ONE LAST WEAR

since moving ten days ago i have cleaned out everyones closets so much that i realized we gotta go little kid shopping again. luna has grown out all her shoes, she only has vans and gold mary janes that still fit her... i just hate paying full price for things she will only wear a couple months. am i just stingy or do we all feel like that? anyway.. onto a funner topic. today luna wore this cute little vintage dress one more time... and these little moccasins that never really stayed on her feet to begin with. we went on a really fun play date with a sweet girl i met through instagram. i have met a couple mama's through blogging and instagram and as weird as it may seem to people who don't use these types of medias, its pretty natural to me. we have followed each other for a while and interact through there and email and instagram, blogs, facebook and even twitter can be so personal sometimes that you really do feel like you know these people. but its even better when you actually meet in person, then it just solidifies your friendship and the connection to these people. my kids had a lot of fun playing tag and playing in their cardboard house. i am so happy to have another mom friend that is so sweet and easy going. she even made me a pie with the apples from her tree. that was so thoughtful (and delicious!). being a mom of two in a city where i don't know anybody can get lonely... i just gotta remind myself to get in the car and just drive. there's a whole world out there and there is fun to be had. 
dress: little reader vintage. shoes: minnetonka moccasins, from san diego farmers market.

Such a cute little outfit! She's such a cutie! I think I've maybe bought five pair of shoes at retail price for all three of my kids EVER! All their shoes are thrifted!

She is so cute. She just warms my heart! I'm so bummed the summer is over and my free time is so limited now. We need to get together soon.

Oh, she's so lovely. I love her name. And I hardly ever pay full price for much of anything for my kiddos. Secondhand is the way to go! I also love your comments about meeting mamas on Instagram. That's so cool!

(Love, Sarah who found you via Small Style :)

Oh, sweet Luna girl! I love her outfit and that hair? She seriously has the most gorgeous hair ever!

Paying full price kills!! Even when shopping for myself. Luna is so gorgeous and her hair!!!! My gosh, so pretty. I'm so glad you've met nice Mamas and have actually met up. I have the hardest time taking that extra step and then end up sorta lonely. Why!!!?!? Have fun shopping. I wonder where the good spots are near you?

Oh boy! The mocs are adorable! I really dig them. You've already read about my little shoe pickle, I really wish that Stella would add a little variation in her shoe wardrobe. Mocs would be on high rotation, let me tell you!!
