Chunky Knits + High Waisted Flares + Clogs


 Life’s been a little crazy lately…. Ok, I feel like it has been for the last few years, but lately…more so!  All that to say.  I don’t have time to think about what I want to wear.  I think about it during the day, and have all these ideas, but in the morning?  I throw on skinny jeans, a striped top, and a leather jacket or sweater.  There’s nothing wrong with that.  Honestly, most days, I’m just happy for my 10 minute shower at the gym!!

But.  I like clothes.  Probably not a shock.  I love how changing what you wear can change your mood.  I love that you can get creative with what you wear, and it can say something about your personality that people may not have expected.  I think people underestimate clothing and how it relates to how it makes you feel.  But maybe that’s just me.

However, if you’ve ever watched a makeover show, you’ll know that it’s not!  But the truth of the matter is.  People lack the time, the money, and the energy or knowledge about what would make them look better and feel better.

Again, one of the many reasons I love thrifting.  You can cheaply buy/try something new, and totally change your mood for the day!  And if you say you don’t have any good thrift stores near  you, then you can easily go online!  Admittedly, you need to try things on at stores to find what styles/brands fit you best, but you can absolutely leave without buying and find things cheaper on eBay, Poshmark, thredUp, or Tradesy.

My entire outfit (as MOST of my outfits) were bought at a discount.

I put my card in, and it only loaded half the pics I took. I tried a few times, and it kept giving me an error. THEN…it wouldn’t even recognize the card! I was SO bummed, because I got some super cute images of Maya with her newly lost two bottom teeth.  WAH WAH!! 😦

 BUT…SO glad it didn’t happen to a client’s images!  So, all in all, it was probably a blessing in disguise, because I now always put two cards in my camera (which I should have been doing all along…

So, honestly…I have been waiting to blog these.  I kept thinking I’d find a way to recover the lost images, but I’m finally letting that go.  For anyone that knows me (which honestly, is two-hi mom and dad!), it was REALLY hard for me to let this go.  But I finally did, so I’m blogging this lone image of Maya.  And also saying good bye to an recipe that I captured on that same card that has been long forgotten (because I rarely write things down and use images to help me remember).  I’m sure it was AMAZING!! 😉

Alas…I leave you with Maya not so happy with a sidways smile…

Could there be more than my corrupted CF card?  Why yes…
Because, at first, she’s ambivilant about pictures.  Or, really…she thinks its funny to make grimacing faces at first.  I’ll admit.  It’s a process with the self timer.  Most times, she doesn’t even realize that I’ve set it up, but sometimes she does, and…pictures.  NO PICTURES!  Hence, the lack of frequency in our images together.  Usually, once I get her playing, she forgets about the camera, but it’s a little harder when it’s on the side walk in front of our house.  As easy as it may be…
