Knotted Peasant Top + High Waisted Crop Flares + Birkenstock Gizehs

I had all these great intentions of blogging on our Mexico pics while we were on Christmas Break, but then reality and a never ending cold (I was seriously sick for the entire 2 1/2 weeks!!) kicked my ass, and…well.

I blogged nothing.

So, I’m catching up now, and hope to eventually also catch up on the pics I took from our LAST vacation to Los Cabos back during Spring Break 2018.  Maybe for this next Spring Break??  Haha.

All in all, I’d love to do a write up of both places we stayed and what we did…eventually.

Until then.

A fairly simple comfy outfit.  High wasited crops are my go to right now.  So easy and comfy.  These had a built in hem that was too short for my legs, so I let it out, and I LOVE THEM!  Funny enough, the brand has an almost identical pair to these with the hems let out.  Great minds and all…

And, while I like to tuck things into high waisted pants, it’s so much easier and more flattering to tie tops right at the waist!

No lumps!  No fussing with retucking when you go potty-haha, yes, I went there!

Yay!

Top- Current Elliott (eBay)
Jeans- McGuire “Bessette Culottes” Mine came with a shorter hem, but I let them. (eBay)
Sandals- Birkenstock “Gizeh” (thrifted, like new for $25!!)
Keeping it Real…
I know I post these a lot, but I was a little cranky that I lost this amazing sun flare by the time I
actually got into the frame… 😦 . Imagine me IN with all this light goodness, ok?
See that woman in the distance?  Yep, of course she came RIGHT up the walkway…again…don’t
mind me!

Off the Shoulder Top + High Waisted Raw Hem Crop Flare + Birkenstocks

 This is one of my favorite shoots we’d done in a while.  It was totally impromptu outside of our house, which is usually when Maya gets into it the most.

Oddly enough…favorite shoot or no, we took them FIVE months ago….whoops.

So, let’s pretend those are yellow and orange leaves behind us!

We actually had a nice sunny day today, so the outfits could have happened! These were one of the first flares that I chopped.  They are my FAV!!  And…the ones that started the chopping addiction ha! Baby Birks!!  DYING! These next images are some of my absolute favs of us! And….Maya totally schooling me on the art of posing!

Boho Top + High Waisted Crop Flares + Gold Sandals

 Yup…trying to cram in the summer posts!

My favorite thing as of late is a high tie waisted crop flare!

Funny thing.  When I wore these….3 months ago… I wasn’t as busy!

I thought…”I’ll post these someday soon…”

Yet, now, I’m trying to cram in all the summer things before they look ridiculous. And I CAN’T let these images of US go by…. And…ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

DYING.

I thrifted this jumpsuit for $1.50, and it didn’t have a brand in it.

I want it in my size though!

And, no, I didn’t remove the lens cover on the ground that I forgot yet…
removed on ALL THE OTHER SHOTS!!
And the actual lifts themselves…. 😉

Belted Boho Dress + Sandals

 Truth be told, these were taken back in the middle of June.  This summer has been a whirlwind, but I’m determined to post some of these while the sun is still shining haha.

I used to be jeans only, but I’m really loving wearing dresses more often.  The ease…the comfort…and they instantly make . you look like you put some effort into your outfit.  In reality, they are a total time cheat-WIN!

Love the little faux leather straps with the leather tassles! Maya on the other hand, has ALWAYS been a dress girl!  🙂 And…thankfully also a world class cuddler! Hahaha.  Trying really hard to be grumpy.  Ok, I can laugh about it now… Thankfully, it usually ends up in laughter.

Getting creative with my “Maya taking pictures of us between my legs” shots 🙂
blog-outtake-1 I bought silly string thinking it would be a fun shot having her spray it at me.  She wasn’t strong enough to push it down and spray it haha.  She finally got it, but it just drizzled out.  Probably a good thing since we obviously picked it all up before leaving!  She just stood there dribbling it into my bag, and though tit was hilarious!blog-outtake-2 “HI!!!  Can I pet your dog?!!”

Boho Tops + Ripped Skinnies + Gold Sandals | Twinning is winning!!

 It is soooo rare that I can get Maya into jeans anymore.  All she wants to wear are dresses, but…Every once in a while I can still talk her into it.  On the days she has swim lessons, I tell her she has to wear jeans, because they can be worn easily over her swimsuit at the gym before her lesson…

Yes, she could easily throw a dress on over her swimsuit, but WHATEVER.  She hasn’t questioned me yet haha.  She has SO many pairs of jeans that I’ve thrifted just sitting in her closet!  I have to get her into them every once in a while!!

And…I couldn’t resist somewhat twinning with her, and ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THAT POSE?!!!Blog Millau Lace Up Boho Top Genetic Denim Twig Mystique Gold Sandals-1 I want to eat her upBlog Millau Lace Up Boho Top Genetic Denim Twig Mystique Gold Sandals-2 Blog Millau Lace Up Boho Top Genetic Denim Twig Mystique Gold Sandals-3 Blog Millau Lace Up Boho Top Genetic Denim Twig Mystique Gold Sandals-6 Blog Millau Lace Up Boho Top Genetic Denim Twig Mystique Gold Sandals-7 Blog Millau Lace Up Boho Top Genetic Denim Twig-4 Blog Millau Lace Up Boho Top Genetic Denim Twig-5 Blog PeekKids Floral Top Levis Destroyed Skinny Jeans Gold Saltwater Sun San Sandals-1Yup, always a toy in hand… Blog PeekKids Floral Top Levis Destroyed Skinny Jeans Gold Saltwater Sun San Sandals-2AND, always petting every dog we see and asking if she can give them a treat!

UGH.  I had more issues with the shutter release not working!  Then when I thought I fixed it, I must have messed up the focus while doing so!  I have 40+ SUPER CUTE shots that are focused like this ;(  Maya was having fun taking my picture, and then ran and jumped into my arms giving me all these super sweet BLURRY kisses… I really shouldn’t complain, but it bummed me out.  Thank goodness I went over and checked!Blog Outtake
