Brights, Floral Dr. Martens and Last Names

"I'm gonna name her Vicky,"
Princess Sparkles said as she held up a bug she decided to keep as a pet.
"I thought you named her Katy," I said.
"Well her first name is Katy and her last name is Vicky."
Princess Sparkles thought for a sec then...
"I know, her last name is Plant because she eats plants."
"Well is your last name, Spaghetti?" Camouflage asked from the kitchen.
"No.  But your last name should be Spicy Stuff and [Bucket] should be Yogurt!"


PINK/ORANGE DRESS - Carpe Diem
YELLOW CARDIGAN - Gap
EARRINGS - Cynde Daniels
BRACELET - iSanctuary
NECKLACE - M. Haskell
BOOTIES - Forever 21
WHITE DRESS - Target
DENIM VEST - Forever 21
BRACELET - iSanctuary
EARRINGS - Cynde Daniels
NECKLACE - Made by the kids
BOOTIES - Dr. Martens

The bright colored outfit is what I wore for Mother's Day.  The dress is from a boutique in Fullerton and I paired it with the necklace Fair Isle and Henley bought me for Mother's Day.  Since the necklace had yellow in it, I decided to go all out and wear a yellow cardigan.  I wore the boots to offset the girliness.  The white dress, vest and docs I wore to a school performance Princess Sparkles had on Saturday.  Linking it up to "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.

For Mother's Day I told Camo I wanted to spend time shopping with my mom.  So Fair Isle and I went on a "road trip" to our favorite Goodwills.  Although we did eventually eat (after all the GWs closed), Fair Isle and I joked that we'd forgo eating for shopping.  I guess if Sparkles was to give me a last name it'd be Shopping!

Great outfits! I like the bright colors of the first and how you offset the girliness with the boots. Love your denim vest with the second outfit! Some quality time with mom at Goodwill sounds like a great way to spend Mother's Day. :)

LOL Well we have three different last names in our house (my oldest has my maiden name, I have my married name and my younger two have their dad's last names) so it can definitely get confusing. I love when you tell stories about your kids. It reminds me of stories with my kids! I love your floral Doc Martens! And that pretty bright dress is great for shopping!
