Blue Stripes, Blue Tie Dye and A Break

"Give us back our mommy back!!!  Waaaahhh!!!"
Pigtails wailed at Camouflage while he got her ready for bed.
I had been busy two nights in a row and Pigtails wasn't happy about it.
But I sure was.  I needed that little break :)

STRIPED SHORTS - Lamb (thrifted)
BURNOUT TEE - Alternative Apparel (via Loehmanns)
OPEN TOE BOOTIES - Joe's Jeans (via Loehmanns)
FEDORA - Eugenia Kim for Target
NECKLACE - iSanctuary (via {Share})
TIE DYE LEGGINGS - Forever 21, $9.80
BURNOUT VEST - Alternative Apparel
LEATHER/WOOD BANGLES - Raven & Lily (via {Share})
CHEVRON NECKLACE - iSanctuary (via {Share})

Here are a few outfits from the week.  I must've been feeling "blue" because I wore blue striped shorts and those blue tie dye leggings.  The shorts are Lamb and I thrifted them at Goodwill.  I'm pretty sure they were new.  The leggings I got at Forever 21.  They're just so fun and inexpensive.  In fact, I bought 3 pairs -- some celestial ones and floral ones too! 

Happier times: Pigtails wears a "unicorn horn" at Seaside Lagoon.

I've been looking back on my last few outfits and feel like I've been awfully boring.  Not sure if it's the weather, the pictures (now that the kids are in them I have to pick the ones they look best in!), or if I'm just plain old boring.  Either way, I think I better change it up this week and start wearing more of my fun summer dresses!!!

Maiken said...

dresses sound good so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing some. but when it comes to your photos I just have to say those are always full of fun emotions and uniqueness. and I always like it how you layer your outfits. this time I especially dig the second look since those booties and leggings are just perfect together.
