Leather Jacket + Sparkly Top + Patchwork Denim + Metallic Booties…an unusual party mix.


Originally taken 3/6/2020

Words taken from Instagram on the day I posted some of these there…

Maya joined in with the “Spring outfit, but winterize it” challenge!

Of course she picked a party dress, but she said she was ok with jeans underneath for warmth! 😂 She’s so obsessed with these wedges!! She’s 8!! Yet, already wants high heels! NO THANK YOU! Soooo not ready!!! 🙈

We came out of quarantine tonight (more on that later #coronavirus ) to brave an empty beach park… I put all my gear on plastic, had wipes and hand sanitizer…such is life in Seattle right now. Especially if you have people you love that have compromised health issues. Again..more on that later.

Right now, I just need some fun and fashion in my life, so we did that!

This is probably my last “Winterize a Spring Outfit” post, but you can post whenever you want with #DitElleGetInspired

It’s been helping ME, so honestly…I’m still doing it!

Adding on to this…we actually took Maya out of school a week and a half before the schools actually closed.  We saw the writing on the wall, and decided to quarantine early.  It wasn’t easy.  The decision was met with A LOT of skepticism by friends.

“Well, we will see you in a few weeks when all this dies down!”

I wish…

I wrote this on Instagram a few days later with a flashback picture….

We are on day 13 of #selfisolation, and I’m not going to lie to you… It hasn’t been easy. 😭
And by self isolation, let me be clear. Maya and I haven’t left the house/been within 6 feet (ok a few times closer by accident) to ANYONE besides the Huz in that time.
‼️😳‼️
I’ve had a lot of breakdowns.
#CoronavirusSeattle #FlattenTheCurve 
Admittedly, I was frustrated that we were the only ones here in that position-we pulled Maya out of school/all activities before anyone else… (my husband has been following this and correctly projecting where we would be for over a month, and honestly…I was in denial for a while and freaked out by it!!) 
BUT… We are sadly, not alone anymore.

I wish he was wrong…

I’ve had a few weeks to process all of this before some of you. It was NOT a happy few weeks. I was homeschooling Maya before everyone else. There are no words to describe how AMAZING she has been through all of this!!

SHE has been MY ROCK! #letterstomiscmaya 
I have been wavering about what to post about this, but… just posting this for now.

We CAN get through this. 
It IS a time for us to bond as a family.

If that is ONE thing we do…let’s do that.

The reason I take these….the way she looks at me. Hoping to remind her that we did have fun, and it wasn’t always rules and homework…
