Last weekend was a scorcher here in the south and the girls and I had NO desire to go outside.
We decided to be productive while staying cool inside, we cleaned rooms and went through fall and winter clothes. For my youngest going through clothing took over an hour. Aren't hand me downs the greatest thing. For my oldest daughter however it took her about five minutes because this is all she had left from last year.
This sad mismatched selection of clothing.
Her favorite skirt, that is too short for her but I have a plan to make it longer.
A hand me down jacket from me.
A lavender sweater with flowers.
A floral button up that she doesn't love.
A jacket left from her Nancy Drew phase, I think it is going away.
I aqua shrug bought on clearance a few years ago.
Another aqua sweater that might be a little small by the time fall comes.
One pair of jeans.
A fancy purple skirt.
And finally a velvet brown jacket.
Our goal is to find clothes to add to these and end up with a classic teenage wardrobe without spending very much money. We will be doing lots of thrift and consignment store shoping and filling in what we can't find with sale items.
Our budget is $150
with that money we need to buy
jeans 4 or more
dress pants 2 or more
skirts and or dress for church 4-5
tops for all of the bottoms
and a few outfits of comfy sweatsuits
shoes and accessories.
It will be a challenge but we are up for it.
Check back next week to see how we are doing.
Anybody want to join in with us and see what they can find?
