Faux Fur Vests + Hunter Boots…summer in Seattle.


 We got so spoiled with an amazing May and June.  The sun was shining more than it wasn’t, and we kind of forgot what the “norm” was… Now that it’s July, we are all expecting super warm sunny days!  And then, the last few days, I’ve had to dig out some winter wear!

Not that I’m complaining.  I kind of like the break in the weather.  I bought this faux fur vest off eBay for $16 back in April, and I didn’t think I’d get a chance to wear it for a while.  I honestly wasn’t sure I’d have the nerve to wear it at atll… I broke it out for the 4th of July, and then turned around and wore it again the next day for this little outing.  It’s so fun!!  Oddly, it kind of goes with everything, and Maya likes to snuggle up to it, so extra bonus!

So, it was back to the self timer, which meant me running back and forth like an idiot.  THANKFULLY the beach was pretty empty!Blog Joie Faux Fur Vest Joes Jeans Tunic Goldsign Gray Hunters-4 Blog Hanna Andersson Striped Top GapKids Mini Skinny Rain Boots-6 Blog Hanna Andersson Striped Top GapKids Mini Skinny Rain Boots-7Blog Hanna Andersson Striped Top GapKids Mini Skinny Rain Boots-5 Blog Lincoln Park Low Tide-8Blog Joie Faux Fur Vest Joes Jeans Tunic Goldsign Gray Hunters-9 Blog Joie Faux Fur Vest Joes Jeans Tunic Goldsign Gray Hunters-10Then it started getting a little warmer…Blog Joes Jeans Tunic Goldsign Gray Hunters-11 haha.  This totally cracks me up.  Again….SO glad there weren’t very many people here.

I set up the camera behind Maya, hit the shutter, and then ran out in front to push on her feet.  Love that she’s looking back at the camera!Blog Joes Jeans Tunic Goldsign Gray Hunters-12Maya could literally spend the entire time swinging if I let her.  Honestly, in my more honest bad mommy moments, I usually try and go to parks that don’t have swings.  She won’t run around and play if they are there.

But…the joy?  Hard to say no to that face!!Blog Hanna Andersson Striped Top GapKids Mini Skinny Rain Boots-13 Blog Hanna Andersson Striped Top GapKids Mini Skinny Rain Boots-14This face is so her.  Trying REALLY hard not to smile 😉 Blog Hanna Andersson Striped Top GapKids Mini Skinny Rain Boots-15 Although, this is even MORE her….
