Unexpected pairings…


 I love pairing things that don’t seem to go together upon first look.

It’s hard to tell by these pictures, but this top is actually made out of a somewhat stiff taffeta like material.  I can totally see it paired with a high waisted full ball gown like skirt and heels!!  Or…distressed mid rise denim and super comfy wedge heels-HA!Blog Zara Striped Cami Citizens of Humanity Carlton Retro High Rise Born Wedge Sandals-1 Blog Zara Striped Cami Citizens of Humanity Carlton Retro High Rise Born Wedge Sandals-2I am attempting to do a closet purge, but instead I keep finding things that I forgot I had-and LOVE!  I bought these wedge sandals 6+ years ago for a trip to Greece.  I wanted something cute to wear, that would also be uber comfortable.  You can always count on Born shoes to fit that description!  I walked all around Greece in these comfortably, and easily ran after Maya all night!Blog Zara Striped Cami Citizens of Humanity Carlton Retro High Rise Born Wedge Sandals-3(Truth-I totally photoshopped out my ginormous bandage from my surgery.  It’s NOT pretty!)Blog Zara Striped Cami Citizens of Humanity Carlton Retro High Rise Born Wedge Sandals-4 Blog Zara Striped Cami Citizens of Humanity Carlton Retro High Rise Born Wedge Sandals-5 The Huz has been out of town since Monday, and won’t be home until Sunday night-let the countdown begin!  He usually travels during the week, but this is the longest he’s been gone for.  Maya has been SO good and helpful to to me all week.  Even helped change my bandage on my back!!  So unbelievably proud of the little girl she is becoming!  In return, we’ve done a bunch of fun stuff.  🙂Blog Zara Striped Cami Citizens of Humanity Carlton Retro High Rise Born Wedge Sandals-6And…Maya just wants to wear pink or purple twirl dresses every.single.day.  It’s probably pretty obvious that I’m not really a pink girl, and only started wearing purple since I met the Huz (it’s his favorite color, and I now see the appeal ;))  So…I try to add a little fun edginess with her shoes whenever I can 🙂 Blog Pink Heart Mignone Dress Floral Link Lace Up Boots-1 Blog Pink Heart Mignone Dress Floral Link Lace Up Boots-2 Blog Pink Heart Mignone Dress Floral Link Lace Up Boots-3 Blog Pink Heart Mignone Dress Floral Link Lace Up Boots-4This next sequence KILLS ME!!  There are actually twice as many as I’m posting, but…that smile!!!  That laughter!!!  It’s so infectious, and I’m soooo lucky I get to see and hear it every day!

I’ve had plenty of the former thoughts, but SO glad that most of my days are the latter…I couldn’t be more proud to be this little ones Mama.
