Stripes, Neon and Getting Rich

"Mommy, I want you to be one of those store ladies. 
The ones who scan things,"
Princess Sparkles said.
I asked her why and she replied,
"Because then you get rich and I want you to get rich."
Yeah, me too...

WHITE JEANS - Flying Monkey (thrifted)
BROWN/GOLD BELT - Michael Kors (thrifted)
GOLD BRACELET - iSanctuary
PURSE - Cynthia Rowley
SHOES - Forever 21

NAVY STRIPED SHIRT - French Connection (thrifted)
BRACELET - Shop With A Mission
NECKLACE - iSanctuary
WEDGES - Payless

Here are a few outfits from the week.  I decided to do a "white outfit" thanks to "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.  But rather than the dress they chose I decided to wear white jeans and pair them with a neon yellow chevron top and my GS Lillian statement necklace.  I also wore my green Target jeans, which I rolled, and added some thrifted navy stripes.

I think I said I was going to wear fun summer dresses for the week.  Well, I didn't do that but I did wear lots of stripes and jeans!  I love my thrifted finds and my Target clothes.  I think even if I was a rich store lady I would still go thrifting and buy stuff on clearance!!!

Wouldn't it be nice to be a scanner and be rich? The kiddos are getting so big! Loving your neon top. Super fun and bright.

The neon stripped shirt looks fun to wear. Ah the gurl loves momma, so be a rich mamma ;)
PS: Is this a coincidence or anything else that I stop over your blog on Mondays only? O.o

Claire, I'm loving both of these outfits! You look so cute doll! I love that neon with white. Fabulous stripes with teal. You just gave me an idea! I hadn't seen that combination. So pretty.

claire, i like your yellow outfit better than the inspiration. fab shoes from payless, and awesome accessories! if i was rich, i'd still buy stuff on clearance and thrift stores too. during college, i didn't get rich when i worked retail. children are growing so tall. what fun shoes your mom made. :)

Claire I think you must be rich from all your insanely great thrift finds! Think of how much you save, haha, enough to keep shopping!

I love that bright neon shirt!


Awww your daughter is so freaking adorable. Well, I assume everyone goes through a retail job at some point in their lives, I bet if and when she does, she'll hate scanning lol. But I do love your jeans, it's hard to believe they are thrifted. I think flared pants are so cool, and I love the necklace as well.

You've got a great blog.. would you like to follow each other?
