I got the name of this blog post from this hilarious scene from the office:
This morning my poor 6 month old, Anna, was not feeling well. I didn’t want to leave the house because I wanted her to rest well in her bed and not out and about. Poor thing slept for 3.5 hours this morning (on top of her 13.5 hours of sleep she had last night). So….. Ella and I did a fashion show. She didn’t quite understand exactly how it worked, but I made it seem so fun!
The first outfit, I told her she was so pretty and she kept saying “I’m very pretty, mommy.” I let her jump on my bed to make it more fun and tried capturing some pics of her high jumps! I got the red sweater at the consignment sale last weekend that I talked about in my previous post for $3 and it’s from baby gap! Can you believe it?!?!?!?!
Next, we got to pretend it was winter time and she was very cold! This is her $8 winter coat from Old Navy. WAY too cute to pass up. It is a size 2T (yes, Ella is VERY tiny), but it can fit her again next year and then my sweet sweet Anna after that. Here is a similar one on sale for $35.
I guess we were on the jacket fix, so here is a genuine kids oshkosh coat that I picked up for $4. This is also a little big, but will definitely continue to fit!
The next outfit, she by far had the most fun with! Ella got to pretend we were going out in the snow! Hopefully we will see some snow this year because I got her this great snow outfit for $5 and these adorable boots for $2.
Here is a close up of the $2 boots.
Now do you see why I love consignment sales?! My kids can get everything they need for a fraction of the price and I get an amazing feeling when I get such good deals on cute stuff!
