Stripes and Bandages

"Close one."
Pigtails said as she flashed her dimpled smile after falling down.
My middle child runs into walls, tumbles off chairs, hits her head on tables.
She always has bruises, bumps and scrapes.
Sometimes I wish she had a tad more fear.
But at least she always picks herself up and continues on her way.

YELLOW SKINNY JEANS - Fire Colored Denim Skinny Leg Jeans
GREEN AND WHITE STRIPED TANK - American Eagle
WHITE CORDOUROY JACKET - Rubbish
NECKLACE, RING, EARRINGS - Cynde Daniels
SARAH STRIPE WEDGE - Payless Shoes



I'm finishing off "Super Stripes Week," the fashion challenge from Megan Mae Daily and Casual Chic Kiki with a striped green tank and my new striped wedges.  I had seen some wedges like this for $75 and wanted them.  Then I found the Payless ones that were on sale for $20!  I had to snatch them up.  They even have some cute dark pink ones online.  The yellow skinny jeans I got from Nordstrom Rack (not Target, can you believe it?).

Pigtails models her stripes and bandaged chin
I'm obviously obsessed with skinny jeans.  These ones were actually the first pair I bought (this year, at least), but I will say I have to be really careful what panties I wear.  Today I wore polka dot ones and I realized I could totally see them through my jeans.  Luckily I caught it before I left.  Phew.  Close one.

love your new wedges and those happy yellow pants as well. btw, your little one reminds me a bit of myself.. I have a habit to fall down the stairs and I don't know why this happens.. and it happens for an example in my own house when I don't wear heels or anything. strange :D

HOW do you make yellow trousers look soo good!!!!!?!?!?
I adore those stripy shoes! I remember having some stripy wedges I LOVED when I was 16- they were from Miss Selfridge!

Callie said...

What a brave little girl. It's inspiring that she has so much oomph and bravery. I wish I still had that fearlessness as I did as kid.

Really adore this outfit as well, Claire! Those yellow jeans fit you like a glove. And pairing them with the stripes is perfect. Loved seeing your outfits during this week's challenge!
