One of my favorite things about thrifting is that there are always tons of special vintage pieces to find.  This jacket, even though it’s a little big, has such a fun pattern and mix of colors on it…it was begging for me to take it home.

It might be a bit too much for some people, but I love the uniqueness of this jacket.  I also love the fact that I don’t see other people walking around wearing the same thing as me.

mommy and daughter style!

cute kid!

I always figured that I had a few years – 5 at least – before this one started raiding my closet for things to wear.

Nope.

Not only did she find some random headband I had from back in 2000, she also found my new scarf.  Sigh.

That’s ok though.  She looks cute in both.  And at least she looks appropriate for her age.  Lord help me once she becomes a teenager…

On me: t-shirt, bullet jewelry – c/o 9th & Elm // button down – thrifted // heels – Nine West

On Julia:  t-shirt, leggings – Target // jean jacket – Children’s Place // colorblock infinity scarf – c/o 9th & Elm

High-Low Skirt – Refashion #3

09 May 2012 Permalink

If you know me, you can probably guess that I got this skirt from the thrift store. And since I already own a few midi length skirts (and rarely wear them!  A skirt that hits mid calf is not the most flattering for me)…so rather than add another to the group, I decided to try the high-low trend.  Seriously…I love this cut!  It’s so fun!  This hem work was super simple to do.  Looking for the how-to?  Check out this amazing blog!

Next post I’m sharing one more refashion for the week.  Did you miss the others?  See them here and here!
