Today was Tillie's second day of Spanish Camp. The weather here is still a little weird, so I thought pants would be a good choice. Can you believe I found these Matilda Jane chambray ruffles at a garage sale for $4! I'd been hoping to make her a pair of chambray ruffles, but couldn't find any chambray fabric I liked locally. They're size 4 and should fit her for a while. The Hotline damsel dress my mom got at a garage sale a couple years ago. It's a 2, but since she's a skinny-minnie it still works as a tunic. Her tan Salt-Water sandals are a favorite as they go with nearly everything.
I just love how sweet she looks in this outfit.
Ted-Ted is wearing one of our favorite tees this season. It's from Carter's, but I feel like it has more of a Gap-ish look. The bonus is that I got it for a steal at Kohl's. His shorts are Gymboree Prepster Pup my mom got for super-cheap during a sale + coupon. It's all layered over a Gap outlet bodysuit from a garage sale. The seersucker Circo shoes are a little matchy-matchy with his shorts, but he's not even 2 yet so it works.
My kids' style is that I like nice quality clothes, but since I'm a stay at home mom, my clothing budget is limited. I really like shopping, so I've transitioned that to scouring garage sales, thrift stores and clearance racks to stretch the budget and still get nice clothes I love. The end result is that they have too much, but a lot of it I paid very little for. And, there are always a few items I just have to splurge for. I have a lot of fun mixing and matching their clothes. I think they usually look pretty cute.
