Warning: I went a little nuts with the pictures this week, especially on the first ensemble because my cutie-pie of a daughter consented to pose with me, and I absolutely love the pics she’s in.

Momma Go Round 

No Model Lady







Dress: Beall’s ($12), Belt: Umm…can’t remember, but you know it was cheap!, Shoes: Goodwill ($3)

TOTAL: $15-ish




Top: Beall’s ($6), Tank: Walmart ($3), Shorts: Goodwill ($3), Shoes: Goodwill ($3), Belt: Goodwill ($1), Headband: made by me

Oh, and check out who I found hanging around my ankle when I zoomed in on this pic. I don’t know whether to be flattered or creeped out:


Can you see him?




A side note on my aviators: it’s a good thing I’m better at keeping children alive than sunglasses because I do not exaggerate when I say that I have gone through at least 8 pairs in the last year alone (maybe more). They last about a month, and then a little boy steps on them, or I step on them (which makes one wonder what they’re doing near feet so often), or the little screw falls out never to be found again. It’s a disease.  I just got this pair at Marshall’s for $7 and am hoping they buck the trend, but I’m not betting on it.

Top: Gap ($6), Skirt: Goodwill ($4), Shoes: Goodwill ($3), Belt: Goodwill ($1)

TOTAL: $15 (with the shades)





Top: Abercrombie (I’m ashamed to admit…I don’t like that store, $10), Shorts: Goodwill ($3), Shoes: Goodwill ($3)

TOTAL: $16





Top: Goodwill ($3), Jeans: Factory connection ($10), Belt: Goodwill ($1), Shoes: Beall’s (wait for it…waaaait for it…$0.88, yes that’s right, folks…EIGHTY-EIGHT CENTS! I don’t even remember how I did it except that it involved a ridiculously good sale, coupons, and BOGO, but I still consider it among my greatest bargains of all time), P.S. I’m in love with my vintage grape-cluster necklace, which I also wore here with a tragic pair of walking shorts ($4) P.P.S. These photos were taken on July 4th at my parents’ house, and this outfit represents my concession to dressing patriotically: red, white, and blue (jeans). Har, har.

TOTAL: $18.88 ; )







Top: Gap ($10), Tank: Old Navy ($2), Shorts: Beall’s ($8), Bandana: Gap ($2), Shoes: Marshall’s ($20, which is a splurge for me, but MAN do I love them!)


Well, that does it for Wardrobe Wednesday, but join me tomorrow for Thoughtful Thursday when I will reveal my thrifting methods and the five best (clothing) deals I’ve ever found. 

**Update: I’ll be posting my Summer in Snapshots collage a little later on today in a separate post**


  1. I would love it if Evaleigh and Della could be friends! And sunglasses…sigh. It’s terrible. I may have already lost the pair of I just bought (though I’m pretty sure they’re at my mom’s house).

  2. I think Evaleigh and Della would be great friends if we lived closer!
    Love all the outfits, as usual. 🙂
    I just did a post about sunglasses…. they never last for me, either. So I buy ’em cheap too. It’s kind of a running joke in our house!

  3. Totally impressed!! I never find anything when shopping goodwill… :(. There must be a secret room of cute clothes!! Ha ha!! My fav was the red top! And all the shoes!!! Oh- and what a cool accessory to get a dragon fly!!=priceless!!!

  4. Love them, all of them!!

    Especially the ones with the little cutie in the beginning, she is a doll

  5. Love these outfits! Love them even more that they’re thrifted! I think I need a personal Goodwill shopper to help me find these kinds of goodies.

  6. You look wonderful and so many great outfits but your gorgeous daughter steals the show, what a sweetie. Have a wonderful week lovely. ax

I love hearing from you guys!
