Plaid Blazer and a Precious Boy

"He's so cute, my precious boy."
That's what Princess Sparkles says in baby talk to Bucket.
Sparkles really loves her baby brother. 
She holds him, pats him and gives him his pacifier.
She's a really good big sister.
Now only if she could teach him to sleep more and cry less!

PLAID BLAZER - Merona (thrifted)
BLUE SKINNY JEANS - Yaso (via Macys)
SHOES - Naturalizer (thrifted)



Thank goodness for "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.  It gave me the perfect excuse to wear my thrifted blazer.  I found both the blazer and the shoes at the Goodwill by Fair Isle's house.  I liked the blazer so much I even paid full thrift store price ($10) for it, then had Fair Isle add some elbow patches!  I've never had Naturalizer shoes before but the criss-cross top caught my eye and after wearing them I have to say they are very comfortable!


The proud big sister!

It's definitely not as easy to do things like thrifting or going out to dinner (or heck, eat dinner at home in peace) with three kids.  But hopefully someday soon (okay, not that soon) Princess Sparkles will be old enough to take care of the other two and I'll have more free time!

This post, well, I'm amazed at how well you're going out and living, getting dressed even! You make 3 kids look good. I'm sure you could handle a dozen:)

My goodness, he is getting big already. It sounds like the girls are taking good care of him. Really cute outfit as well today, Claire! The plaid blazer is such a fun take on the inspiration photo and it really dresses up a pair of jeans. Love the pop of color from the scarf as well. Enjoy the rest of your week!
