Today I made a trip to the Thrift store with an entire generational entourage. I went to GW and SA with my grandma, my mom and my two little ones! Princess Sparkles and Pigtails were actually well behaved (guess they're used to shopping). It probably helped that my mom, Fair Isle, tootled around with Sparkles and let her pick out toys and $1 clothes. Fair Isle would hold up various pieces and Sparkles would let her know which ones were pretty and which ones were not. As for Pigtails, I just fed her A LOT of graham crackers. My grandmother, Socks, didn't buy anything but enjoyed pushing around her cart and taking a nap on one of the sale couches in the middle of the store.
I was inspired to wear my new red jeans (yet another birthday gift from Fierce, Fedora and Fancy) after seeing Jenn from the Suburb Experiment and her cute laid back outfit. I started out with something similar then sorta morphed it into...not sure what style it is...kinda JLo in her fly girl days? I was excited about these jeans because I know they're super versatile, in fact, I think I'll do a 3 Ways to Wear it post on it later! I paired it with this striped top that I bought from a local boutique that was closing down. I got it for $3.50!!!
Anyway, it was a long but fun day. I always enjoy visiting Fair Isle and Henley, and it was nice to spend some time with Socks! (For Mother's Day I'm going with Fair Isle and Socks to a Tea Party/Fashion Show, can't wait!). We may all enjoy thrifting, but something we're not thrifty on is spending time together as a family!
