Striped Maternity Dress, GS Lillian Necklace and Mermaids

"Mommy, last night I had a good dream!"
Princess Sparkles has been having nightmares about biting orange spiders,
so it came as such a relief to hear she had a good dream. 
I asked her what she dreamed about and she told me,
"You were a mermaid and you turned me into one too!"


NAVY AND WHITE STRIPED DRESS - Motherhood Maternity (thrifted), $2.50
NAVY CARDIGAN - Express, $15
BOOTIES - Old Navy, $6.50
HANNAH NECKLACE - c/o Shelly at GS Lillian


Hannah Necklace - GS Lillian
(get yours here)

This is one of the fabulous thrifted maternity dresses that came from my sister, Polka Dots, in Hawaii.  I must say the people over there in Hawaii have some really great taste!  The booties are from Old Navy clearance.  This beautiful Hannah Necklace was given to me by Shelly over at GS Lillian.  She asked me in December to do a guest post and as a "thank you" I received this amazing necklace!  It also comes in different colors.  If you haven't checked out Shelly's blog or her GS Lillian jewelry, you definitely have to do so!!!

Princess Sparkles in mermaid costume with "added flair!"

There's nothing more fun than receiving packages in the mail, especially when they're surprises, like clothes and accessories, from someone else.  I really appreciate the thrifted dresses and the beautiful necklace.  It's like a good mermaid dream come true!

Very adorable! Your sister must be a thrift store guru, because that dress is wonderful. I picked up the same Old Navy booties on clearance in a gray color. But I love them in the tan too. Very versatile and surprisingly comfortable.

Awesome. I love mermaids too. My girls have been watching this show lately on tv called H2O. It is all about 3 teen mermaids.

I would love to be a mermaid -- if I could swim. Which I can't. Even though I have taken over 3 years' worth of swimming lessons. I think something is wrong with me.
