If I had a Girl...

I have three boys.

Three boys who like to wear Ohio State jerseys, fleece sweatpants, bathing suit shorts (in the middle of winter), hooded sweatshirts, super hero t-shirts, and their favorite...

No shirts.

Ohhhh what fun it would be to shop for a girl. All the bright colors, the ruffle details, the mini versions of trendy women's clothes (skinny jeans!), the patterns, the tiny embelishments and details -- so much outfit styling fun to be had!

And this mama of three boys deserves to have some shopping fun!

In partnership with Goodwill of Cleveland and East Central Ohio, I went to their Shaker Heights store and experienced what thrift shopping would be like if I had a girl... 








The cuteness!! That blue handmade bird skirt, those gray Baby Gap skinny jeans, that pink Polo dress, annnnd those floral Gymboree shorts! If I had a girl... we'd need to build a few more closets in our house.

But we can leave the hammer in the toolbox,cause it's nothin' but boys around here! So, I put all those girl clothes back on the rack (for anyone who wants to go snatch them up!) and left with my usual gear... a t-shirt and jeans.

    1. Hi Christine - Nice to meet a fellow Cleveland/Akron thrifter :) The Village Discount is GREAT for clothes/purses/shoes. After I shop there I always leave thinking "I need to give myself more time when I come here." As in EIGHT HOURS! They always have soooo much stuff. Goodwill's are great -- I NEVER leave empty handed :)

    1. Thanks Alison!! I live on the eastside so I tend to shop at most of the thrift stores in this area. I've been to the Goodwill in Middleburg Heights and was super impressed with how bright, clean and organized the store was. I only had about twnety minutes to shop and easily found a bunch of great stuff. My friend Dina (Dinasdays.com) swears by the Goodwill in North Olmsted so you should def, check that one out! Next time I have the day to myself I'll have to do a west side thrift crawl :)

    2. I knew you were on the East side so you probably stick to the places over there... what are your favorites? Maybe one day I'll made a trip over (haha it shouldn't feel like a 'trip' to cross over, but it does). I meant the N Olmstead Goodwill - I don't know why I said westlake? oops... I usually find something while I'm there, but not always a ton - obvs thrifting is very hit or miss. I am just in love with those girly outfits - especially that handmade skirt!

  6. Those are very cute - now that I have my one and only grandson - I know what you mean! I used to buy the cutest things for my daughter but the grandson prefers his own skin to anything else - no clothes, just skin............and honestly, all the farting and laughing! What is up with that? I kept asking where he learned to laugh at something like that until finally my husband told me that boys naturally find things like that funny so no one had taught him bad manners........geez.......:)
