I Should Be Ashamed


(Shirt (Gymboree), Tights (Walmart), Shoes (Skechers Twinkletoes), Tutu (Popatu from TJMaxx), Hair Ribbons (Walmart)
The 2 little ones had school photos at preschool this week. Yesterday Cutie was SO excited to wear her TUTU! She looked so cute!


When my kids go out in public they are always dressed very nicely. Everything matches...down to the shoes and hairbows. Most of their clothes come from Gymboree and TJMaxx.
But I am here to confess a secret...


The child that does not attend preschool on that day gets in the car like this...


Old playcoat...pajamas...bedhead...cowboy boots. LOL! Sh! Don't tell...

I love dressing my kids...here are a few things I am currently dreaming of from Gymboree...
Did you know Gymboree has a sister store? Yep...it is called Crazy8. They provide the same collection based shopping experience at lower prices! Here's a couple examples I am in love with...


And if you are wondering where the clothes are that I am dreaming of for Manga Dork...well...nothing else will fit in her closet...lol!

Where is your favorite place to shop for your kids?

She looks super cute in her tutu! So funny that your other little one is ready for her 'day off!' LOL! I love that little Paris outfit you have picked out!

Love the tutu! It's almost a pettiskirt but more functional- totally adorable!

I need to check out Crazy 8. I don't shop the super fun places for my girls usually- though I have gotten some great deals at Children's Place.

When the boys were little and they would LET me dress them, they were styling that's for sure. Now they look back and laugh at the hammer pants, the "steps" in their hair cuts. The mullets. The "preppy" stuff I put them in to look nice ALL THE TIME.

Then they get this age, where they want to do their own thing, and I can't do a thing about it. We picked our battles on clothes, as long as they were clean, no holes, etc They were good to go.

Although my oldest still does the whole baggy, hang down and show my ass thing - which I HATE.

JC Penney or Carter's. I LOVE CARTER's! I need to check out the Crazy 8 store. We just got one in the mall.

You are a hoot dressing up your dolls (oops I mean daughters) - LOL! You really go all out in the matching. I never got into the latest fashions with boys -- it's jeans and a t-shirt (no joy in dressing up dolls).

the tutu is adorable and those red cowboy boots? LOVE THEM!

Clogs for kids are just about the cutest things I've ever seen.

I'm sorry you have the blues.

OMG if I could buy all El's clothes at Gymboree I would. =)

I'm mostly a Target fan for El though.

Super cute!! I really really love Gymboree. My girls were little when it first opened and I could not stay out of there - they were also dressed head to toe in gymboree.

Oh my gosh, they look so adorable! I don't have any kids, but I definitely have a weakness for small kids botiques! :)

She still looks cute, even in pjs and cowboy boots. Crazy8? I better share that with my sister. She has the girl we love to dress. Did you see the red patent leather vest at Gymboree? She bought that for her and it's adorable. Love your finds.

Those clothes are sooo cute, I love the Paris shirt and that tutu is too adorable, she looks precious. I don't blame you for letting her stay in the PJ's, my bro did that when my mom took me to school!

Becks said...
