Sometimes it’s fun to dress up for no reason…


 As a work from home mom, sometimes it’s a miracle if I take a shower, let alone get out of my walking clothes.  Yes, this blog has helped inspire me to into normal clothes more often than not, but I still have those days when 7pm rolls around, I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and think “YIKES!”  Then I’m left to wonder if I even brushed my teeth… :{  Other days, I just feel like putting on some heeled booties and wearing a top that I’ve been “saving for a special occasion” for no real occasion at all.  Sadly, I only put the effort in from the neck down haha.  No shower, no make up, lazy mom top knot.  I did however, brush my teeth 🙂

This is the same park we went to the other the day for Maya’s 3 year pictures.  I love that it’s not really a park.  It’s in the middle of this little neighborhood, but nobody has ever been there when we’ve gone.  Perfect for running around, and nerdy self portraits 😉Blog HM Cream Tunic Goldsign Gray Mayhem Skinny Jeans Frye Lisa Short Stitch Booties-1This was actually sold as a dress.  I may have washed it (dry clean only, WHATEVER!!), and shrunk it a little… Like I would ever have worn it as a dress anyway…Blog HM Cream Tunic Goldsign Gray Mayhem Skinny Jeans Frye Lisa Short Stitch Booties-2 Blog HM Cream Tunic Goldsign Gray Mayhem Skinny Jeans Frye Lisa Short Stitch Booties-3 Blog HM Cream Tunic Goldsign Gray Mayhem Skinny Jeans Frye Lisa Short Stitch Booties-4 Blog HM Cream Tunic Goldsign Gray Mayhem Skinny Jeans Frye Lisa Short Stitch Booties-5 Blog HM Cream Tunic Goldsign Gray Mayhem Skinny Jeans Frye Lisa Short Stitch Booties-6 Blog HM Cream Tunic Goldsign Gray Mayhem Skinny Jeans Frye Lisa Short Stitch Booties-7If Maya had control over what she wore, she would wear this dress and one other one every.single.day.  Now, she knows to ask “Is the purple dress dirty?”  Because I say that all the time in order to get her into something else haha.Blog Hanna Andersson Purple Boho Dress Arizona Jeans Butterfly Boots-1Blog Hanna Andersson Purple Boho Dress Arizona Jeans Butterfly Boots-2Blog Hanna Andersson Purple Boho Dress Arizona Jeans Butterfly Boots-3Blog Hanna Andersson Purple Boho Dress Arizona Jeans Butterfly Boots-4Blog Hanna Andersson Purple Boho Dress Arizona Jeans Butterfly Boots-5Blog Hanna Andersson Purple Boho Dress Arizona Jeans Butterfly Boots-6Blog HM Cream Tunic Goldsign Gray Mayhem Skinny Jeans Frye Lisa Short Stitch Booties--8Blog HM Cream Tunic Goldsign Gray Mayhem Skinny Jeans Frye Lisa Short Stitch Booties--9She could jump into my arms over and over.  “AGAIN!!!”  Which is good, because it took me a while to time these right.  I really wanted one of her mid air, but we’ll try again another day 🙂Blog HM Cream Tunic Goldsign Gray Mayhem Skinny Jeans Frye Lisa Short Stitch Booties--10Love this next one.  I’m so glad she’s such a snuggler!!Blog HM Cream Tunic Goldsign Gray Mayhem Skinny Jeans Frye Lisa Short Stitch Booties--11On me…

Funny story.  My husband had a work event a few weeks ago that happened to be in Seattle for once.  He asked me to take some pictures, and his one request?  “Um, do you think you could wear your hair down?” haha.
