Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:

Halloween Costume: Where’s Waldo (for her)

Last-minute Halloween party? The dreaded “costume required” work day? Or, headed to a social event where you’re not quite sure everyone will actually dress up? Never fear. I’ve come up with whole list of costumes that are totally festive, but not in that “Hey everybody, look at me!” kind of way. You know what I mean.
Introverts unite.

Where’s Waldo Costume

Where’s Waldo is perfect for any of those awkward Halloween social events. Just normal enough that you’ll be totally comfortable, but recognizable enough that you get full points for dressing up.
Better yet? Most people can find most of these things right in their own closet.

However, if you don’t happen to own a red stripe shirt or beanie, I’ve got you covered there, too. It’s super cheap to pull this outfit together online, and have it delivered to you in two days or less.

Christmas Card Family pictures – what to wear

Our annual family photos are coming up quickly in just a few weeks – and I have been putting off the decision of what to wear. ¬†I normally have a vision and this time…I just don’t. ¬†Which is your favorite wardrobe theme?

Back to school for boys – on a budget

UPDATE: Find my updated Back to school wardrobe for boys here and here.  Since this is an older post and continues to get a lot of Pinterest traffic,  I do my best to link to similar items from this set, below. Thanks for stopping by!
Little Dub is going to be in kindergarten this year. ¬†He’ll be going full days, every day. ¬†I have to admit I’m a little nervous for him – it will be a huge change, but one that I think will be good for him. ¬†He will be wearing a uniform this year which is¬†pretty uninspiring fashion-wise, but I was pretty happy when I scored his full wardrobe during the Old Navy uniform sale for only around $110!
Even though Dub will be in uniform, I had fun laying out a back to school wardrobe for boys.  My goal was to put together a minimum of 10 outfits for $150.  I failed Р mostly because the pants alone accounted for around $60 of the budget.  However, if you chose a less expensive brand for the pants and denim this set would be much closer to $150.

Back to school wardrobe for girls, on a budget


I can’t believe it. ¬†Sweet Eve will be starting preschool this year. ¬†Even though I sent Dub to preschool two years ago with not a lot of angst, this one is different. ¬†My shy, sensitive girl will be going out into the world on her own, and my protective instinct tells me not to let her go! ¬†But, I know she’s also ready to make friends, crafts, and all the things she sees her big brother do. ¬†So now I’m distracting myself with the back to school process, buying supplies and…a super cute wardrobe.

 

Here’s how I envision Eve’s preschool wardrobe – that’s 14 pieces/10 outfits for $150*. ¬†I’d say that’s doing pretty well. ¬†What are you back to school wardrobe shopping tips?
