Stripes, Camouflage and FREE SUNGLASSES!

"I'm gonna be a fireman when I grow up,"
Princess Sparkles informed me as we drove around.
"What are you gonna be, [Pigtails]?"
Princess Sparkles asked her sister.
"Be a fireman too so we can work together."
Pigtails shook her head.
"When I grow up I'm gonna be a pretty girl. With a bow."

RED JEANS - BDG via Urban Outfitters
BLACK T-SHIRT - Alternative Apparel
PLATFORMS - Qupid via Charlotte Russe

SWEATER - Narcisco Rodriguez for Kohl (hand-me-down)
CAGE HEELS - Vince Camuto (thrifted)
SUNGLASSES - c/o Firmoo

Here are a couple outfits from the week.  The first was something inspired by "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.  I decided to wear my $19 BDG red jeans from Urban Outfitters with a striped blazer from the Loft.  To keep it from feeling too conservative I wore platforms and a t-shirt.  The second outfit is something I ran around in.  The sweater is a recent hand-me-down from my friend, Gingham.  And the shoes are Vince Camuto, thrifted new from Goodwill.

Recently, when the company Firmoo asked me to review a pair of sunglasses I was thrilled.  I LOVE SUNGLASSES!!!  I chose these green ones because I liked that they were neutral yet fun.  They also have small details that make them especially fabulous, like the ombre bottom of the frame and the cute little bow.  And right now Firmoo is offering you a FREE PAIR OF SUNGLASSES!  That's right, your first pair is free, (all you have to do is pay for shipping!).  They have a huge selection.  They also have prescription eyeglasses as well.  So hurry, go check out Firmoo and order your free pair.

The thing I love about sunglasses (besides that they look cute) is they're great for hiding things like wrinkles, bags and lack of make-up.  They also make a great headband when you're having a bad hair day.  And I really love these Firmoo sunglasses because although I'm a tired momma of three, they make me feel like a pretty girl (with a bow!).

Girl, you look great...legs for days in those jeans. The kids are getting big.

I missed the link up today..story of my life right now. I love how you flipped it and wore a blazer instead of a striped shirt.

I am running to Firmoo in the morning. LOL

Have a great week.

Those sunnies are fab! Love the color!

Love the glasses. Emma has the same urge to splurge on sunnies. She pares them up with her outfits and then uses them as a hairband when indoors! Really add colors to a plain outfit too.
