High Waisted Denim + Crop Tops + Clogs | 70’s Influence

 It seems like people are always saying “The 70’s influence is coming back!”  Honestly, I don’t think it’s every left.  There are always 70’s influences that are in style.  It was a great decade for inspiration.  All the bohemian flowing looks…the wide leg denim…the amazing hats!!  I could go on and on.  Although, maybe it’s because I was born in the 70’s?  I don’t think so 🙂

I stumbled upon these jeans at the thrift store over the weekend.  They were in the girls section, but looked like they might fit, so for $5 I grabbed them.  I LOVE THEM!!!!  They are high waisted, and because they are meant for a 12 year old, the length is perfect!! haha.  Only slightly embarrased that these are meant for a middle schooler, but whatever!  Once again, my lesson in looking outside the box while thrifting was a big success!Blog Zara Tiered Crop Top Vintage Belt 7FAM Girls Slimmy Vintage Clogs-1 Blog Zara Tiered Crop Top Vintage Belt 7FAM Girls Slimmy Vintage Clogs-2 Blog Zara Tiered Crop Top Vintage Belt 7FAM Girls Slimmy Vintage Clogs-3 Blog Zara Tiered Crop Top Vintage Belt 7FAM Girls Slimmy Vintage Clogs-4 Blog Zara Tiered Crop Top Vintage Belt 7FAM Girls Slimmy Vintage Clogs-5 Maya found a humongous ant!  She named him Dan, and carried him around on our walk for about 20 minutes 🙂Blog Tea Collection Wrap Neck Mini Dress Navy Saltwater Sun San Sandals-1Blog Zara Tiered Crop Top Vintage Belt 7FAM Girls Slimmy Vintage Clogs-6 Blog Zara Tiered Crop Top Vintage Belt 7FAM Girls Slimmy Vintage Clogs-7 Blog Zara Tiered Crop Top Vintage Belt 7FAM Girls Slimmy Vintage Clogs-8 Blog Zara Tiered Crop Top Vintage Belt 7FAM Girls Slimmy Vintage Clogs-9 Blog Zara Tiered Crop Top Vintage Belt 7FAM Girls Slimmy Vintage Clogs-10 I attempted to have her set him free for a few minutes, but that didn’t last.Blog Zara Tiered Crop Top Vintage Belt 7FAM Girls Slimmy Vintage Clogs-11Blog Tea Collection Wrap Neck Mini Dress Navy Saltwater Sun San Sandals-2Blog Tea Collection Wrap Neck Mini Dress Navy Saltwater Sun San Sandals-3I was actually a little sad for Dan that we relocated him so far away.  Hopefully he’ll find his way back to his family if he had one…Blog Tea Collection Wrap Neck Mini Dress Navy Saltwater Sun San Sandals-4Blog Tea Collection Wrap Neck Mini Dress Navy Saltwater Sun San Sandals-5Blog Tea Collection Wrap Neck Mini Dress Navy Saltwater Sun San Sandals-6Blog Tea Collection Wrap Neck Mini Dress Navy Saltwater Sun San Sandals-7Blog Tea Collection Wrap Neck Mini Dress Navy Saltwater Sun San Sandals-8Rolling down the hill towards my Christmas tree shadow 🙂Blog Tea Collection Wrap Neck Mini Dress Navy Saltwater Sun San Sandals-9Blog Tea Collection Wrap Neck Mini Dress Navy Saltwater Sun San Sandals-10On me…

Yes, that would be a measuring tape, aka Maya’s snake.  She found it in my desk drawer (design student supplies!) and she wouldn’t leave the car without it haha.  I finally managed to take it out of her hand, and then she was NOT feeling taking any pics.  So…we went home and played.Blog Outtake Faux Fur

A little fun before work…

 I actually found myself ahead of schedule the other day.  I had a shoot during the week, and I found myself with 15 extra minutes before I was taking Maya to a drop in daycare.  So…we went outside and danced a little… Blog Hm High Low Top J Brand DarkVintage Glitter Toms-3 Blog Hm High Low Top J Brand DarkVintage Glitter Toms-4 Blog Hm High Low Top J Brand DarkVintage Glitter Toms-5Blog Hm High Low Top J Brand DarkVintage Glitter Toms-1Blog Hm High Low Top J Brand DarkVintage Glitter Toms-2Funny story.  Maya is going to start preschool next week (so excited!!).  Last week, we had a orientation picnic, and there was a list of school supplies we needed to bring.  Of course I waited until the day before to go to Target and round everything up.  The last thing on the list was a “head shot” of your child.  Of all the items on the list, this was the one thing I didn’t have!  ME!    The professional photographer, who takes pictures of her daughter every day.  No head shot.  I honestly couldn’t tell you the last time I printed images out.  Oh wait, yes I can.  Every year at Christmas, I print out a big stack to distribute to family members.  Anywho.  The night before the picnic I took Maya into our backyard and got these images below.  The one right below is the one I printed out.  Not at the professional lab I use, but at my local drugstore…  #momlife 😉Blog Hanna Andersson Boho Dress StrideRite Sandal-1 Blog Hanna Andersson Boho Dress StrideRite Sandal-4Blog Hanna Andersson Boho Dress StrideRite Sandal-5 Blog Hanna Andersson Boho Dress StrideRite Sandal-3 Blog Hanna Andersson Boho Dress StrideRite Sandal-2And for her reward, we ran through sprinklers 🙂Blog Hanna Andersson Boho Dress StrideRite Sandal-6On me…

Back to being ridiculously busy at work.  This is my escape/fun, but no clothing links for a while, which is probably ok, since we are entering into fall season.

My inner Boho…

Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-1 Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-2 I have totally been drawn to super wide leg denim lately.  Sadly, my legs are SO short that I need to hem or fake cuff them and then even with that wear 4 inch heels.  That is SO not happening on regular basis.  It was fun to dress up like I did before having Maya for a little bit though… Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-3 Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-4 Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-5Um…see?  Running after her in 4 inch heels.  NOT GOOD. Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-6This is her look after I’ve been yelling “Maya, stop!  Maya…stop running!!” Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-7FINE… Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-8These were my 2nd jeans I distressed.  I bought them at a thrift store for cheap ($2?).  They were a bit worn, so I figured I just go all out and make it look like they were meant to be that way 🙂 Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-9On me…
