#ThriftyThursday: A royal adventure

#ThriftyThursday: Princesses and Superheroes – all things glamorous and righteous. I spent the day volunteering as a princess at the Salvation Army, so wearing a summer dress I purchased at my favorite Goodwill store was fitting.

As a Kentucky Derby Festival Princess, my Saturdays entail random adventures that call for “princess-y” fashions. Gap Kids saves the day. While hosting the Princess and Superhero party, my striped cotton dress was conservative, comfy, and cute. It even had pockets for my lipstick – because every princess needs to look on point!

This spring season I have loved t-shirt dresses. They are easy to dress up or down for whatever your adventure calls. Yesterday I did not focus on accessories because of my tiara and sash, but a cool cotton combination is always an easy way to sneak in a chunky necklace and bold earrings.

Whether you are a princess or a superhero, it is a good life…be adventurous!
