Thrifting with my girl.

Last week I went thrifting with my mom and my little girl. It was a birthday present for me. So fun. We wandered around Hawthorne in Portland. I found a couple of really cute outfits (and, shoes) for cheap. I’ll be sure to share with all of you next week! So, normally it’s a little hard to shop with Ruari. You know… being a grumpy/meltdown toddler and all. BUT, she was was amazing on this trip. She was chatty and happy and enjoying everything! I love that I can share my love of thrifting with her! I’m still smiling thinking of how much fun we had. P.S. How grown up does my girl look? Wow. She looks so old! And, adorable.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

    I wish I could thrift with my kids…it is so hard to shop with kids around, but you look like you do it so well! And can I just say I love the dirty face in the last pic? My kids have the ever-dirty faces, so it's nice to see that someone else doesn't incessantly wipe her child's face either!

    Adorable! I have such great memories of going to Goodwill and Salvation Army looking for treasures with my mom. How fun for you to be able to share your love of thrift stores with your little girl. Love the picture of the type writer.

    I LOVE thrifting! Belle isn't quite good enough yet – and I have to keep her heavily restrained in her stroller – but I can't wait to get her to love it just as much!
