“Wear Something Colorful”
❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
Not going to lie…I wasn’t feeling this one. I am really not a “colorful” person…
🙈
BUT, I gave it a shot with these super fun pants (that I had NO idea were this unflattering with this sweater 😳 I destroyed most of the evidence-you’re welcome) and this pop of color with my bag.
💙
Who remembers using PURSES?? It’s been soooo long!
😭😂
Maya doesn’t have much color in her wardrobe either, but this jacket was super fun and so cuddly!
💙💙💙
Truth be told, this shoot was a bit of a bust… My remote trigger stopped working, so we took all these with a 10 second timer. For those of you that have seen Maya on video…she doesn’t like to stand still. 😏 SO…there were a lot of outtakes. I had to include some at the end, because if I can’t laugh at us…
🤷🏼‍♀️🤣🙈
Oh well. As I always say…We only need ONE!!
🙏🏻💃

Bodysuits + Highwaisted Denim + Metallic Sandals = NIGHT OUT! Even if we don’t go out….

Pictures originally taken 8/3/2020  (playing catch up!)
Words written on Instagram on that day
White top + denim
💫✨
No matter the combination…
🙌🏻
It can be dressed up…dressed down…
💃
It fits every occasion and stands the test of time!!
🙌🏻
Classic, in my opinion!! I sometimes wish I was more adventurous with color and print, but….I usually stick to classics.
🤍🤍🤍
Do you agree? Or are you more of the I want to try all the things and see if they fit?? I’m mildly jealous if you are!!

Lowback Black Bodysuit + High Waisted Culottes + Clogs

Pictures originally taken 7/25/2020 (playing catch up!)
Words written on Instagram on that day…
A few random things…
🤔
I always like to dress up a little bit on Friday nights. Makes me feel a little more “normal”…whatever THAT is!
💃🙃
I wore a very similar outfit last Friday. Sadly, I got my other bodysuit stuck in my zipper. None of us could get it out, so I ended up ripping my bodysuit and pulling the zipper pull completely OFF!
😭😭😭
I then spent about 4-5 hours this week watching you tube videos and trying to figure out how to reattach the zipper. H kept walking by and saying “You know…we could take that to a tailor…”
Am I the only one that spends a stupid amount of time trying to figure something out because you get CONSUMED?? I almost threw in the towel about 5 times, BUT…
TA-DAH!!
🙌🏻
And…I have a complete obsession with what I call mullet tops. Business in the front, party in the back! Swipe to see.
AAAAAAND, the seller listed these clogs as the brand “Toffel” 😱
So I scored them for $17.99 with free shipping!
💃💃💃
Hope everyone is having a good weeekend so far!

Strapless Silk Dress…Happy 46th Bday to me! (almost 2 years late! haha)

Pictures originally taken 7/18/2020 (playing catch up!)
Words written on Instagram on that day…
Honestly, I’ve never been a huge fan of my birthday…not the getting older. It’s NOT the number!  Although the aches and pains can suck it.
•🤣
But, it was such an amazing day! I had some dear friends drop stuff off, had so many amazing texts, and social media messages.
☺️❤️
Then, my parents came over and we had a socially distanced dinner that was just what I wanted! (Seen in stories)
❤️

Most importantly…I didn’t COOK or CLEAN!!
🙌🏻
If you watched our stories, youl’l know that the original pics I took last night were slightly out of focus (problems of using a tripod) Truth be told, nobody but me would have noticed (swipe to see the pic of me and the Huz) if you’re zoom in, the leaves are crisp, we are not. Honestly, I was ok with it and was just happy to have captured some moments last night-ESPECIALLY with the Huz who hates pics!! But…
❤️
I decided to go back out this morning and take more, and I’m so glad I did! I got Maya out of her jammies!! We got some magical #SunFlare #rainbowflare thank you #goldenhour in the morning!!
✨💫

A belated birthday present…
🌈

And then….a few days later, I posted a close up…
My newest style revelation-why did it take me so long?
😳
Taking the attached belt off of your….dress, jumpsuit, romper…
🤗
And making it a headband!
💃
I’m not a matchy matchy person, yet I SO appreciate the option!
❤️
BUT…if I can add my own belt, or just take it away…and then add the attached belt to my hair? WIN!
👏🏻
Have you tried it? You SHOULD!

Swipe to see another option I wore yesterday but haven’t posted.
🙌🏻
Do you have a dress/jumpsuit/romper that you can now TOTALLY see doing this too?!
⁉️
Tag me! I’m new to the whole community trying thing, so….here we go!
🙈
But seriously, I want to know!!

Little White Dress + Clogs + BUBBLES!

Pictures originally taken 6/19/2020 (playing catch up!)
Words written on Instagram on that day…
LAST DAY OF 2nd grade!!! We took these to capture the last day of “school”! Which was over a week ago… But…I couldn’t get my act together to think of words I wanted to say…so, I’m delayed in posting.
🙈
The last few months have been…
😳😬
Joy. Laughter. TEARS (me). Learning. Growth. TEARS (me) Laughter.

SURVIVING!!! (BOTH OF US!) Maya has been a complete ROCK STAR! I’m SO proud of how she’s handled this time. She is 100% on board with WHY we need to be more protective, and if I’m honest…she’ s more vigilant that I am! Yet… Seeing so many friends on play dates every time we go out for walks…
😥😥
Me telling her she still needs to do learning when we get home. (Ok, not now that it’s summer, but I’m playing catch up!) I miiiiiiight still be the mom that says she still needs to read and play learning apps while I get shit done… SUMMER!
😬
It has been hard. I hate being the bad guy.
🙈
I’ve always been a bit of a mix. I’m strict with certain things, but FUN…I’m ALL IN-to my detriment at times!! Our lives were all about racing from thing to thing!! Honestly, it was a bit much…. Yet, now…all that has been taken off the table.
😩
I don’t know what the summer will hold.
🙈
BUT…I hope it includes some fun, laughter, and…maybe not bubbles!

They are kinda annoying!! 🤣🤣#LKKeepingitReal

All Black with a Side of….leopard!

Pictures originally taken 6/13/2020 (playing catch up!)
Words written on Instagram on that day…
ALL black clothing…all the time.

I’m a fan!

I feel like a lot of us default to it!

Flattering!

Easy!

YET…It can be hard to transition into spring/summer.

Fun frilly tops, paired with denim. Perfect for going out!

Or…happy hour with your parents and staying in….as is life for me and what happened tonight… (see stories)

Yet, you can easily add a pop of color with your shoes, accessories, or…

Add a pop of leopard print!

(Albeit your daughters pajamas!) swipe

WIN!

Off the Shoulder Jumpsuit with Clogs-TWINNING!

Originally taken  5/22/2020 (playing catch up!)
Words taken from Instagram post on that day.
Maya has been asking to wear off the shoulder tops, and I said…NO!

I’m so not ready for that!! I did tell her that she could pick what we wore, so I guess I have to.

BUT, THEN…I remembered that we had this jumpsuit, that I thrifted for her a few years ago, but…still have. OMG, yay me for hoarding!!! And, it’s not so bad….?? I’m SO not looking forward to the battle of what’s appropriate and what’s not!!! HELP ME!

Black Cropped Jumpsuit…Day to Night

Originally taken 5/23/2020 (playing catch up)

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

Maya didn’t want to take pictures, so I decided to do a “day to night” look tonight while she was watching a show with the Huz.

It’s amazing how many shots I can take in a short period of time when it’s just me!
😂
A black jumpsuit is such a closet staple in my opinion!
🖤🙌🏻
It can clearly be dressed up or down, and it’s such a safe bet when you don’t really know what to wear.
🖤
It’s ideal to pack on vacation, because it’s an outfit all unto itself!
🖤
Wardrobe UNICORN if you ask me! Dare I say it…even better than a LBD?
🖤😳🙈
Posting the “Night” version now, because…It’s SATURDAY! And I’m clearly going OUT!
💃
To my backyard…
🤣
Day version coming next!

Chunky Knits over Belted White Dress + Cowboy Boots | TWINNING for Easter!

Originally taken 4/12/2020 (Playing catch up)

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

Happy Easter!
 🐰❤️
I’m over here LOVING the theme for the @whowhatwear #WWWwardrobechallenge right now.

Oh…April 12th “Wear your most nightgown-like dress or dress-like nightgown.

DONE and DONE.  ✅✅
We made it out just as the sun was setting, but…came back for bedtime already in our jammies! 
Maya was like “should I change?” Nope! Just take off a few layers! As will I!
 😂
We had a somewhat chill day. Started off with baskets of goodies, and an Easter Egg hunt in our front yard. (See stories) Then…it was pretty much day as usual. Thankfully it was such an amazing day here in Seattle. Sunny, yet still chilly. We got in our two walks and Maya got in a bike ride while I watered all our plants.

THEN…the Huz made dinner. Which is basically the holy grail as far as I’m concerned!
 🙌🏻🙌🏻❤️
Happy Easter to all of you. I hope you found positives in the day, and enjoyed your family time.

But…to be honest. Dinner went late. We came outside to take pics as the sun was setting, and Maya ran off to video it. Like…where are you going?!!

Um…??? 
Then she comes back and it’s literally dark. Don’t mind me….trying to take some Easter pics.

So pretty tho!

Swipe to see…(It’s in our stories, obviously)

Denim Jacket + White Denim + Clog Boots + Cherry Blossoms!!

I’m playing catch up when I can…

Originally taken 4/11/2020

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

Day 41 (of quarantine)

I’ve been dying to take pics with the cherry blossoms in bloom all over our neighborhood, but haven’t felt right about taking pics anywhere besides right in front of our house!

BUT…@e_for_elisa said to go out, find cherry blossoms, and tag her, so… 

🌸
I took advantage of last night’s hair, and if I’m honest…last night’s mascara that never got washed off! Helloooooo natural smokey eye!
 😂💁🏼‍♀️
We headed out early before everyone got up and started their morning walks. We traveled a block away from our house, and… Yes, we drove. I almost forgot how to drive!
 😳
I had planned the #WWWwardrobechallenge for today, which was…

 “Put on anything glittery for a Saturday shindig in”.  💫✨
Well….you can’t really tell that my top is a shimmery, but it is. 😐 Maya has glittery appliques on her sweatshirt, but…nope, can’t see those either. 🙄
AND…her shoes have gold thread in them. You can’t see that either?? Well, that’s too bad.
 🤣
Oh well, we tried.  🤷🏼‍♀️
But we NAILED capturing the cherry blossoms,💃🙌🏻 so it was all worth it! Only saw one person right as we finished up! •
I had planned on only taking 5 minutes, but since nobody was around we stayed for 10-whoopsie! 😬

AND…

“Style an accessory in an unusual way.” @whowhatwear #WWWwardrobechallenge

Is it cheating to knock out two challenges in one shoot? I think no! 🤣

I’m a big fan of knotting tops with high waisted denim, so I thought it would be fun to do a little different variation. I took this vintage butterfly brooch and cinched my top through it. I didn’t even need to pierce the top!

I just realized that I might have impailed Maya on the 2nd shot tho! 😳😬 I had hopes of doing more early morning shoots, but so far this has been our only one… I’m NOT a morning person… ☕️☕️☕️😴 Happy Tuesday! Or whatever day it is… 😂🙃🤪
