The other day I cleaned out my jean drawer. 
I swear, I had jeans I did not even know I had. 
Jeans that I questioned if they were ever in style. 
Pre-baby, post baby and even a few maternity jeans still in the mix (I thought I got rid of all of those)!
By the time I was done, my drawer was almost empty...
which only meant one thing...
It was time to go shopping!!
And off I went on a mini shopping spree to TJ Maxx where I can get so much more for my money. It was there that I found this above outfit. 
Pink Jeans $19.99
Top: $12.99
A mom friendly, super comfortable, fun outfit. 

 I also found some swimming suits and cover ups! I always go Summer shopping too late in the season (like when it's actually Summer) and all the good finds are gone. So, I am on the hunt now for some new Summer clothes. Since I have lost weight, swim suit shopping has actually been a little more fun, for the first time in YEARS! 
All of these (slimming) suits were over $100 originally, but the TJ Maxx price ranged from $19.99-$34.99
I fell in love with this blue "Guess" dress, but did not end up getting it. I even went back a second time to think about it, but I had to be realistic. It is not "pick up the wheelchair and put it in the back of the van" friendly. If only it was a few inches longer, it would have been perfect!  That is how I judge my clothes these days. 
This "Free People" dress, originally $188 was priced for $34.99 and I FELL in love with it! I love the Spanish style cross stitched flowers and the fit was so comfortable. Even though I will probably only use it as a swim suit cover up, I had to have it. I loved it that much (it's really a fun dress in real life, the pictures do not do it justice). 
Thank you TJ Maxx for the fun and great priced items!!
