Kimono Top and Girl Band

"We're a girl band,"
Princess Sparkles said as she strummed her toy guitar.
Pigtails, dressed in sunglasses, wings and a serious attitude, 
shook her hips and clapped her hands.
Sparkles pointed to her sister,
"Her name's Leah and my name's Tia."


Monday's Inspiration - Jenna Dewan Tatum

FLOWY KIMONO TOP - Loehmanns, $8
BLACK NUSING TANK TOP - Target
DENIM CUT-OFFS - Paige Premium Denim (Nordstrom Rack)
CUFF, NECKLACES - Heavenly Treasures
BLACK HANDBAG - Isabella Fiore (thrifted), $3.50
BLACK TIE UP WEDGES - Old Navy, $15 (gifted)



After seeing the "Inspiration Monday" outfit from Two Bird's blog, I chose this flowy kimono-like top I bought from Loehmanns for $8 to dress up my nursing tank top.  I wore Paige denim cut offs instead of jeans because it's been so hot here.  The tie up wedges are from Old Navy (thanks to my best friend, Plaid!), the jewelry is from Heavenly Treasures, and the purse is the thrifted Isabella Fiore treasure my mom, Fair Isle, found at the Salvation Army for $3.50!!!


"The Girl Band" featuring Leah and Tia

I've really been into wearing denim cut-offs lately.  Partly because it's almost summer and hot here, but also because I like a little edge with my girly pieces.    Now if I just whip out my harmonica, maybe Princess Sparkles and Pigtails will let me join the girl band!

I wish you had baby feet like I do so we could trade shoes. Oh, and I wish that we lived closer.

this outfit is just great for summer, I like the cut offs instead of the original jeans. Looks a lot cuter, your Kimono top is fabulous too, the accessories are ethnic chic and compliments your outfit perfectly. Very thrifty outfit by the way! The bag is a great find. Haha...your gals look like they are having a fabulous time!

I'm stopping by from Monday Mingle--sorry it took me so long. That black bag is fab and I love the inspiration photo.

Emily said...

Leah and Tia, how adorable! I haven't been on your blog in ages. Congratulations on your baby boy! He is freakin' cute, I scrolled down until I found a picture. You must be such a proud mom. As for this outfit, I have to be honest, I like yours better than the inspiration. It looks better with the shorts.

May the force be with you.
