In May, a few days after we arrived in TX, we went shopping at Walmart with Didi, and Lorelei found three dresses she liked. They were $5.88 apiece, and I'll have you know that we got our money's worth considering those dresses were the only three things she wore for two months straight. Here was her routine:
- put on clean dress before bed (she wore them as nightgowns too)
- wake up (but waste no time getting dressed because she was ALREADY dressed)
She has a bright future in time management consulting.
Here are the dresses:
Once I discovered Walmart's kids' clothes were adorable and cheap (I knew this, but I didn't KNOW this, you know?), I didn't stop there.

But later this summer, for some reason, Lorelei has come around again. Thank goodness, because you know how I feel about summer clothes in the fall and winter, and I was beginning to think I would have to ask Walmart to design some fall- and winter-appropriate dresses just for Lorelei. Here's an example of a new-to-Lorelei (but pretty normal for most kids) outfit:
(By the way, Lorelei's "check" [Nike] shorts are from Goodwill--$0.99, y'all. Perfect condition. The Goodwills in Austin are so nice they're like department stores. Soon I'll share a Goodwill project we recently did for Sydney's room.)
Since I'm on a Lorelei kick this post, I'll go ahead and share this series. They cracked me up because their facial expressions were so similar each time:
Happy Friday/Labor Day weekend!
