Studded Tank, Cut up Tee and an F-Bomber

"Stop using the F-word!"
Princess Sparkles shouted in a busy restaurant.
"Shhhh!" I said, completely horrified.
"Mommy, Pigtails keeps saying fart."
I knew that, but I don't think everyone else did.


STUDDED NAVY TANK - Thrifted
GRAY KIMONO CARDI - Thrifted
BLEACHED DENIM CUT-OFFS - Express, $15
BLUE PRINTED WEDGES - Old Navy, $14
NECKLACE - Betsey Johnson


 
It's been hot and I can't seem to get myself to wear much else besides tanks and cut-offs.  The tank and cardi were thrifted by Fair Isle and I got everything else on clearance, even the necklace!  Lately my new obsession is cutting up t-shirts.  I buy them and cut off the sleeves.  I'm a huge fan of Alternative Apparel but recently the Target tees have been on sale for $5 (they now make crew neck too!), so I've been buying those! 
 
One of my Target tees masterpieces (oh, and $1 store earrings!!!)
 
The girls smiling for a pose after I bribed them... sigh.
(their "hairbands" are from my cut up t-shirt)

Fierce posing F-bombers
 
Being a mom of three, especially a 6-month old, means it's important to wear comfy clothes I don't care too much about.  Tees and tanks are perfect for that, especially when they're only $5.  Because no one likes getting stuff on their nice clothes.  It'll make 'em wanna drop an F-bomb.  (I was talking about the word fart, sillies!)

Your stories about the little ones never fail to make me laugh. It's those little moments that'll become favorite memories later. And I really love that chunky gray cardigan. It looks so cozy and warm. I can totally see that being a staple piece for fall! And I'm even more impressed that it's thrifted. Hope you guys have a great weekend!

The stories you tell about the kids are always so funny. Never a dull moment when you have kids, huh?

gosh, where do you find all those amazing shoes from?? I think I have already asked that but I still keep wondering because this is another pair of awesomeness! and the whole outfit looks so summery that it makes me a bit sad because our summer has left the building for good this year.
