Patriotic Outfit and a Moustache

"I can't have one until I have a moustache, right mommy?"
Princess Sparkles said when she noticed me having an "adult" drink.
Sparkles associates being grown-up with having a moustache.

STRIPED TANK - Alternative Apparel (via Loehmanns), $16
RED JEANS - BDG (Urban Outfitters), $19
BLACK CARDIGAN - Motherhood Maternity, $15
BRACELET, EARRINGS, NECKLACE - Jewelry by Cynde Daniels



In honor of the Olympics, I decided to post this outfit.  The red jeans are from Urban Outfitters.  They are so comfy and stretchy (and were on sale for $19).  They are skinny in the thigh but bootcut at the bottom.  I've been buying a lot of Alternative Apparel tops lately.  They make my favorite t-shirts.

I've been in a very fashionably patriotic mood lately.  Whether it's my stars and stripes cut-offs or my red jeans and blue striped tank.  As I get older, I really appreciate the country I live in.  I also appreciate the ladies who do my threading.  Because no matter how old I get, I plan to never have a moustache.

:) yes i cant believe we've known each other a year :):) Those jeans are greta, i like the fact that they arent 'skinny' jeans, i dont really get then...well i may be jealous of anyone that can actually get a leg in them tbh...

Carly said...

TOTALLY agree...alternative makes the MOST comfortable casual clothing...and it was a nice score at 16 dollars:)
Love this look...
Hope you are well and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Hot mama! I am loving these colors on you, patriotism suits you! My husband is a 4th of July baby, and in the military--I swear I dream in red, white, and blue!

And Sparkles is too adorable, as always.

Megan Mae said...

Fabulous pants! I actually saw a very similar pair while shopping last night. Interesting to see the cut of jeans changing again. Love the shoes!

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

I've got to try threading! I've heard wonderful things about it. I love your red jeans and print top Claire. And that is too funny about your little one. HaHaHa Love the picture of her faux mustache. You look great!

Your outfit is so cute Claire! I was wearing red white and blue over the weekend too--must be the Olympics in the air.

p.s. You will have to share your threaders info with me, I am looking for someone good :) And looks like Sparkles is going to need one too to get that cotton candy beard off!

lovely color combo, I love the top, how the diagonal stripes lead the eyes to the red pants. I like your new hair color too, very summery....and nice tan on your shoulders too. The candy beard is so hilarious!
