Webster for Target and a Real Mommy

"Are you my real mommy?"
Princess Sparkles asked me while we were shopping.
I looked at her dumbfounded.  She caught me off guard... Again.
I heard a woman nearby crack up.
She told me her daughters used to call her stepmother.  Like Cinderella.
I smiled and told Sparkles,
"Yes, I'm your real mommy. I am not a fake mommy."
She flashed a smile, "Oh mommy, I know."

ORANGE CUT-OFFS - Forever 21, $12.50 (find 'em here)
TRAPEZE TANK - Webster for Target (thrifted), $5 (find it here)
CREAM CARDIGAN, Old Navy
CUFF - Heavenly Treasures
STRAPPY WEDGES - Old Navy, $13


Here is my casual Friday outfit.  To be honest, my entire week tends to be casual lately.  I'm obsessed with Forever 21 cut-offs because, well, they're only $12.50 and for that price you could almost buy one in every color (don't worry, Camo, I didn't).  The Webster tank I first saw on clearance at Target in a different print but immediately returned it after I found this one at the thrift store.  Gotta love GW!!! 

Princess Sparkles and her "real" mommy

I really do appreciate Target's designer brands (especially when I can pick them up for less at the GW near my mom's house!).  It allows us regular peeps to have real designer pieces!

I think I need to get to Forever 21 to pick up some of those shorts! I have that top in the other print, and I love how soft and swingy it it. I'll have to style it with jeanshorts next!

Ahh, your daughter is so cute! What a funny thing to ask - so adorable. Kids always say the strangest, most memorable things.

Great thrift find! Very cool print, and loving your take on casual. Definitely keeping it classy, even with the cut-offs. Great talent to have, classing up casual fare.

Forever 21's the greatest. You should get some shorts in every color, haha - ignore finances, flow free with fashion ;)
