So, I’m going to see just how long I can make my titles haha. I could have titled this “What I wore on the airplaine”, but that sounds so boring.
I know that I’ve been posting less “adventures” lately, but…let’s be real. It’s super hard to lug a tripod and my camera along on our adventures now that Maya is really adventurous! And it’s been COLD. And we aren’t really that used to the cold, so playing in the upper 30’s with 20+ mph winds has not been too fun.
I’ve been reminded over this past holiday season how much I love to dress up, and put thought into my outfit. I’m thinking that as Maya is in school more, that might be the direction of this blog a few days of the week. Thoughts? Btw…I realized later after I scored these booties on eBay for 90% off that these booties are weatherproof!!! Say, what? Accidental SCORE!!! They were perfect for the airport, because they easily slip on and off, and were actually quite comfortable! Once she saw the neighbor boys out playing, so wasn’t cold at all haha. Can you tell we took these after the sun went down? Notice the Christmas lights behind me… I couldn’t let her run around in short sleeve dress though…Admittedly, I usually buy more than I need when I’m thrifting. It’s so hard to say no to amazing prices on designer stuff!! But…every once in a while I leave something and then think “NO!!”
This jacket was one of them. I had gone into a thrift store after a shoot in a neighborhood that is about 30 minutes from my house. I saw this jacket. LOVED IT. I think it was $15. AT this point, I can’t remember, but for me. As much as I thrift and find amazing things, $15 is too much. But it was AMAZING. SO well made, and purple…Maya’s favorite color at the time. So, I texted my thrifting buddy who lives a few miles away and said “IF…you happen to go, AND if it happens to still be there…I WANT THIS JACKET!” Lo and behold. STILL THERE! Sadly, she has a daughter Maya’s age, so it was especially painful for her to buy it for me, but…I’ve made it up to her 🙂 She wore it all last year, and it still fit this year too! BEST $15 spent ever!! 🙂And these boots??? SO CUTE! And…$4.20!
