  1. Oh this is such a cool thing that you get to do! I am soooo jealous!

  2. Great job! Thrifting for kids really makes sense because they grow so fast.

  4. Amazing job! Also love the college look...its super fun but easy to recreate. I have been on the hunt for some leopard printed skinny jeans :) I'm following you on bloglovin'!


  5. Oh, how adorable! Love the way you styled those cute little kids! Your outfit is great too! Love those printed jeans!

  6. Love this! Great finds (as usual!)

  7. That is such a great idea! I should suggest that to my local news station; some people in the area really could use these suggestions. Great finds.

    I really love your top as well!


  8. I love Rachel's outfit... Is it inappropriate that I feel like I would totally wear that?! :) And I love that you put Moira in wedges. Never to early to start! But my favourite part is your leopard print pants. You would think a print like that would be so hard to wear but in the grey, it seems subtle and way more wearable. Great job!

  9. These kids are too cute! Definitely ready for school. And I love your leopard print pants.

  10. This is such an interesting post!
    You made a good job with those kids!

  11. I especially love the jeans you put on Rachel, but all 3 outfits are lovely! Also loving your outfit:)

    This must have been such a fun project!
