Flannel Shirt, iSanctuary Jewelry and A Reader

Princess Sparkles is learning to read.
She slowly sounds out words and can even read an entire book.
The only thing is everytime she says the word "peas" or "but," she laughs. 
Meanwhile, Pigtails wants a pet, more specifically a bunny.
I told her we already gave her a baby brother.

Monday's Inspiration - Mary Kate Olsen

Today's Inspiration Monday from Two Birds is a flannel and skinnies.  I couldn't quite pull off Mary Kate's look so I did my own version with a mullet skirt and this fabulous new iSanctuary necklace I bought from my friend's store, "Share and Do Good."  The necklace and the bracelet are both made by survivors of human trafficking.

Princess Sparkles dresses up with her class for Thanksgiving

I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving (or if you don't live in the US then a nice weekend).  I love the holidays, especially with the kids.  They enjoy it so much which makes me enjoy it that much more.  It's contagious.  Like laughing when someone else thinks "peas" or "but" are hilarious.

Printed Skinny Jeans and Big Sisters

"You'll see when you're a big sister,"
Princess Sparkles told Pigtails.
"When baby is tall but still a baby, like when I'm 7 and you're 5,
you will be tired.  Big sisters are always tired."

SPOTTED SKINNY JEANS - Romeo and Juliet Couture (Loehmanns), $30
PLAID JACKET - Sashimi (hand-me-down)
BROWN BOOTIES - Jessica Simpson (thrifted), $14

GRAY T-SHIRT - Target, $5
WEDGE SNEAKERS - Target, $30

Lately I've been wearing a lot of printed skinny jeans and t-shirts.  Last week I wore some burgundy spotted ones with a plaid jacket, a hand-me-down from my friend, Fierce.  The Jessica Simpson boots were thrifted from GW.  In the second outfit I wore printed jeans and wedged sneakers from Target.  At first I wasn't crazy about the wedge sneaker trend but the more I saw them the more I liked them.  They're just so comfy!

Big sister Sparkles teaches Pigtails and Bucket the piano

I barely have time to get everyone ready in the morning, especially myself, so it's just easy to throw on the jeans and a t-shirt.  I love being a mother of three, but let me tell you, it's even more tiring than being a big sister!

Plaid Leggings and Captain Underpants

"Hello, Captain Underpants,"
Princess Sparkles said to me as we ate dinner.
(Sparkles has been quite interested in this Captain Underpants
after one of her teachers wore it as her costume on Halloween)
I asked why I was Captain Underpants and she said I always show my underpants.
I told her I was wearing leggings and then she said,
"no those are your big, big, humongous underpants."

BROWN BOOTS - White Mountain (thrifted)

Monday's Inspiration

For "Inspiration Monday" I decided to forgo the jeans and wear plaid leggings with an oversized olive sweater.  I also got to premiere these chestnut boots I've been saving.  I found them new at the Goodwill for $15.  They're even real leather!

"Cowgirl" Pigtails

"Swifter" Bucket

I love wearing leggings.  You can find them in all sorts of prints, they always fit well with boots and they're quite inexpensive.  They're also extremely comfy, like running around just in your underwear!
