Faux Fall

I was looking at my little collection of fall denim today and had a pleasant realization- I love getting a good deal! I've only spent around $60 for five pair of jeans that would've cost over $700 retail. They're all great quality and beautiful to wear but the real moral of the story is that I will never be able to buy a pair of full-price J Brand jeans now that I got an amazing pair at the thrift store for $3.95. It just won't happen.
The weather this week has been near ninety degrees- where did fall go? My sisters, Miles, and I made the best of this summer- I hate even typing that out- weather by heading to the beach. We loaded the stroller with the diaper bag, water bottles, and Cheerios but quickly regretted that decision when we tried to navigate the soft sand with what clearly is not an all-terrain stroller. Krystal held Miles while Krystine and I carried the stroller to the hard-packed sand close to the water. Quite a workout! Once we were at the shore, the girls collected sand dollars while I tried to convince Miles that it was okay for his feet to get wet. We had a great time!
Beautiful Pismo Beach
I love this photo of my sisters and me even though it's not the best quality!

My sweet baby

I love finding a great deal at a thrift store! All my premium denim comes from Goodwill, and I have amazing denim too!

You got those five pairs of jeans for 60 bucks??? Wow I am so impressed!

Kera said...

I love me a bargain too! I really need to get into the whole thrifting scene. I do it for my daughter but not so much for myself. That needs to change!

Loving your photos at the beach--and your son is precious! He has gorgeous eyes :) How old is he? My daughter just turned 1 and looks to be the around the same age him.

Added myself as your newest follower--would love for you to stop by!

It looks like y'all had so much fun! Are you in California (like I am?) our Autumn in Bakersfield has SORT of arrived, even though this week the temps are up in the high 80's again. Great bargain hunting, btw and so glad to visit again from the Naptime Review hop!!

@ Daryl: I think you're thinking of Splash Cafe! Their clam chowder is the best. I actually just wrote recently about eating there with Miles- it's so great to live near such fantastic eateries!

Beautiful pictures! I live in Savannah, Ga and it gets pretty warm here too in the fall. Warm enough for the beach. CRAZY! I think the coldest it got last winner was maybe 60 degrees. We had a pretty mild one. Found you at Naptime Review's Operation Fabulous. Now following you through GFC.

Crazy fall weather! Glad you got to enjoy the shore on more time :) carrying a stroller over sand is definitely a workout!! And I love the photo of you holding Miles looking out into the ocean with the shadow cast behind you. Lastly, you remind me to check out a thrift store for colored denim!!
