Baby's 1st Birthday



My darling cousin Ashley said, "Hey Tracy, I was thinking maybe for your next blog you could do a mommy and baby first birthday party outfit for both. I am strapped for cash and have no idea what we'll wear."
Because we're cousins, both Ashley and I have inherited a prevalent family trait...the cheap gene. Our grandma had 12 kids and knew a thing or two about being frugal and stretching a dollar. Thus, we all learned the value of a good deal. And a good sense of humor.  :)

After a great trip to Old Navy last night, I decided "shop" there for Ashley's look. Mama and baby can both dress up for under $200. Even better, mama's outfit doubles as office wear after the birthday party, and baby's outfit is warm enough to last many wearings through the winter. (And don't you just love that both of you can wear Mary Jane's? Too cute!) Hope you like it, Ashley!

One Stop Thursday...everything today comes from Old Navy.
For baby:
Plaid Jumper
Lettuce Edge Turtleneck

Tracy, I love it!!! I especially love all the pink! I ordered all but the tights and shoes online. Even better, I was given some barely worn Mary Janes for Harlan almost just like those in a box of hand-me-downs! Still working on the shoes for me...they were out of my size! The cheapster in me just could not pay $6.50 for tights...I shall visit our local Target for those. Thanks again!

I'm so glad you like it! I agree about the tights, you can get them so much cheaper somewhere else. You'll have to take a picture of the two of you so I can do a blog update! Love ya!
