Embroidered Jeans, Joe's Erin Open Toe Booties and a "Cough"

"Daddy, I'm coughing all the time, I need to go to the dentist,"
Pigtails said to Camouflage very seriously.
"Well you weren't coughing before I told you to go to bed,"
Camouflage replied, shuffling her back to her room.
She stopped to look at him,"Yes I was."
Then she added two fake coughs.
*Cough* *Cough*

EMBROIDERED JEANS - BDG via Urban Outfitters
T-SHIRT - Alternative Apparel via Anonymous
MILITARY JACKET - Nordstrom
ANNIVERSARY RING - c/o Anjolee
BRACELETS - iSanctuary
RED WEDGES - Target 

CROCHET DRESS - Jovovich Hawk for Target
BRACELET - iSanctuary
ERIN BOOTIES - Joe's Jeans
 
The embroidered jeans I recently picked up at Urban Outfitters on the sale racks.  I was excited that they were only $20 and were ankle length.  I went with a plain white tee and added red wedges I got on clearance from Target.  The jacket is an oldie but goodie.  The dress is another oldie but goodie I picked up a few years back from the Jovovich Hawk collection at Target.  I paired it with some fun open toe booties I got at Loehmanns (on clearance of course).  I'm linking the first outfit up with "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.


The Pirate Princess in her signature rainbow leggings pre-"cough."

Jeans and t-shirts are one of my favorite go-to outfits.  And with the endless choices - printed, colorful, embroidered, skinny, high waist - you can really add a creative touch.  In fact, I could really use a cute pair of striped skinny jeans.  *Cough* *Cough*

I love a good tee, can never seem to have enough (mine just seem to disappear into thin air - how does this happen I wonder?) Would love to get together with you soon Claire! Friday I've got a shoot happening but hopefully we can try again in the next few weeks, maybe when I'm in LA? Let me know what a good day is for you :)
