Striped tops are fairly easy to come by at the thrift store but I wasn't sure if I'd be able to find one that was loose fitting yet still somewhat flattering. I really love this Style & Co top that I found at Goodwill Northfield. It's made of a sweatshirt material (right up my alley!) and it has some nice detail along the waist, neck and sleeves. Plus it's loose in the waist area which is a requirement for my clothes nowadays.
The jeans were not rippsed and torn when I purchased them so I did a little DIY action on these to rough 'em up. Full tutorial coming later in the week!
I can't hold a stylish bag on one arm and an 80 pound baby carrier on the other arm, so rather than finding a bag similar to the one in the original picture, I went more practical with a cross-body bag.
And per usual a child or two wanted to get in on the photo action.
Baby B was NOT happy about the photoshoot...
...so he put an end to it:
But let's not end on spit up. Here's the outfit one more time side by side with the inspiration outfit. Shirt, jeans, purse and shoes for just $11.72!
