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


PRINTED SKINNY JEANS - Target, $24
GREEN CARDIGAN - Forever 21
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!

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!

I know I always tell you this, but you have the best stories about your girls. Printed skinnies are great because even if you are just wearing them and a t-shirt, it looks like you made an effort. Both pair are cute! Heather

You are the most glamorous mum of young children I know! Your kiddie pictures never fail to make me smile!

I haven't been commenting to much lately but, I have popped by to see how you are doing. The babes look great and are getting so big!
You certainly can style a pair of skinnies! And I totally agree with your opinion on leggings (last post)
I found some fleece lined ones and have been living in them. Under dresses, long sweaters whatever they are just so comfy!

For whatever reason, I've been really into skinny printed/colored jeans lately too. I love your boots! I've had wedge sneakers forever and haven't even worn them since they became popular--what? I should do that . . .

Your daughters crack me up. I love reading their little comments! And I am a mother of three and a big sister and you are both right--we get super tired!

I like both of your skinny jeans outfits, and your kids are adorable and funny as always.

My goodness, they are getting so big! And I love that you mixed up the classic jeans-and-tee combo. The printed jeans are a fun alternative and the wedge sneaker definitely mixes it up too! I'm not sure how I feel about that trend yet, but I'm sure they are pretty darn comfortable compared to normal heels!

I always love those photos of you and your little ones. so cheerful and cool! and printed jeans with tees definitely make sense. such a classy combo in my opinion. especially the second one.
