Cute or Convict?

jumpsuit: c/o shein   shoes: target 

It's always a little risky to order something from shein that doesn't have any reviews, but I thought I would take a chance on this jumpsuit, because they are all I want to wear.  And while I do like it, I can't decide if it's approaching a costume for a convict?  It is so comfortable and I love the color and the stripes.  And it has pockets, which is always a win. 

I am doing much more of wearing what makes me happy and what is comfortable, so I think this is probably a win for me!

I hope you have a great weekend! We will be busy celebrating our FIVE year old.  I can not believe she is going to be five.  Time goes so quickly!

Cutting it close

dress: c/o shein   sandals: target 

This dress is just about at my limit for shortness, and I probably could not appropriately bend over to pick up my kids in it. But I think it is super cute and want to wear it the next time I can leave my house without them!  (Plus it is only $15 and comes in a lot of other colors!)  I love the buttons and the cinched waste. 

I've wanted these sandals from Target for awhile and thankfully waited because they were 40% off last month, so less than $15.  I love them! 

In other news I thought I was pretty tan until I saw these pictures and now feel like according to this my legs have yet to see the sunlight.  Bummer.

Prairie days

tank: old navy   skirt: c/o  shein   shoes: target

When I taught third grade we did a whole unit on pioneer days and at the end we visited a museum that simulated life as a pioneer.  Blacksmith, one room school house, a little hospital.  We all had to dress like they would have and I'm pretty sure this skirt would've been completely appropriate.  So should I be concerned that I just got it in year 2018?  Should I also be concerned that I attempted to iron this skirt and it still has wrinkles?  I clearly need a lesson.  

Either way it was $11 and pioneer or not I love it.

Take Two

dress: c/o shein   shoes: target 

Remember this dress that I shared about two weeks ago? I liked it so much I got it in this rust color and may even love this one more!  Maybe because all white feels kind of risky with kids around? Either way, I love them both, and both are in stock now too and under $25 dollars.  

I've been inspired by bloggers who do those wardrobe capsules, where they pick out a small number of clothing and only wear them for a month.  Now not enough to do that, but inspired by ways they rework items in their closets.  Like wear a tank top over a dress, knotting it and making a whole new outfit.  

 I hope you all had a great weekend!

Maybe another time

 dress: c/o shein  

I started writing a post about Addi finishing preschool and how she'll be in Kindergarten in the Fall and I was looking through pictures and started crying and just don't feel up for tears tonight, so maybe another night.  I know all parents deal with sending their kids off to real school and we will all survive, but holy cow I have a lot of emotions about it!  

So instead I'll share this maxi dress that I just got.  The sleeves remind me just a tad of a dress my sister had in the eighties, but floral dresses like this are in, right?  Right?  Either way I love it.  Hope you are having a great start to your week!
