My favorite denim…


I honestly cannot remember how or when I came across DL1961 Denim.  Looking back, I remember wearing them when I was pregnant with Maya because the fabric was perfectly stretchy and SO comfy.  Obviously, that was over 3 years ago, and I now have 10+ pairs (I can’t help myself, they’re that good!!).   What I do know, is that they are hands down my favorite denim.  I’ve talked about the amazing 360 degree stretch a number of times on this blog, and how perfect they are for active moms.  Really, they are good for anyone who wants to look better and feel like you’re still wearing your yoga pants haha.  I actually wore them for my very first blog post-that was weird to look back on!!

All this to say, I literally could not believe my eyes when I got an email asking if I’d be interested in doing a Mother/Daughter collaboration with them!!  Like…mouth hanging open, and I reread the email about 10 times before I convinced myself it wasn’t spam :}.  Everything that they wanted to show, is exactly why I wanted to do this blog.  That there are comfy cute clothes that let you play with your kids and still look good.

They just came out with a line for kids this summer that not only has 4-way stretch that is great for playing/climbing/jumping, but it’s also anti-bacterial, odor-resistant fabric-WHAT??!  And if that wasn’t amazing enough, theirs are about 40% less than other designer denim for kids-only slightly more than chain store toddler denim!

So…in an effort to step up my mom game a little, I did my hair, actually put make up on, put a liiiiittle more thought into what we wore, and went to one of my favorite parks.  All of which (besides the hair and make up :)) are totally within the realm of daily activities for us!

The weather here is still a bit bipolar.  Raining one minute, sunny the next, windy and cold soon thereafter.  Big scarves are the perfect in between accessory.  They keep you warm, but not too warm!1 1 blog Vintage Brown Plaid Scarf Autumn Cashmere Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Sam Edelman Petty Suede Booties-14c2I wish you could feel how soft and comfortable this fabric is!  This particular pair “The Emma in Bloom” is softer than any other pair I have.  Feels almost like a stretch silk denim. 1 Blog Vintage Brown Plaid Scarf Autumn Cashmere Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Sam Edelman Petty Suede Booties-2The faux front pockets make it so you don’t have that annoying pocket lump.  And really, who puts anything in their front pocket?? 1 Blog Vintage Brown Plaid Scarf Autumn Cashmere Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Sam Edelman Petty Suede Booties-3I seriously took more pics of my arse in this post than ever before.  BUTT (haha ;)) they really do flatter the backside!!  And, who couldn’t use that?! 1as Vintage Brown Plaid Scarf Autumn Cashmere Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Sam Edelman Petty Suede Booties-15c 1 Blog Vintage Brown Plaid Scarf Autumn Cashmere Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Sam Edelman Petty Suede Booties-5I mean…can you sit like this comfortably in many other jeans?  Fyi, Maya’s off to the side eating her apple 😉1a1 Vintage Brown Plaid Scarf Autumn Cashmere Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Sam Edelman Petty Suede Booties-17cAnd…playing with her dolls that I couldn’t manage to get out of her hands for half these shots.  Keeping it real over here 😉 1 Blog Circo brown faux leather Jacket Gap Pink Top DL1961 Harper Minogue Osh Kosh Leopard Booties-1This was so fun for me as a photographer.  I usually only set the tripod up in one maybe 2 situations, get a few shots, and then move on to taking pics of Maya or just put the camera away and play.  I tried to get a little more variety this time and shoot shots that I would want to shoot if I were only the photographer vs also the subject.2 Vintage Brown Plaid Scarf Autumn Cashmere Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Sam Edelman Petty Suede Booties-1Love, love, LOVE these next three.  It’s so us.  She loves to be cuddled, and I LOVE TO CUDDLE HER!

Keeping it Real…
So, about 10 minutes into shooting an entire field trip of kids came up to where we were and were learning about the park/pine cones/who knows what.   They were literally right where I was standing in the first shot, so….I just flipped the camera around to get the ones of me and Maya.  Yes, I was embarrassed for all of about 2 minutes, and then I figured-what the heck.  I am NOT wasting a non rainy day, on which I actually did my hair and make up haha.  So, the show went on!
Here’s a picture I took with my phone 🙂

      Thank you so much Amy!! 🙂 And, I know!! Thankfully, I will most likely never see them again. Although, I did see them later in the morning too. One of the kids yelled “Hi photographer lady!!” Maya was like “Hi kids!!!” haha 🙂

      I know, right?!! They are so comfy AND cute! These are the “putty” ones. 🙂 Would totally recommend them! With…the minor exception that they do show dirt/aren’t so good in the winter if you are in rain/snow. Other than that… haha. 🙂

      Thanks for checking in!
