I am very excited that this is my one hundredth post which also happens to coincide with the fact that I have 100 official readers at the same time. Thank you so much! I wanted to wear a very special dress but it was just too darn hot today. Luckily for me while thrifting today I found this incredible black hat for $2 that sort of made my outfit a bit more extraordinary. We opted to spend today perusing thrift stores mostly for household items. I am determined to make our house more beautiful this summer as we are planning on living here for 3 more years. I am so enjoying spending more time with Bea now that school is out. Her entire outfit is thrifted of course. I have been finding her so many cool gingham outfits for summer. I wish these pants fit me they are so cute. She is looking so grown up lately.
pants and top: thrift town, sandals: thrifted, shades: bows and arrows
After thrifting we went to play and take pictures at a park.
 I've had the striped shirt for almost 10 years and I have never gotten tired of wearing it. Unfortunately I think it is going to fall apart on me soon. I love the flats too but they are also falling apart.
shirt: I don't remember but it was probably from the mall, flats: vintage gift, shorts: crimson & clover, hat: thrifted
Beatrix found these gorgeous white shoes that made her outfit that much cooler.
When the group of sketchy meth-heads finally left and stopped sitting on the play equipment Bea had a lot of fun on the static-prone slide.
I am so glad I decided to start a style blog. I would like think of this blog as a lifestyle blog as I do want to write about other things besides fashion. However I love clothes and blogging about it has improved my wardrobe, and since I rarely buy an item that is more than $5 I am not in financial ruin as a result. The style blogging community is full of such wonderful creative geniuses and I really feel that I finally have a creative outlet for my burgeoning artistic side without compromising my ethics.
Today one of my outfits was featured on Amanda's blog, The Upside of Wonder, in the looks of the week. Amanda has such a darling blog and etsy store. Thank you!

  7. You two are the cutest little duo ever! I love that she's got the giant sunglasses goin' too :)
    And that top on you is so interesting. Looks versatile and glam and comfy all at the same time. A hard look to achieve, but you've nailed it!


  8. You both look pretty pretty pretty! :) That hat is perfect :)

  9. Congratulations!

    I'm digging your sunhat. I've been keeping my eye out for one so because I always forget to reapply sunscreen on my face.

  10. Congratulation on 100 posts! i love this outfit. it's a great mix of classy yet modern. Your daughter is so cute too as always. Have a great week :)

  11. Bea totally wins the "I am model, hear me roar" contest between the two of you today. The shots of her by the tree and on the climby chain thing kill me.
    So freakin' cute!

  12. My , you looking stunning. I know I tell you this all the time. You are a natural, and Bea takes after her Momma!
    I want this outfit, including the handbag!

  13. Congratulations on 100 posts and followers! I love all of Bea's gingham outfits! Your striped top is lovely! Ugh that's annoying. Playgrounds are for kids to enjoy themselves, not for meth-heads to loiter about.

  14. I want Bea's outfit! You both look so adorabe: you a 21st century Audrey Hepburn,and Beatrice looking cooler than school in her big shades and awesome gingham/plaid combo.

    Congrats on your 100th post and 100 follower. I"ve no doubt they'll be many more of both to come.

  15. Yay! Congrats for 100 posts! Bea looks so cute with those glasses.

    Amazing outfit. You look very chic. A very 50's look.

    Yes, you´re right, growing your hair out is a good peactise in patience, but would never want to miss my hair, so just keep on and then some day you´ll have it :)
    many greetings.

  24. The hat really does top off your outfit perfectly and Bea looks so 60's mod in those big sunnies! Congrats on the "100" milestones :)
