A Comfy Casual Mommy Outfit and a Discount!!!

BLACK SPLATTERED BUTTERFLY TOP - Fate
BEIGE COTTON SHORTS - Gap
CREAM WEDGES - Payless
BLACK WATCH - Zodiac
SUNGLASSES - Kenneth Cole

"Mommy, sometimes I love you so much that I love you backwards!"  That's what Princess Sparkles told me this morning (mind you, about an hour earlier she did tell me she wasn't going to love me anymore because I told her she shouldn't jump off the couch and pretend to fly...but we'll just let that one go). 

I'm really excited because on Monday I'll be posting my first giveaway in honor of the 4th of July (and almost having 200 followers!).  I'm so thankful I met Jaclyn through the Love and Envelopes Birthday Club back in April and now we're like old blog friends! 

In addition to the giveaway, Jaclyn is offering Spinning Threads readers a 15% off discount on their entire purchase at her etsy shop, Jaclyn1423.  You just have to type in the code 14spinningthreads23

Vintage Cuff Bracelet - $14

Vintage Multi-Strand Turquoise Bead Necklace - $15
Anyway, better get a move on.  We're off to a swim playdate for the girls and it takes forever to slather on the sunscreen and squeeze them into their bathing suits.  So have a great holiday weekend (if you live in the US and Canada) and look for the giveaway on Monday.  It's so exciting that it's almost backwards!!!

Your girls are so funny! I have so much trouble wearing oversized or bigger shape tops, I tend to feek like I'm drowning in fabric! Love your wedges :)

Terri said...

Congrats on reaching that many followers. You'll need to remember what she said about loving you backwards when she hits the teen years.

Jess said...

I love that first top and the turquoise necklace! Hope you and the girls have a great 4th! I'm extra excited because we are throwing a barbeque :)

Awww what a sweet saying (and then revoked so you gotta take what you can!) I love the oversized shirt- great for casual and also could be dressed up!

Mrs. J said...

Aww, that's so cute! I love this outfit backwards too :) That blouse has such a pretty, blousy silhousette, it looks so pretty with the shorts and wedges! You know I love a good dressed up shorts look!

Bonnie said...

I really like that bracelet and necklace. The necklace especially. And the bracelet. I can't decide. They are both beyond pretty.

I swear, you could wear a paper bag and still look good. What a pair of legs! That's some achievement getting both girls in a shot. Love Princess Sparkle's line and imagination. What a joy to see the world thru a child's eyes!
