How many pairs of distressed skinny jeans does a girl need…


 Apparently at least one more 🙂

I posted a glimpse on Instagram of one of my latest thrift hauls (actually a different outfit that I have yet to wear!).  Is that something anyone would want to see more of on the blog?  Like how much I score things for, or no?  In any case…this entire outfit cost me less than $20!  Retail would have been more than $250 🙂Blog Talbots Boho top Paige Destroyed Skinny Betula White Birkenstocks-1 Blog Talbots Boho top Paige Destroyed Skinny Betula White Birkenstocks-2The other thing I love about thrifting, is buying brands I may never have bought otherwise.  I don’t think I’ve ever shopped at Talbots, but since scooping up this top I’ve worn it twice in 3 days haha :} Blog Talbots Boho top Paige Destroyed Skinny Betula White Birkenstocks-3So…the upside to this school playground that we’ve been going to pretty much every other night.  There’s usually only a few people there (if any!), so I don’t feel as self conscious setting up the tripod to take pics.  AND…Maya just plays on the playground while I snap a few quick pics of myself…all within eyesight!  Total win.  Then, I can usually lure her over to play in front of the camera for a few of us together… 🙂 Blog Hanna Andersson Orange Halter Dress Stride Rite White Sandals-2 Blog Hanna Andersson Orange Halter Dress Stride Rite White Sandals-3The downside is… that if there are other kids there, she certainly is not in the mood to take pics with me haha.  Not that it’s really a downside.  I LOVE that she run, run, runs here.  Am I the only mom that loves going to school playgrounds more than actual playgrounds because there are no swings or sand pits?  Kind of defeats the point to have Maya go and want to swing the entire time or sit in the sandbox and dump sand over her head over and over (total mean mommy admission!!!)

Anywho!  There was NO getting her in front of the tripod on this night, but the Huz was there (yahoo to that after him being in NYC all week!!!), so he took these next few of us as I was wrangling her to go home 🙂Blog Talbots Boho top Paige Destroyed Skinny Betula White Birkenstocks-4 Blog Talbots Boho top Paige Destroyed Skinny Betula White Birkenstocks-5 Blog Talbots Boho top Paige Destroyed Skinny Betula White Birkenstocks-6Oh magical sun setting light.  How I love you… And that adorable nugget??  TOO CUTE!!  It was a good night…Blog Hanna Andersson Orange Halter Dress Stride Rite White Sandals-1On me…

      Isn’t it the best?! I love the thrill of the hunt, and of course…the prices 😉 You must get a pair! So fun, yet totally addicting! I’ve taken the scissors to way too many pairs of mine and Maya’s! Love your blog too. Thanks for following!
