For those who know me personally, it’s no secret that my daughter and I along with my mom (my daughter’s grandma, duh, lol) every now and then have matching outfits.
Now before you think, I jumped into this “Mommy and Me” twinning bandwagon, this actually started way way back for me. Like when I was my daughter’s age. (She’s 3) My grandma used to have her dresses made, like literally “made”. Like I am going to the dressmaker, here’s the design I want, now saw it type of “made”. And she would often have some fabric left. So guess what? She would have the dressmaker make me a mini version of the dress she had done. And the “twinning” began.
So now that I have a daughter of my own, why not? It’s fun. She can hate me when she’s older, or laugh, like how me and my grandma do now. After all, it’s all about making memories isn’t it?
I usually get our stuff at Old Navy. They have amazing deals every. day! It’s very budget friendly for 2 and 1/4 people and they have the cutest designs. Here are some of the few I found…
Living the Florida life definitely has it’s perks, tank tops and flip flops in the winter. But in the summer. That heat is disrespectful, it bites! (literally). We ladies still want to look cute even with the humidity, don’t we?!?
While for me, LBDs (little black dresses) is out of the question, I prefer a pop of color in the summer.
I am loving ORANGE this season! Orange you glad that Orange is the new black? Haha, just had to add a pun in there!
I bought this dress from express a month ago for my trip to turks and caicos with the hubs. I LOVE THIS dress it’s so comfy, it’s so soft, and it was just perfect for the T&C weather! (helps that I can always re-wear this in the Florida heat! I picked the papaya (orange basically) color, I easily tan, and I thought it would go well with my skin tone, plus the hubs likes this color on me. So double score. hehe. They come in other colors as well. Click here to see your options!
So, how did i get this romper from Express that costs 70 for a $1.65?
Simple. Coupons and rewards.
If you haven’t already so, sign up for Express rewards, it’s completely free and you use it every time you make a purchase, you earn points for the stuff you already like and buy! for doing a review, you even get points for checking in at an Express store! Once you accumulate enough points, they will send you rewards to use towards a purchase. They will also send you coupons you could use!
Here’s how mine went down
Romper – 69.90 (click here to see it)
2 express rewards I could use towards the romper worth: $30
express coupon: $15 off 30 (the higher amount of your purchase the bigger the discount, they even have 75 off 200)
amount I had to pay? 24.90. plus tax.
Had a gift card from express my husband gave to me, $25 worth.
So I only ended up paying for tax! So even if I did really pay 24.90 for the romper, that is SOOOO much better than paying 69.90 for it! And that, that put me #inmyhappy.
