Camouflage Cut-Out Sweater, Black Pony Boots and Prayers

"Thank you, God, for my mommy and daddy... And unicorns,"
Pigtails said as we prayed before bed.
I tried not to laugh, then told her to close her eyes.
"Thank you, God, for not letting bugs crawl in our ears and lay eggs,"
prayed Sparkles.  Then Pigtails jumped back in and added,  
"Oh, and thank you for sushi."

CAMOUFLAGE CUT-OUT SWEATER - Forever 21
GOLD SKIRT - H&M
OPEN TOE BOOTIES - Thrifted

FAIR ISLE SWEATER - Romeo and Juliet via Loehmanns
BLACK PONY BOOTS - Steven by Steve Madden (thrifted)

This camouflage sweater is my newest obsession - not only for the print but for the cut-outs.  I got it at Forever 21.  I decided to pair it with something girly, a $6 gold skirt from H&M and some thrifted open toe heeled booties.  The second outfit is something comfy and casual.  The Romeo & Juliet sweater came from Loehmanns and those amazing boots with pony hair and studded buckles I got with Mary Jo from Trust Your Style when we met up and went on a fun thrifting trip to GW!


Silly prayer warriors in their hats made by Fair Isle

Since Princess Sparkles started elementary school I haven't had a chance to thrift very often, so going with Mary Jo was an extra special treat.  She saw those Steven boots first and lucky for me, we don't wear the same size.  Thank you, God, for fellow bloggers, thrifting... And black pony boots!

I loved the camouflage sweater! The prayer was so nice - and yours too at the end! Haha, yes, I know what it is to go with a friend to a store and she likes everything you like and you wear the same size - argh! So, very nice that you (still) don't wear the same shoe size! You and the kids always look amazing, happy and very positive! denisesplanet com
