I was able to get out of the house once this week, to go grocery shopping, ha ha! Ill take any excuse I can to throw together a cute outfit!
For the past year or so, my husband and I have been saving our pennies to buy a home... Which is happening right around the corner! But one thing this does mean, I have not clothes shopped in just about that long! Seriously, I have only bought one shirt here, or one dress there, every great once in a while. If it hadnt been for all of the amazing Poor Pitiful Pearl trades throughout this last year, I probably would have cried, ha ha. I love clothes. I always have. In junior high and high school, I was always the 'odd' dressed girl, but I feel like I was always creative with my wardrobe, some people just didn't understand it. As I have grown older, my fashion has matured a great deal. I no longer wear cut-off sweat pant mini skirts with striped knee highs, combat boots along with crazy black makeup all over my face :) I love how fashion is a thing you grow with, as you grow.
I know I always made my mother so happy when it came time for the new school year and clothes shopping. I 'ONLY' wanted to shop at Goodwill. I did NOT want her to take me to a department store. I pretty much had my mind set against those from an early age. So, while all my friends were spend $60 on one pair of jeans, I got a whole wardrobe for that! And it wasnt anything you would see on anyone else. In a way, I am still very much like that. Although now, I love to incorporate lovely things from places like Target or amazing online shops like Ruche, when I can afford it or allow myself to. This belt below is from Ruche, and its been one of the best $10 ive ever spent, it goes with soooo much and is super comfy!
shirt from Old Navy (really a long tunic, just tucked in)

Okay girls, do I not have the cutest boy ever??? Let's boost his ego a bit with some honesty :)
Bella loves to hang out on the porch while I take photos.
Had to share... I love it when avocados have huge center seeds. I think its really cute, I dont know why.
