Tribal Print, Tattoos & Shabby Apple Giveaway

"More tatts!"
Pigtails exclaimed to Camouflage.
My 2-year old is obsessed with tattoos.
She loves putting them up and down her arms.
They give her pink-dress-clad-self a little edge!

TRIBAL PRINT SKIRT - Sunny Leigh (thrifted)
WHITE VEST - Loehmanns
CUFF, NECKLACE - Heavenly Treasures

Today's "Inspiration Monday" look from Two Birds is Eva Mendes.  I decided to wear a tribal print skirt I thrifted from GW with a red nursing tank and a white vest.  I wore this to the Heavenly Treasures Tea Party I attended over the weekend.  I brought Bucket as my date, so I needed to be able to feed him easily.  I decided to mix prints and wore some floral print heels.  I can't wait to show you all what I got from Heavenly Treasures in my next post!

Pigtails shows off her new tatts!
