Lucas snapped this shot of us yesterday, just before we headed out the door to storytime at the library. There's nothing particularly thrifty about my cozy mom-ster get-up (just old conventionally purchased stuff) except for the hoodie, but as I'm sure is quite obvious, I'm not really the point in this post...
... and neither is Elmo, though it kinda looks as though he thinks he might be. No, no Clover is the star of the show here, along with her adorable vintage dress, of course. Soft red corduroy with quilted detailing (blue w/ teeny white polka dots)... oh, how I wish I had one in my size.
I did a lot of thrifting for her back when I was pregnant after we found out she was going to be a girl (I'm sure you're shocked) and this is one of those items that's just been waiting in the closet for her to grow up. Well, it's day has come and this was her first time wearing it.
Also, as a bonus for the Clover fans out there, I thought I'd throw in these pics that I took when I dropped her off at The Farm this morning:
Today was the much-anticipated Teddy Bear Pajama Pancake Party! All the kids came in their PJ's and brought a stuffed animal from home. When I left they had just made capes for their animals (I've never seen ballet kitty look so ready to go fight crime) and were gearing up to make pancakes with all the fixin's, lucky!
On a side note, while Clover still looks a-DORA-ble in her synthetic cartoon-y nightie (Thanks Mom!)...
Whatever happened to the sweet lil' flannel nightgowns of yore? They are near impossible to find these days.
You know, like the ones I used to wear when I was a kid, back in the day, when I could be found wielding my CCOUS (candy cane of unusual size, that is) on Christmas morning.
Ha! We got those things every year and there's a picture of my younger sister somewhere with the thing shoved entirely into her mouth, it's classic.
