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!

Favorite summer dress

dress: c/o shein    shoes: target

I think this is my favorite item from shein in a long time!  It is the perfect summer dress and is so comfortable.  I love that it has a liner underneath too so it isn't see through, and that the back is elastic so a little extra stretchy!  And it's only $24! 

Also I just bought these shoes from Target.  The ones that I think every fashion blogger has some form of.  I've wanted them since they cam out but got them for 40% off last week.  Definitely worth it to wait till they are on sale as they were only $20! 

What is your favorite thing you've bought for summer?

Short people problems

 dress: c/o shein

I love maxi dresses, but they are often way too long on me.  And while I do know how to sew, and feel like I could figure out how to hem them, I have zero desire to do that.  I love that I can just knot the bottom of dresses like this, and then I'm not tripping over them.  This dress is so comfy, I want it in different colors and it'd be perfect to wear all summer long.  Plus it's only $16!
