The poses do not tell you how excited I was about this dress!
Fabulous charcoal dress: The Gap Maternity- originally $59.99, but clearanced and Superbowl discounted down to $11! I was going to throw my yellow cardi on over it, but the temps are rising again here in Florida, so I went without the color pop.
Necklace: My pearl necklace that I finally fixed after little hands ripped it apart
Bracelet: Thrift store find- I bought it to wear at our wedding (I didn't get an up-close photo... someday!)
We had a great weekend, though Mass behavior left a little to be desired. This pregnant momma has a hard time with the stand up, sit down portion of Mass. I run out of breath really easily for some reason during Mass, especially when I am holding a squirmy child. I really wanted to wear some heels today. Alas, I could not make myself do it!
Saturday I got some time to myself to run some errands sans kids. It was fabulous, but I was once again disappointed when I went to fill the gaps in my daughter's wardrobe. Have a look:
The left side of the photo are things that annoyed me, and the right side are things that I purchased.
First of all, the shirts at The Children's Place for little girls upset me. Every single shirt for little girls had glitter on it. Most of what was in stock was one of 5 shades of pink, and the sleeves are all 1/2 the length of a normal t-shirt. Why? Because little girls all want sparkles on their chests and nothing on their bare arms in the spring? I found some really great tops for her at Target. The sleeves were three times the length of the ones at The Children's Place, they only had one shade of pink per style of shirt, and there were at least five different styles from which to choose.
Next we have the shorts. In stores, The Children's Place had every last pair of shorts rolled up so that the hemline was longer on the inside. The material was really thin also. However, they had jean skorts, so I did buy one of those for her but seriously? I just do not understand what they think they are marketing here. Both my kids like to play and run and move, not just my son.
If I had any kind of design talent or sewing talent, I would jump on this business opp, but alas, I do not.
Maybe I just like using the word 'alas.' Time to go check out some other outfits while I improve my vocabulary and finish figuring out how I will prepare for Lent!
