Kate Young for Target Blazer, Suede Maxi Skirt and Some Cleaning

"[Pigtails] cleaned the room all by herself,"
Princess Sparkles exclaimed.
"And I paid her money!!!"
She said as she handed her excited little sister a nickel.
"Tomorrow I'm gonna have her do lots more chores."
That sounds good to me!

BLACK CROP BLAZER - Kate Young for Target
BOYFRIEND JEANS - American Eagle
EARRINGS - gift exchange from Polly of Polly's Boudoir
BRACELET - J Crew (gifted)
SPINNING THREADS T-SHIRTS (on Pigtails & Sparkles) - c/o

BLACK SUEDE MAXI SKIRT - Thrifted (Thanks, Mom!)
WRAP BRACELET, PURSE - Heavenly Treasures
TURQUOISE EARRINGS - Vintage from my mom
AQUA WEDGES - Target (thrifted)

Here are some recent outfits.  The striped tank is from Foreign Exchange.  It buttons in back (Sparkles: "You're wearing your shirt backwards", Camouflage: "You're out!  Foul!").  The blazer is Kate Young for Target which I found on clearance.  The second outfit is a thrifted suede skirt with thrifted wedges.  I was in a "tribal" mood.  I'm linking both of these with "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.  The first for the stripes and denim, the second for the maxi skirt!

I also wanted to thank TShirtPrinting.Org for hooking my girls up with Spinning Threads shirts.  Recently I won a printed tee from Mary Jo's blog "Trust Your Style" and when they contacted me I asked about buying an additional shirt so each of my girls could have one and they offered to do it for free!  They do all sorts of t-shirt printing so if you're in need of some then go check 'em out!

A printed tee is definitely a closet staple.  It's comfy and a fun way to show off some personality.  Because although I love getting dressed up in skirts and a blazer, when I'm at home I'm probably cleaning and wearing a t-shirt and pajama pants.

Love the brown top and skirt outfit! You always look so chic! ANd definitely agree about printed tees. I might add "free college/high school club t-shirts" to that too, haha.

I love Target. I don't like their designer series, but you look perfect in that blazer. Love that the kids are always doing random stuff while you take your photos. Reminds me of The Dudes.

Haha I used to bribe my younger sisters to do my chores for candy. So funny. I love both these looks! That blazer is super cute and sounds like it was a steal too! Also I love that second outfit, the top is beautiful and the shoes are so perfect with the skirt and such a nice pop of color! I love that your cute kiddos pose with you :) Love the spinning threads tees!

Uhm, I can't handle all of this "cuteness!" You and the kids are just precious. I really like that blazer. I missed that entire designer line when it came out. I was in Target this weekend and someone must have returned one of the dresses b/c I snagged it off of clearance. I will have to keep my eye out for the blazer though.
