Adding Edge to a Preppy Look…


My mood totally changes with how I want to dress…boho, edgy, rock, grunge…

The one look I’m not that comfortable in is preppy. I feel totally out of place. ๐Ÿ™ˆ BUT…add a studded belt, and some funky cut out platforms, and I feel ok. ๐Ÿคฃ

This might also be in the running for Thanksgiving! And…both of our entire outfits are thrifted or fromย Ebayย ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿค‘

Also, to keep this post extra disjointed and random ๐Ÿ˜‚ Iโ€™m super thankful for a week off with this sweet nugget. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ I may be having to squeeze work in here and there, but getting to hang with her all day is pretty awesome.

Some pics we took from the other day’s AMAZING golden hour โœจ๐Ÿ’ซ (at 3:30 ๐Ÿ˜‚)ย  Mom…spread your arms out wide like you’re flying… I KNEW what she meant, but…I mean.ย  I had to.Me once again not realizing where I need to be and dancing out of the frame…

OR…creative crop?!This face…

BUT…that light!!!
As the sun went down, I switched angles…

That golden light!!!

And…Maya off playing with my phone that she found in my bag ;} Maya is actually wearing boys jeans.ย  I am not afraid to buy from the boys section when thrifting!ย  Roll them up, and they are super cute and comfy boyfriend jeans! LOOOOOVE this next one! A glimpse into the future tween and teen years… BUT THEN… My same goofy girl that just wants to run in for a hug! and I want to eat her up.So….I took a picture of Maya and then my camera went wonky.ย  It would take a picture, but wouldn’t show me what it took.

Now…I have a very nice camera (not bragging, it’s my job, and it was a gift from my parents), so when it goes wonky and won’t take pics, I freak out!

But…in my test shots, it took this.ย  I didn’t have it on manual, so…weird.

YET…I LOVE IT!

And, love it even more, because my camera is back to normal!!ย  NO idea if I inadvertently hit a button but…PHEW!

On me…

Sweater- 7 FAM (eBay, similar here)
Top- Calypso St Barths (eBay, similar here)
Shoes- Summit by White Mountain “Brody” (thrifted for $3.75!)
On Maya…
Jacket- Bernardo (thrifted, but similar here)
Sweatshirt- Crewcuts by J Crew (thrifted, but similar here)
Jeans- Hudson Kids (thrifted, but similar here)
Keeping it Real…
Trying soooooo hard to keep a straight face ๐Ÿ™‚
And failing ๐Ÿ™‚ She loooooves to play with my phone. It’s actually fun for me to go back and look at all the pictures and videos she’s taken on my phone!ย  I complain about it and tell her NOT to…but…I secretly like it later.
๐Ÿ™‚
The trigger on the top of my camera fell off, so she was like “Uh oh…no more pictures!”
๐Ÿ˜‰
(all pictures taken with a shutter release and tripod, except ones of Maya :))
