top:: free loot from a Naked Lady exchange—why yes, I do like using that term even though I could just say “clothes swap” ($0), Jeans:: Express/Marshall’s ($17), Belt:: Gap ($2), Sandals: Birkenstocks/Goodwill ($3), Flower pin:: made my me
TOTAL: $23

Top:: Goodwill ($2), Shorts:: American Eagle/Naked Lady ($0), Platforms (wore them all day=surprisingly comfy, btw):: Goodwill ($2), Necklace:: Goodwill ($1) Ring:: Pier 1 ($6)

Definitely my least favorite outfit of the week, but Adelaide had an…*ahem*…accident on my first choice, so we had to punt.

Top:: Naked Lady ($0), Skirt:: Target/Goodwill—with the tags still on ($3), Sandals:: Old Navy ($6), Earrings:: Goodwill ($2), Bracelet:: Goodwill ($1)

TOTAL: $12


I grabbed Mandy and forced her into a Wardrobe Wednesday moment without any prior notice, and she still looks stinkin’ cute! (Plus—and no fair!—she’s been hanging out at the pool, and I—shield your eyes!—have not)

Top:: American Eagle ($6), Skirt:: Goodwill ($3), Belt:: Goodwill ($1), Sandals:: Goodwill ($3), Necklace:: Walmart ($6)

TOTAL: $19
