After two years of jersey knits and elastic waistbands, I’m ready to put a little groove back into my closet. Of course, I must be frugal & particular when it comes to purchases. It certainly takes some creativity to dress a family of seven in style, without going broke! This may or may not become a feature of the blog. You tell me. I have no idea if people want to see photos of our outfits and read about where we shop. But after receiving some sweet encouragement from Jess (Boho Baby Bump) today, I decided to go with it at least once.
This is what I like to call a Sunday school teacher’s dream skirt.
I picked up a couple last week at a thrift store, unknowingly hitting the jackpot – all clothing was 50% off that day. This little number ran me about two bucks. Thanks to the muumuu effect, I can actually stay somewhat comfortable in this ridiculous Carolina humidity!
A few items of note, related to this very easy skirt-to-dress: No matter your size/shape, a natural waistline is always more flattering. Cinch it up, girls. Nursing in public is made simple & discreet with easy access. Throw a burpcloth over it! Dress it down with flats & no jewelry. Dress it up with wedges & bangles.
So yeah… that’s what I wore today, as we ran around town celebrating a NINE YEAR-OLD BOY NAMED AVERY!
