Kids Fashion on a budget!

 I am a mommy of 4, dressing four little ones and keeping up with the current trends for them can be pricey. Over the years I've learned some ways to save on money when it comes to shopping for my children's clothing, shoes and accessories. Im here to share some of those tips with you.. so lets get started!

1. Shop department store clearance racks
You can find some really good deals, I usually only buy from these racks when I shop at department stores
2. Accept Freebies
Take advantage of the offer
3. Yards Sales
I have great success at finding more baby and toddler clothes at yard sales but I sometimes get lucky with the older kids clothes. 
4. Pass it down 
I pass my oldest sons clothes that are in good condition and no longer fit down to my younger son, same goes with my oldest daughter, my youngest gets her good conditioned clothing 
5. Shop at consignment stores
I love these store. I frequently shop at these places I always find great pieces; accessories, shoes and clothing at great prices. Selling old clothes and getting credit is always a great way to save money as well!
6. Ask for clothes birthday/christmas
When asked toys or clothes.. I always say clothes :) 
My kids have enough toys anyway haha


Shirt: $4 from Twice as nice
Leggings: $5 Jc Penny
Boots: $30 Target 
(boots were a splurge)

Shirt: $3.98 from Target
Shorts: $7.00  Crazy 8
Hat: $2.00 Ross

My top 3 Favorite Fall Trends!

So fall is here and that means leather jackets and new beauty trends! 
Theres lots of fun fall trends that Im loving this year and I want to share my top 10. 

In no particular order..

Ankle Boots

The ankle boot is always a fall essential!
There are so many new and wantable options to choose from, I had to put this in my top 10. 
My wardrobe suggestion: 
My favorite look with these boots have to be Skinny jeans, simple shirt and a vintage blazer!




Neck Muffs and Scarves 


You can never go wrong with a pretty scarf to add some color and coziness to your fall wardrobe. 

So many different lengths, colors, styles available.. the possibilities are endless!


Bold Plum Lips 


This color may seem challenging for most.. but with the right eyeshadow and quiet cheeks you may just like the bolder lips. 
Give it a try!
