Flannel Shirt, Animal Print Skirt and a Dirty Car

"People are looking at me in the car,"
Princess Sparkles said proudly, wearing a green dress and her hair in braids.
"They probably think I'm a princess."
I didn't want to tell her that people can't see into our car... It's too dirty.


ANIMAL PRINT SKIRT - H&M (thrifted), $3.50
FLANNEL SHIRT - ARTINE via Anonymous (gifted)
PURSE - Cynthia Rowley (thrifted), $9
BOOTIES - Madden Girl (thrifted), $10

I wore this last week.  My mom, Fair Isle, thrifted the animal print H&M skirt for me and I paired it with a layered flannel shirt I got from Anonymous.  The booties are Madden Girl and the purse is Cynthia Rowley, both also thrifted from GW.

I love throwing on a flannel shirt, it always gives an outfit a little edge.  Whether you're a princess in a dress or a mommy in cut-offs and a tee that needs to wash her car, it's the perfect go-to piece!

The pattern mixing is so fun! The plaid and animal print really give the outfit an edge. And the little ones are adorable as always. I'm glad that Princess Sparkles is rocking those adorable braids. Even if the windows are too dirty for anyone to see her. So cute!

Princess Sparkles is quickly becoming my favorite character in literature, even if she is riding in a dirty chariot at the moment. Love your leopard skirt! I still can't get enough animal print these days! Happy weekend Claire!

Haha! Princess Sparkles is definitely a diva ... and when the paparazzi start following her, she'll make sure her car isn't dirty enough that they can't peep in and catch her in her glamour ;)
