wiww~Design on a Dime

So, yesterday afternoon while running errands I ran into k-mart to see if they possibly had any headbands. I typically get a certain type of headband from Target to put my crochet flowers on. But they have been out for weeks, so I thought, what the heck, I'll try k-mart. I never go to k-mart but it's in the same center as my guilty pleasure togo's (don't get me started on their turkey avocado). 
I ran in and came out an hour later without headbands, but with this outfit! 
k-mart, who knew?
Design on a dime, I tell you. This outfit was so affordable! 

And I love affordable. 

I can not justify spending much on clothes because this is my reality...
While taking these pictures, this little guy could not stand it, he wanted me to be holding him. He is such a mama's boy.  But a boy he is. Dirt under the fingernails, sticky hands, dirty feet, the works. The kid takes two baths a day!  
 
So mom friendly clothes it is and that is o.k. because I would not want it any other way!

top: k-mart (the belt came with the top), jeans: k-mart, shoes: Target, sweater: downeast 
note: the top is pink and navy, and the sweater is navy too but in the photos they look more purple.

There you have it. What I wore Wednesday.
linking up with The Pleated Poppy, Savannah and  Momma Go Round.

p.s. ten more days until this fun boutique!!

  6. I loath Kmart...then we moved and Kmart was within walking distance and being a SAHM sometimes you do what you got to do and that meant walking with kids to Kmart just to feel normal, and if the kids happen to throw a fit while we were there well that would be not be mortifying because really thats what you'd expect at Kmart...I was ALWAYS surprised with clothing things I could find. CRAZY. Who knew...well, now, a whole lot of people. Quick! Lets go to Kmart before somebody snatchs up those bargins! :0)
