You don’t have to spend a ton of money on a cool leather jacket…
I got this vintage leather jacket at Funky Janes for $25!! I LOVE IT! It totally looks like a $500 jacket, yet I know that nobody else is wearing it 🙂Then when I got home from the shoot a few hours later, it was SUNNY! It was a little chilly, so I kept the scarf on that I had thrown on (but forgot to photograph!) as I left. Since I forgot to photograph the before outfit with the scarf, here it is 🙂 Maya’s outfit was all about “This might be the last sunny day we have, I’m going to put the things I love that she’s growing out of on” haha
Am I the only one that gets sad every time their kid moves up a size? It’s quickly replaced by excitement over the new bigger sized clothes, but still…a little mourning goes on 🙂

Super Mom Tip-
I could talk all day long about my love of thrifting. The thrill of the hunt. The excitement over finding things at 90-95% off! You do NOT have to spend a kazillion dollars to look good or even wear designer items. If you get overwhelmed at Thrift stores like Value Village/Goodwill or don’t have the patience for eBay, find a local consignment store. Or not so local. It might be worth a drive to score a vintage leather jacket for $25 🙂 PLUS, if you drop your clothes off there, you get $$ back which means the jacket could be FREE!! ThredUp is also a great online source for both gently used clothing for children and women! Their customer service is amazing, and the quality of clothing is outstanding.
