Shake, Bam and a Shabby Apple Giveaway

Shake, shake.  Shake, shake.
Bam, bam.  Bam, bam.
I know Bucket is busy "entertaining" himself when I hear that.
Unfortunately I know it's probably with something he shouldn't be playing with.
Like canned food, serving bowls or the girls' toys.
I recently found him with some ibuprofen. 
I don't know why they call the bottles "childproof."
Because with a little shake and a little bam, my 15 month old can open them.

GREEN SWEATER VEST - Made by my mom
YELLOW SANDALS - Cynthia Vincent for Target
BRACELET, EARRINGS - iSanctuary
BELT - Kenneth Cole (thrifted)
JEANS - 1921
 
JACKET, BLACK WEDGES - Old Navy
T-SHIRT - Alternative Apparel (via Anonymous)
STRIPED SKIRT - Target
SUNGLASSES - c/o Firmoo
 

Here are a few outfits from the week.  The other day I was having a "jeans and t-shirt" sort of day.  But not wanting to be boring I decided to throw on a vest.  I went with this asymmetric green one my mom knitted for me.  It kinda looks like seaweed but in a cool way.  The second outfit lacks color but was comfy.  Another t-shirt but this time with stripes and wedges.  I'm linking it up to "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.




Shabby Apple recently offered to do a giveaway for Spinning Threads.  Shabby Apple is an online dress boutique that specializes in vintage and retro dresses.  One lucky reader will get a $50 gift card to pick out a gorgeous vintage dress of their own.  If it was me, I'd choose this fabulous blue tutu (True Love Skirt) or this on-trend black and white striped dress (Mezzanine).

Here's what you have to do to enter:

Like Shabby Apple on Facebook
Follow Spinning Threads via GFC or Bloglovin'
(Extra Entry: Like Spinning Threads on Facebook and leave a separate comment)
Leave a comment telling me what you would get if you win!
 
Yup, it's that easy!  Contest ends May 19th. 

What Bucket looks like when I take away his stuff (i.e. canned food, meds, etc.)

Usually during spring I'm in bright colors and wild patterns but for some reason I've been in a "neutrals" mood lately.  Maybe I need Bucket to give me a shake and a bam to put a little funk back in my fashion or maybe I could go buy me that tutu skirt from Shabby Apple!!!

claire, i like your outfit better than the inspiration! i don't ever think you dress boring. your style is fab, and the vest really does pop, in a great way. great kid pics, and that final bucket photo is priceless. so much for childproof bottles, eh?

loving the vest your mom made you.

Maiken said...

I like your little girl's polka dot ensemble so if you're longing for some colour and spice then why not to try something like that ;)
by the way, that seaweed-looking vest is pretty awesome and that shade of green suits you SO well!

Maiken,

You three look so adorable! Ibuprofen, oh! I guess you are right, kids can open everything, they are so curious (which is good, to be able to learn!), but sometimes dangerous! I have a friend with a 4 year-old daughter, she still opens everything, but now she can understand better what is Ok or not! Anyway, I love stripes, and your sandals are so beautiful too! My favorite picture is the one with your daughter paying, you three are so cute!
