I’ve mentioned before my love of flares. It’s such a nice change from skinny jeans all the time. However, usually they are super long, and I have to wear heels. So…usually I just save them for the occasional date night or girls night out. Well, I thrifted this pair last Friday for $5!!! And…even better they are the perfect length for me to wear flats-SCORE!! Maya said she wanted me to throw her.
Me- “How high?”
M- “Way high up in the sky!!” She’ll have to settle for above my head haha. I swear it still surprises me when I capture these with the self timer. I actually caught a few this time! “Mom, you chase me and try to tickle me!” Ok… 🙂 And then….truth be told. I took these next ones over a month ago. We had tried to catch the sun before it went down, but since we can never leave the house without about 20 delays, we got down to the beach after the sun had set. At 4:30pm mind you 😦 So, I didn’t even bother trying to take picks of me or me with Maya, and let her just run around and have fun. I’ve been dying to blog them, but never got around to it! THEN the other day, Maya decided she wanted to wear this dress again, so I figured I merge the two posts!! 🙂 LOVE her little smile!!! And…she’s off!Right after this one, she took off running again….into the water. Lovely. 😉
As I went to look up this dress for this post, I found out it retails for $84!!! SAY WHAT!?!?!?! I knew when I found it, that it was SUPER well made. The fabric is so thick, yet soft and stretchy. And all those ruffly details?? But…I had NO idea how expensive it was. Kind of regretting letting her wear it to preschool and to play on the beach, BUT…I only paid $1.50 (YES!!!!!), so I guess it really doesn’t matter. One of the many reasons I love thrifting!!
