Vintage Chemise + High Wasited Crop Flares + FLORAL CROWNS!!

Ugh….these were taken SO long ago (almost TWO months!)

It was such a magical day!

Maya and I went to an event hosted by Kirsty of  The Kirsty Files , Jenn of What Jenn Wore  at Pacific Place.  

I’ve seen some of the events both Kirsty and Jenn have put on, and they look SO fun and always have a creative aspect to them.  When I saw that this event would include the making of a floral crown, I knew I had to ask if kids could come!  Kirsty said yes, so I was all in!

What do you wear to a fashion event…that’s always the question.  I see people dressed to the nines, but that’s not me. Especially if I’m bringing Maya with me.

SO…vintage top, my fav high waisted crop flares, and some comfy sandals-DONE!
I can only hope that she will come to more events with me, because we had the best time!  And…it carried through the entire day!
Here are the floral crowns we made,  And by we….I mean, I made them, while Maya walked around and schmoozed with the guests.  But….let’s be honest.  That was fine by me.  We were both in our happy place!
I borrowed this image from Jenn’s Instagram.

And this next one from Kirsty’s blog post,

Both images taken by Saskia Potter.

We all seriously had SO much fun making these crowns!  Everyone’s was different, and ALL of them were beautiful!  All the flowers were graciously provided by the talented Holly Yee

Ruffle Tees + Released Hem denim Culottes + Platform Tennis Shoes | Basics with a twist!

 I’m all about classics with some “quirkiness” to them… 🤪😍

One of my newfound favs in that regard is @nationltd This isn’t a sponsored post, because all my amazing finds of theirs have been via @ebay ❤️ I get compliments every time I wear one of their tops. These little ruffle sleeves? LOVE! 🤗😍

And platform sneakers are my new go to as well! Comfort, yet added height! @ash has some amazing options and again…all mine are via @ebayfashion, so this is my true opinion!
Looooove!

And…here’s a video of what was really going on when I took this next shot.  You’d never think I got anything…I wasn’t sure either haha!

When you use a remote timer, but you’re so far away from the camera that you can’t tell if it’s
taking a shot… AND…when you wear culottes…they aren’t always flattering-whoops.  But so
darn cute!
Yeah, this is what I envisioned most of the images looking like haha. Can you see what I wanted to do here?
Nope.  Didin’t get what I wanted…oh, well.
Here’s a few more videos that Maya took that I clearly didn’t know she was taking-ha!
Me- “Maya, are you taking a video?”
Her- “Yeah”
I’m clearly trying to get her in my shot, yet…not happening haha.
Happy Friday!
