Layering + Combat Boots

 Blog StyleMint Jacket Aqua Sweater Hudson ShoeMint Boots-1 Blog StyleMint Jacket Aqua Sweater Hudson ShoeMint Boots-2 Blog StyleMint Jacket Aqua Sweater Hudson ShoeMint Boots-3I was kind of on the fence when I got this jacket from StyleMint.  I got it during their Black Friday Sale, so it was 50% off (point in it’s favor).  When it came, it was kind of stiff and boxy.  I threw it in the dryer (it says hand wash cold, but THAT is not happening!)  That softened it up a bit, and now I really like it.  I love that it shows the layers of what you are wearing underneath! Blog StyleMint Jacket Aqua Sweater Hudson ShoeMint Boots-4Um….”big hair don’t care”??  Ok, I kind of care, wow :} Blog StyleMint Jacket Aqua Sweater Hudson ShoeMint Boots-5I’ve ordered a bunch of stuff off StyleMint (of course when they have big sales!), but I hadn’t ever bought any shoes from ShoeMint.  Well…another sale came up, so I snagged these boots for $44!  They are real leather and SO soft and comfortable.  I was very pleasantly surprised!  Even walked around the neighborhood with Maya first time wearing them and still comfy!  They still have some left, and I agree with the reviewers, size down a half size.  Love the studded details and the zippers up the back! Blog StyleMint Jacket Aqua Sweater Hudson ShoeMint Boots-6 Blog StyleMint Jacket Aqua Sweater Hudson ShoeMint Boots-7Yeah, her coat lasted all of 2.3 seconds.  NW girl at heart…who needs a coat?? Blog StyleMint Jacket Aqua Sweater Hudson ShoeMint Boots-8Coated baby pants??!!!  Died when I saw these on Zulily’s close out sale!  May have gotten a few pairs…they were $5.50 and I had grandparent Christmas $$ to spend!

Fringe + Distressed Jeans + Thrift Store Score Shoes

 Blog StyleMint Vest Current Elliott Tanino Crisci-1 Blog StyleMint Vest Current Elliott Tanino Crisci-2 I had an almost embarrassingly large haul at the thrift store on Sunday.  It was an additional 50% off everything, and there was so much good stuff!!  I mainly loaded Maya up, but snagged a few things for me too.  One of which was these shoes.  LOVE THEM.  And the best part?  They were $4, but when I googled them for this post, I found out they retailed for over $300!!  SCORE! Blog StyleMint Vest Current Elliott Tanino Crisci-3 Blog StyleMint Vest Current Elliott Tanino Crisci-4 Blog StyleMint Vest Current Elliott Tanino Crisci-5 Blog StyleMint Vest Current Elliott Tanino Crisci-6I bought these jeans for Maya with the thought that I would make them into cut offs for the summer.  They are a capri length, and I didn’t think I’d like them.  Then…I kind of did.  Plus, they show off the perfectly worn in Converse that I scored for $.99! 🙂 Blog StyleMint Vest Current Elliott Tanino Crisci-7 Blog StyleMint Vest Current Elliott Tanino Crisci-8I love how her shadow looks like it’s touching her face 🙂 Blog StyleMint Vest Current Elliott Tanino Crisci-9 Blog StyleMint Vest Current Elliott Tanino Crisci-10
