Oh, Matilda

lake michigan
our side of lake michigan


Before Ivy's library storytime class yesterday morning, I asked if she remembered her teacher's name - to which she scolded me, "She's not a teacher, she's a PERSON who lives in the library!"


GR 017
ruche-y ruche-y arms!

I don't mind - and actually prefer - spending more money on good quality clothes for my kids - things that look too nice to wear to the beach and into the lake, but really they wear and wash so well. Most importantly my kids have got to be able to play and get dirty. 

Oh, btw - did catch her dancing here?

So, you can imagine my happy surprise when I discovered Matilda Jane featured at my favorite daily deal site Zulily a few weeks ago. I must say I was very grateful to the awesome free Zulily iPhone app because it texts an alert when the sales start. You can also preview the next day's sales and set an alarm in case there is something you don't want to miss! (I highly recommend this, especially for deals that you know are going to go fast!)


on ivy for this week's small style...


dress- matilda jane via zulily
pants- catamini

poncho- tea collection (take an extra 20% off sale with code EXTRA20SALE)


[linking up as always with small style at mama loves papa.] 




Win! Zulily has offered a $50 credit giveaway. To be entered to win, be signed up for Zulily and leave a comment letting me know you're a member. 


Additional entries (leave a comment for each)
I'll choose one comment at random late Sunday 10/9. Be sure to link to an email addy so that I can contact if you win.



Congrats to Emma!


P.S. I am not receiving anything from Zulily for posting this giveaway - I am just a big fan and frequent shopper! If you do sign up for Zulily through my link, though, I get a $15 credit when you make your first purchase. (Just like you can when you get others to do the same, and so on!) And the tea collection link is an affiliate as well.

  1. That first one is a gorgeous picture of Ivy and the lake. It sure makes me miss the Great Lakes.
    I totally agree with regard to quality clothing. I don't spend in other areas (i.e. no car, no cable tv) but am happy to fork over a few extra bucks for clothing that holds up to wear and tear and busy kiddos.

  91. I totally agree- I'd rather spend more money on clothes that I love, than buy a bunch of cheap stuff that I don't really like. I've made that mistake before.
